Afternoon Tea In Kilkenny 

Butler House is the perfect place to experience the indulgence of afternoon tea in Kilkenny. We are surrounded by the iconic history of the city including views of Kilkenny Castle. We invite you to join us for your afternoon tea experience.

Our Afternoon Tea Offerings

Our tempting homemade menu is filled with some delightful sweet and savoury treats such as:

  • Freshly baked scones
  • Delicate finger sandwiches
  • Fruit tarts, macarons and pastries
  • A tasty selection of bespoke teas and coffees

For those wanting something a bit more special, you can add a glass of prosecco to elevate your afternoon tea experience.

The Perfect Setting

The architecture of Butler House sets the scene for afternoon tea. You can relax in the elegant surroundings of the Lady Eleanor Room with its large bow windows, original plaster ceilings and works from the esteemed Basil Goulding Collection. The tranquil setting with views of the walled garden and Kilkenny Castle, create an atmosphere as delightful as the teas and treats themselves. A truly charming and unique venue that befits the occasion.
