Another amazing Xmas at this stellar property... Of special note this year was the GENUINE friendliness of the entire Room Service, Front Desk and (incredibly/refreshingly) the Operator (!) staff. I should also mention that i received an email follow-up to my "guest questionnaire" which i dropped off at the front-desk at check-out. In the spirit of constructive feedback i had pointed out very minor hiccups which i thought mgmt might appreciate. Well, they did, and i was informed that "suitable re-training will be put in place". How's that for being on top of things! Keep it up Merrion, you are better than ever.
P/S: The Dead & Coffee Cake
A unique hidden-gem of a discovery in, of all places, Deansgrange Cemetary in Blackrock. This cemetary deserves a visit on its own (antique) merits, but we were delighted to stumble upon The Tranquil Tea Rooms within the cemetary grounds. Hands-on owner serving up what was the best coffee cake i've ever tasted plus delicious French-press coffee, scones, walnut cake and other traditional Irish treats. Seek it out if you are in Blackrock.
