Spent a wonderful 24 hours at Tankerstown. Got a superb deal which included the tasting menu at the Brabazon Restaurant which was worth the price of the package itself!

There was a problem getting a wheelchair from the main floor to the downstairs function room where the wedding meal was served.

Coffee and miniature buns in the tearoom was a lovely beginning to our stay. The various drawing rooms in the main house are beautifully decorated and furnished in keeping with a stately home.The bedroom was well proportioned and... More
