March 2016, we enjoyed Art Afternoon Tea for 2 while staying at the Merrion Hotel, Dublin, Ireland While staying at The Merrion Hotel Dublin, Ireland in March 2016 we enjoyed in-room Art Afternoon Tea, which is based on the artworks which are exhibited throughout the hotel. || ART AFTERNOON TEA AT THE MERRION HOTEL || DUBLIN || IRELAND || ENJOYED DURING OUR STAY IN OUR MAIN HOUSE DELUXE KING ROOM || HIGHLY RECOMMENDED || OUR STAY IN MARCH 2016 || THIS WAS OUR 2nd STAY AT THIS BEAUTIFUL HOTEL IN THE HEART OF DUBLIN || by UggBoy UggGirl, on Flickr When ordering I was advised that different sandwiches were served than on the menu. This wasn’t a problem. I asked to receive only plain scones, because my fiancé is allergic against raisins. We ordered green tea, but if no specific tea is requested, Breakfast Tea would be served. Additionally we had two orange juices. The tea arrived within the time frame, but unfortunately there were a mix of scones. We were promised we would get an additional plate with more plain ones, which was delivered promptly. The setup was beautiful with three tiers and an additional plate for some of the Merrion art inspired sweet treats. On the lowest level were the savories, in the middle the scones, clotted cream, butter, lemon curd and raspberry jam and on top the cakes. The tea came in a silver pot; there were linens and a flower on the table, and the table was laid out with bespoke cutlery and Wedgewood porcelain. The delicious savory items included a pea mousse, chicken, smoked salmon, cucumber and ham and cheese sandwiches and an egg brioche. The sweet items were lemon bread, Porter and Battenberg cake, which were inspired by Sean Scully’s abstract paintings. Another one was inspired by art hanging in one of the Drawing Rooms. It was sumptuous, memorable and the presentation was beautiful. The cost were 92 Euro (ca. 102.90 USD) for two. We enjoyed the meal very much and would look forward to enjoy the Art Afternoon Tea at The Merrion Hotel again. Would we recommend this particular Afternoon Tea to a friend? YES! Would we want to enjoy this particular Afternoon Tea in our future again? YES!
