Castle Leslie is a 20-bedroom castle, at the heart of a 1000-acre estate in Ireland, 80 minutes from Dublin and 60 minutes from Belfast.

Full of character and personality, Castle Leslie offers authentic original interiors and old-style hospitality; the ultimate Irish escape that boasts a variety of accommodation and activities to suit all tastes. Following significant investment and a major restoration programme spanning more than two decades, Castle Leslie is now open to the public and is waiting to be discovered by you...
