You may remember last Friday I blogged about my week of cakes and how I would like to set up my own tea shop serving a selection of nice teas and fluffy cakes. I really want to start a campaign to revolutionise Afternoon Tea in Ireland and bring it back on more of the menus of cafes and hotels around Ireland. It is something I am very passionate about and I feel there is a bigger demand for good Afternoon Tea in Ireland. We are lagging behind our English neighbours and with such excellent cafes and hotels in Ireland, I feel we should be leading the way in Afternoon Tea culture.
Much to my surprise this evening, I read in the Irish Times Magazine, Saturday 04th February 2012, a review of some of the most fantastic tea shops in Ireland: Bliss in a teacup. The article mentions a brilliant tearoom called Miss Courtney's Tearooms in Kilarney, Co. Kerry which looks amazing. I simply must plan a trip down some time soon for some tea and cake.
