Overview

A warm welcome always awaits in The Cellar Bar at The Merrion hotel. Located in the original 18th Century wine vaults, with its bare bricked walls and vaulted ceilings, The Cellar Bar is an intrinsic part of Dublin's vibrant social scene. The Cellar Bar features fifty carefully selected wines, available by the glass. Furthermore, to complement the extensive wine offering, Executive Chef, Ed Cooney, has devised mouthwatering lunch and evening menus prepared simply with plenty of Merrion style, a perfect choice when dining in Dublin.

This Basement bar has gone through a recent refurbishment but to the untrained eye its hard to notice what has changed. Perhaps it was more of a structural improvement. It is in any event a very fine cellar with many corners for privacy are as...More

Beautiful setting and my husband and I enjoyed chatting with Gustavo. I had 2 Aviation cocktails and a Caesar salad...both delicious. My husband had gin martinis and the Gumbo, which was very good.

We wanted somewhere out of the way but still a stone's throw from Dublin City centre. And we wanted quirky. We found it in The Cellar Bar. A beautiful bar in the evening. During the day it suffers from politicians and the upper echelon civil...More
