One of the most unique afternoon-tea experiences offered in Ireland, The Westin Dublin’s Writers Afternoon Tea takes inspiration from the great works shelved within the luxury hotel’s historical walls. With tea menus inspired by literary greats from Ernest Hemingway to William Butler Yeats and Oscar Wilde, the hotel’s afternoon tea will leave you feeling satisfied, inspired, and even closer to some of the literary icons. The real jewel of The Westin is inside the hotel in the Atrium Lounge, where enjoyment and refinement abound, as patrons partake in afternoon tea under a magnificent five-story-high glass ceiling.

Settle into a plush velvet chair, sip some of the finest Jing loose-leaf teas or a signature cocktail designed by the hotel’s Mint Bar mixologists, and let the soft live piano melody serenade you. Each place setting comes with an artful bookmark featuring a quote from one of the greats who inspired the menu. In fact, every item on the menu—from the Irish beef with rocket, horseradish mayo, and red onion jam on Irish granary bread to the peach Bakewell, traditional fruit scones, and raspberry macaron—is inspired by a prolific writer.
