Recommended Dublin Tea Rooms

The Drawing Room at the Merrion Hotel - This five star Dublin Hotel won the 2004 Afternoon Tea Awards in conjunction with Barry's Tea.

One of the most enjoyable dining experiences at the Merrion is Afternoon Tea and it comes as no surprise that this five star hotel has recently received awards for this event. Afternoon Tea takes place in the Drawing Rooms which are quaintly situated overlooking two of the period gardens. These rooms are beautifully decorated in traditional Georgian style with spectacular plasterwork on the ceilings and impressive carved doorcases.

The Afternoon Tea menu runs from 3-6pm. This attractive menu offers a quaint selection of assorted tea breads, miniature French pastries, freshly baked scones and assorted finger sandwiches with Viennese bridge rolls. Customers can choose a pot of tea of their choice from a large selection.
