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!

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.
The occasion was my daughter's birthday. From the minute we arrived we were made welcome. The sandwiches , cakes ,coffee and tea were gorgeous. Presentation of sandwiches and little cakes that looked like they had been crafted by elves they were so pretty and delicate.,even though everything looked tiny we couldn't finish it all. We are not tea drinkers but our lovely lady server suggested trying the Irish whiskey tea which we did.....amazing!
We had a wonderful time and they catered so kindly to a 4 year old birthday girl. The whole experience was just lovely.
Atmosphere and food were excellent . Eimear was very friendly and help us so much during the whole experience. Thank you

Outstanding from start to finish - the best afternoon tea i have ever experienced- would highly recommend and will definitely be back! Well done to the all at the Shelbourne for outstanding service and of course the food! The surroundings were spectacular
Excellent service, food was fabulous. No problem in trying different teas. A fabulous afternoon enjoyed by my husband and myself
Afternoon Tea in The Lord Mayor's Lounge is a treat for all the senses. An exciting variety of teas to try with an original choice of sweet and savoury delicacies. Staff are attentive yet unobtrusive. Stylish, tasteful decor and gentle piano playing music to stir the emotions.
We were given a voucher by family for afternoon tea
It was s a lovely experience. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The live piano music really added to the atmosphere and experience.
Amazing staff - fab service would 100% return. Sophie
Great food, drinks & service at the Lord Mayor’s Lounge.
Food was all delicious! We were delighted to learn that we could order as many additional sandwiches as we wanted! Our waiter, Tomás, really completed the entire experience! We was so friendly and knowledgeable.
The tea, champagne, food, service, decor, and live piano... everything was perfect! Went with a friend and got the vegan high tea (she got the regular option). We were both in heaven.
A fantastic experience from start to finish, without a doubt the best afternoon tea in Dublin. Fabulous atmosphere in the lounge with the piano background music. The food is exquisite and the service is exceptional as you would expect. Tomas was our waiter, he was friendly, knowledgable and attentive and you can see he enjoys his job. An extra special touch from the hotel when we received a congratulations plate on the birth of our daughter. Worth every penny! Looking forward to returning already
Our server Tomas was excellent. Really attentive and made my mother’s birthday very special.
Gorgeous stylish setting, fantastic ambiance with the gentle piano playing and fire lit. The staff were incredible, so lovely and professional and made us feel very welcomed. Overall, food was delicious, the scones in particular with the clotted cream. We had the afternoon tea and the rhubarb panna cotta and blood orange carrot cake were a bit of an acquired taste.
Overall lovely experience, will definitely be back!
Very American style service - almost overly attentive - leave tea on the table and do not remove plates until everyone else has finished the level
My 10 year old daughter and I had a magical afternoon tea last Thursday in the Lord Mayor's Lounge. The room was beautiful , we loved the piano music and the food was sublime. Every morsel was a work of art to the eye and on the palate. My daughter said it was more amazing than she had imagined it would be. The creativity even stretched to the beverages on offer and I had some of the loveliest and decadently presented herbal teas I have ever had. Our waiter for our visit, Gregory, couldn't have been more helpful, my daughter has a nut allergy and Gregory was able to (frequently) reassure her that all was under control. In fact his kindness had such an impact on her that she has named a major character after him in the story she is currently writing. Our visit to The Shelbourne was the highlight of a very special mother and daughter trip to Dublin, thank you!
The whole experience was so enjoyable. Our hostess Danielle was so polite and helpful, especially when chosing the teas. The avocado&chicken sandwich was divine. The piano player and music added that little something to the whole atmosphere. Will definitely be back.
