Afternoon Tea

Vintage Tea in Limerick’s Georgian Quarter

Afternoon tea at No.1 is a truly special experience. Our classic La Maison Pery Afternoon Tea includes a selection of sweet & savoury Items with Cahill’s Tea, herbal selection or house blend coffee.

We have plenty of options to choose; from our Champagne Tea, because who doesn’t love a glass of champagne to our Little Prince & Princess Teas for all the little ones. For the gents we also offer a Gentlemen’s Tea which includes a craft beer or cider of choice. We really think that there is something for all tastes here.

The Drawing Room and Park Room are at the heart of the house with grand old original marble surrounds and burning turf fires accompanied by musical classics. Afternoon tea can also be served in Sash Restaurant on reservation.

Afternoon Tea is served from 3pm to 6pm and is a real treat at No.1.

 

A LITTLE HISTORY OF AFTERNOON TEA

From a light snack to fashionable society entertaining

Tea consumption increased dramatically during the early nineteenth century and it is around this time that Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford is said to have complained of having that “sinking feeling” during the late afternoon.

The solution for the Duchess was a pot of tea and a light snack, taken privately in her boudoir during the afternoon.

Before long all of fashionable society was sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon.
