Vintage Tea Tours in Dublin is a full afternoon tea experience.

Choose Traditional, Gluten Free, or Vegan tea options.

A beautifully set table waits, tea platter atop. Begin with the freshly baked scone. Follow with traditional finger sandwiches, end with the sweets. And bottomless tea or coffee.

(6:45) The Tour

The tour takes in the main Dublin historical areas including Merrion Square, St. Stephen's Green, Christchurch Cathedral, and Phoenix park.

The tour isn't a traditional history tour, but tales told by your hosts of their favorite stories of Dublin.

The hosts bring the ‘Irishness' to the tour.
