Our 1st dinner in Dublin and at our hotel. Had a pleasant salmon entrée. My husband had his Irish Breakfast there every morning. Good but so overpriced.

This restaurant ambience is great, the ratio of staff to customers is very good. I enjoyed my appetizer and dessert very much. I had the chicken as a main and it was a bit bland, but I assume that is because they know that those of us ordering the chicken aren't very adventurous. Otherwise, it was a delightful evening out,... More

An excellent tip from our Dublin Bus tour was to eat in the lesser tourist areas. The Cellar is an excellent restaurant with a stylish atmosphere and serving first class fish and chips!

We were led into a dungeonlike-like stone walled basement area which... More

As we were staying at the Merrion we thought we'd call in for Brunch while we were there and I'm so glad we did! There was so much choice, everything was delicious and there was so much of it! We had pancakes, some pastries and some sausages and couldn't finish any of it! Highly recommend it!
