We had pre-booked our table in advance and they gave us a lovely private area in one of the arches. I called ahead the previous day... More

Good morning LiamH. Many thanks for your review of Tankardstown when you stayed with us back in August 2015. I am delighted that you enjoyed the best part of your stay with us, however it is a pity that you did not mention to us immediately that your breakfast was not to your satisfaction as this would have allowed us...

Myself and five colleagues spent two days in Tankardstown for a business meeting. The facilities are great, big roaring fires, staff were exceptionally helpful . The restaurant we went for the taster menu of 10 courses all beautifully presented . The rooms are incredible big spacious bed, high ceilings. The grounds were great to walk around and the outdoor jacuzzi... More

Was at a wedding at Tankardstown between Xmas and New Year. This place is absolutely beautiful. Each room was nicer than the one before with roaring open fires, lovely soft couches, beautiful pictures and period furniture. It was tastefully decorated for Xmas which added to the atmosphere. We went downstairs to the orangery for the wedding meal and it was... More

Stayed here last friday as a birthday treat. We were greeted by a gorgeous open fire and a very friendly receptionist (Rachael) who brought us to our beautiful room - Georgina and showed us around the house. Although it's incredibly luxurious, it still felt very homely and we were made to feel so welcome by all the staff. There were... More

Exemplary service, discrete menu done to perfection, in he middle of no where but just 40 min from Dublin, this is my 8th or 9th time there, every time I get more inspired and want to go back . Barbazon restaurant, the gardens, food and the staff are of he highest standard. Truly an Irish gem.

We had a family wedding there. We rented a cottage in the old Coach House. It was absolutely fabulous. You could want for nothing more. The room downstairs was huge, with a full kitchen, dining table and six chairs. Upstairs the bedroom was luxurious and well appointed. Importantly, the room was warm and welcoming and you could control the heat... More
