    Very disappointed with our annual festive afternoon tea today at powerscourt hotel. Unfortunately I’m a coeliac and had requested a gluten free menu on booking, at the telephone confirmation and at arrival at hotel. I was then told to tell the server and the rest of the table were asked if they were normal or also required special menu. Food arrived and I had to request an individual plate of butter, cream etc to avoid cross contamination. One of our table then found a small spider in her sandwiches and the plate was removed and we were told manager would come to talk to us. This did not happen. Paying the bill I was disappointed to see that there had been no reduction for the issue with the spider and when I said all was ok apart from the spider, the server said she was sorry. However, no manager came to our table following the complaint. Very disappointed with our experience today

    Having tried a few afternoon teas in the city, came with a group of friends to try the afternoon tea in a more tranquil setting. The best part is the ambience and the place overlooking Wicklow mountains, stunning setting. The rest of it we have found a little disappointing, starting with the food where sandwiches were a little underwhelming, scones were good and sweet treats were ok not great. Service apart from a lovely waiter Iryna was not great, had to ask for water a few times, nobody has offered more sandwiches at any point to us, teas were not poured for us, teas and coffees were arriving with a delay as well. It definitely was not the attention we were expecting

    After a day at the spa, we really enjoyed the afternoon tea experience. The piano player was playing constant jazz without a break and it was a little loud so we struggled with conversation, but in fairness we were seated right beside him. So we were unsure if other diners had the same issues. We endured it. Staff were excellent. They ran out of vegetarian options when we requested extra sandwiches and said it would just take a bit of time to make up more but they were very accommodating. We got extra sandwiches and then were almost too full to enjoy desert. We will definitely return but request different seating further away from the grand piano.

    Went to the Powers Court for Afternoon Tea to celebrate my mam 50th Birthday Celebrations. There was 4 adults and 3 Children with our party. I had high expectations for our outing, however we were left very disappointed. We were greeted at the reception and shown our way to our seats which was absolutely fine. We got told that they start off with water, asked did we want still or sparkling and then got told they would be back to take our drinks order. Received the water and then asked which tea we would like, all of the party were coffee drinkers but all of the menu was only tea. We were offered coffee however there was no menu to say what types of coffee they had to offer. The coffees all came out very Luke warm and not very nice. The afternoon came out around 15 mins after your coffee, the afternoon tea itself was average at best as the sandwich’s did not feel fresh. I just felt the whole experience did not reflect the price for what we received. The children received hot chocolates at the start of the day and then we ordered apple juice near the end of the afternoon tea. When the Bill arrived we seen we had been charged €14 for two bottles of water, even dow it was made out that the water was apart of the afternoon tea. I have never been to a afternoon tea where I had to pay for water. To make maters worst the bill also had a charge of €10.40 for three apple juices for the children. Again I have never been to an afternoon tea where you only received one drink that was included. I stated on the booking it was for a birthday but yet nothing was mentioned which I expected it to be. Over all it was a disappointment and I wouldn’t return here again for afternoon tea.

    Enjoyable experience, rating 4/5. Impressed with portion sizes and added extras such as lemon curd with scones. However, disappointed that neither of the non-alcoholic wines listed in the drinks menu were available and that there were only 2 non-alcoholic cocktails on the drinks menu.

    We had a really lovely experience - the food was delicious. Among the best afternoon tea food I’ve had. The individual servers were very nice and friendly, however the service overall is below what we would expect from a five star experience - not as attentive as in other places I’ve been, and not as professional. All in all a very good experience - we would return for the food alone, and the lovey views of the mountains.

    The area for afternoon tea is beautiful and we were sat right by the window. Service was very good overall. The tea itself was nice but not amazing. A lot of sweet items- would be better with less sweet and more savoury. No butter given with the scones and took a while to come out. The children's ones I expected more child friendly but was just basically the same as the adults with the scones changed for croissants. Overall though a lovely experience

    Table we got was far too low for the couch we were sitting on. Asked to be moved to table where view and setting was better . Told it was booked but no one actually came to that table for the duration of our stay. Had to ask for more tea 3 times left waiting then 2 came together. Very disappointing all round considering we’ve been before
