Not surprisingly, the Seasons Restaurant at the Intercontinental Hotel in Dublin, Ireland is an experience in elegance.
One night of my two-night stay at the Dublin Intercontinental was a free anniversary stay (via the Chase IHG Visa Card), and the second night was an award stay using 50,000 points.
Although breakfast was not included in my stay, hotel management kindly gave me one breakfast on a complimentary basis. I note that even if breakfast is not included in a stay, guests are welcome to complimentary coffee and tea.
There are two main rooms at the Seasons Restaurant. The breakfast buffet occupies one entire room and the second room is the formal dining room. From the tablecloths, to the carpet to the chandeliers, the restaurant is sophisticated, classic and chic. The windows in the dining room remind me of the old Tavern on the Green in Central Park, New York City.
I was seated at a table and served coffee. I was offered a menu – I could choose to order from the menu or the breakfast buffet.
The breakfast menu was nice, but for me, the buffet was the way to go!
The presentation was exquisite. There was the usual array of traditional Irish breakfast foods as well as an omelette bar and a very impressive selection of breads and pastries.
I have been on a low carb diet for a while and had trouble during my week in Ireland finding healthy foods consistent with my diet. At the Intercontinental, I was very happy to see a full assortment of healthy, fresh foods, such as smoked salmon, fresh fruits and vegetables and green spinach and lettuce for salads. It was all great!
But, you don’t want to hear it from me, you want to see photos. So here they are.
