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 décor, 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.

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.
