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.

    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.
