Win a luxurious overnight stay in The Merrion Hotel with dinner for two in The Garden Room Restaurant
As part of Food Month in The Irish Times, we have teamed up with The Merrion Hotel to celebrate the opening of the brand new Garden Room Restaurant. We are giving one lucky reader the chance to win an overnight stay at The Merrion Hotel in a luxurious Double Room with dinner for two in The Garden Room Restaurant and full Irish breakfast the following morning.
Set within the exquisite private gardens of the Merrion, Dublin’s 5-star luxury hotel, the new Garden Room restaurant is something new and utterly unique in the city.
Light and airy, with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open out to a terrace for true al fresco dining in the summer, the Garden Restaurant is a relaxed, less formal affair.
An all-day restaurant, the Garden Room is somewhere to unwind with friends over brunch, gather around a lunch-time sharing plate and a crisp bottle of rosé or escape the bustle of the city over a relaxed dinner.
The menu, created by gifted executive chef Ed Cooney, keeps everything brilliantly simple.
Think Liscannor Crab brioche baps, smoked carrot blunts and truffle & parmesan arancini – with fresh Irish sourdough made in-house every morning. Fritto misto and rib eye tartare sit alongside delicious salads, organic Clare Island Salmon, Dublin Bay prawns, rack of Kildare lamb or loin of Kilkenny rose veal.
The Garden Room is open all day, serving brunch, snacks, lunch and dinner.
To be in with a chance to win this fantastic prize, simply answer the competition question below.
