It was a beautiful experience! The staff was attentive and knowledgeable. The two-course meal was scrumptious. The pastries that reflected renowned works of Irish art were spectacular.

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.

    Overall enjoyed the experience. Our waitress Rianna (spelling may not be correct) was excellent. Selection of food was lovely. While I don't want to be negative about a lovely experience, I did find all 3 desserts extremely sweet & did not enjoy them but that's more a reflection of my taste than anything else.

    I had booked the afternoon tea about reading it on the Merrion's website. It was something I looked forward to for months and it didn't disappoint. The food was stellar but the service was even better. Everyone was so helpful and took time to explain the tea and the items served. I'd come back to Ireland just to experience the art tea again!

    We really enjoyed the Art Tea, particularly the chicken sandwiches, scones and lemon cake. The Art desserts were a real highlight and made the afternoon tea special. The serving staff were very attentive and highly professional. We liked the formal yet relaxed setting and thought that the harp music really added to the experience.
