Vegan Afternoon Tea in Dublin | 3 Dazzling Spots for Vegan High Tea in Dublin City

To be honest, we didn’t think High Tea (also known as Afternoon Tea) was even a thing in Dublin of the 21st century. We thought it was the stuff of Victorian Times, only to be seen in TV programs and movies depicting glamourous ladies and gentlemen with the highest-level of etiquette. Ok, maybe today this type of thing also happens in London, England, most likely in the Buckingham palace, but surely not in trendy Dublin. And if it did indeed exist, there was no possible way it could be vegan.

Well, turns out we were wrong. Not only does High Tea exist in Dublin, but it is a thriving business for which you usually have to book in advance to guarantee a seat. Furthermore, a Vegan High Tea is now a pleasure that you can readily order in some of Dublin’s most prestigious hotels (Providing you’re happy to part with €40 to €85 for tea, cake and sandwiches).

Here are 3 dazzling options for Vegan Afternoon Tea in the heart of Dublin. If booking, make sure to let them know you are looking for the vegan option, as many of them prepare the foods in the morning of the booked date.

1. Vegan Afternoon Tea at The Westbury Hotel, Balfe St, Dublin 2

High Tea is not just about the food and beverages you’re having. It’s also about the experience. The Westbury Hotel paints a beautiful picture of high-level décor with atmospheric music and excellent service on standby to meet your every need.

Top Tip: Ask for a window seat to take advantage of the hotel’s location, right off Grafton St. If noise is an issue for you and your guests, make sure to book for the morning or early noon hours, as from 3PM on, the bubbliness levels go up.
