The Victorian Tea Rooms were originally constructed as an ice cream kiosk for visitors to the park and zoo in the late 1800s.Over time it developed into one of the top ten independent cafés in Ireland. The Tudor revival structure was designed by architect James Higgins Owen. It has an unusual roof made of terracotta shingle with a bronze ball finial on top.
The beautiful café, which is situated beside Dublin Zoo, is the perfect place to go if you want a cup of tea or coffee and a scone. Visitors have also been known to book in advance as they sell out fast!
