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.

The setting is magnificent the grounds contain breathtaking vistas over rolling countryside and well maintained demesne. The staff and service were top class, I feel I have to give particular mention to Jackie the waitress at our table. She epitomised everything that is great about Tankardstown House and more, she was courteous, polite, and professional. She made our day!

My brother had a wedding situated at this venue, and we had booked the whole place for this wedding. All the rooms are of an exceptional quality, and the function facilities, including the food and beverage was faultless. The breakfast venue was also exceptional. I wold love to fly to Ireland again from Australia, just for this place.

Set in acres of lovely grounds, Tankardstown House is a premium wedding venue. I visited last weekend and stayed in one of the cottages which was perfect with two bedrooms (couple of small wardrobes wouldn't go a miss!), one en-suite and another bathroom.

I would recommend this hotel anyway, but it sure is a nice stop when you've just landed in Dublin on a 7am flight and don't want to drive too far while getting accustomed to the driving. It is easy to find, close to the passage graves, and has excellent dining. Didn't see the rooms in the manor, but the cottage...

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
