Absolutely fabulous! Right from the welcome at reception through to departure we felt that we were guests at a country house estate. 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

This was our first visit to Tankardstown House Hotel at Slane, and it definitely won't be our last - in fact we are heading there this weekend with our friends! The suite was magnificent and the staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. We ate in Brabazon and I had the most delicious duck main course ever! Breakfast was wonderful... More

Myself and my sister is law recently went for afternoon tea here after it was closed for reovations. They have put up the price since the first time we went... More

Saw a deal on pigsback.com for this beautiful hotel and knew I had to buy. My partner and I had booked this break away months ago and it did not disappoint. Living only 15mins away it still felt like a break away from home! There are two entrances for the hotel - we came in the first we encountered which... More

I've been wanting to stay here for some time now but somehow never got round to it until this weekend. Came away for an indulgent overnight stay on a B&B+Dinner rate. I had heard great things about Tankardstown and it more than delivered. Beautiful house and grounds, blazing log fires, truly comfortable and beautifully decorated public rooms and wonderful heritage... More

We stayed for one night in one of the cottages which are adjacent to the main building. It was simply wonderful. The bedroom was very spacious and the bed was unbelievably comfortable. We ate in the Cellar and the food was very good with adequate variety for casual dining. Breakfast was in the Brabazon and it was excellent. There was... More

I was one of a party of 4 who recently had an overnight stay in Tankardstown House for dinner bed & breakfast. It was a fantastic experience from start to finish. We stayed in 2 of the courtyard cottages which are beautifully decorated, luxurious and comfortable. Lots of lovely finishing touches like nice toiletries. All the staff that we met... More

was recently at a friends wedding .Food was dreadful, bar was badly stocked. The venue was nice and the grounds.The staff were nice. I would not rate this place for a wedding as it is badly overpriced for a big house in the country much better of in a nice hotel for a wedding.

I am sorry that you thought the food was dreadful and the bar poorly stocked, as we have only had two weddings recently and have had nothing but positive comments from guests attending both events, perhaps you did not like the...

Stayed here first in dec 2011 when let down by a city centre hotel for our small civil partnership venue, Trish and her team stepped in and made us so welcome. Great venue for a winter wedding, courtyard stables converted to amazing holiday cottages and they even deliver brekafast to your door if needed. We had breakfast in the Brabazon... More
