    I got to know about this experience from a friend that saw this bus around Dublin, I took my mum for a short holiday in Dublin and she loves tea so this tour seemed very fitting. Very organised, varied menu, fresh sandwiches and cakes, warm scones, tour guide was very informative and having to go around Dublin as an added bonus, would definitely recommend, something different :)
