Tankardstown House

Whether for a short break, a special occasion, a good meal or just a light bite and a browse around the garden and gift shop, this lovely period property near Slane is well worth a special visit.

Arriving at dusk with the courtyard fountain, walled garden and sweeping grounds all romantically lit up, you could imagine you are pulling up to a grand Tuscan villa – and, sipping wine on the sheltered bistro patio in fine summer weather, the illusion is complete.

Since buying the property in 2002, Trish and Brian Conroy have restored and renovated the house with consideration and taste – and, thanks to their efforts, it also stands proud once again on the parkland that belonged to the original estate.

The whole property is under continued renovation and development and, although the main house was originally available only as a private venue for groups or events, the Conroys later decided to open all rooms for independent bookings – so they are now able to offer 18 luxurious double bedrooms, six of which are splendid period rooms situated in the main house, with additional accommodation in the courtyard.The entire house is also still available for rent on an exclusive basis for special occasions, and the courtyard cottages are available for self-catering (see story on self-catering site).

The main house is very beautiful, with several elegant reception rooms, an exceptional dining room, huge kitchen, games room and more. A small bar has recently been added; initially intended to meet the needs of guests attending events (it is a gorgeous wedding venue), it now adds an extra dimension to the appeal of Tankardstown as a short breaks destination.

No expense has been spared with fine antiques, splendid mirrors, attractive artwork, and only the very finest fabrics and furnishings feature in every room; the overall impression is one of immaculate taste and luxurious comfort.

The charming 18th century stable yard has been converted into elegant cottages, available for self catering (see self-catering site) but also for B&B - breakfast can be delivered to your door on request.

Each bedroom in both the main house and cottages is elegantly decorated in a different style, and most have bath and shower ensuite - plus additional comforts including waffle cotton robes, slippers and Molton Brown toiletries. And, near the cottages, there’s also a Garden Party Room, fitness studio and two treatment rooms.

Tankardstown has quickly established itself as one of Ireland’s most desirable country house destinations - a wonderful place for a short break, the house also lends itself particularly well to small weddings (up to 70 guests can be catered for to dine in the house and a marquee can be arranged for larger numbers), and is ideal for a family reunion or special birthday party.
