Mum is the Word at The Hardiman: Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, and experiences becoming more popular than gifts, book your mum a special 'Mother's Day' afternoon tea at the iconic Hardiman on Eyre Square. We can guarantee that she'll love it!

Relax for the afternoon with a selection of delectable treats created by The Hardiman's Head Pastry Chef, accompanied by teas and coffees selected by their in-house tea masters and barista. Afternoon Tea is a meal served to a small group on cake stands consisting of sandwiches with a variety of fillings, scones with clotted cream and jam and a selection of miniature desserts accompanied by teas and coffees.

While you catch up and chat over your delicious Afternoon Tea, you and your mom can enjoy listening to the hotel’s resident pianist play in the Parlour Lounge. Traditional Afternoon Tea is €34 per person or you can upgrade your experience by adding a glass of Prosecco for €42 per person. You can even bring the grandchildren for €18 per child. Afternoon Tea is served daily from 1pm to 4.30pm.

Discover the history of Afternoon Tea

The story goes that Anna, 7th Duchess of Bedford, complained of “having that sinking feeling” between lunch and dinner. So, a tray of tea, bread and butter and a selection of small cakes were brought to her in her boudoir. Such was the spectacle of the whole thing that she began inviting friends around and before she knew it “afternoon tea” became the thing to do for upper class and society women. So, if it’s good enough for a Duchess, it’s definitely good enough for mum!
