There are few traditions more decadent than afternoon tea and the g Hotel & Spa is noted as one of the best in Ireland. Afternoon Tea at the g Hotel is served in three Signatures Lounges designed by milliner Philip Treacy. Each lounge is uniquely styled from the white light-filled Grand Salon and the dramatic pink Ladies Salon to the deep blue hues of the Gentleman’s Lounge and guests can opt for a different background each time they visit.
Combining freshly baked brown bread and wraps with scones to sigh for and perfectly formed pastries; Head Pastry Chef Martina Crotty presents imaginative rich flavours using the best of local and healthy ingredients. The open sandwiches such as fresh and smoked salmon or confit of red pepper with goat’s cheese are light and extremely satisfying. The exquisitely presented sweet treats include a dark chocolate and passion fruit tart, basil and strawberry macaroon and a cherry delice with kirsch jelly and a strawberry lollipop. Balanced with a refreshing palette cleanser of raspberry bellini verrine and an extensive tea menu the culinary delights will leave you craving to return for more each week.
