Our History

From Cromwell to Conroy.

Tankardstown was formed by land confiscated in the 17th Century. Lands were merged to create demesnes with large houses as the focal point. In 1710, Tankardstown House passed to the Coddington family who lived at Oldbridge House, the battle of the Boyne site. By mid 18th Century, it was owned by Brabazon Morris.

Brabazon Morris mortgaged Tankardstown until it was bought out in 1815 by Francis Blackburne, Lord Chancellor of Ireland. For years afterwards, Tankardstown continued to be a private family residence, until the current owners, the Conroy's opened their doors to share their beautiful family home. The rest, as they say....

"It was the night after that day of heavy rain in late November. You may remember much of the island was beset by cloudbursts, followed by blocked drains and swollen rivers breaking their banks. I'd arranged to go to Tankardstown House with Gerard Carthy the previous week, but he couldn't make it. So this was our second attempt and, despite dire warnings on the radio about not driving unless you really had to, we set off for Slane."
