Experience the elegance of afternoon tea on this Dublin tour that combines afternoon tea with a Dublin sightseeing ride. Sip tea, nibble sandwiches, and sample desserts to the sounds of smooth 1950s jazz on a vintage Routemaster (double-decker) bus that glides through the streets of Dublin. A unique way to discover the city, it’s also a great Mother’s Day gift.

What to Expect

Board your vintage Routemaster bus near Custom House and sit at your appointed table. Soak up the nostalgia as your sociable tour escort gets the conversation started, the 1950s jazz starts up, and a classic afternoon tea is served.

Savor all your afternoon tea favorites—finger sandwiches, desserts, cakes, and pastries—as your bus travels through downtown Dublin. Pass sights such as St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Christ Church, Trinity College, St. Stephen’s Green, Wood Quay, O’Connell Street, Phoenix Park, and the grand buildings of Georgian Dublin.

There’s no formal commentary, but expect to hear some favorite Dublin stories from your host before you return to where you started.
