Merrion Hotel (Dublin, Ireland)
Not only has The Merrion Hotel embraced afternoon tea as an art form but works of art have literally inspired it. According to Food & Wine, the hotel’s pastry chef (Paul Kelly), a member of the Irish Olympic culinary team, “thought it would be fun to create a tea around the hotel’s private art collection, considered the largest in Ireland apart from the National Gallery.”
Relax in the colorful Georgian drawing room as you sample the extraordinary offerings, including the “LEGO-like” hues of the feuilletines, macaroons and mousse. Every pastry is a unique creation giving you an excellent excuse to return again and again.
