Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Four of us went for a meal on Saturday night. We knew Tankardstown was nice, but this was an even higher level. Sublime food, and incredible service. We went with the standard menu, of starter, main and dessert. We were given at least 4 amuse...bouche tasters before and after the starter. The meal was delicious and not overly filling. We also had wine and Irish coffees. Was an expensive evening but worth every penny. The dining room is fantasic and we had a round table in a great part of the room. We'll be back againMore

We had dinner recently at the Brabazon Restaurant and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The 10-course tasting menu had a wonderful variety of flavours and it was obvious the chef had creatively designed the menu. Each dish was like a work of art, and they...all tasted so different and delicious. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable, explained every dish to us and helped with a wine recommendation. This added to the overall experience and I would definitely recommend it if you want to treat yourself to a special night out!More

Have been to Tankardstown for work events in the past and think it’s a beautiful setting. Visited recently to bring my sister for Sunday lunch. The food was good but portions were modest (which was fine with me but my sister wasn’t happy about it)...and overall found it very expensive for what it was. Over 150 quid for 3 people for Sunday lunch with no wine or extras.. that’s a huge amount of money. The starters and presentation were very nice so credit where it’s due there. The mains were pleasant but nothing exceptional and the same with desert. My panacotta was stodgier texture than it should be and the other deserts were again nice but not wow. The service was mixed - a waitress brought out our mains while we were still eating our starters which is pretty poor in any restaurant. There was one main chap who seemed good, the other staff seemed like temp student staff who needed more training. 5 star prices but not 5 star food or service. Disappointing.More

Here for lunch at 1pm on 28/7/23. Great food - I had Bass starter, Chicken main (OMG - fab) and lemon meringue desert. All fab. Husband had Greek salad; Gnocchi and Chocolate desert. Also great. Looked after very well by Karl when he took over...our table after starter. Particular compliments to pastry chef too - unbelievably great deserts. Just a small thing - my husband is vegetarian so another veg. main choice would have been good. Also as I don't drink I asked for a mocktail - wasn't received well and ended up not ordering one as a result - however that was before Karl took over our table so not related to his brilliant work at all.More

The newly renovated Brabazon restaurant is superb. Everytime we go back to Tankardstown we are greeted with a warm and welcoming reception from Tadhg and the team.

This is a really 5 star dining experience and an absolute hidden gem only 40 minutes from Dublin. Ample parking and options for accommodation on site.
