The savoury choices on the vegan option were absolutely superb. Unfortunately the very beautiful art pieces were not vegan so another option was presented. This has delicious choices but the art pieces truly are magnificent. The staff are warm , friendly and attentive but not too much. My only minor complaint is that there is no music or background buzz so it lacks a little bit of atmosphere. However, it is a very beautiful setting and we loved looking at the art afterwards.

My only reservation from giving 5 stars was that I felt the sandwiches could have been more memorable. I have had various afternoon teas in Harrods, Fortnums, the Westbury and the Shelbourne and I will say though that this was great value. Thank you for having us

The service was excellent and the food was really nice. Loved the sandwiches and Battenberg cake especially. The pastries designed on three of the paintings were fabulous. The staff were extremely welcoming and attentive and it was lovely to sit by the open fire and escape for a number of hours. The take away art catalogue and pastries were lovely too. Definitely recommend to anyone considering an afternoon tea.

The seats were desperately uncomfortable. My friend sat on a ‘lumpy’ sofa that she complained about. I sat on a chair which was equally uncomfortable. There was absolutely no atmosphere. Some nice music - either piano or classical, would have been nice in the background. All in all it was a very underwhelming experience for the money.

Service was wonderful, fabulous selection of teas and cakes, all of which were lovely. Only tiny constructive criticism is that the sandwiches could be a bit more exciting and maybe a little interesting savoury instead of one of the cakes. Overall fabulous!

The Merrion Hotel's "Art" Afternoon Tea - surrounded by the Merrion's amazing art collection - is a wonderful experience. The afternoon tea itself is as delicious as one would expect from the Dublin's best hotel but it is the attention to detail (significant efforts were made to provide dairy-free alternatives for one of our party and fresh tea was offered continuously), the charming staff and, of course, the wonderful surroundings (the art!) that really made the experience special. Sittings are for 2 hours but we were among the last sitting of the day, the table was not immediately required and we long outstayed our booking (but not the Merrion's welcome). Perfect for any special occasion and, if you don't have a special occasion to celebrate, this will make an ordinary afternoon very special indeed!

The setting is beautiful and I enjoyed the artwork immensely. When we sat down, the room was extremely quiet, meaning I felt I should whisper. Some gentle music would have added atmosphere. The food was fine, but fine is not what you expect from afternoon tea at a 5 star hotel, and a price of €55/pp before bubbles. A book of the hotel's artwork is offered and that is a very nice touch. Food is presented in two 'courses'. The first is sandwiches, scones and simple bakes (Battenburg, lemon drizzle and porter). The sandwiches were pleasant but the bread was already becoming stale, and crispy to touch. The brioche in the egg sandwich was excellent, though the egg itself was bland. The scones were very good, with delicious lemon curd, jam and clotted cream. The bakes were overly sweet and very ordinary. After these things I really did not have room for round two - three cakes inspired by artwork from within the hotel. I ate one and brought the others home. These cakes were beautiful but the flavours were nothing exceptional. Again, extremely sweet! I think this afternoon tea might work better if the two courses were combined, so that there is more initial 'wow' factor and so people can opt for the finest cakes before they are too full from the average ones! Total cost was €125 (when including two glasses of champagne). I would not recommend this afternoon tea as it ultimately felt overpriced and underwhelming.

If she spoke slower it might help but not sure.
