Beautiful outdoor terraces are a rare find in Dublin city center…but not this summer, as the secret is out! The newly refurbished Dylan Hotel has not only launched a new restaurant, The Eddison, and a new cocktail bar, The Ruby Room, but also a brand new outdoor terrace aptly named, The Nurserie, for its selection of Victorian plants including large tree ferns. A hidden gem in the heart of the city, The Nurserie is the ideal location to catch the evening rays, as the terrace enjoys direct sunshine from early afternoon until sunset.
The partially covered terrace, which can be enjoyed all year round, is the perfect spot to retreat to this summer. Brimming with freshly potted plants and flowers, The Nurserie is a decadent urban oasis, facing south to make the most of the summer evening sun. With pops of red and grey from the stone flooring and rope chairs, The Nurserie is the place to relax and unwind with a cold glass of Rosé, a delicious cocktail or one of the Dylan’s very own, low kcal, refreshing Champagne ice pops, certain to put you in the summer mood.
Guests at The Eddison can choose to dine al fresco in The Nurserie for breakfast, lunch and dinner, from 6.30am till late. While those enjoying the libations at Dylan Bar and The Ruby Room can also enjoy drinks outside if it takes their fancy. With a range of alcohol free and low alcohol drinks options such as Seedlip & Tonic or a ginger beer Mojito, and Lillet Blanc with honey and Mediterranean Fever Tree tonic or a peach spritz with Martini Bianco, every palette is catered for at The Nurserie. As the evening chill begins to set in, why not try a Baileys coffee or an Irish whiskey coffee with Teelings Small Batch and warm up watching the sun set.
Guests can also enjoy a delicious BBQ menu for €40pp in The Nurserie. Known for its focus on plants and vegetables, the kitchen plates up delicious salad dishes including charred courgette with runner beans and ricotta, roast corn, chipotle, tomato and basil, and roasted new potato, kale and feta salad with avocado. Alongside these salad dishes, dinners can choose from the garden, land or sea…think roasted whole aubergine, smoked short rib of beef, or grilled mussels.
