A lovely afternoon filled with many yummy treats and countless cups of tea! So fun to try them all! A special treat indeed!
Wonderful experience, a great treat. Service excellent, without being intrusive. Highly recommend.
Having tea at the Shelbourne Hotel was a beautiful experience. The staff were very helpful and friendly and professional, nothing was too much trouble. We were made very welcome and the birthday treat was lovely. Would definitely recommend the high tea experience to anyone looking for a special treat. Thank you for a great day. Josephine McCann.
The food and service were great.
We were a little surprised at the price of a glass of rose champagne. Well worth it but warn other travelers to be aware
Fabulous food and atmosphere. We really enjoyed the live piano music.
The staff were fantastic! I had a few dietary requirements that they accommodated with ease and all the food and tea was fantastic. It really is an indulgent treat and was a special way to celebrate my husbands 30th. It’s not something I’d normally do but I did mention it was a special birthday and they played Happy Birthday on the piano and bought out a plate with small patisserie items and a candle, with happy birthday written in melted chocolate. It was a subtle and classy celebration and although he blushed, he really appreciated the gesture. We really enjoyed our time there and if we get to be in Dublin again for a special occasion we would love to go again.
Server was fantastic. Lovely setting, definitely well worth a visit.
Superb ambience, beautiful selection of teas, savouries and pastries and extra served if you wanted plus lovely doggy box of leftovers to take home. Service was a tad slow which means tea got cold and I felt I was constantly asking for top ups. But a lovely treat and bit of luxury overall.
Excellent service,delighted to be able to take home uneaten cakes,attention to detail was fabulous
Very elegant. Loads of food. Wonderful tea choices.
This was a great experience, very nicely done. I would definitely do this again. If you have never had a tea time experience, I highly recommend!!
Brought my mam for her 70th birthday and it was fabulous so friendly,relaxing everything and more that I expected,we will definitely be back thank you
What a magnificent experience! Beautiful setting and tradition, excellent, knowledgeable and attentive staff. The teas were varied and flavorful, the delicacies were perfect and they even cater to dietary needs which was above and beyond.
Exceptionally accommodating, even when Dina get off peak times. Their desire to please every diner went above and beyond their desire to please went above and beyond the usual dining experience the usual dining experience. Beautifully furnished and decorated and very comfortable. Would Definitely recommend to friends.
V nice experience but quite expensive
This is my second time here this year, the first time was mid week in April and I have to say I found that time to be slightly more enjoyable, it was quieter and I found the service to be more efficient.
Having said that, both times were highly enjoyable and would definitely go again
Excellent service. Attention to detail sublime. A must for afternoon tea lovers.
It’s always a special experience and treat - and the room is beautiful !
Lovely tea but terrible food. Pretty, but nothing standout.
My sister and I had the most wonderful afternoon to celebrate her birthday . A bespoke menu was provided per my request without any fuss which was a huge relief and pleasure in itself. We will be back soon .
An absolutely fabulous way to spend a couple of hours in the city. Also, our server, Tomas, was brilliant. His knowledge was spot on with regard to all aspects of the afternoon tea.
We had booked this as a special treat for my mother, myself and 2 of my daughters and it was marvellous. The service was superb, and the food was divine. My youngest daughter had the children's menu and the food provided for that was perfect. It's not cheap, but what's seldom is wonderful and I hope to repeat it.
One of our favourite things to do in Dublin is have tea at the Shelbourne. The food is out of this world, the service is impeccable and the ambiance is simply lovely. For the most relaxing and tasteful afternoon, you have to go here.
Had afternoon tea. Food was really good and the staff was friendly. The only problem is the risk of overeating =)
outstanding afternoon tea with superb service, but it is pricey
The staff were extremely accommodating. We were joined by 3 relatives who had not made a booking but were made very welcome.
The afternoon tea was a wonderful experience and I look forward to our next visit to the Shelbourne
Attended high tea here. Service was excellent as was the explanations of food, coffee and tea. Expensive but fun way to spluge
Lovely afternoon celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. Will definitely be back
Very enjoyable afternoon in a wonderful setting. Pity about the €28 price tag on 1 glass of rose champagne.
It was a fairytale experience for my daughters 10th birthday and she felt like a princess, the service was friendly and accommodating and the food was beautifully presented, varied and most importantly delicious. Thank you.
Had such a wonderful experience on Sunday. The food was amazing and the service was just as good. I loved all the recommendations made to us about the teas during our afternoon tea. Would recommend and love to come again.
The best afternoon tea, excellent experience, great staff they couldnt have been any more helpful, piano player was great, place is beautiful would highly recommend it , will definitely go again.
The afternoon tea was fantastic , an experience I will be repeating at some future date. I would think that the non stop piano playing is not necessary .
A very elegant setting for a delicious afternoon tea.
We celebrated our last day of a two week trip with this tea and it was amazing. Great food, excellent service and beautiful ambiance.
A beautiful room for an elegant, filling, delicious selection of afternoon tea-related delights. I loved that we could change our tea selection, and of course I had a few second helpings. Our waitstaff was unfailingly polite and helpful. Maybe a little less pop music from the piano player, though.
Absolutely stunning- service was lovely- food beautiful - setting gorgeous and topping it all off was a lovely pianist playing our favourite pieces! Cannot wait to come back!
This was the best afternoon tea service! It exceeded my expectations on every level. I would highly recommend coming here to anyone, whether they are visitors to Dublin or residents.
The food and tea selection are quite impressive and absolutely delicious. I love the fact that the staff kindly offered seconds for the savories we loved the most - great customer service!
