Had an amazing stay at the westin with my husband. The service is impeccable, the surroundings are beautiful and the atmosphere is lovely. Nothing we asked was too much hassle for the staff. Would definitely recommend afternoon tea here also, a really lovely experience that has to be done at least once. The atrium area is amazing.

My two friends & I opted for the Afternoon Tea - scones and tea. It was really delicious. The surroundings are beautiful, very comfortable couches and chairs or a table & higher chairs if you prefer. The staff are very attentive and pleasant. A great venue to recommend if you wish to chat without any loud music playing.

Myself and my sister visited the Westin for afternoon tea, we really enjoyed the bright room, the food was lovely and the staff kept our tea pot full at all times. I would highly recommend visiting for a special occasion. Its also not bad value compared to afternoon tea in similer hotels.

Three of us visited the Atrium Lounge for afternoon tea recently and spent a really enjoyable afternoon. I opted for the really peculiar afternoon tea while the other two took the traditional option. I was really pleased with the really lovely panacotta, the lovely breads and nice little touches like popping candy for that little added interest. The traditional tea seemed to go down well also and I did a little trade for one of the smoked salmon sandwiches on here which I thought was lovely. On the not so good side was the fact that when I explained that I was not drinking and would like a non-alcoholic version of the tea on the most peculiar menu, I was told that the gin really makes it and I would be better off with just regular tea. I was disappointed but decided not to argue the point. As I was having just regular tea, I was surprised that there was no choice here and the standard tea was brought and poured. It's nice enough leaf tea but I would have expected a choice as is available elsewhere in a hotel of this standard. All in all, a good experience which we all enjoyed. The valet parking here is really convenient and was a real added bonus for us as we had one person in our group with restricted mobility.

Three of us decided to be ladies who lunch and took half days to try the Most Peculiar Afternoon Tea. It was more than worth it. We had done extensive research on the menu and photos of the tea beforehand and decided that although some of the items (eg confit of pork cheek, stilton and honey aioli) did sound most peculiar, we'd still give it a go.... We'd a table reserved at the top of the stairs in a lovely high-ceiled light-filled room and the staff were very nice and helpful (although a bit thin on the ground). We got our tea pot (with matching tea cups and strainers) full of Victorian Mojito first - absolutely gorgeous - light, refreshing and very moreish. This was shortly followed by 2 3-tier stands (1 for me and the other for my 2 friends to share). The lovely waiter proceeded to explain what each item was and left us to dive in. Every single item was fresh, tasty and beautifully presented but I think what stood out the most for us all was the banana and walnut bread, served with a cinnamon and honey butter - so luscious!! All of the desserts were amazing and everything looked so good laid out on the slate of the cake stand. The popcorn pannacotta with toffee popcorn crumble was even better than that sounds and they all disappeared very quickly!! It took a while for the waitress to reappear so we could get our remaining mojito (she gave us 2 portions first so that it wouldn’t go warm while we ate), and there were a few people that seemed to be waiting for bills, drinks, etc but, to be fair, we were there for a nice relaxed afternoon tea and that’s what we got. All in all, would totally recommend it for a nice treat, but don’t expect to get in and out in a hurry.

Myself and 2 friends had the Peculiar Afternoon Tea to celebrate my birthday. Given that it was Christmas we were expecting lots of festive cheer. What we got was something different. The atrium was lacking in atmosphere and given the season that was in it, I was disappointed that there was no Christmas music playing. A pianist would have been a welcome addition to lift our spirits. We ordered the peculiar afternoon tea which is served with Hendricks Gin in a teapot. The savoury snacks were delicious but there was too few of them. There was double the number of sweet treats which were not to my taste but overall the food was tasty and no complaints there. I cannot say the same for the service. We actually had to ask for our teapot with the Hendricks, which one would have assumed would come with the food. The Hendricks turned out to be served as a mojito and was way to sweet. Given that there was 4 members of staff around, once we got our afternoon tea we were largely left on our own. We had to ask for a teaspoon for our desserts and water and each time nothing short of waving our hands in the air to get some service. We also saw at least 3 other tables having to get up to ask for something. We ordered some liqueur coffees to wait anotherb20 minutes for their arrival. We were told 2 different reasons for the delay, one was they had to get the Tia Maria from the store and the other was they had to get cream. Neither task should take more than 10 minutes if you had to go to the shop across the road. We experienced the same lengthy delays to pay our bill. What could be a relaxing experience turned out to be an ordeal trying to get some service. One of my friends had been there previously and had the same service issues so my experience doesn't seem to be a once off occurrence so be warned

Booked here for afternoon tea for a surprise for a friends birthday. I had a table booked for 2.30 and we arrived at 2.45. (I was unable to call ahead to say we would be late as my friend didn't know about it and i didn't want to ruin it) Upon our arrival we were told that we were late and that the table has been booked for "something like 2 oclock" and for a couple of minutes we thought that we would be turned away despite the fact that the place was far from full. We were eventually shown to our table which was set out beautifully and we ordered the afternoon tea each. As I'm vegetarian I asked if I could substitute the 2 meat sandwiches for an extra egg or cucumber but was told "well there is still 2 vegetarian ones so you can just have them and leave the other 2" My friend who is pregnant was going to ask the same thing about the smoked salmon but decided to leave it after that. When our food arrived it was delicious, the scones where warm and crumbly and the selection of cakes was very tasty. When I made the booking I had told them it was for my friends birthday and asked could they provide something for it, but since we didn't see sight nor sound of our waitress from when we were served to when we had to go up to the bar and ask for our bill there and then, needless to say I was less than impressed. The food was very good but the service really put a dampener on what should of been an indulgent treat.

This has to be one of the nicest places in Dublin to chill out for a while! It's so quiet and comfy - lovely sofas and chairs. The service is top class. Not cheap for a cup of tea though! (My herbal cuppa was €4.50 I think). They serve biscuits with all tea and coffee which is a lovely touch. Given how much I was paying for the tea I would've expected a nice quality tea, but it was just a regular teabag. It is pricier than your average cafe, but in my opinion it's definitely worth it for the gorgeous atmosphere and the great service. A nice bit of luxury at a relatively affordable price!

This is a great little find in the middle of the city centre. The Atrium is lovely and bright and spacious and very unusual in that you sit in the bar and the internal hotel windows are above you, very quirky and interesting space. I have had coffee and dessert here and their apple crumble is mouth watering. A great little spot for a quiet chet with a friend.

Had a lovely Christmas Lunch meal here that was very reasonably priced with my boyfriend. We wanted to go on Christmas Eve but didn't like the idea of a Buffet and prefered the table service. It is was our second visit to the restaurant and the staff are great and very friendly. We both had the lamb shank for a main which I highly recommend. I had the smoked salmon starter which was lovely too. Will def be returning again.

I've eaten here a few times, but most recently was the best. Its not the cheapest place in town, but the quality of the food, the location, and the service make it worth it! The deserts are really worth it, so if your just passing and want a coffee and a pudding, oh its a really good place to go! its one of my coffee stops in the city centre as its more comfy and private than a coffee shop and its more of a treat than an essential coffee break! If your eating out now, I think that the surrounding and the privacy are an important component in choosing a place! This place ticks all the boxes!!

The atrium lounge is first of all a beautiful setting to have lunch in you can see the sky from the glass ceiling which allows in lovely natural light, the tables and chairs are are lovely and comfortable the setting itself makes lunch an enjoyable experience, I had a serrano ham and goats cheese salad with figs and toasted tomatoe bread there was just enough of all the ingredients which really brought the salad together, My friend had the cesar salad and had some personal request which the staff we more the willing to sort out, To finish I had a beautiful peppermint tea which comes with shortbread biscuits, The bill was 40 and for the level of enjoyment and comfort and good food it was really worth it

A favourite of mine for a long time now. The atrium is great for a pre theatre snack, a post shopping afternoon tea or a fab pre club cocktail. Well groomed staff provide pleasant and smiling service. The choice of hot and cold snacks provided is very good. In particular I love the fact that I can design my own sandwich to my taste. The desert menu is also very nice. The tables are always draped in lovely white linen and one can relax in comfortable couches. The Westin is a prime location and is proximal to both the Henry Street and Grafton Street shopping areas of Dublin's city centre. The toilets are always beautifully clean.I would recommend everyone to visit here in order to soak up its lovely atmosphere and to sample its tasty fare.

I visited here with two friends today, having been here on a few occasions before. As other reviewers have mentioned the atmosphere is so relaxing and comfortable. It is not really the place for a ‘session’, not only because it is not cheap for drink but because it is more suitable for a quiet relaxing drink or snack. The service is very good and we had 2 small scones each, butter, jam and cream and coffees. All was presented beautifully. The cost was €30. This is not unreasonable considering the surroundings and the quality. Recommended.

This place is one of the few places you can really relax and unwind in the city centre. While yes, it is a tad more expensive than other places for coffees, etc., the atmosphere, tranquility and level of service is second to none. I highly recommend the warm sones, which come with clotted cream and jam, and a pot of tea. They are simply gorgeous. I have taken to com ing in here every now and again, turning off my phone, and simply reading for a little while. While my usual dining in cludes the scones, any scandwiches I have had have been divine. Highly recommended for somewhere quiet in a bustling city.
