Experience Afternoon Tea the Irish Way
Enjoy our renowned afternoon tea delicacies, good conversation and tap along to some fabulous 1950s jazz. This is afternoon tea with a difference. This is afternoon tea the Irish way.
Afternoon tea is a much-cherished tea-related ritual from the early 1840s. It was a mini-meal to fill the gap between lunch and dinner and was composed of scones with clotted cream and jam, delicately cut sandwiches, sweets and delicious cakes. Book with us and choose from a traditional, gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan afternoon tea! Do you have questions about allergens? Please check our FAQ page.
Board your vintage Routemaster bus in historic Temple Bar. Soak up the nostalgia as your host gets the conversation started, the 1950s jazz starts up, and a classic afternoon tea is served.
Savour all your afternoon tea favourites—finger sandwiches, desserts, cakes, and pastries—as your bus travels through downtown Dublin. Pass sights such as St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Christ Church, Trinity College, St. Stephen’s Green, Wood Quay, O’Connell Street, Phoenix Park, and the grand buildings of Georgian Dublin.
There’s no formal commentary, but expect to hear some favourite Dublin stories from your host before you return to where you started.
Please note that the bus is on a strict timetable and can not wait for latecomers. As such, please make arrangements to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled departure.
