Miss Margaret Courtney, my great-aunt originally opened her business here in 1909 and it has been run by four generations of ladies in my family. I reopened in summer 2008 as Miss Courtney's Tearooms.

We are an independent tearooms specializing in afternoon tea fare, light lunches and breakfasts. We endeavour to capture the feeling of nostalgia associated with 'taking tea'. Expect old fashioned tablecloths, antique chinaware and glistening chandeliers........ ....take some time to 'take some tea' with us.

Posh Picnics

Today I tested out the Miss Courtney's Afternoon Tea Picnic Basket. Collected it around noon and drove to derrynane - My husband, my two children and I had afternoon tea on the beach complete with china cups and wicker basket full of goodies. Officially my best day in a long time.
