Brought to you by The River Lee Hotel.
Sitting down to a decadent afternoon tea is our favourite way to spoil ourselves.
And what better time of year to take some time out and catch up with your family and friends than at Christmas?
Now The River Lee Hotel has made the idea even more appealing, with a brand new Festive Afternoon Tea menu piled high with mouthwatering goodies.
A modern festive twist on a traditional afternoon tea, guests settle into a cosy seat in the newly-opened Cocktail Bar, just off the hotel’s swanky lobby.
The sandwich selection includes dainty bites with a delicate dusting of Christmas flavour (think cucumber and herb, turkey and cranberry coronation, honey baked ham and mustard on a brioche bun and smoked salmon on Guinness brown bread).
But there’s more; after you munch your way through homemade scones, clotted cream and jam, a world of gorgeous handmade signature desserts awaits you.
From mini mince pies and iced Christmas cake to chocolate and hazelnut macarons, lemon eclairs and mocha cheesecake, there are more festive treats than you can shake a candy cane at. Gluten and dairy free options are available too – just make your requirements clear when booking.
The Festive Afternoon Tea at The River Lee Hotel is available to book now at €30 per person (call 021 493 7772). You can even add Prosecco for €40 per person or toast a super successful year with Champagne at €48 per person.
After all… fizz the season.
