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.

    As always, Afternoon Tea in the Connaught Room is absolutely perfect! From the first greeting of doormen and gate keeper, the magic of Ashford Castle never disappoints. O our visit was made extra special by our lovely servers Loughlin and Lana. They made us feel like royalty. Thank you to all (chef, housekeepers, staff) who keep the experience so fantastic
