Let your imagination take hold as you admire the old-world décor in this lounge. Antique furniture upholstered in monochrome tones of blues, mauve and sepia provides a soothing contrast to the pretty floral motif on the walls and carpet.
The light from the crystal chandeliers is tinted by the reflection of the stained-glass window above the entrance, where a portable ladies’ writing desk and a small collection of musty books from the 1800s lie side by side with the daily papers.
Sitting over the fireplace is a bust of George Bernard Shaw himself, who was a regular visitor to Parknasilla. It was here that he who wrote his play, ‘St. Joan,’ in 1925. He would be happy to think that The Shaw Lounge was a place for our guests to come to write, to read, to relax or to enjoy the art of a lively conversation.
