The Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin Afternoon Tea Lord Mayor Lounge

About The Lord Mayor's Lounge

Ireland's most iconic drawing room looks out on the only garden grand enough to match: the glorious St. Stephen's Green. The Lord Mayor's Lounge is the perfect back drop for a special day in Dublin. A room sparkling with light it is a welcoming setting for an early morning breakfast meeting. A rich cup of coffee, a deep plush chair, perfectly arranged cut flowers, and a front-row seat to the natural drama of the Green.

In the late morning, The Lord Mayor's Lounge moves to the celebratory theatre of that most civilised ritual: the art of Afternoon Tea. All is sweetness and light, sugar and spice. A symphony of gentle indulgence, this is a time-honoured tradition which has been savoured by generations of guests at The Shelbourne.

Opening Hours

In line with the new government directives The Lord Mayor's Lounge at The Shelbourne will close for non-residents for three weeks from midnight tonight, Friday 18th September. The health and safety of our associates, guests and the wider community is our priority during this challenging time.

Our Menus

The Shelbourne has welcomed guests to Afternoon Tea from the very beginning and it remains one of our most cherished traditions of the hotel.

The elements of Afternoon Tea have remained unchanged over the centuries: a fragrant pot of tea, a succession of sweets and delicate sandwiches, fine china, fresh flowers and delighted laughter. This time is all about enjoying the lovely things in life, an experience designed to be shared and savoured. Time slows down and the art of conversation is revived.
