WIN! Yeats-inspired Afternoon Tea At The Merrion

I will arise now, and go for afternoon tea...


In celebration of the 150 anniversary of the birth of Ireland’s most famous poet, WB Yeats, The Merrion Hotel Dublin has announced a ‘Yeats Season’ throughout June 2015 – letting guests enjoy a Yeats-inspired Afternoon Tea and a new signature Clover Club cocktail.

Sounds delightful, doesn't it? So if you want to be in with the chance to win afternoon tea for two, read on...


The Yeats Tea will feature three irresistible pastries after sandwiches and scones, inspired by his poetry, his persona and his passions; 'Innisfree' - a rhubarb and honey choux bun, 'Spectacle' - a milk chocolate and caramel cremeux with lemon cream and 'Mystic' - vanilla bavarois with strawberry jelly.

And to top it all off, guests get to raise a toast to the great poet with one of his favourite tipples – a perfectly pink Clover Club cocktail. A delicious concoction of gin, lemon juice, raspberry syrup and egg white.

The winner of the competition can choose from the following three dates; June 6th, 13th or 20th. On these selected dates Yeats poetry will be read by renowned Irish actor, Barry McGovern, in the Drawing Rooms.
