For ages now I've wanted to go for afternoon tea with Jacek, in fact, we had planned to go for afternoon tea on Valentine's Day 2013, the day our son was due but Jacek had to work and I went into labour so that was the end of that! So for our anniversary this year, which was on the 24th, Jacek promised to take me to the beautiful Castlemartyr Resort for afternoon tea and it finally happened! It was such a lovely experience and I just had to share on the blog, mostly for my own memories but also to show you all just how wonderful this place is and to have you all swooning over the delicious food. I warn you, this is a picture heavy post and you may become quite hungry reading it!
We worked our way through the gorgeous selection of treats on offer, my favourites being the chicken, rocket and wholegrain mustard sandwiches on multi-grain bread, the scones with clotted cream and strawberry and prosecco jam and the banana bread fingers. Jacek thoroughly enjoyed his tea, finishing five cups in the hour and a half that we were seated for and he really loved the lemon and poppy seed fingers.
Castlemartyr Resort's Lady Fitzgerald's Afternoon tea is €29 per person and is most definitely worth every penny. You can read more about it and find booking information on the Castlemartyr Resort website.
