Welcome to Castle Leslie Estate

Castle Leslie Estate in County Monaghan is nestled on 1,000 acres of undulating Irish countryside, dotted with ancient woodland and glittering lakes. The estate is one of the last great Irish castle estates, still in the hands of its founding family. Since the 1660s, the distinguished and somewhat individual Leslie family have lived on the castle estate, welcoming everyone from politicians to poets, ambassadors to ufologists; all the time making their home into one of the finest luxury castle hotels Ireland has to offer.

"On-site equestrian centre, castle spa, cookery school...there is something for everyone at Castle Leslie. Wonderfully unique bedrooms, all named after family members, will take you to a bygone era. High-tech Castle Leslie definitely is not; highly eclectic, unhurried, deeply relaxing and atmospheric is certainly is! I would go back there in a heart beat!"

- Julie Bilton, Celtic Castles Director
