Our Superior room at the Lodge, Castle Leslie was beautiful; seating, desk, dressing table, a bathroom with a lovely roll bath and a large wet-room type shower. Also a wonderful large balcony with the best view of the stables, as requested. Even we overlooked the stables from a level above, throughout stay all that we were aware of was a warm oaty and pleasant horse/leather smell. The stables were amazingly clean!
Tasty cooked breakfast buffet, though we didn't have time to wait for an order of eggs benedict which took too long. My 2 hr horse ride was magnificent and tailored to my requirements due to a pre-arrival questionnaire.
We booked kayaking on lake that afternoon - Dave was a wonderful instructor (our first time!) Lake to ourselves and felt free when Dave encouraged us to choose our own route. Dave also took excellent photos which he emailed to us straight away. Enjoyed our complimentary hot whiskey in the Castle drawing room afterwards!
We not only shocked ourselves by how much activity we had achieved in one day. Chatting to the passing Housekeeper - she arrived 1 minute later with a new box of Radox (muscle soak!) including a quick relax in the outdoor hot-tub - it worked!!
Our six course meal was delicious! Choice and standard was superb. (And the gin promotion was spot on!)
Breakfast smoked salmon and scrambled eggs made up for missing the Benedict previously.
Staff at the spa were so caring, they make you feel relaxed before you even book! I loved my seaweed bath - my muscles still needed it!
Congratulations to every individual member of staff at Castle Leslie because it was clear that they are the root of the whole experience. Throughout, all of the staff at Castle Leslie were outstanding in their professionalism and friendliness.
We'll be back! Again and again! B&I

Room Tip: We booked a Superior room with balcony overlooking stables. We weren't disappointed. Stables were exceptionally clean and quiet after late evening. But lovely to hear the odd neigh when balcony door was open!

A genuine country house and estate set in beautiful grounds in the north of County Monaghan. The Castle was booked out so we stayed in The Lodge instead (a converted Victorian building). The Lodge has about 20 very comfortable bedrooms, a spa, an excellent restaurant and a bar. The stables are next door. There are plenty of walks around the 1000 acre estate too, some with stunning views of the lake.

Afternoon Tea in the Castle is a treat.

Room Tip: Staying in The Castle is more expensive but is a more authenttic experience. However The Lodge is a very comfortable alternative.

Just back from a very relaxing stay in the Stable Mews with 3 friends. The accomodation was excellent, everything you could ask for. We were there on a girls getaway, and the amount of goodies that were in the fridge was more than we expected. Plenty beer and wine, and the pizzas were ample.There was also enough breakfast items for 2 mornings. There were a couple of minor hiccups with our spa treatment, but as soon as the manageress was aware of these, she quickly rectified them. The mews is about 15 walk from the lodge, and we were able to make use of the estate car for travelling up and down, which was great.The evening meal on the Sat night in the main restaurant was superb.
Castle Leslie is such a lovely location,and very peaceful.

Room Tip: The stable mews are excellent accomodation for a group of 4, have 3 bathrooms, so no queuing for showers etc.

We spent 2 nights here for a weekend wedding and it was enchanting!! The grounds were perfectly groomed and so extensive one could get lost without crossing the property line!
Our room was spotless and spacious and the staff were friendly and helpful.
I actually enjoyed not really having a good internet connection as it let us disconnect just a bit more. It was a perfect getaway.

Just returned from a two night Getaway On Horseback Break, staying at the Lodge at Castle Leslie.

Our room was well appointed, spacious, spotlessly clean, with large very comfortable bed. Ensuite bathroom, with luxurious bath and large separate shower. Room had a balcony overlooking the stable yard.

First night we ate in Conor's Bar, the food was excellent, good choice and great value. Staff were friendly and efficient. Second night we dined in Snaffles Restaurant, this five course meal was included in the price of our break, and was excellent.

The highlight of our break was a two hour beginners hack around the 1000 acre estate. As a couple of novices, we were slightly apprehensive. The equestrian staff were friendly, professional and soon made us feel at ease and soon on board our horses Murray and Fernando. All the staff were helpful, patient and friendly, especially Mary Ann our instructor and we would thoroughly recommend this to horse lovers of all abilities, the facilities are excellent.

As there was no function booked at the Castle, we were able to explore the public areas. All very impressive and staff welcoming. As it was Halloween the rooms were decorated accordingly and this was very atmospheric, from the lit church candles in the bar area and the carved pumpkins etc. library, reading room also impressive, yet cosy for sitting and relaxing.

Would thoroughly recommend for a luxurious relaxing break, for horse lovers, for fabulous food, or just for pampering in the Victorian Treatment Rooms, there is something for everyone.

Room Tip: Room with balcony overlooking the stables, for horse lovers.
