Went to Dromoland for afternoon tea one sunday this year and it is an understatement to say i was disappointed! Had been wanting to do it for ages and was really looking forward to it.
I understand that taste is very subjective but the basics were lacking in the poor display of food served to us that day.
To start, the cucumber sandwich ( how original!!) were like they had been waiting on a tray for hours and were simply not fresh. The bread was stale. The smoked salmon sandwiches also stale were very basic and not what you would expect from a 5* hotel, neither were the third kind of sandwiches!The sampler cakes would have been passable if they had been fresh and cold, not like something that has spent the day on the kitchen counter.
The only positive were the scones, tiny but delicious.
At €75 for 3 what we got was far from being up to standard.
The staff was not particularly nice or helpful, but condescending and obnoxious!
Not what you would expect from a 5* hotel!More
