A visit to the restaurant at Tankardstown House proved really surprising - the place is so tastefully done. The staff were attentive and not over the top. The food excellent, especially given we are both vegetarians. The surprise was the bill was reasonable. I would gladly have paid an extra 20%. We'll be back!

My husband and I went here for a special birthday celebration for dinner only. It was a gift to us so we went all out and had the tasting menu. It was such a treat. We would highly recommend it. So tasty. It was not cheap but as a special treat it was worth it. Loved the beetroot sorbet.

We attended a family wedding here recently. This is a fabulous wedding venue. Gardens are manicured to perfection, staff readily accessible yet not intrusive, spotlessly clean and seriously comfortable seating everywhere. Food served at reception was piping hot and delicious - really impressed. We stayed in the cottages just beside the hotel and again everything was good. Beds clean and...

Jackie is the best barmaid. She deserves more than the title she has. She satisfies all the customer's needs and beyond. TShe is sound as they come. She's as good as they come. Great person to have to meet people

On arrival there was a range of drinks available & some canapés. The latter were nice (not great and the wine from the bar was not great either in my opinion but everything from then on got...

It was relatively busy with groups celebrating birthdays & baby showers and others having afternoon tea for two. There were two young female staff attending to everyone's needs and they did a fantastic job. Try it, not...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A magnificent 80 acre estate, comprising a luxurious 18th century Manor House, adjacent courtyard of beautifully appointed Cottage Suites, and lower courtyard where award winning Brabazon Restaurant, the more casual Cellar Restaurant and The Tea Gardens are located. Understated elegance, relaxed atmosphere, just some of the adjectives used to describe our beautiful property. Located in Co. Meath, the country estate is only 40 minutes from Dublin and just over an hour from Belfast. A true oasis of tranquillity and beauty, Tankardstown House has been superbly restored throughout and offers you, your family and friends a unique opportunity to experience hospitality in a beautiful privately owned home. The country estate offers an idyllic setting for outdoor activity and adventure. It's the perfect place to discover the thrill of exploring the countryside on bicycle or foot. Tankardstown House is situated just 15 minutes from the World Heritage site of Newgrange, the Battle of the Boyne Site and Slane Castle, renowned for its own History & Whiskey Tours. For Golfers, the nearby parkland course of Headfort or the links at Baltray, will challenge any level of golfer. Alternatively, you might prefer to enjoy a spa treatment at the 'Hide-Out' to end an activity packed day, relax in the outdoor hot tub or unwind with a book in one of our many beautiful rooms. Other activities include hot air balloon rides, clay pigeon shooting and boating. ... more   less
