There is nothing like The Garden Room in Dublin. In this city, it’s utterly unique.
As the now-famous Merrion grew, a courtyard garden appeared right in the very heart of the hotel. A formal garden, complete with fountain, overlooked by the drawing rooms and guestrooms on three sides and the blue skies above.
On the fourth side, to the east, we have created a light and airy space that opens onto the garden and becomes a part of it. This is The Garden Room.
From the beginning we wanted it to be a less formal affair. Somewhere to unwind and laugh with friends over a refreshingly cold bottle of rosé and a deliciously fresh seafood salad. A secret garden where you’ll find little groups of people who love each other’s company and others, dining alone, happy to enjoy a brief escape with just themselves. Weather permitting, we’ll open those great floor-to-ceiling glass doors to the garden terrace for true al fresco dining.
Our menus were all painstakingly designed by master head chef Ed Cooney.
His idea is to keep everything brilliantly simple. To not over-complicate anything but to help keep The Garden Room a relaxed, informal, sanctuary of sanity. The menus feature modern Irish food from artisan food producers and our wonderful natural harvest from land and sea.
