Live for tea? This luxurious Afternoon Tea Retreat in Galway is everything we need

Brought to you by the Hotel Meyrick.

We’re a nation of tea lovers, this much we know for sure.

We’re among the biggest tea drinkers in the world, consuming a whopping 1,184 cups of tea per person each year. Sounds rather large but yet, entirely legit.

If you’re feeling like upping your tea standards however, not only with the perfect cup of tea but also with the most idyllic overnight getaway and all-round pampered experience, we need look no further than Galway’s Hotel Meyrick.

Situated on Eyre Square right in the heart of Galway city and within very close proximity to the many restaurants, pubs and entertainment the city has to offer, the Hotel Meyrick’s location is unrivalled. Few spots can beat it for both a luxury and exciting city break, and of course, the Hotel Meyrick’s Afternoon Tea Retreat is superb. It’s unlike any other afternoon tea experience and its sure to be adored by you, you and the girls, or you and your other half.

Afternoon Tea is hosted daily in the Hotel’s beautiful Parlour lounge , which has welcomed guests for over 166 years, and here you’ll be able to lounge and chat to you heart’s content. You can choose to have afternoon tea the day you arrive, or the day after if you’d prefer. Either way, you’ll be nibbling on an array of delectable mini sandwiches, cakes, and scones – all of which are freshly prepared on the day.

The Afternoon Tea Retreat includes a full Irish Breakfast too (wouldn’t want you to miss out on a good ol’ Irish fry either) plus access to the Square Spa where you can sip on your favourite cocktail and relax in the rooftop hot tub and jacuzzi. The only thing you’ll really need to think about it when you’re going to go – the rest is all taken care of.
