Castle Leslie Equestrian Escape

Castle Leslie Equestrian Escape
Monaghan Ireland

A secluded and private estate in Co. Monaghan, covering over 1,000 acres of undulating Irish countryside, dotted with ancient woodlands and glittering lakes.  This is the Castle Leslie Estate, one of only 30 great Irish castle estates still run by the original families. Since the 1660s, the distinguished and somewhat individual Leslie family have lived here, welcoming everyone from politicians to poets, ambassadors to ufologists.

Now it welcomes you with some of the most unusual and enchanting luxury accommodation in all of Ireland. Following a huge investment into it over the last decade, the beautiful Estate is waiting for you to discover it. There's something for everyone with a range of luxuries at the charming 4-star newly-renovated Hunting Lodge with its 30 bedrooms, cozy cellar bar, brasserie and Victoria Spa. You can also stay in one of the Heritage or Master Bedrooms of the Castle.
The jewel in the crown is the Castle itself which was recently completely renovated and is open for lodgings to our guests. Incredibly romantic, Castle Leslie is the most informal of Irish Castles and is also one of the most exclusive wedding venues of Ireland. There's so much to do while you're here, why not explore the countryside on horseback from our prominent Equestrian Center. But there's also plenty of space to relax too, especially at the Organic Spa. "At Castle Leslie, you will get a unique perception of time; its links with reality are tenuous indeed and thereby lies its enchantment." - Irish Tourist Board
The Castle Leslie Equestrian Center is the perfect location for a horse-riding holiday in Ireland. It is the perfect place for adventure and offers an idyllic setting for horse enthusiasts visiting Ireland. Imagine over a thousand acres of rolling hills, parkland and lakes to explore on horseback. Combine fun and thrilling cross-country riding with relaxing trail rides in the countryside and come home to luxury accommodations each day to unwind!
