At a wedding here a week ago, having been to numerous weddings in the past couple of years this stands out as the best hotel. Food, service, venue, rooms in the cottages........all excellent. Certainly recommend this very highly as a wedding venue.

We got the tasting menu and found it excellent. Could not fault any of the 8/9 courses. We choose a red wine from south east France which was also excellent. Staff were friendly and efficient , who explained all the various ingreduents, mostly local, used in the food preparation. It even has its own smokery. The only criticism I would...

We seized an opportunity to escape from reality for 24 hours recently and spent an overnight in Tankardstown. We loved the laid back atmosphere of the main house.

Stayed here overnight for a family celebration. House is opulent beautiful furnishings. We stayed in the courtyard houses which are beautiful but layouts are challenging for groups. You have to walk through one bedroom to reach another one which is ok for close family. The biggest disappointment was the restaurant which I had heard great reviews. We opted for a...

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
