Lots of choice for breakfast and you can also ask for extras for an additional cost. Was disappointed as I asked for poached eggs. I chased twice but it took 30 mins to arrive, other people around me were getting their breakfasts but not me! The server was very apologetic but even so 30 mins to poach an egg?

Enjoyed breakfast here while staying at the Westin Dublin. The wait staff were solicitous, even on the days the restaurant was unexpectedly busy. Eggs were cooked to order if you wanted some. Despite the wide variety of foods to suit different palates (fruit, yogurt, granola, smoothies, bacon, eggs, toast, etc.), local Irish products were also showcased. There were mini bottles... More
