Castle Leslie Estate

Glaslough, Co.Monaghan
Nestled on 1,000 acres...
Castle Leslie Estate, nestled on 1,000 acres of undulating Irish countryside, dotted with ancient woodland and glittering lakes, is one of the last great Irish Castle estates still in the hands of its founding family. Located in Co. Monaghan, Ireland, the Estate is only 80 minutes from Dublin and 60 minutes from Belfast.
Hotel Accommodation
The Castle (twenty unique bedrooms), at the heart of the Estate, offers authentic original interiors and old-style hospitality and is a complete respite from the world. The Lodge (twenty nine country house boutique style bedrooms) is the social hub of the Estate and brings locals and guests together in an atmosphere of conviviality and comfort.
Perfect for Families
The Old Stable Mews & Village Cottages are the perfect spot for families and groups that want the convenience of hotel living combined with private home rental for their break.
Facilities and Activities
The Estate offers an idyllic setting for outdoor activity and adventure. It’s the perfect place to discover the thrill of exploring the countryside on horseback or foot, spend a few hours fishing on one of Ireland's best-preserved lakes or alternatively, enjoy a massage in the Victorian Treatment Rooms at the end of an activity packed day. Other activities include Hot Air Balloon rides, falconry, kayaking, clay pigeon shooting, and The Kids Saddle Club that runs weekday mornings during school holidays.
No matter where you eat on the Estate, you will enjoy the best of classic Irish cooking. They source regional and artisan foods locally and prepare and present them with imagination and flair. Freshness is their by-word. Their daily-baked breads and scones and homemade preserves are enough to tempt any guest. At Castle Leslie Estate, one of the finest luxury hotels Ireland, it’s all about choice. They cater for those looking for casual dining as well as those seeking a more formal, elegant and romantic experience. Guests can look forward to lazy breakfasts, light lunches or picnic lunches in the woodlands, Irish country cooking in the bar or restaurant or enjoy formal afternoon tea in the Castle.
