Festive Afternoon Tea at InterContinental Dublin


Add some Sparkle and Glamour to your Christmas with Festive Afternoon Tea at InterContinental Dublin


This week I had an early taste of the festive season and enjoyed a catch up with friends over at the five-star InterContinental Dublin’s infamous Festive Afternoon Tea. Afternoon Tea is one of the treats that I love most this time of year.

We had a chat with Nick the General Manager who told us about the fabulous Afternoon Tea Season at the hotel.

We enjoyed a sumptuous array of savoury delights and sweet treats created by the Hotel’s pastry chef Orna Larkin, in the cosy and luxurious surroundings the Reading Room.

We began with a selection of delicious finger sandwiches including Cranberry & Turkey on Brioche; Smoked Irish Salmon on Soda Bread and Dill Cream Cheese; Smoked Paprika & Egg Mayonnaise; Roast Ham and Dubliner Cheese on Multigrain bread and after enjoy fluffy Plain & Fruit Scones and a Pain D’Epice, a stunning gingerbread sponge bread served with Clotted Cream and homemade preserves.

Then, we indulged in an assortment of decadent Christmas desserts such as Orange Eggnog PannacottaPear, Pineapple and Vanilla Mousse; and Dark Chocolate, Chilli and Passionfruit Entremet.

Festive Afternoon Tea was accompanied with our choice of loose teas or gourmet coffee or add to the celebrations with a well-deserved glass of Perrier Jouet Grand Brut Champagne or Blason Rosé Champagne.

And the price is surprisingly reasonable and will make an amazing early Christmas present at €65pp and if you want to go full luxury then the Champagne Festive Afternoon Tea starts from €80pp. Served daily from 12.00pm to 4.30pm from 1st to 31st of December 2022 excluding 24th, 25th and 26th December.
