Created from 4 restored Georgian townhouses, The Merrion Hotel is Dublin’s premier 5-star dining venue. The hotel houses a number of exquisite bars and restaurants, and with 2 AA Rosettes to its name, the Cellar Restaurant is the jewel in the crown, specialising in modern Irish cuisine.
Executive chef Ed Cooney infuses the finest local ingredients into the creative, European-influenced recipes found on the Cellar Restaurant menu. Indulge in phenomenal favourites such as the hazelnut-crusted Ballinwillin roasted venison loin served with buttermilk carrot puree and pomme fondant, or the delicious Kilmore Quay grilled black sole, with garlic spinach and zesty beurre noisette.
The stunning ‘Art Tea’ at The Merrion Hotel in Dublin showcases an array of miniature sweet treats inspired by the work of J.B. Yeats, William Scott and more, served in the magnificent hotel drawing rooms. An extensive range of hand-picked wines are available from the 18th-century wine vault, making for an ideal accompaniment to the wonderful food on offer.
Situated in the fashionable shopping and entertainment hub of Dublin 2, the Cellar Restaurant at The Merrion Hotel is just a 9-minute walk from Pearse Train Station.

Very good food, not over-priced, Very friendly and professional staff.

Booked to go as an engagement present to ourselves. The food was very well presented at all times and the tea was very very good.
Some of the bread had started to harden, maybe they are prepared in the morning and we were the 4.30 sitting but was slightly disappointed at this. The deserts were a visual treat and really a nice way to finish the afternoon tea.
The ambiance of the room was fantastic, the period features and the addition of the art book were a great touch.
Received the wrong bill at the end of the meal, not a problem but again wouldn't expect this from an establishment like the Merrion.

We enjoyed a splendid Afternoon Tea on a Sunday.
Very enjoyable, relaxing experience.
Our Waitresses & Waiter were extremely attentive & non intrusive at the same time. They both displayed excellent knowledge. The food was delicious from start to finish.
The setting, surrounded by wonderful Art work, added to the whole ambiance.
A most enjoyable experience was had by all of us.
What better way to spend a Sunday Afternoon / Evening.
