Afternoon Tea
About the restaurant
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.

Absolutely amazing, the best afternoon tea we have ever had. The food itself was fantastic, but the staff make the experience just as enjoyable. Every single staff member who we dealt with from the gentlemen at the door to Sara the waitress offered outstanding service. Highly recommend!

My two friends and I had a lovely Saturday brunch at Sophie’s. The food was delicious and the service was great. The restaurant was busy enough to provide a nice atmosphere and we especially enjoyed the beautiful view. We all agreed that we would definitely return and would love to try out the evening menu.
