Afternoon Tea in our Victorian Dining Room

After warming yourself by the open fire in our entrance hall, ease into a soft velvet sofa and enjoy killarney afternoon tea. Light streams through tall windows and leaded glass in this grand, spacious pillared Garden Room restaurant with gold gilded ceiling, making it one of the most beautiful rooms in Ireland. High Tea has been served in Great Southern Killarney since Victorian times, where you can enjoy Morning Coffee & Homemade Scones or Traditional or Sparkling Afternoon Tea. The effortless service and soothing atmosphere of this room creates a calm oasis in the bustle of Killarney town. The pillared entrance and ivy-clad facade of this classic Victorian landmark hotel still conveys a sense of occasion, a relaxing treat to be enjoyed in the opulent surroundings.

Living History:


One of the most innovative features of the original design of this hotel was a very large Coffee Room, as noted in the 1856 edition of Irish Guide. This was a communal area where guests could meet and chat, flanked on each side by two drawing rooms - one for men, and one for ladies.

Afternoon Tea is served Wednesday to Sunday from 12.30pm - 5pm daily
