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

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

Our room, Deirdre, was a delight - spacious, bright, the bed resplendent with pillows and cushions. We even had our own Nespresso machine. Our... More

Beautiful building, gorgeous food, exceptional staff, lovely accommodation. We stayed in the 'library room' and OMG it was palatial!!! It was just a pity that... More
