The Tea Room

Due to COVID-19 restrictions our Tea Room is currently closed and our Afternoon Tea Experience is not available to book until further notice.

The Tea Room at Pearse Lyons Distillery is a wonderfully tranquil place to relax before or after your distillery tour. Situated in front of our working distillery in the former St. James’s Church, The Tea Room is housed on the ground floor of three beautifully reinstated town houses from the turn of the 20th Century.

The Lyons family have carefully restored and transformed these three ‘Dutch Billy’ style houses and furnished them in a blend of contemporary and traditional design.

The theme of The Tea Room takes a step back in time and focuses on the almost forgotten industries of Dublin’s Liberties. The walls are decked in images of Jacob’s Biscuit Factory, Winstanley’s Boot Factory and the Brewing and Distilling industry dating from the early 1800s.

Images of the famous Hanlon’s bar and Paddy Hanlon, now called McCann’s, take pride of place on the old chimney breast.
The Tea Room serves a selection of teas and coffees, freshly baked cakes and scones, each served with our very own Pearse Irish Whiskey jam, butter and fresh cream.

We are delighted to team up with Lisa Turner owner of Pompous Pantry who created the outstanding menu and the exclusive Pearse Irish Whiskey cherry jam.

We also serve lunch for group bookings and you can enjoy a sumptuous Afternoon Tea Experience before your tour.
