Dunboyne Castle Hotel & Spa is delighted to introduce The Royal Tea – a new afternoon tea menu fit for a Queen! Nestled in the heart of the Royal County Meath, once home to the legendary High Kings of Ireland, guests can dine like royalty in the luxurious surrounds of Dunboyne Castle in celebration of the upcoming nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle throughout the month of May. Guests are cordially invited to indulge in a carefully crafted menu filled with some of the Royal Family’s favourite delicacies from Friday the 27th of April until Sunday the 27th of May.


The team of accomplished chefs at Dunboyne Castle have designed the delectable Royal Tea menu to bring regal flavours to the fore using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. Begin your royal sitting by sampling an array of savoury sandwiches such as the classic cucumber with lightly spiced cream cheese and delightful honey baked ham, brie and cranberry. Once you’ve whetted your appetite, bite into a freshly baked scone, served traditionally with strawberry preserves and cream.


For dessert, a selection of sweet treats is served such as Gin & Tonic Panna Cotta – the much-loved tipple is infused into the classic, creamy delicacy, playing homage to Her Majesty’s favourite aperitif. A firm favourite of Prince William, The Royal Biscuit Cake is the perfect treat to satisfy the chocoholic in you.  A light ‘White Chocolate and Raspberry Mousse’ is next up on the lavish menu, followed by ‘Shortbread Crowns’, a buttery, melt-in-your-mouth biscuit.


Complete your Royal Tea by sipping on a glass of bubbly, or enjoy a warming cup of tea from fine china, while relaxing in the elegant 18th century Drawing Room of Dunboyne Castle, surrounded by high ceilings and ornate chandeliers or get comfortable in the light-filled Terrace Lounge with al fresco dining for the first summer days. The Royal Tea at Dunboyne Castle Hotel & Spa is the perfect way to embrace your inner King or Queen for the day, and celebrate the upcoming Royal Wedding of everyone’s favourite Prince and his American beauty in style.


Dunboyne Castle’s Royal Tea can be enjoyed seven days a week from the 27th of April until the 27th of May inclusive and is €40 for two or €54 for two to include a glass of Prosecco each. Reservations can be made through sales@dunboynecatlehotel.com or by calling 01 801 3500.
