Attended a wedding here recently it is a fantastic location beautiful surroundings unfortunately there is a BUT. The service for the meal was very very slow over half hour wait between courses starters were very poor also. the Guinness was not good and at over five euros a pint it should be over all very disappointing

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night on 29th May (I think). We arrived fairly late but had reserved a table for dinner. When we arrived the guy at reception greeted us with a smile and let us know that our table was ready in the restaurant whenever we wanted to head down. We were very impressed with... More

Myself and my new wife Maggie got married in Tankardstown last Friday 11, having booked the venue after our first stay there last November. Simply put, this place is faultless. Food is very very good, beautifully presented, fantastic service. Rooms are beautiful, elegant, spacious, modern comforts combined with old world charm. Their staff are exceptional, nothing is ever too much... More

We tried to have a special Sunday lunch for our American friends, and met the most unfriendly staff at the Brabazon Restaurant, who appeared to think it a chore to serve us. All the staff looked grumpy and not once was there a smile or friendly word. The food was mediocre also, tough and gristly meat and badly cooked vegetables,... More

In fairness Tankardstown is a beautiful venue with lovely grounds. However the wedding meal we recently had was a letdown.Wrong temperatures of the beef given to guests . Vegetables overcooked to the point of being mush.Starters and desserts were mediocre with long delays between courses.Pity... it could have so much better.

We attended a wedding in Tankardstown yesterday and wish to compliment the establishment for a superb experience. The staff had just the right mix of professionalism and efficiency together with warmth and sincerity. The food was first class and attention to detail left nothing to be desired. The ambiance was delightful and despite being a place of grandeur one didn't... More
