There are many establishments in Munster that serve Afternoon Tea, but for me, none as authentic as Dromoland Castle, a beautiful setting, delicious food, even the background music is perfect, and of course the staff at Dromoland are exceptional.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a special five course dinner at the Earl of Thomond Restaurant in the Dromoland Castle. The service was impeccable, the food amazing.....and the dining room is absolutely beautiful. This is a must see/stay place on any trip to Ireland.

We absolutely loved our afternoon tea experience in Dromoland. From the warm welcome to the beautiful food and service we highly recommend this experience. We also took the opportunity to walk around the beautiful grounds. We're already planning a return!

For a gluten free/dairy free guest it was just about everything I asked for. My sister & I had a wonderful few hours. Christmas & New Years is an especially nice time to take Festive Tea because the hotel is so well decorated & inviting. We are already planning a return visit for 3 birthday celebrations in July...

This was hands down the highlight of my Christmas holidays (family time aside!). It was pricey for what it was, but worth every penny. The food was amazing. The service was world class and the atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for. I have recommended this to anyone who would listen to me rave about the mince pies! We were never rushed, our foods and drink was replenished constantly and even though the room was busy, the tables were set up to be quite private. I will make this a treat a little more often!

It was fantastic, I have been visiting this hotel on and off since 1982, it is still as good as my very first visit. The service is the very best I have experienced worldwide. I will be back again.

I brought my Mum, Granny and Godmother for afternoon tea and we had the best time. The food is delicious, the staff are wonderful and the atmosphere was so relaxed. You never feel rushed and you definitely get good value for money. Would highly recommend!

Afternoon Tea was such a treat at Dromoland Castle. Your staff i.e. Ryan and Raquel were extremely polite and professional in their dealing with our party. We would also like to thank Mr. Tuohy (on door) that parked our car and then when we were ready to leave, got it for us. Many thanks to you all.

We stayed in the castle on the 26th December, The food was really a let down. Although the wine was nice and the service was on point, the food was uninspired and bland for a 5-star hotel. Given the cost of the hotel and the addition cost of the lacklustre meal, I felt disappointed.

It was a wonderful experience. The food was superb. The service was discreet and incredibly efficient. The harp music was the most perfect accompaniment.
