Norman's Heritage Room

This Heritage Room at Castle Leslie is quaint with picturesque views of the gardens and lake. The bed dates back to 1617 and once belonged to Clara Frewen, one of the Jerome sisters, from her home Brede Place in Sussex, lovingly restored by her in the late 1800s. Built in 1350, Brede Place once belonged to Sir Goddard Oxenbridge, a judge and court guard for King Henry VII. These luxurious settings make the room one of the best destinations for spa breaks Ireland has to offer.

Norman Leslie was killed in October 1914, whilst charging a German machine gun armed with only his prized sword presented to him by HRH Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught, a dear friend to Leonie Leslie and a regular visitor to Castle Leslie Estate in the early 1900s. The most sporting of four brothers, Norman was a crack shot, a great horseman, polo player and a top cadet at Sandhurst Military Academy, going on to serve with the Rifle Brigade.
