Afternoon Tea in Dublin: Gallaher & Co

I've been back from Dublin for about three weeks now and although I didn't originally plan on sharing this post, I couldn't resist. I'm here to tell you about the most incredible afternoon tea I've ever had in the heart of an incredible city. 

What: Gallaher & Co Bistro & Coffee

Where: 16A D'Olier Street, Dublin, Dublin 2, Ireland

To give you a little background, it was a quiet Thursday afternoon and our last few hours in Dublin. My partner's mum had chosen afternoon tea as her Mother's Day gift and it was our job to find a nice place that suited our style (by our style I mean they wouldn't judge us for the Guinness we'd been drinking since 12.30pm). I did a little Google search and swiped swiftly past the swanky hotels and boutique cafes and stumbled upon Gallaher & Co. I called and spoke to a lovely gent that booked our reservation and we went on about our day. Truthfully I became quite nervous as we hadn't thought to check out any photos or reviews before heading over - We hoped for the best. 

Nothing could have prepared us for how amazing this place actually was. We walked in to the incredible building that housed the bistro and just couldn't believe our eyes. It was exactly what we wanted. The interior had a certain industrial vibe and the staff we're so welcoming. Our menus were ready laid out and ordering was an absolute breeze. From the afternoon tea choices we went for the steak, oak smoked salmon and smoked bacon and tomato. It was to die for. Like, I mean my mouth still waters when I think about it! I can't even put into words how happy we were with everything from the service and the atmosphere to the food and the price. I wouldn't hesitate to visit again next time we're in the city and even though it we didn't know what to expect at first, it was fantastic. 

Have you ever been here, would you go in the future? Do you have any other afternoon tea recommendations for Dublin?
