This has definitely been one of my 2011 highlights, albeit it with a twist! Some weeks back, I booked a New Years Eve dinner, specifically at the Brabazon Restaurant at Tankardstown House for myself, my Fiance and my Mother. We've eaten at Tankardstown several times since it opened some years back. Anyway, on arrival, we were told that our booking was for the Bistro and that the Brabazon was fully booked for a gala dinner. Needless to say we were utterly disappointed and pretty annoyed. However, we explained the situation to the two members of staff, Fran and Ciara and they both turned our disapointment into a little piece of magic. We had dinner at the Bistro which was beautiful and I must stress that we were extremely well looked after and we were invited up to the main house for some mulled wine which we enjoyed immensely. In fact we were so impressed and so taken with the house and the hospitality and service that we later decided that night to cancel our plans for a Manhattan wedding reception and instead, we made an appointment to see Gillian the next day. She spent hours discussing our plans with us and we have booked Tankardstown House for our upcoming wedding this year! I highly recommend the Tankardstown experience for the food, the location, the decor and ambience and the great staff team, especially Fran, Ciara and Gillian. It really is a little piece of luxurious 5 star heaven, just outside Slane. It oozes with style and sophistication without being stuffy. I simply cannot fault it. So what started out for us as a big misunderstanding, ended up being a huge gift in disguise. Every cloud has a silver lining and this was certainly our piece of silver on New Years Eve!
