Afternoon tea at clontarf castle 

Last week I met the girls for afternoon tea in clontarf castle.

The afternoon tea is held in the reception area, now  you don’t feel like you are on top of each other but you it very busy with people checking in and out thich in the winter you would be very cold with that door opening.

Our waitress went though each tea with us and explained there afternoon tea is a little different. It comes in two sections the bakery and than the cake shop. I was a little boring and stuck with coffee.


The bakery came first with a selection of Sandwiches, now these wore not normal sandwiches each one was not just different but on different breads. My favourite was the the sirloin grilled and served on ciabatta with sticky onion jam.


It’s hard to believe after that you have any room left but when you see the cake shop you just about manage to find a second wind.



Again it was all very tasty the scones were perfect but my favourite was the shortbread with cream and strawberries.

Our waitress, was so friendly and checked if we had enough tea and coffee. We also all left with a little doggy bag for later. I have to say this is a perfect for a girls day out or even a romantic treat with your other half.

Afternoon tea is priced at €36.95 Click here for more details.

Afternoon Tea at the Westin 

As far as I am concerned, The Westin is the best place in Dublin to have afternoon tea.

Afternoon tea is served in the Atrium lounge which is such a pretty setting, it’s hard to believe you are in the heart of Dublin City centre. Afternoon tea is priced at €34 per person.


This place is perfect for a special occasion, the staff are so friendly and couldn’t do enough. 

Of course I did get a little dressed up, I decided to go a little summary and wore gingham culottes from Penneys/Primark, I think they are €15 and white tiered sleeve top from Boohoo €10 and my YSL handbag.



Hope everyone had a great bank holiday

Lots of love

Afternoon Tea in The Westin

On Saturday I went for afternoon tea, in The Westin in Dublin, I had really been looking forward to this as I heard it was amazing, and I really wasn’t disapointed.

Afternoon tea is served in The Atrium Lounge which is so pretty and such a relaxing hide away in the centre of Dublin.

There are two afternoon teas to choose from the Normal Afternoon tea priced at €32 or A Most Peculair Afternoon tea prcied at €34,  which comes with a cocktail in a teapot. I decided to go for the normal afternoon tea.

The bottom layer of course was sandwiches we asked for no fish, which was no issue at all and the sandwiches wore lovely roast beef with tomato and Horseradish , Cucumber with dill cream cheese and egg and rocket cress.

I’ve gone to a few hotels in Dublin for Afternoon tea,  the Westin was by far the best, the food was amazing,  the staff wore all so friendly.  What I loved most was no one was sitting on top of each other.

When afternoon tea was over, we went down stairs to the Mint bar to have a cocktail, these are expensive, mine was €12.50 but it was a big cocktail and it was delish.
