Held on Tuesday 3rd October, at Bord Bia’s Thinking House, the annual Georgina Campbell Awards is always a noteworthy event. These are Ireland’s longest-running food and hospitality awards, and highly respected by the industry. This year, Tankardstown House proudly picked up the award for Business Destination of the Year 2018.
A debut for Tankardstown House in this category, Georgina discussed her reasoning for choosing Tankardstown, explaining that “Although the main focus may be on large events, boutique business destinations offering high levels of comfort and service are of particular interest to us.”
Georgina continued that sometimes the business guest or corporate event manager is looking for something different, an away-from-it-all place, offering a change of pace, privacy, personal service and special extras such as lovely surroundings and an outstanding food and drink experience.
Somewhere like Tankardstown House in Co. Meath, which is famous for its good food and firmly established as one of Ireland’s most desirable country house destinations - a wonderful place for a short break, family reunion or special party. Likewise, this fine property is perfect for conferences or business meetings, seating up to 200 people in the Orangery, theatre style or smaller tables of 10, ideal for Board Management Team Meetings. Several reception rooms in the main house provide excellent break out areas.
We are very conveniently located (only a short drive from Dublin airport and handy from the North as well) and the area itself will repay time given to exploration – Newgrange World Heritage Site is nearby, also the new Distillery and Visitor Centre at Slane Castle, and there are lots of less obvious places to visit and things to do. Many attending a meeting or event here will decide to stay on a day or two….
We would like to sincerely thank Georgina Campbell Guide for this honourable award, and we look forward to further success in business tourism.
