Castle Leslie is located in Glaslough, County Monaghan, and considered to be one of the few remaining Irish estates still owned and run by its founding family. The family’s involvement extends to all aspects of the hotel, creating a personal, relaxed and very welcoming atmosphere.
Castle Leslie is just 80 minutes from Dublin and 60 minutes from Belfast. Following extensive restoration over the past decade, the estate has been transformed to its original glory. Nestled on 1,000 acres of undulated Irish countryside, surrounded by ancient woodlands and glittering lakes, with 20 miles of bridleways and 300 jumps, it’s a delight for the most experienced horse riders, with a huge indoor arena and all weather gallops to try out as well.
