Valentine’s Fay tea was a great experience. The servers were very knowledgeable and seemed cheerful. Would recommend.
We had a perfect High Tea experience during our stay in this hotel 👌 Everything was beyond great!
The atmosphere was very relaxing and welcoming. The staff were brilliant and the food was excellent. Great to do for a small celebration or special occasion. I would highly recommend the champagne afternoon tea!
It was such a beautiful experience, I will never forget the stay for Afternoon Tea at The Shelbourne's Lord Mayor's Lounge!
Such a fabulous treat!! Would definitely be back 🥰
We had a lovely evening. Food was very nice.
We had a Birthday Celebration and they lit a candle for the birthday girl that was a lovely touch.
The hotel was extremely busy and the noise filtered in. I think the afternoon tea would benefit in being in a secluded room with less noise.
Overall it was a wonderful experience and the staff coudlnt have been nicer.
Amazing from start to finish, cannot speak highly enough of the experience
Nice birthday experience. Servers were really nice.
Firstly I leave at €55 each it was too expensive. It would have been an extra €15 each for fizz Egg sandwich was tasteless no seasoning or onion. Deconstructed cheesecake had a very soft biscuit base.
I felt our plates were being cleared a little too quickly. Piano playing was a little too loud too.
The champagne afternoon tea experience is second to none. The quality of food, tea, coffee and service was outstanding.
I went with my elderly mum and she felt so special from the way they look after her. We sat in comfy arm chairs and had a large roomy table to ourselves. The tea was literally on tap and they were more than willing to change sandwiches my mum didn't like.
We weren't hurried along at all which made for a wonderful relaxed experience. I would highly recommend.
Overall it was very pleasant visit with a single complaint of feeling a bit cold since we were sitting close to the hotel entrance.
Our visit to the Lord Mayors lounge was a wonderful experience. We had been there many times before and always enjoyed a very special experience. Wonderful service delicious food and a very special venue,we shall return.
Very attentive service in a warm and friendly environment.
Exceptional service by highly professional and experienced staff. The quality of the food was amazing. we had a wonderful day.
Beautiful food gorgeous ambience and served with impeccable manners by Jamie. Right on par with the best of the best
And so much food we had to ask for a box to take left overs
Great decor, food was faultless and wait staff were efficient and very friendly. My mother loved it which was the point, so it was a winner!
Fabulous experience would highly recommend staff very helpful and attentive the bonus of the piano player was wonderful will definitely return.
The Afternoon Tea is a bit expensive, but it's worth every cent. The Mayor Lounge is classy and the piano music absolutely lovely, the staff's service is outstanding, and the food delicious (you won't leave hungry, that's for sure). Every time I bring there friends or relatives who visit me here in Dublin, the Afternoon Tea at the Shelbourne is the perfect place to finish a holiday. Highly recommended, you won't regret it and sipping great tea or a cup of coffee watching the park outside the windows will let you feel as if you're an elegant lady or gentleman straight from 1800.
Had a lovely afternoon tea experience with my mum . Or server vanina was very friendly and accommodating and took lovely photos for us. Will definitely return!
In general - beautiful place. Food was so so. Too flate tast, desserts did not look impressive for the price we paid. Service just horrible. Our teapots were placed on the windowsill, near neighbour table. Most of the time I was seating with empty cup and were waiting for a waiter to add new tea. (What was the issue to place teapots on our table? It was enough room for this. People at the neighbour table had 2 coffee pots at their table.) Extra sandviches were offered only once. Scones were also avarage, perhaps they were baked yesterday.
I had an afternoon tea experice in several places in London. One of them - Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London. In Mandarine, they undestand how to treat customers (I did not have an issue to seat with an empty cup for 20 minutes, waitors always kindly offer us new sandviches, deserts, scones).
€ 62 per person for avarage food, poor service - a way too much. The manager of Lord Mayor's Lounge should better visit afternoon tea at Mandarin Oriental in London to see how looks like a good service.
(Afternoon tea was 31 of December at 16:30)
Extremely luxurious and well worth the money spent the atmosphere and ambiance was delightful
Christmas afternoon tea at the Shelbourne is both elegant and relaxing....also surprisingly filling! The festive teas are comforting and the Irish whiskey tea is a fav to finish, throughly enjoy our traditional family visit
High tea at a very special place. It was more than enough but perfectly served. Nice waiter, it was really wonderful to experience this !
I went to the festive afternoon tea with my family and it was lovely.
great food and atmosphere and there was a live pianist
service was fantastic and there were many teas on offer to try
I brought my grandmother and godmother for afternooon tea as a special treat, and it did not disappoint. We all had an amazing time. The staff were so lovely and the food was amazing. Thank you to everyone at the Shelbourne for creating a special memory for me and my grandmother and godmother.
Excellent customer service from entering, very helpful with my husband who is 85 years old and has dementia, staff made our afternoon a very special experience. Selection of food was excellent and what we could not finish was boxed for us to take home. Setting was amazing so relaxing with an an excellent pianist entertaining us. Beautiful experience to start festive season. Would highly recommend
Fantastic! What a treat. Gorgeous food, lovely selection of teas, and great service.
As a coeliac, afternoon tea at the Shelbourne is such a treat! The whole thing can be made gluten free and its almost the exact same as the normal version.
Afternoon tea is elegant and despite the food looking petite it is surprisingly filling! Don’t ask for seconds on the savoury! You won’t be able to eat any of the petite deserts!
Shelbourne a national treasure, wonderful evening excellent quality afternoon tea
Perfect Christmas experience! A lovely retreat from the craziness of Christmas shopping
A lovely way to spend an afternoon. Lovely food, staff and atmosphere.
Excellent service, brilliant staff
A magical experience, we would highly recommend it. Going to make it an annual Christmas event.
All ways great place to go too afternoon Tea was superb ,I can highly recommend Aftenoon Tea ,go and treat yourself
I had been looking forward to this experience for some time but unfortunately it did not meet my expectations and I was left disappointed.
There was an additional cost as it was the Festive season, but the food did not have any Festive flavors, with the exception of a Turkey and stuffing paste roll which I did not like.
The smoked salmon was tasteless and stringy.
We had previously advised the hotel that we would not eat Egg sandwiches and were not offered any alternatives , but rather more of the same of what was on offer.
Everything was served together including the scones which were cold by the time we got around to eating them. In my experience scones would normally come from the oven to the table.
A very good selection of teas were on offer.
Too many heavy chocolate deserts.
I have had many afternoon tea experiences and I am sad to say that the Shelbourne would not be on my favorite list.
Afternoon tea was a present and Worth every penny. Definitely recommend to anyone as a special treat
A lovely afternoon with lovely food and marvellous staff
Great venue. Super buzz and ambience. Issues with the online booking system meant our table wasn’t on the list despite the hotel calling to confirm with me the previous day and c10 automatically generates email confirmations! Very odd and not a good start. Thankfully they found a table and my friends hadn’t arrived for this part so it didn’t spoil the experience.
Service was patchy. Our server told us she was so hungry that she went for her break (halfway through our sitting) and the other servers seemed begrudging to cover our table, it was a challenge calling them over. Food was good, though if you don’t like chocolate desserts (I don’t) you’re in trouble - mostly dark chocolate cakes. Visually, they look great though. Sandwiches and scones were excellent and there is a great selection of teas and you can have as many as you like. Champagne lovely.
So, overall a mixed bag. I wouldn’t rush back as have had a lot better elsewhere, but would recommend it for the setting and experience.
Absolutely amazing experience at the Shelbourne. The service and food was of the highest quality. The building and interior decor is beautiful and staff are so knowledgable and friendly. The afternoon teas was delicious and my coeliac was catered for with gluten free afternoon tea that was as good as any afternoon tea I have had. It has a lovely atmosphere and was beautifully decorated for Christmas. A very special day and treat.
