Nestled on 1,000 acres of undulating Irish countryside, dotted with ancient woodlands and glittering lakes, Castle Leslie Estate is one of the last great Irish estates still in the hands of its founding family. The Leslie Family arrived in Ireland in the 16th Century and bought the Estate at that time. Today, this Irish estate is led and managed by Brian Baldwin and Sammy Leslie and governed by a Family Trust. The family considers itself to be guardians of the land, and their overwhelming desire is to protect the Estate for future generations.
Located in Glaslough, Co. Monaghan, Castle Leslie Estate is just 80 minutes from Dublin and 60 minutes from Belfast. Following extensive restoration over the past two decades, the family has transformed the Estate to its original glory. Today, this beautiful Irish estate boasts a variety of accommodation at The Castle, The Lodge and the Old Stable Mews.
In July 2019, they completed a beautiful new extension to The Lodge which is their four-star country house style property on the Estate, by adding 21 stunning new bedrooms, bringing the total bedroom capacity at this property to 50! They also added a gorgeous 40-seater capacity conservatory.
The Estate has multiple dining options including a 2-AA Rosette award winning restaurant called Snaffles, casual dining is available in Conor’s Bar which serves an extensive menu. Guests can also look forward to a hearty full Irish breakfast, picnic lunches in the woodlands and Afternoon Tea at The Castle.
In addition, Castle Leslie Estate offers a host of activities for their guests which include horse riding, fishing, boating, walking trails, clay target shooting, falconry, hot air balloon rides and spa treatments. It is full of character, characters and personality and is the ultimate Irish rural escape — perfect for anyone looking to get away from it all and experience something really different!
