Afternoon Tea Ballydougan Restaurant

Afternoon Tea & Something Sweet

Make sure Mum doesn't spend too much time in the kitchen cooking this Mothering Sunday.  Show your appreciation by taking her out for Sunday lunch to one of the many restaurants all over Northern Ireland offering good food with ambience and atmosphere.

Go to our Eating Out guide for restaurant details.

Sweetest Mum

Tray bakes and 'wee buns' are the vital part of Northern Ireland cultural life!  Mums adore a cup of tea or coffee accompanied by a fifteen, caramel square or rice krispie bun.  Ditty's Bakery in Castledawson is renowned for its jam and apple turnovers and apple sweetened pancakes while the fruit cakes from the Corn Dolly in Newry are a real treat.  So why not surprise your mum and make her an afternoon tea that she will not forget!

On the other hand if you want to make Mother's Day extra special why not go out for afternoon tea. Whether it is the quaint surroundings of the Bay Tree in Holywood, or the luxury of afternoon tea at the Merchant Hotel, Belfast or the Garden Hall at Lough Erne Resort in Fermanagh, it will be an afternoon your mother will not forget!
