Set on 1,000 acres of breathtaking Irish countryside, Castle Leslie Estate is a feast for the eyes -  dotted with ancient woodland and glittering lakes. It’s one of the last great Irish Castle estates still in the hands of its founding family and since the 1660s, the estate has  welcomed everyone from politicians to poets, ambassadors to world renowned celebrities… and you could be next! 

Situated in Glaslough, County Monaghan, the Estate is located just 80 minutes from Dublin and 60 minutes from Belfast. Over the past two decades, Castle Leslie Estate has lovingly been restored to its original glory and boasts a variety of accommodation, dining options and a diverse range of on and off-site activities.
