Afternoon Tea Bus

What a fabulous experience! The vintage bus was so lovely, it was warm, decorated beautifully & the afternoon tea itself delicious. A good variety of cakes & an array of hot drinks including decaf options & fruit teas. We couldn’t eat it all but there is the option of taking any remaining food home with you & you get to keep the cups too! The girls were knowledgeable & funny & offered family stories too which added to the fun. A good tour around Dublin seeing many landmarks without being too much. We really enjoyed ourselves. It was expensive but for a treat worth it.
