We may no longer be in the midst of a heatwave, but the summer is far from over. We refuse to hang up our sun hats and dresses just yet; and what’s more, we’re indulging in the finest of summer flavours while we still can. Lucky for us, the five-star Dylan hotel at Eastmoreland Place, Dublin 4 has debuted its seasonal summertime menu.

Nestled in the heart of Dublin’s most sophisticated quarter, the boutique hotel has a knack for indulgence. Whether you need a break from shopping on Grafton Street or you’re post-walk in Stephen’s Green, sit back and relax in the sensual (bordering on decadent) Dylan bar. Or, step outside to the flower-adorned terrace with your closest friends to celebrate the long summer days and nights. Aptly named Midsummer Dreams, the new menu has been created by an expert team of onsite chefs and mixologists. The cocktails alone feature flavours synonymous with summer; including honeysuckle, elderflower, hibiscus and more. Throw in bespoke, savoury canapés with garden peas, lobster and lavender; and it’s an ideal choice for evening refreshments. Assuming you’re salivating already, check out the Midsummer Dreams at Dylan cocktail and canape menu below:
