Afternoon Tea
The long established tradition of Afternoon Tea has been wonderfully preserved at Ashford Castle since 1868 - you’ll notice the original silver tea set displayed in the Connaught Room, which was presented to Lord and Lady Ardilaun to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary in 1896. With spectacular views from the comfort of the castle’s elegant interior, take your time to savour every delicious moment.

The Afternoon Tea menu offers guests a wide selection of speciality teas or perhaps a glass of Champagne, delicate finger sandwiches, warm freshly baked scones with lashings of cream and home-made jam, not to mention our tasty pastries. It’s the perfect way to spend a leisurely afternoon with friends.

Please note that all visitors will be directed to our car park located across the bridge and a shuttle will be provided. Should there be any delays please call the hotel.

    The area we were seated was not quite as it was a thru way for other guests into the Connaught room. We felt quite isolated and forgotten by the staff at times, due to where we were seated. There was also a draft. When we arrived early for our reservation we were told we were early and if we would like to walk around the grounds. Very disappointed to be asked this esp as it was raining and we clearly weren’t dressed for an afternoon garden stroll. I had to ask if we could actually get into the castle please out of the rain , and perhaps we could sit in the bar for drinks before our table was ready - made feel quite unwelcome and a burden by being 25 mins early. Very different experience to our last visit Other staff were very friendly and courteous.

    Here for my aunts annual birthday visit and staff couldn’t be better from the moment we entered the front gate. Fantastic table service. I’m only giving 4 stars as the sandwich selection and presentation could’ve been better and it certainly was better in years past. This is only a minor gripe but perhaps one they might revisit and take into account. We’ll be back definitely.

    The staff were very helpful and polite but we were waiting a very long time for milk and fresh tea- when we got the milk our tea was cold. The sandwiches were all served on the same white bread which we didn't expect at a place of this standard. The pastries looked very pretty and the choux and lemon cake were delicious. The chocolate pastry was very bitter along with the strawberry one. For the child's afternoon tea it has a 'chocolate milkshake' but this was simply milk with very little cocoa powder added so it didn't even taste like chocolate milk. The children's brownie was dry and my niece also got the same bitter chocolate pastry as the adults so I really wouldn't recommend the children's afternoon tea. Overall it was well below our expectations sadly

    Great atmosphere at this iconic hotel. My parents spent their honeymoon here in 1947 so it was a sentimental journey. Tea was very generous.

    The afternoon tea at Ashford Castle was one of our favorite things we did while in Ireland. We walked the gardens before our tea time and they are beautiful. The staff were amazing and all the food was delicious. I would highly recommend doing this.

    It was ok but adding 10€ more to the bill for service charge is too much.Afternoon tea is already very expensive so adding 10€ more is a lot.Very disappointed

    A moment to remember and cherish!! It was a rainy day. We spent it sitting by the fire and enjoying the lovely Ashford hospitality and high tea service.

    Truly amazing experience in this beautiful castle. The room is spectacular and the high tea food simply delicious—and there is too much to eat. With the tea sandwiches, scones and desserts - and amazing array of teas. They provide beautiful takeaway boxes and a complimentary jar of fresh tea leaves. You must get to the Ashford Castle for the day and have tea. The pricing isn’t outrageous.

    It was an extraordinary experience executed perfectly by the staff: warm, elegant, and unpretentious. They shared with us the wonder of the experience with warm hospitality. While it is pricey, it’s a one-of-a-kind experience that’s available almost nowhere else! I’d love to go back.
