Afternoon Tea for Two

Afternoon Tea for Two

For Mother’s Day this year, my brother bought a gift voucher for afternoon tea for two in Adare Manor, Limerick, for my mother and me. We debated making a reservation for Mother’s Day itself but decided that it would be too busy that day, so we waited a few weeks instead.

Was it worth the wait? Absolutely! When we arrived we were the only people having afternoon tea, and we had a table with plush high backed chairs, seated by the window overlooking the gardens.

I ordered the Vegetarian Afternoon Tea, and my mother ordered the Traditional Afternoon Tea. The scones and desserts were common to both – only the sandwich layer differed. I had vegetable samosa, goats cheese with red onion jam, cucumber and cream cheese, and an egg mayonnaise sandwich – with the crusts cut off of course!

My mother’s sandwiches included a chicken wrap, a croissant with ham and cheese, a salad sandwich and a smoked salmon sandwich.




We couldn’t finish it all! One of those delicious scones was left behind by each of us. 🙂

The food was accompanied by a pot of tea, and the whole meal was finished off with a glass of Prosecco. All in all, a lovely relaxing afternoon out.

Thanks Anthony! Much appreciated!


  1. Glad you enjoyed it, I should have told you that they will pack up the leftovers for you if you ask.

    • They offered alright Julie, but we were so stuffed we said no!
