Your Covid Questions Answered

Today is the day we’ve been waiting for. Hairdressers, pubs, restaurants and cafes are all opening up around the country, Not only that bit travel within and around our island is once again free flowing and encouraged. Here at Vintage Tea Trips we are planning our big reopening for Saturday July 11th. We cannot wait to host you on board with tea and cakes and swap our lockdown stories as we pass through our much loved and missed Dublin city.

We’ve had a few questions about how will we be operating so we thought we’d answer the most frequently asked here.
