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.

Following extensive restoration over the past decade, the Estate has been all but transformed to its original glory.

Reviews for Castle Leslie Estate
This was my 1st time staying in Castle Leslie and it was an amazing experience. Everything was perfect, from the food to the grounds. The lodge offers fantastic food and service.. Rory! We stayed in the room of calm which was beautiful followed by a great breakfast. The staff were exceptional and so welcoming. Thanks so much Owen and Plamen. Diane at reception you're a star

This was our second visit to Castle Leslie, we stayed in the Lodge for 2 nights last year and returned to stay in the Castle. Although I enjoyed our stay in the Lodge, loved the room (Dick) and the bathroom, I preferred the Castle. The lodge is quite busy and always buzzing where as the Castle is much more peaceful and relaxing. The rooms are fabulous in both the Lodge and the Castle (no television's in the Castle). We had lunch and dinner in the Lodge, waitress service was excellent on both occasions and the manager checked with us to ensure everything was ok. Breakfast in the Castle was very good, however it was busy and some people had to wait until tables were free. The concierge was a lovely man who drove us down to the Lodge for dinner and gave us very interesting information on the Castle, do try to have a chat with him while you are there, last time we visited, he told us a little bit of history about the family and some of the paintings in the Castle. Wish we could have stayed for longer and I can't wait to return.

Treated to a stay here for my birthday earlier this month! We stayed in the lodge, our room was called "grundy" . It was beautiful, warm and clean, and we were welcomed with some chocolates and a bottle of processco in our room. The room had everything we needed, including a hair dryer and tea/coffee making facilities. The bed was huge and very comfortable, we both slept very well! We ate in Conor's and both enjoyed our meal which was reasonably priced. Our favourite part was the tables that had chess boards on them so we had a few drunken games! Breakfast was served in snaffles restaurant and was AMAZING! We got a full fry and a continental buffet of cereals, fruits, breads and fresh juice. It's a huge estate, and lovely for walks. We had great weather which was nice and you can even have a picnic there. I had a horse riding session which was great. I felt very comfortable and safe with both my horse (squire) and the instructor. (Sorry I couldn't remember her name) She was so chilled and very professional. I'd highly recommend!! (Riding gear provided which is good). We also opted for afternoon tea in the castle, it was an experience. We both aren't really into things like that but who could say no to tea in a castle?! The treats were fresh and good variety with endless tea/coffee! We were able to take home anything we left in a box and they gave us a little treat also from castle Leslie which was nice :-) Wifi is free in the estate and fairly good. Only issue was our room door didn't slam shut you had to physically pull it, so on two occasions the door was left open (once overnight while we were asleep) and once while my boyfriend went out to the car, however I felt safe enough! Would definitely stay again!! Couple aged 22-24

Amazing Castle. Beautiful in every aspect. Grounds, views and rooms spectacular. No TVs anywhere! Staying in one of the castle rooms you have access to all areas of the castle and it's just so beautiful and relaxing. We got a bed, breakfast and dinner package. Worth every penny. Breakfast is served in the castle and was lovely. Dinner, also amazing, is served in the restaurant at the lodges which you are driven to and returned to the castle. Drinks available to residents of the castle as late as you like. Just ring the bell and a member of staff will come. Totally loved it. Will be back!
