Tankardstown, Co Meath, Ireland
Stunning restoration of a Georgian mansion (sleeps up to 12) and some beautiful stable cottages (sleeping 2-4), all set in glorious parkland
It was all because of the 2006 Ryder Cup. Patricia and Brian Conroy had returned to Ireland in 2002 after several years in Hampshire, and spent four years resurrecting the
Georgian mansion from complete disrepair.
It was all set to be theirdream home, combininglavish fabricsandmodern bathroomswithantiquefurniture andfamily heirlooms.
But word spread round the county of Trish’s flair forstylish design and thoughtful detail. Then the Ryder Cup scout rang up, offering ‘silly money’ to rent the property for the golf tournament. While on her inspection she saw the unmodernisedstable blockbeside the house, and proposed to throw that into the mix, if it could be refurbished in time.
Six whirlwind months later, the Conroys moved out for a week and 24 Texans moved in. It was such a success that they offered B&B accommodation in their 7 stable block cottages from then on. And at the beginning of 2008 they moved out of the main house permanently, making it available on an exclusive basis for weddings, parties and events.
Tankardstown country house sleeps 12 and is
from €3,000 a night
, a one or two bed cottage is from €100 per person per night.
