Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea in Kilkenny is a ritual best enjoyed at Butler House. It has even been said that Butler House serves one of the Best Afternoon Tea experiences in the country! The perfect way to celebrate a special occasion, or mark a milestone.

Our guests will enjoy the historic setting of Butler House with the splendour of the large bay windows, original plastered ceilings, crisp white linen, castle views and the finest locally sourced food. Our tea room walls are adorned with magnificent pieces of art from the Basil Goulding Collection.

Our Head Chef and his team have created a decadent menu filled with sweet and savoury delights, all handmade in-house, along with a choice of bespoke teas and coffees. Add a glass of Prosecco for an extra special treat. 

Afternoon Tea is available 7-days a week, and served between 1 p.m. & 3 p.m.
