A long standing tradition here, Waterford Castle Afternoon Tea is a truly unique experience. Enjoyed in the elegant surrounds of our luxury 16th Century Castle located on its very own 310-acre Private Island, the experience begins as you board our complimentary Resort Ferry. 

Located just 10 minutes from Waterford City Centre, Waterford Castle is truly a hidden gem for Afternoon Tea in Ireland.

At Waterford Castle we take pride in serving one of the best Afternoon Tea in Ireland. We believe that Afternoon Tea is the perfect way to take some time out from the busy world around you, and to truly relax and indulge. This year has seen many of us unable to meet our family and friends, and we hope our Afternoon Tea can provide you with some precious time together in a warm and inviting setting to do what the Irish do best - sit and chat over a hot cup of tea! 

Our Afternoon Tea Gift Vouchers are available to purchase online, over the phone and at reception. They make an ideal treat for someone you miss, and a promise of a wonderful reunion when the time comes. As the Winter gets darker, it is so important to have something to look forward to in the near future!

Our Afternoon Tea consists of three courses - warm scones served with clotted cream and preserves, savory items such as sandwiches, and an array of desserts, served with a selection of teas or coffee. Our Cream Tea is a lighter option, consisting of pastries alongside tea or coffee.

All our handmade Afternoon Tea treats are prepared daily with care and precision by our talented team of Pastry Chefs onsite in our Pastry Kitchen. We take pride in sourcing and using the finest local ingredients from around Waterford and Ireland, and our menu changes seasonally to make the best of fresh and in-season produce. 

Any special dietary variations such as specific food allergies, Vegetarian, Gluten free or Vegan Afternoon Tea at Waterford Castle can be prepared, with at least 48 hours advance notice to ensure availability.
