Norm’s Thursday Doors : Afternoon Tea/Gin Anyone?


The Westin Hotel, Dublin

Dublin Door

My door this week is from The Westin Hotel in College Green in Dublin, just across the road from Trinity College, and right in the heart of Dublin.   As you can see, it has a very opulent stone facade with ornate columns, and  the hotel has 4.5 stars.   It changed hands a few years ago, and was bought by a US billionaire (not Mr Trump) for 65 million Euro!    I am sure the inside matches very well with the outside,  (I am yet to visit) and I hear the hotel is famous for it’s afternoon teas – you can even have Hendricks Gin in a teapot – now there’s a good reason to visit.   You can read the afternoon tea menu here, and be sure to pop in if you are ever in Dublin.

    Tea or gin? Yes, please, depending on the time of day…or perhaps how badly the day’s gone. 🙂

    Lovely door, Joan. I’ve seen this one on a trip to Dublin, but only from the outside. The afternoon tea sounds like a good idea.

    Afternoon tea, afternoon gin…either works for me 😉
    That is a wonderful multi raised-panel door – nice find.

    Nice door shot; you’re lucky it wasn’t purchased by DT or you’ll have that awful looking name plastered all over that hotel in 20 ft. tall gold letters.
