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.

Dear Salinestar, Thank you for your review and feedback as recent Wedding guest at Tankardstown. I am very pleased you enjoyed the reception and that our team looked after you well. My apologies you experienced poor wifi and mobile signal, being an 18th Century Country House in a non-urban area means this is something beyond our control unfortunately. But is sometimes seen as an added bonus to the venue, providing the perfect escape from the outside world! :) Kindest Regards, Gary Britton

I arrived to a scheduled appointment to view the property as a prospective wedding location. A remarkably rude gentleman at front of house asked me who I was meeting and when I couldn’t provide the name on command instead of helping he barked “name?” loudly at me while avoiding
