Named after the famous fictional traveler Lemuel Gulliver, a pseudonym of the celebrated Irish author Jonathan Swift, Lemuel’s Restaurant at the five-star Conrad Hotel, Dublin, pays homage to the magic and curiosity of Gulliver’s Travels.
In this spirit, dining and drinking at Lemuel’s is always a voyage of discovery. This Valentine’s, Tuesday 14th, take the one you love on a romantic break, if only for the afternoon, with The Lemuel’s Chocolate Afternoon Tea with inspired Romantic Cocktails.
Served with two uniquely crafted cocktails for Valentine’s you will enjoy the Lady Rose, with gin, triple sec, lemon juice, rose syrup, and egg white, and Amor cocktails inspired by love and the effects it has on us.
To add a final flourish to the romantic occasion afternoon tea and cocktails will be served with a poem. Poet Stephen Clare will be in Lemuel’s on Tuesday 14th from 3-6pm for some ‘fresh’ love poems.
Stephen Clare writes completely original, confidential, personalised, on-the-spot poems. He will write on any topic you would like, and each work is typed up carefully on a vintage typewriter as you watch. As each poem is created on the spot on a manual typewriter, you get the only copy and walk away with a poem that is purely yours.
Since opening in 2016 Lemuel’s has become one of the regarded as offering one of the most innovative afternoon tea’s in the city. Choose from Afternoon Tea served with wide range of loose leaf teas or speciality coffees, Story Teller Cocktail Afternoon Tea accompanied by any cocktail from our Lemuel’s journey cocktail menu, or Champagne Afternoon Tea with by a glass of Henriot Brut Champagne, perfect for special occasions, or just because.
