Overview

There are few meals more civilized than afternoon tea—and this Dublin tour delivers afternoon tea with an extra dose of quirky elegance. Sip tea, nibble sandwiches, and sample desserts to the sounds of smooth 1950s jazz as your vintage Routemaster bus glides through the streets of Dublin. A unique way to discover the city, it’s also a great Mother’s Day gift.

What to Expect

Board your vintage Routemaster bus near Custom House and sit at your appointed table. Feel the nostalgia as your sociable tour escort gets the conversation started, the 1950s jazz starts up, and a classic afternoon tea is served.

Savor all your afternoon tea favorites—finger sandwiches, desserts, cakes, and pastries—as your bus travels through downtown Dublin. See St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Christ Church, Trinity College, St. Stephen’s Green, Wood Quay, O’Connell Street, Phoenix Park, and the grand buildings that comprise Georgian Dublin.

There’s no formal commentary but your hosts will share some of their favorite Dublin stories before you return to base.

Brilliant!

We had such a lovely time on the bus on Saturday for afternoon tea for my friends 30th birthday. Kirsten, Katy and Shane were brilliant and the food was great (especially the brownies!). The take away cups were a great surprise! Highly recommended :)
