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!

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.
