The Castle at Castle Leslie Estate
“Family-owned country estate with extensive leisure facilities” - AA Inspector
GLASLOUGH, COUNTY MONAGHAN
Our Inspector's view
With its authentic interiors and old-style hospitality, the Castle at Castle Leslie Estate exudes old world grandeur and offers complete respite from the world. The Castle is not a typical hotel experience – you won’t find televisions, radios, or minibars in the Castle bedrooms. However, we do offer all of our guests complimentary WiFi in all public areas and bedrooms in The Castle. The unique and dramatically different bedrooms are tranquil and calm – havens for sleeping and dreaming. The Castle is filled with beautiful furniture, antiques and heirlooms. It has twenty one original and uniquely decorated bedrooms and bathrooms. From romantic boudoirs designed with relaxation and privacy in mind to more flamboyant bedrooms decorated with rich deep colours, there’s a room and a view to suit every taste. Each bathroom is unique and features include the first plumbed bath in Ireland, a throne toilet and a complete bathroom hidden away in a doll’s house. Some baths are fabulously large, ideal for a romantic soak for two. There is no pressure to do anything except relax and indulge yourself. Log fires crackle in the hearths and there are several elegant rooms in which you can relax in privacy or in the company of friends. Breakfast is served until eleven in the dining room. You can enjoy Afternoon Tea in our stunning Pavilion with its panoramic views of the gardens and Glaslough Lake or relax in the magnificent Drawing Room with its grand piano and famous De La Robbia fireplace. All these features combine making Castle Leslie Estate one of the most sought after luxury escapes in Ireland.

About the area
Discover County Monaghan
County Monaghan was once part of the old kingdom of Ulster, but since the partition in 1922 it has been part of the Republic. It is a county of pleasant though unspectacular scenery, characterised by round drumlin hills, relics of the last ice age. The county is also known for the exquisite hand-made lace it exports all over the world, with examples in Buckingham Palace and the White House. The ‘little hills’ from which Monaghan takes its name, form a landscape of glacial drumlins, the low ‘basket of eggs’ topography caused by the passage of great ice sheets. Amid these countless ridges of boulder clay lie dozens of lakes, making this a popular county with anglers.
The small county town has a neat shopping street, a good local museum and the nearby Market House, which is a surprisingly elegant Georgian affair from 1792. Grander in scale is the enormous Gothic-revival Roman Catholic Cathedral of St Macartan, standing high on the east side of town. Notable people from Monaghan include poet and novelist Patrick Kavanagh (1904-1967), boxer Barry McGuigan, and comedy actor Ardal O’Hanlan, best known as Father Dougal in Father Ted.
