The Garden Room at The Merrion: Al fresco dining in the heart of Dublin

New for Summer 2018, The Garden Room at The Merrion – Dublin’s finest five-star address – is inviting guests to indulge in an Irish summer tradition within the leafy haven of its private garden terrace.

With all the grace and romance of its classical 18th century garden, The Garden Room and its adjoining terrace at The Merrion form the perfect backdrop for guests to enjoy a sumptuous al fresco picnic in the glorious Dublin sunshine.

Served daily from 3pm to 6pm, guests can sip on ice-cold house lemonade and enjoy the mouthwatering The Garden Room Picnic, designed by Executive Chef Ed Cooney and offering a delectable selection of warm and cold bites, both savoury and sweet.

As Dublin’s only five-star hotel with its own private garden – tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city – the idyllic picnic spot is both a romantic hideaway and a relaxed space for families and friends alike.

Originally designed by the noted Irish landscape artist, Jim Reynolds, the gardens mirror the Georgian history of The Merrion, recalling the 18th century with box hedges, water features, pathways, statuary and obelisks.

The Garden Room Picnic can also be enjoyed in the elegant The Garden Room restaurant, a light and airy space which opens on to the garden – and becomes part of it.

The Garden Room Picnic will be served from June to September, served 3-6pm every day either in The Garden Room or out on the Terrace. Priced at €29.50 per person.
