I would recommend this hotel anyway, but it sure is a nice stop when you've just landed in Dublin on a 7am flight and don't want to drive too far while getting accustomed to the driving. It is easy to find, close to the passage graves, and has excellent dining. Didn't see the rooms in the manor, but the cottage...

What makes Tankardstown so special is its staff. From the warm welcome to the efficient and attentive service, everyone seemed genuinely invested in ensuring that we were well and truly spoilt. At check-in I mentioned that my partner was vegan and at the Brabazon restaurant that evening the maitre d already knew and had consulted with the talented chef who...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A magnificent 80 acre estate, comprising a luxurious 18th century Manor House, adjacent courtyard of beautifully appointed Cottage Suites, and lower courtyard where award winning Brabazon Restaurant, the more casual Cellar Restaurant and The Tea Gardens are located. Understated elegance, relaxed atmosphere, just some of the adjectives used to describe our beautiful property. Located in Co. Meath, the country estate is only 40 minutes from Dublin and just over an hour from Belfast. A true oasis of tranquillity and beauty, Tankardstown House has been superbly restored throughout and offers you, your family and friends a unique opportunity to experience hospitality in a beautiful privately owned home. The country estate offers an idyllic setting for outdoor activity and adventure. It's the perfect place to discover the thrill of exploring the countryside on bicycle or foot. Tankardstown House is situated just 15 minutes from the World Heritage site of Newgrange, the Battle of the Boyne Site and Slane Castle, renowned for its own History & Whiskey Tours. For Golfers, the nearby parkland course of Headfort or the links at Baltray, will challenge any level of golfer. Alternatively, you might prefer to enjoy a spa treatment at the 'Hide-Out' to end an activity packed day, relax in the outdoor hot tub or unwind with a book in one of our many beautiful rooms. Other activities include hot air balloon rides, clay pigeon shooting and boating. ... more   less
