Eat, Drink and Be Merri(on) in Dublin
November 7, 2016
This year, The Merrion is offering a range of special packages and offerings for the holidays designed to showcase the seasonal Irish festivities.
EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRI(ON)
Through the month of December, a festive Christmas menu will be served in the award-winning Cellar Restaurant, culminating with a five-course Christmas lunch and dinner prepared by Chef Ed Cooney. The festive menu will include: open butternut squash ravioli; "The Duke" (the hotel's interpretation of a classic Beef Wellington); and The Merrion's signature "Festive Snowman" holiday dessert, made of white chocolate and orange blossom bavarois with mango sorbet and vanilla sable. Sunday Brunch will be served in The Cellar Bar and feature the best of Irish comfort food, along with a special visit from Father Christmas. A special Afternoon Tea will be served in the Georgian Drawing Room, which will include finger sandwiches, gingerbread, meringues, mince pies and other delicious homemade treats; and on December 4th, 11th and 18th, the tea will be accompanied by Christmas carols. Guests can also indulge in a traditional New Year's Day brunch in The Cellar Bar, for which Chef Cooney will serve up American and Irish comfort food and offer an extensive menu of classic cocktails and fresh fruit smoothies designed to rejuvenate even the weariest reveler.
CHRISTMAS FOR THE KIDS
At 6pm on Christmas Eve, The Merrion's gardens will set the scene for Christmas as young guests are invited to meet Father Christmas around the Christmas tree in the Front Hall. Each child will receive a gift and parents can relax with a glass of mulled wine and mince pies while being serenaded by Christmas carols. On December 24th and 26th, younger guests can meet up in the Kids Zone for a special program of activities, including face painting, arts and crafts, storytelling and a magic show.
