The absolutely best way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon is at Afternoon Tea, as we found out recently sitting in a cosy conservatory of the beautiful Ariel House in Dublin's Lansdowne Road. Becky and I are huge fans of Afternoon Tea (it's our inner Downton Abbey speaking) and always on a lookout for a great place to have it.
Ariel House is a gorgeous guest house, situated in the very heart of Dublin and if you haven't yet heard of it, we recommend you to treat yourself and sample the beautiful Afternoon Tea on offer. There is a selection of gorgeous, homemade bite sized savouries and cakes served on the most beautiful china alongside multiple cups of tea. The service in Ariel House is second to none and we enjoyed every second of that rainy Sunday afternoon! In fact, we are already looking for excuses to go back.
If you have an occasion coming up or need a present for your mum, girlfriend, granny... anyone really, or you are simply looking for things to do in Dublin, we highly recommend you check out the Afternoon Tea in Ariel House. It is amazing value at only €19.50 and at the same time a decadent and unforgettable experience.
Ariel House have been, deservedly so, nominated for the Hotel and Catering Review Award in the Best Value for Money category (which they totally are, we basically ate our body weight in cake!!). We have already voted for them! If you would like to cast your vote you can do so here! It is one of the nicest Afternoon Tea experiences we have ever had and we've had a good few! Everything was perfect, from the exceptionally tasty food, beautiful atmosphere and the cutest china to the immaculate service!
