From the moment we visited Tankardstown House, we knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding. The house, garden and grounds are exquisite and immaculately kept, and the staff are just incredible. We stayed at Tankardstown the night before our wedding, as well as the wedding day itself, and we were blown away at how helpful, friendly, professional and wonderful everyone who works there was. From the moment you enter until you leave, you feel truly special and no ask is too much. The food and wine is also exceptional, whether you have a dietary requirement or are just a fussy eater, you will be impressed and will not go hungry. If you are considering Tankardstown House for your wedding, booking the venue will be the best decision you will ever make. It exceeded all our expectations, and we already cannot wait to go back as a guest and enjoy the beauty of Tankardstown House once again.

We could not have ask for more from the staff at Tankardstown house, they made our day absolutely perfect. Not one thing was too much for them and to be honest we didn’t have to ask for anything because they were also one step ahead and had everything organised perfectly. From the moment we stepped on site in Tankardstown we fell in love and knew we wanted to celebrate our wedding there. Tankardstown made organising our wedding incredibly easy from planning the guest accommodation to organising the all the little details of the day. We could not recommend Tankardstown enough and are only sad that our day is over.

The venue was beautiful and our wedding coordinator was lovely and helpful in the lead up to the wedding. Communication was a little difficult at times as they only deal with you over email. We weren’t given a contact number for our wedding coordinator. The staff that managed the bedrooms and guest allocation was also very good and helpful. Some of the service staff on the day seemed a bit stressed and were rude to a couple of guests. There were one or two things we had planned that the venue staff told us they would manage but in the end they didn’t do it which was a little disappointing. And we left behind a good few items including our unity and remembrance candles that were never given back to us. We don’t know for certain but likely thrown away unfortunately. The venue doesn’t allow you to bring in outside food or alcohol, so we weren’t able to have the Prosecco truck for example. They will offer to try do something for you themselves which is of course an extra expense. They do offer late bar and music can play late which we were grateful for. The food was really good including the late night food. We were allowed to have noiseless fireworks which was a special moment to our day. Overall we had the best day ever and we enjoyed every minute of it. I would recommend Tankardstown to others. Just to be conscious of some of the limitations which every venue will have.

From the moment we first drove up the long driveway at Tankardstown House, we knew this was a special place. We booked our wedding the first time we visited and from then on the entire experience with them was amazing. Everything was planned and executed perfectly, from the planning to the tasting to all the last minute details. Our coordinator Aine was just fabulous to deal with and made sure everything on the day went smoothly. It was everything we could have hoped for and more, we can’t wait to go back for our 1st anniversary in December!

From the day we stepped in to view the venue until the morning after the wedding when we left the staff were simply outstanding. Yes the venue and grounds are stunning, however the staff are INCREDIBLE & what made it for me. Aine our wedding coordinator was with us every step of the way & she went above and beyond to make sure it all went perfect. Sarah Jane was a trooper too organising all the rooms and making sure we had everything we needed and everyone was looked after. Fran was literally like an appearing angel, there at the right time everytime we needed anything. All the waiting staff, the driver and our amazing barman Jordan. Thank you all for the most magical day which we couldnt have had without you. Wish we could do it all again xxx

We knew from the first time we drove up the driveway to Tankardstown that it was where we would get married and it did not disappoint. Tankardstown exceeded all of our expectations and helped deliver for us the most magical day.
In the lead up to the wedding Sarah-Jane was absolutely brilliant in helping us organise the rooms and for accommodation and a family dinner the night prior to the wedding. Our coordinator Gemma was such a gem and nothing was too much of an ask. She was incredibly organised and made the wedding planning so seamless and as stress-free as possible for us. On the day Fran seemed to be everywhere and looking after everyone at the same time!
We honestly had the best day and Tankardstown not only made us feel so special, but all of our guests felt like royalty and are still commenting on the level of service and professionalism of the team. The food was brilliant and we?ve never seen a wedding dinner served so efficiently ? all the tables got their food at the same time.
The venue itself is absolutely stunning and no matter what the weather, the atmosphere at Tankardstown is relaxed, intimate and luxurious. However it is the staff who truly make it an unforgettable experience. We can?t wait for an excuse to return.

Amazing experience working with Tankardstown to plan our special day. I especially want to recognise our wedding planner Ruth White in Tankardstown, she was a great deal of help especially in the few weeks running up. Overall the day was amazing and all guests continue to complement the venue, food and service. Everything went as planned and wish I could do it all again.

Tankardstown house was the perfect venue from the moment we stepped foot on site. The team were phenomenal and the service was next to none. Aine our coordinator was brilliant and was Sarah Jane on reservations as we had allocated guests their rooms. Absolutely loved the day and it was perfect in every way. The bridal prep suite is gorgeous and the orangery itself is stunning. Can't fault it. Will definitely visit again to celebrate our anniversary.

My review is mixed because I was really let down by the way my complaints were dealt with.
The venue of course is stunning and the majority of people really enjoyed themselves. There were a few problems with the rooms and people not receiving their dinner. The steaks were all well done despite ordering medium and bride and groom medium rare. Break down of bar bill was never provided despite being requested following morning.
Breakfast service was disappointing.
Overall it didn't ruin the wedding it was just very disappointing that there was no follow through and the venue seemed to not care at all about any of the issues we had.
In the lead up Gemma was absolutely amazing.
Felt very let down that there was no follow up or acknowledgment that mistakes were made but I guess once they have your money that doesn't matter!

What a stunning venue, we fell in love instantly. Our initial interaction with Sarah, our wedding co-ordinator, was fantastic but unfortunately she went on maternity leave, just weeks before our wedding. The handover, or lack there of, was very poor. We were 'introduced' to Aine, new co-ordinator, via a response to an email sent to Sarah. The standard of service was simply not the same from there on in. There was a number of issues in the days leading up to the wedding, which Tadhg -GM, handled with the utmost professionalism.
Both Tadhg and Des went over and above to make our day special, but sadly there was some very disappointing moments throughout. The most frustrating being Aine not following the musicians instructions when counting us in for our entrance, which sadly ruined our video and photographs. We relayed this information in the following days but have yet to receive an apology, or any response.
Response from Tankardstown House
Dear Emma,
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We're delighted to hear that you fell in love with our stunning venue and that the initial interaction with Sarah was fantastic.

We apologise for any confusion during the handover period. It is my understanding from actual email threads that Sarah had communicated her maternity leave via email, but it appears the message may not have reached you successfully. We appreciate your feedback on the entrance coordination, and while we sincerely apologise for any disappointment it may have caused, I do believe there was a lack of communication between the musician and our coordinator Aine. Please know that it was never our intention to compromise any aspect of your special day. I am grateful for your acknowledgment of the team's efforts in handling the challenges leading up to the wedding day.

We take your feedback seriously and will use it to continually improve our services. If there's anything more you'd like to discuss or if you have further concerns, please feel free to reach out directly.

Wishing you all the best in your married life, and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to Tankardstown House in the future.

We had been planning our wedding with tankardstown since 2019, the pandemic pushed it out two years. From the very beginning, we worked with Sarah who was nothing but professional, responsive, detail oriented, and so friendly. Once it got closer to the wedding, Sarah allowed me to go through every detail with her, there were a ton of emails back and forth and zoom calls. She made the entire experience very positive and was easy to work with. Again, we live in New York and have never been to Ireland, let alone to the venue. Some people thought we were crazy. I also have a disabled father who is in a wheelchair that needed very specific accommodations. When we arrived at tankardstown, we were in complete awe of the beauty. The grounds were just exceptional. The staff immediately greeted us and started helping us with our bags. Our party was the only one on site and we all arrived from New York, on one bus, at one time, 53 of us. All of the staff was so friendly and helpful. They handled my father?s accommodations beautifully and I couldn?t be more thankful. He was driven from the house to the Barbazon every time and stayed in the library suite since it?s on the main floor. The other accommodations were also so beautiful and comfortable. Our guests stayed in the main house, the cottages, the barn, and the stables, all stunning and comfortable. The bridal suite was stunning, I felt like a princess. One of my biggest concerns was the food?we are Italians from New York. I have to say, the food was delicious. I mean, we have been to so many weddings and you rarely ever remember the food. But our guests could not stop talking about the food. We had our rehearsal dinner in the Barbazon and it was just perfect. Everything completely exceeded our expectations. I?m sad that it?s over and I hope to visit the venue one day again. Fran also gets a special shout out, he?s the man. The late night food was also so good and came out at the perfect time. I can?t say enough good things about the venue, staff, food, and our experience!!

Sarah, the wedding coordinator was a dream to work with and made everything run so smoothly, nothing was too much of an ask, and she was so understanding!! Communication was always very good!
Fran and Des were there on hand on the day to help too - again, they made sure everything went to plan and were two gentlemen from start to finish.

The food was so good, everyone commented on how amazing it was!! We cannot wait to come and visit again, whether that is to stay overnight or dine at the Brabazon restaurant.

Tankardstown was an absolute dream of a wedding venue!
We originally booked the venue during COVID, having only seen parts over zoom. When we finally had a chance to see the venue in person, we were blown away!
Planning the wedding from abroad was also challenging, but wedding support team was excellent and so flexible! We couldn't have asked for a better team.
The wedding day was absolutely amazing, and we are still in awe of the amazing job Tankardstown did. Every single detail was done perfectly, the food was amazing, the drinks were great, and a special shout-out to Fran, who was an absolute star! Literally there to help with every little request and detail!
We cannot thank the team at Tankardstown enough. It truly was the most magically venue, with guests will talking about what a dream it was!

Tankardstown House is an amazing venue for any couple. Organising a wedding during COVID was really challenging and the only constant was the team at Tankardstown House. They were extremely responsive and supportive to any query or suggestion and made you feel at ease from the moment you booked. The main feedback I have received from my wedding guest was the wedding felt like it has been hosted by a family, all the staff were extremely inviting and kind and became part of the wedding. I truly cannot thank the team at Tankardstown House enough for everything they have done and how special they made our day.

I would highly recommend Tankardstown House for a wedding. We got married in June 2021 and due to Covid were only allowed 25 guests. Tankardstown were so accomodating, even in the months up to the wedding date, Sarah, our wedding planner was in touch often to answer all our questions and offer advice.
The day itself was fabulous, and the staff at Tankardstown made the reception so special. It is a very good sign of how professional they are, when a wedding venue that is more used to having 100's of guests at a wedding, can make a wedding with just 25 guests be just magical. We are truly very grateful and will never forget our special day!

Our wedding at Tankardstown was everything we could have dreamed of and more.
From our first viewing when we met the lovely Gillian we instantly fell in love.
The venue itself is simply stunning and has to be seen to be believed but what really made our wedding was the level of service we received. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff at Tankardstown and we truly felt like royalty for the weekend. We had some small babies in the immediate wedding party and the team could not have been more accommodating in ensuring our little ones were looked after.
The food was sublime and every guest we have spoken to since the wedding has romanced about their meal and the wonderful time they had on the day.
Special thanks to Gillian, Tadgh and Fran who went out of their way to make it a weekend we will never ever forget.
We will most definitely be making Tankardstown an annual destination to visit on our anniversary as it will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

I couldn't fault the service provided to us by the whole team at Tankardstown House. The food, service, wine selection was impeccable and the lengths they went to accommodate our requests were fabulous. Their recommended list of suppliers were excellent also. The only thing I would say to future couples is not to sweat the small stuff and little nick nack wedding trends... Tankardstown is a top class venue and doesn't require any d?cor really. If you want to add an extra, my advice would be to throw some money behind the bar! Also trust the team, I am an overly organised person and felt I didn't have enough contact with the team, however from 4 months out they are ready day and night to meet any requests and guide you through your day! Huge shout out from us to Holly and Sarah Jane, they made our life so easy! Also if you can try to go to the open nights they host even if you have booked! They let you get excited about your day and you really get a feel for it!!

Tankardstown was the first and only wedding venue we looked at when we started wedding planning. After visiting the venue and speaking with our wedding coordinator, Gillian, we cancelled our other viewings because we knew we had found our perfect venue. The grounds are gorgeous and the house has so many charming areas! We were lucky enough to have an outdoor wedding in the courtyard and it was absolutely stunning. We had an Indian/Irish ceremony and the entire team was so accommodating and helpful in helping us organize the event. Gillian was absolutely amazing during the planning process and all of our requests were met with enthusiasm. We could not be happier with our wedding day and the entire team at Tankardstown went above and beyond to ensure a memorable weekend for us and all of our guests!

Tankardstown House and all the staff working there are incredible! From the moment we drove through the gates onto the beautiful avenue, we started admiring the immaculately groomed gardens and the elegance of Tankardstown House ahead, we knew this was our ?wedding venue?!

The staff at Tankardstown are wonderful. They exude professionalism on all levels, they were a huge support to us in the build up to our wedding, and ensured that our wedding day ran seamlessly.
The venue itself is pure luxury. We loved the intimacy of sharing it with our family, friends and loved ones on our wedding day. Our guests enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere in the reception rooms before going to the Orangery where they experienced exquisite culinary delights. The d?cor, the brightness and warmth of the Orangery allowed our guests to sit back while enjoying our fabulous wedding menu. Everyone soaked up their surroundings on the day and danced the night away!

Our guests are still telling us how much they enjoyed our wedding, the wonderful hospitality they received from staff and ALL the amazing food they tasted. We can wholeheartedly say that we had the best day of our lives in the intimacy of Tankardstown House with all of our loved ones. It was a truly magical experience and it was all down to all the brilliant staff working there.

We had our special day at Tankardstown House back in August. We are so delighted we chose Tankardstown. It's obviously a gorgeous venue, with a stunning light filled ballroom and an amazing manor house and grounds, but it's the staff at Tankardstown that make it truly special. Our wedding coordinator Holly was on hand to answer every question we had even prior to us booking. In the lead up to the day, all of the staff were so accommodating when we came to visit and show family members around. When the big day finally rolled around the whole team, and especially Holly, Fran and Tadhg made it so so special for us. Fran and Tadhg were there till the last person went to bed and were there again bright and early for breakfast, chatting with all of our guests and genuinely taking an interest in how their night had been. Both of us really enjoy eating out and treating our selves to high quality restaurants, so it was really important to us that the food at our wedding was stand out. Tankardstown didn't disappoint. The food was out of this world, it really is Michelin star quality and we received so many compliments from guests on how gorgeous the food was. Our wedding is such a memorable experience due to the staff at Tankardstown. We have booked a night there over the winter just to relive it all and eat some more of that delicious food.

We absolutely loved our wedding in Tankardstown and would definitely recommend it to anyone. There are so many positives to mention about the venue (stunning location and venue, fantastic food etc) but the real selling point for me is the staff.
We had Sarah as our wedding organiser and she was so helpful throughout the process dealing with the many different questions we had, helping us to plan out the day and made everything run smoothly so that we didn't have to worry about anything. I can't speak highly enough of her.
Tadhg was brilliant for all things to do with the food from the tastings right through to the BBQ on the second day, accommodating the food requirements of every guest.
A special mention to Fran who was always there to make sure everything was going as planned and making sure everyone was enjoying the day, down to the smallest touches like knowing the names of our nieces and nephews to make sure they were happy with their meals.
Overall it was the perfect venue for us where we were able to have an outdoor ceremony in the gardens and enjoy a fun and relaxing weekend with our family and friends.

Beautiful venue! We knew from the first viewing that it was exactly what we were looking for. Our wedding planner Sarah was fantastic and made the whole experience stress free. They liased with all our suppliers on the day and ensured everything was set up and ran perfectly. All of our guests complimented on both the quality of food and service from all of the staff. We had a fantastic day and couldn't recommend Tankardstown House enough as a venue for a wedding. The house and gardens are amazing and the friendliness and the professionalism of all the staff really makes this venue perfect.

You won't be disappointed if you choose Tankardstown as your wedding venue. From the moment we met Sarah at the October 2017 open day we knew nothing would top it. We had our wedding May 2019 and booked the entire weekend which was the best decision. There is so much to say I don't even know where to start! The house itself and grounds make for some amazing pictures, we took all of our wedding shots there which saved time and meant we could mingle with guests at the reception. The options for canapes and drinks on arrival are really impressive and plenty of them. Our guests were blown away by the choice they had. The rooms have a real wow factor and you can tell they are well looked after, candles lighting everywhere is a lovely touch. The bedrooms both in the main house and in the guest houses are fantastic, everyone that stayed commented on how lovely they were and it's great to be able to have the entire venue to yourself if you want. The food for the dinner is nothing short of amazing, nobody will be disappointed. One of the hardest choices we had to make was deciding the menu because it was all delicious. The orangery is such a gorgeous room it doesn't need much decorating. We had our BBQ in there on day 2 also. Sarah, Fran, Tadhg and the team in Tankardstown really know how to make your day special, nothing was to much to ask and everyone was so pleasant to deal with.

I recommended Tankardstown House to my cousin who was coming home from USA to get married in Ireland and she was not disappointed and neither was I!!!

The ceremony room was beautiful, the food gorgeous and the bedrooms out of this world.
