The Victorian Tea Rooms

These world famous Victorian Tea Rooms, situated along picturesque Chesterfield Avenue, have drawn visitors since the late 1800s. Constructed as a refreshment kiosk for visitors to The Park and nearby Dublin Zoo, today the Tea Rooms serve a wide variety of delicious, freshly made dishes.

In addition, the Tea Rooms serve delicious hot food including paninis, organic salads, soups and baked potatoes, which can be enjoyed either al fresco or indoors in this beautiful period building.

This beautiful landmark building, constructed in 1896 for the princely sum of three hundred and forty pounds, has captured the imagination of numerous artists and film makers. An outdoor seating area is provided which is ideal for those lazy summer days.
