When meeting up with colleagues, catching up with old friends visiting from out of town or meeting visiting family members, sometimes the occasion calls for a memorable and indulgent meal or fine dining experience in scenic settings that offers a welcome break from the norm. And trying an Afternoon Tea experience with one on one service, in a restaurant set in a stunning secluded location away from the hustle and bustle of a busy city could be just the thing to bring an otherwise good lunch to another level.

Once only the preserve of royalty and 19th century high end society, today afternoon tea is a modern take on a classic luxury decadent lunchtime or afternoon treat. Noted for its three tiered delights, afternoon tea brings fine dining to whole new level of indulgence with a light midday meal that brings to mind the decadence and luxury of royalty to today’s more down to earth audience. As much as you’d expect from a luxury 5 star hotel in Cork, our afternoon tea containing three tiers comprising of gourmet sandwiches, scones and handmade fruit jam and clotted cream, delicate pastries and decadent mini desserts that melt in the mouth all served alongside your choice of tea and coffee, brings lunchtime treats to a whole new level of luxury straight from another time. Set in the scenic surrounds of the Amber Lounge, a day spent partaking in Afternoon Tea is a perfect solution for those wanting a memorable lunch or a dining experience with a difference.

If you want to celebrate a special occasion, meetup with long lost friends for a lunch with a difference, relax after a round at our championship Cork golf club or treat someone you love (great idea for a mothers day gift) to a decadent daytime treat then you can’t go wrong with booking an afternoon tea in the scenic surrounds of our luxury Cork hotel at Fota Island Resort.

A spot of Afternoon tea in our luxury hotel and scenic surrounds can be a great opportune to treat yourself and a friend to an evening of fine dining experience from another era. It can also be the perfect Mother’s Day gift and treat for your mum and a chance for the both of you to dine out in style.
