Afternoon Tea at The Gresham Hotel


I’ve been wanting to have afternoon tea for the longest time — the kind of afternoon tea that’s served in a beautiful hotel where you can just relax and indulge in the loveliest surroundings…Well, that finally happened this weekend!

My sister and I decided to treat our mum for Mother’s Day. We got our nails done (for free, as it turned out — thanks to the Jervis Shopping Centre!), went shopping and then stopped by the Gresham Hotel mid-afternoon. L and I stayed there for a night back in January and loved it so I was looking forward to a little return!



sandwiches included tomato and mozzarella, smoked salmon on Guinness bread and turkey and cranberry



treats in the form of mini scones with strawberry jam and chantilly cream, lemon drizzle and madeira cake



desserts such as fruit tartlets, Eton Mess and chocolate mousse (served in the cutest edible mini teacup!)


Not only was all the food absolutely delicious and beautifully presented; the service was impeccable too. Really, the staff were so friendly that we immediately felt welcome. There was a bit of a wait which was understandable considering the time but we were very well looked after. It was such a fantastic experience. I think everyone needs to try afternoon tea at least once in their lifetime and if you’re in Dublin; I can highly recommend the Gresham Hotel.
