Limerick Strand Afternoon Tea – As local as it gets

Limerick Strand is unconditionally supportive of all things local. Celebrated award-winning Chef, Tom Flavin is somewhat of local hero, always on the lookout for new local suppliers, and giving a helping hand to small artisan producers.

They support local producers where they can within all menus with a special emphasis on Limericks’ rich history and its neighbouring counties.


This autumn they have gone that extra mile to create a bespoke Limerick Afternoon Tea partnering with the iconic Cahill’s Tea, Limerick’s oldest shop, housed in the old tobacco factory on Wickham Street in Limerick City.

With their expert knowledge, they have created a special blend for Limerick Strand, celebrating their smokey heritage, called the Limerick Strands’ Smokey Breakfast Tea. It is a delightful blend of Rich Breakfast Tea, Lapsong Souchang Tea & Orange Oolang Tea. 

Keeping Limerick central to this bespoke Limerick Strand Afternoon Tea experience, Tom has produced his own traditional Limerick toffee, inspired limericks’ infamous and much loved ‘Cleeve’s Toffee’ a condensed milk product. Also, Tom has called upon his local food suppliers creating a delicious menu with producers including: 

Apple Juice – Attylfin Estate, Paul Mordont, Patrickswell

Oak Smoked Cheddar Cheese – Old Irish Creamery, James Doherty, Effin

Goats Cheese – Leahy’s Farm, Seamus Leahy, Newcastle West

Salad & Vegetables – Newleaf Urban Farmer, Kevin Wallace, Ballyneety

Smoked Salmon – Burren Smokehouse, Birgitta Curtin, Co. Clare
