We only chose the tea and scone option and it was excellent. Pot of tea was good size, the scone was fresh as was the cream and jam. Staff were attentive and engaging . The venue is beautiful , relaxed atmosphere and I would love to return for lunch or dinner.

We arrived with 8 of our close friends from Dublin just after lunch and were quickly escorted to our amazing rooms in a beautiful stone courtyard. The wedding was held in the adjoining... More

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. Our room in the house was gorgeous, it was bright, spacious with some stunning pieces of furniture. For me the pièce de résistance was a Nespresso machine in the room, with tiny... More

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... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of an overnight stay and dinner in the Brabazon restaurant this week. We were warmly welcomed by friendly, relaxed staff - and the smell of an open log fire! Our room, Deirdre, was a delight - spacious, bright, the bed resplendent with pillows and cushions. We even had our own Nespresso machine. Our... More
