Classic Afternoon Tea


The Piano Lounge is part of the original hotel building dating back to 1820 and with its soaring ceilings, intricate stucco work, antique chandeliers and grand piano, it evokes a sense of the grandeur of times past. This is the room where the Grand Balls would have taken place and where, these days, it offers the perfect space to sit back and relax, ponder on your plans for the day, read the morning paper, meet up with friends in the afternoon or enjoy an aperitif or digestif in the evening.

Mementos illustrating the history of the hotel, such as the monogrammed (personalized) crystal collection, the original Singer sewing machine, letters and notes from past guests from the 1800’s and 1900’s are on display in this warm and welcoming lounge.


Relaxing back in an armchair by the wood burning stove in the lounge, surrounded by original memorabilia, with a cup of Earl Grey tea, offers a real taste of times gone by. Friendly and attentive staff offering excellent, locally sourced produce prepared with care by our Chefs, ensures a most enjoyable dining experience.

Residents and non-residents are invited to enjoy The Lake Hotel Classic Afternoon Tea which is served from 12.00pm to 6pm in the Piano Lounge, Lough Lein Room and Lakeside Bistro. The Lake Hotel Classic Afternoon Tea menu can be viewed here.
