Princess Grace Afternoon Tea

at Lafayette’s

"The  idea of my life as a fairytale, is itself a fairytale" - Grace Kelly


This summer marks the 60th anniversary of the Royal Visit to Ireland by Prince Rainer and Princess Grace of Monaco who, along with their children, stayed at The Imperial Hotel in Cork on the 24th of June 1961. The princess, of course, had well-known Irish connections. Her grandfather, John Kelly, had been born at Drumirla, near Clew Bay, Co Mayo and Ireland was always close to her heart.


The Royal visit saw the people of Cork flock in their thousands to the South Mall, to catch a glimpse of the beautiful Princess. During her stay, the then manager insisted the royal couple be served Irish stew.


Princess Grace remains a major icon of screen and style, to this day! Elegance and grace define her memory and from the moment you indulge in the afternoon tea, inspired by Grace Kelly’s favourite things, you will be immediately overcome by a sense of understated opulence.
