Graema & Claire, May 2018

"We got married here in the beautiful Tankardstown House in April, it was such an amazing experience from the moment we arrived that I honestly did not want to leave. We booked our wedding 18 months before and from day 1 Sarah was so nice to deal with and very professional. She really listens and cares about the details which made us feel relaxed knowing everything was in order. Our tasting in November was another lovely experience where we felt so welcomed and spoilt we left feeling excited about our big day. The venue for me is the most amazing place to celebrate your special day with family and friends, every room in the House is decorated so beautifully with lots of character yet so comfortable and inviting. The master bedroom is absolutely stunning and I loved getting ready there on the morning of my wedding. We stayed the night before with our families dining in the Brabazon restaurant. The food and hospitality set the tone for the day itself, it was so lovely to settle in the day before and something I would highly recommended doing. The venue is fabulous but it’s the team that make it amazing and I can not thank everyone enough for the first class hospitality we received. We can not wait to go back and wish we could do it all over again."

Ann-Marie & Dave, April, 2018

"The Tankardstown team were totally amazing in helping organise the wedding. We could not have asked for another thing from you. I've lost count of how many of our guests commented on how fabulous and seamless everything was, and many people said it was the best venue they had been to, so a credit to you all. Sean and I had high expectations for the day, but I can honestly say Tankardstown managed to exceed all our expectations!! I just wish we could go back and do it all again now!"

Selena & Sean , February 2018

"It’s hard to put into words how happy and grateful we are to Tankardstown House. The day was perfect and we have to commend how the staff and the service they provided contributed to that. From the time we arrived they went out of their way to ensure our every need was met. However it was not only us, our family and friends are still raving about the customer service, the attention to detail and how they helped make the day so personal and intimate. A special thank you to Fran, Gillian, and Tadhg but to everyone who worked that day front and back of house, you truly pride yourself on what you do and it shows. Tankardstown house we are proud to say that you will always be part of our lives."
