We enjoyed the tea time. It was delicious food, great service and a wonderful experience.
Beautiful experience from start to finish, our host Roisin was fabulous. Food was very generous and my tea was never empty
The Irish have saved a tradition in its finest form.
Another birthday treat. The afternoon tea was delicious. The staff were excellent. The ambiance was amazing
A birthday celebration and just being in beautiful Dublin, the occasion called for the Shelbourne and it was magnificent. We tasted many new teas, enjoyed the savories and of course the sweets. The staff was so kind and gracious and the setting is unsurpassed. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
It was good of its kind, I imagine, but it is excessively expensive for what it is. There is an excess of extremely sweet cakes: I would have preferred more sandwiches.
The teas and the coffee were very good.
I think it aims to appeal to women, and to women of riper years at that.
Afternoon tea at the Shelbourne was a fantastic experience. The customer service was second to none. Attention to detail and service was a 7 star experience. The food and choice was excellent . I can't recommend it enough. In fact I haven't stopped talking about our great experience and recommending it since we left.
Most enjoyable but could do with air-conditioning.
Service as always in The Shelbourne was exceptional. Tomas was a brilliant host and very efficient, helpful and friendly. We both agreed we would have rathered a little more savoury selection than there was. However, everything was delicious. Teas and coffees were wonderful also. Overall experience was great and well worth the treat!
We truly enjoyed the experience of afternoon tea at The Lord Mayor's Lounge. The treats and teas were unique and delicious, and the service was exceptional.
Lovely setting - let down by poor service - not what I expect at the Shelbourne.
When asked if we wanted more sandwiches - it took 20 minutes for these to be delivered. We had to ask twice for some more standard sandwiches. One of our party was hit by water due to a collision between two staff members. No apologies from the person responsible. The birthday surprise was late right at the end of the tea - just as we were about to leave.
We had a very nice afternoon at The Lord Mayor’s Lounge for afternoon tea. Everything was delicious, and the service was top notch!
Vacation experience, it was so lovely!
It was practically perfect, gave a 4/5 for value as it was a tad expensive compared to other afternoon tea I've had of a similar standard but couldn't fault any other aspects.
Love the Shelbourne for afternoon tea. No other place beats it.
Great treat for the girls. Enjoyed this special venue and service and have been treated very kindly. Champagne was excellent even though a bit pricey. Also great selection of teas to try and food was plentiful and gorgeous!
Lovely way to spend an afternoon. Excellent service. Try for a table by the windows.
Couldn't recommend this anymore, truly an enjoyable experience, staff were so friendly and helpful. Food was amazing.
This was a gift - to be honest I would never have treated myself to it otherwise. Lovely waiting staff and very friendly. Food was gorgeous and we devoured everything. One very small criticism - would have preferred to have had coffee/ tea pot left with us to allow up top up our own cups rather than waiting. Tiny criticism- other than that we had a lovely afternoon.
It was a delightful afternoon to enjoy tea and the company of a good friend.
Great experience. Very nice way to mark a special occasion.
Amazing food and lovely atmosphere
A special treat for anyone who wants a peek into old world traditions .
Beautiful setting. Afternoon tea sandwiches and desserts were amazing. Personally I would prefer to have my tea at the table with me instead of it being served each time. Staff were quite busy so tea went cold / too strong which was a bit of a disappointment.
Fantastic experience - fact that it was a special occasion was taken note of making it even more special.
We did the afternoon tea service. It was absolutely amazing. It was the first time anyone in my party had ever been to a tea where you could get more sandwiches. It was a lovely experience and I would recommend it highly.
We were very impressed. You are paying for an experience as well as the tea itself. The piano music was just right, not too loud. I was surprised at the amount of choices we had for tea etc and there was no bother ordering additional sandwiches that you liked. The staff were very well presented and our server Patrick was so lovely. He kept us informed but wasn't constantly in our faces.
Overall it was a really lovely experience.
Lovely afternoon. Many thanks for the special birthday goodies.
We went for a birthday celebration and had a lovely time. Would highly recommend it.
The atmosphere was magic food was amazing except for 2 of the chocolate deserts- they were too heavy and had too much going on with them. The scones (with butter, jam and clotted cream) and the panacotta were the best
Superb. Endless refills of sandwiches, cakes, scones, tea etc
Excellent food, nice and friendly servants, beautiful surroundings
Make time and a reservation for afternoon tea. Excellent presentation, taste and selections.
Wonderful afternoon spent in the Shelbourne. Fantastic food and brilliant service. Would highly recommend to anyone and we look forward to going back.
Very excellent with outstanding service. The food was delicious and plentiful. The staff was attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommended!
It was a great experience. The staff were excellent and the food and presentation was outstanding. It was a pleasure to be there and myself and my friend spent a very pleasant afternoon at the shelbourne. my only regret was that I didnt stay the night.
My sister and I took our Mom there for Mother's day and we had an amazing time! What a great experience! Lovely food and such a great atmosphere!!! We loved the man playing piano. And the service was first class! Thanks! Highly recommend!
The Room is Beautiful, Their was a Person playing the Piano, The Table was set perfect, everything you expect and More,
The Food was exceptional,
It was My daughters Birthday she was 18yrs and The piano played Happy Birthday a plate with with a few small wonderful cakes and the words Happy Birthday was written on the plate. How Lovely was that?
The Staff are so attentive, lovely, gracious and could not do enough for us.
Overall myself and My three Daughters would definitely recommend the Lord Mayor's Lounge.
Thank You so Much Shelbourne.
And We will be back.
Went for afternoon tea. There was a piano player, and the server was very helpful and explained how everything worked and what all the foods were. They had a great tea menu, and during our two hour sitting we could have as many teas or sandwiches as we wanted. Worth the expense.
