Afternoon Tea
The elegance of afternoon tea in an authentic 15th century Irish castle really has to be experienced to be believed. Afternoon Tea was a favourite occasion of every former owner of the castle and it’s easy to see why with its perfectly cut sandwiches, piping-hot tea and the most delectable hand-made deserts. Now, you’re invited to pay tribute to this special centuries-old tradition with the best Afternoon Tea in Dublin, presented to perfection by a team of well-dressed waiters, in the magical surroundings of Luttrellstown Castle Resort.

Please note that Afternoon Tea is served on selected dates throughout the year. We love celebrating special occasions like Christmas, Valentine’s and Mother’s Day, however, this depends on the availability of the castle at the time.

Please subscribe to our newsletter so that you can be the first to know when new dates for Afternoon Tea are released.

    It was a joy to visit Luttrellstown Castle fir afternoon tea. The dining area was sumptuous, surrounded by magnificent Dutch oil paintings, and a view to die for. Food was beautiful, and I was very well catered for as I was wheat intolerant. The staff were very pleasant, and we were supplied with copious amounts of tea and coffee. if we wished. We had a tour of the castle as well, and admired the secret door in the library, and the rooms of the Guinness owner.

    Firstly, the eircode is for the clubhouse, go on Maps and look specifically for the Castle Resort. Then not a bad experience overall, although we thought the food to be below what you could find at other afternoon tea experiences. You'll want seconds for the scones, but maybe not for the chocolate loaves for example. Gluten free bread for sandwiches was mediocre, but pastries were good and GF scones were amazing. Definitely stay for a tour of the castle afterwards as it was quite interesting to learn about the history and see some of the rooms.

    We booked for the Christmas afternoon tea, but had to reduce our party size in advance which hadn't been communicated to the staff when we arrived. Our request for a vegetarian afternoon tea hadn't been recorded either. We were disappointed by the unimaginative savoury options, there was also no accompanying menu stating what these were and the server didn't have a clue either (not her fault). Our tea felt like an afterthought, and considering it was the same price as the standard afternoon tea, some imagination would have been appreciated, it was very bland. There was some type of chutney spread on brown bread (from a jar), sundried tomato spread and what might have been hummus. The deserts were fine, nothing memorable. The venue is beautiful, however considering the rich history of the castle, particularly in the 20th century, the staff didn't seem to know much about this at all and a few tired anecdotes about ghosts were repeated on the tour. There was a whole spread on Luttrellstown in Country Life magazine in the 1980s. Overall it was a nice experience and lovely atmosphere in the main reception room where the tea was served, but the quality of the food didn't justify the cost.

    I made a booking for Saturday 29th April for three people for afternoon tea. I received a confirmation email the day before. Upon arrival, we found out that the castle was closed. We had travelled a distance and we were disappointed to find this out. No cancellation email, nothing!!! I do not understand why we could make a booking for that date and receive a confirmation email and then to arrive and it to be closed.

    Would like more sandwiches and scones less sweet stuff. Plates were cleared away without asking if we’d like more. Had to ask for tea top up etc. not much presence of staff checking in. Sweet stuff only enjoyed one out of four. Perhaps personal preference. One small scone per person not great. And one raisin one plain so we had to share to try both. For the price I would expect more. This is the second afternoon tea we attended this year. First was 10/10 but don’t think I will return after this experience. On a positive, all staff we courteous and friendly and surroundings are beautiful.

    Had nice afternoon tea with friends. Thought there could have been some more and some nicer sandwiches. Recently had afternoon tea in Shelbourne Hotel and it was unlimited sandwiches and the selection was very nice indeed. It would have been nice to have a better selection. Other than that it was a nice experience.

    Was so looking forward to Afternoon Tea at Luttrellstown Castle but unfortunately we were somewhat disappointed. We were booked for 4pm, at 5pm my husband had to go find somebody to come take our order for choice of tea. Once tea arrived nobody came near us to see how it was or would we like some more. At 5.30 we were asked if we would like our remaining cakes on our stand boxed up. While the setting was absolutely beautiful I have to say we were somewhat disappointed with the service and felt the whole experience very rushed. On a positive note we were given treats with happy anniversary which was really nice!

We had our wedding here in October 2021 and we are making it a tradition to go to all of the afternoon teas we can to re-live our favourite day all over again. Thanks again everyone see you all in March
