“My team at Castle Leslie Estate are what makes this all happen. The hard work and commitment they give to each guest to make their experience a magical one is commendable.

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 Irish estate is led and managed by Sammy Leslie and protected by the Leslie Foundation. Sammy considers herself to be a guardian of the land, and has an overwhelming desire is to protect the Estate for future generations.

Located in Glaslough, County Monaghan, Castle Leslie Estate is just 80 minutes from Dublin and 60 minutes from Belfast. Following extensive restoration over the past three decades, Sammy and her team have transformed the Estate to its original glory. Today, this beautiful Irish estate boasts a variety of accommodation, dining options and a diverse range of pursuits and activities for its guests to enjoy!
