Classic Afternoon Tea

As you join us for an Afternoon Tea like not other at Fairmont Carton House hotel in Kildare, you are seated in the rooms that originally would have entertained aristocratic visitors to Fairmont Carton House. 

As you gaze up at the gilded ceiling of the Gold Salon, the exquisite coving of the Drawing Room, or out into the floral abundance of the Rose Garden beyond, these are the same views that have captivated visitors for over 200 years.

Enjoy the aroma of specialty Jing Tea, the finest tea sourced from artisan tea gardens across Asia. Take a sip from your bespoke bone china cup and be transported to days gone by, when tea was a ritual to be truly savoured, a special occasion to be shared with those closest to you. Here, we recapture and reinterpret that sense of ceremony for you, our guest.

Classic Afternoon Tea €55.00 per guest
Champagne Afternoon Tea €73.00 per guest 
(includes 1 glass of Henriot Brut Souverain)

“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea” 
– Henry James
Thursdays through Sundays.

Sittings available 2.00pm - 4.00pm.
