Castle Leslie Estate in Glaslough, County Monaghan, Ireland
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 castle hotel in Ireland is led and managed by 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, County Monaghan, and considered to be one of the finest Castle Hotels Ireland has to offer, Castle Leslie Estate is just 80 minutes from Dublin and 60 minutes from Belfast. Following extensive restoration over the past decade, the Estate has been all but transformed to its original glory. Today, this luxury hotel in Ireland boasts a variety of luxurious accommodations, culinary options and a diverse range of on and off-site activities. It is the perfect location for a romantic adult break, a family activity holiday or a business meeting or celebration.

Reviews for Castle Leslie Estate
Between the stunning grounds and the incredible hospitality, we felt like royalty here at Castle Leslie. The castle was built in the 17th century, and everything in it is the real deal, from the tapestries to the toilets (obviously the indoor plumbing was added later). We stayed in The Red Room, which houses a stunning four-poster bed, ornately carved furniture and fireplace, and a view of Glenlough which looks like a postcard. We walked the grounds, had a delectable dinner at Snaffles (a MUST!), and participated in a bit of falconry with Newgrange Falconry before heading on to our next leg of travel. Castle Leslie is a must for anyone looking for an authentic castle experience. If you are looking to be outdoors, there are equestrian activities, hiking, boating, and falconry; for the homebody, there are antiquities, art, and rooms galore. If you are looking to read, write, or reflect, you'll find many quiet places to sit, and tea or cocktail service is only a ring away.
My husband, our dog and I spent 5 nights in the self-catering accommodation. We chose Castle Leslie because the website advertises "a variety of exceptional walks, from short jaunts to long leisurely strolls...on the Estate grounds". Unfortunately, this was far from true during our stay. As owners of a very anxious border collie, we regularly walk off the beaten track and in poor conditions, but the walks in Castle Leslie were exceptionally bad. We followed every trail on the map provided and found all of them so wet and neglected that they were wholly unpleasant at best, dangerous and impassable at worst. Other aspects of the stay were more positive. Our accommodation was clean and comfortable and the service and food in the Lodge bar were good. So, all in all, a reasonably nice place to stay if you do not wish to walk the grounds but unfortunately very disappointing for us.

Had dinner here last week - absolutely first class - I have eaten in many places but this is a real winner . We had the 5 course menu which sounds pricey at 65 euros but it is worth every penny. The flavours are still lingering a week later. The staff deserve a special mention - pleasant , efficient and they had a wonderful knowledge of the food. Go there if you get a chance - I can t wait to go back.

I recently attended a wedding in Castle Leslie and stayed overnight in "THE RED ROOM" The castle is situated in beautiful surroundings with a lake as a backdrop . Really good for wedding photographs. The wedding reception was in a very large marquee attached to the castle. The meal was excellent and the staff could not do enough for you. My room had a beautiful view of the lake. Breakfast was also very nice. After breakfast I went a walk in the grounds and then along the lakeside. It was a great start to the day. I hope to go back to the castle possibly for a long weekend and avail myself of some of the other activities on offer especially those relating to horse riding. Sorry I forgot to say my room was everything you could ask for in a castle. A very comfortable four poster bed, large bath and a double shower. There was no TV , HOORAY. As ARNIE said " I WILL BE BACK"
