We have recently attended a wedding at Tankardstown House and it was out of this world! I cannot praise it highly enough - food, service and accommodation were top notch. I would highly recommend it as a wedding venue - without a doubt, the best I have ever seen.

We stayed here as a couple for 1 night recently and found the whole experience first class. From the winding drive through the woods to the walk up to the impressive main building everything felt grand. The smell of the wood burning fire was the perfect welcome on a chilly Autumn evening and the receptionists were all welcoming and pleasant.... More

Yet another wonderful dining experience in one of my favourite Restaurants. From the moment we arrived, we were so well looked after by Derek and the lovely staff. Dinner was gorgeous, as always. Everything on the plate is explained to you and the flavours were wonderful. Cannot wait to go back again soon.

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
