Hotel Meyrick, Galway’s most luxurious 4 star city centre hotel, is renowned for its Afternoon Tea service

During your visit, make sure you take time to enjoy the original features of our historic hotel including the fine marble fireplace, which incorporates a pair of bronze discs, emblazoned with the Midland and Great Western Railway Arms. They are dated 1845 which is when the building of the Railway Hotel commenced. The hotel opened in August 1852 and proudly celebrates over 163 years of warm Irish hospitality. What better way to spend an afternoon catching up with friends, spoiling your Mum, celebrating a recent engagement or baby shower; or sharing some quality time with your other half.

"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea," Henry James

"Delightful Afternoon Tea"

Taking the time to experience an afternoon tea while visiting Ireland was a special addition to our 9 days in Ireland. Stephen, our attentive server, was helpful in suggesting we allow the chef to decide our sandwich choices once we excluded 2 of the many. The tea was hot and the pot refreshed in a timely way. Brown bread with cream cheese and salmon was a yummy start and the scones light and hot. The raspberry tarts were our favorite of the desserts and that was unusual for one of our party who usually dislikes anything raspberry.
