Fodor's Review

Voted Ireland's best private house hotel in a national newspaper, Tankardstown is a sumptuous Georgian-era manor house with a classic walled garden and 80 acres of breathtaking parkland. This squat, two-story house is sheltered by a forested hill. The property was once in a state of absolute disrepair, but owners Trish and Brian Conroy lovingly restored it. No expense was spared on the six guest rooms or the seven courtyard cottages, which have cascading drapes, delicate

plasterwork ceilings, and Sheraton-style antiques. In the old cowshed, the Brabazon restaurant offers great outdoor dining options in summer and an intimate, romantic dining room for the cooler months.
