As far back as the 10th century, Viking raiders found the warm-hearted Celts tended to build houses at crossroads and usually left the door open to encourage travelers to stop for a meal. Visitors could expect the very best!

Harold and I grew up in rural Colorado and Nebraska, but have deep Celtic roots. Our families always had room for one more at the table and the best we had to offer.

We returned to our ancestral roots in Ireland and Great Britain back in the 1970's. It was during these visits in the homey cottages, large and small tea houses that the dream of Celtic Tea House was born.

We Welcome You!

"Life is like a cup of tea. It's all in how you make it."

This saying was found in the Old Houlihan's Bar about 1/4 of a mile from Madeline Daniels Grandmother's ancestral home. Her home in Coolfin Abbey, County of Galway, Ireland of was located at the foot of the lovely Coolfin Castle. Coolfin Castle was basically destroyed by Oliver Cromwell's Army. Many a lovely ballad has been written to commemorate this fallen castle.
