Garden Room 2.jpg

Light and airy dining space in the Merrion hotel, with floor to ceiling windows facing out onto the gardens. All day dining from executive head chef Ed Cooney, serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, with an extensive menu featuring plenty of Irish produce. Good for special occasions or eating at odd hours.

"I like the Garden Room. Choose carefully and lunch won’t come with a bill that requires a defibrillator charging on standby." 8/10.

"The Merrion has long been my favourite hotel in Dublin, and the new Garden Room squares the circle in that the hotel now has a restaurant that does what all the best hotel restaurants do: provide a relaxed and unpretentious venue that works for everyone." Food 8/10. Value 8/10.

"Grilled black sole for me (€40) was absolutely ace. A perfectly cooked chunky specimen, retaining the necessary bite, it was boned and served on creamed garlic baby spinach with a lemon beurre noisette."

"...a buzzy room that felt pretty far removed from the boring hotel restaurants we’re used to in this country..."
