Downton Abbey Comes To Hotel Meyrick!

Downton Abbey Comes To Hotel Meyrick!


Are you ready for a fourth season of Downton Abbey's diaphanous tea dresses and elaborate hairstyles? If like us, you’ve become infatuated with the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and just can’t wait for season four to begin, you’ll be delighted to hear that the 4 Star Victorian style Hotel Meyrick will fill the void with a Downton Abbey themed Afternoon Tea in support of the ISPCC on Saturday 22nd June.

Taking place in association with Galway’s Business & Professional Women’s Club (BPW Galway), guests can enjoy a sophisticated and elegant afternoon in support of the ISPCC in the luxurious surroundings of the 160 year old hotel’s Parlour Lounge, as it is transformed into an English Manor House of true Downton Abbey renown with the finest china, table linens, silverware and antique adornments. Complete with “white glove service” guests can savour a collection of fresh pastries and variety of delicacies inspired by the Emmy Award-winning series for €35 per person, with proceeds being donated to the ISPCC, as Hotel Meyrick staff prepare your upstairs and downstairs favourites!

Come dressed in your finest, favourite or vintage inspired clothing and be greeted by characters emulating the cast, in full costume! Take a seat in a vintage car at the foot of the hotel, be entertained as the hit series’ soundtrack is performed by Hotel Meyrick’s resident pianist.

Downton Abbey has become one of the most widely watched television shows in the world and is compelling for its sharp writing and languid beauty – the charming English town, the costumes and the sweeping manor house in Edwardian era, with styles comparable with the Victorian themes of Hotel Meyrick. Amidst sweeping social change, budding romances and surprising betrayals, Downton Abbey will return with a riveting fourth season starring Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Shirley MacLaine and the rest of stellar cast in the award-winning series from Julian Fellowes.

Enjoy the sophistication of the most successful British costume drama series without the drama of the sinking ships, World War or Spanish influenza at Hotel Meyrick. Originally designed in 1852 to create an iconic structure in the centre of Galway which would majestically stand and welcome visitors, Hotel Meyrick is an ideal location to host this Edwardian Era Afternoon Tea. Steeped in a culture and tradition of quality service and standards Hotel Meyrick has combined some classical traditions of by gone eras with today’s modern facilities to ensure that each guest continues to have the utmost experience in luxurious surroundings.
