Best afternoon tea I've had! Food excellent, staff friendly, helpful and attentive and lovely atmosphere here. Presentation is lovely and also takes up less space on the table - it's the small things sometimes!

We really enjoyed our stay. Beautiful castle with a fireplace. Ate at the restaurant Fahrenheit that has a guide Michelin star and the food was delicious. 10 minutes by bus or taxi to Dublin city center.
