Cakes tasted like … when you go to a buffet you have a many selections of average cakes. The little sandwich bread were dry. It is quite expensive for an afternoon tea and it was disappointing. Their tea selection is nice and most of the staff was kind as well. I won’t recommend it. Sorry. 😑

The staff was very friendly and helpful, the food was delicious, and we got to drink as much tea as wanted. The tea selection was excellent, and the teas we tried were delicious, with great recommendations by our waiter. The next time I find myself in Ireland, I would definitely have afternoon tea at the Sugar Loaf Lounge again.

I don’t normally complain but the service was very slow and not at all 5 star more like 2 star. It was evident that the staff were poorly trained. It’s a real shame.

Our advice would be to eat before your afternoon tea as you do not get much in the way of savouries. I was surprised to see also that the floor had not been hovered and was quite dirty around our table. I’m a stickler for high standards and felt that we did not get a 5 star experience. The positives were the view, ambience and low noise levels. I would dine again but not for afternoon tea.

The food was still really good, and the petit fours were absolutely divine! I was slightly irked that we weren't informed that while we had booked the champagne afternoon tea there was only one glass included and subsequent ones charged at 15e per glass. Would have been nice to be informed, we would still have had more but I felt it was a little cheeky not to have been forewarned. It's a lovely hotel and we were there for the weekend. It was a lovely start to the stay.

Sandwiches were made well ahead because the bread was moving towards the stale and hard stage. The white bread was left out too long. Fish sandwich was very tasty. Scones were fabulous. Beautifully baked. I only ate the strawberry cheesecake. The chocolate pastry was too bitter for me and didn’t like the coffee one. Over all was a little disappointed 😔
