Dubbed as Europe’s Most Romantic Hotel, this secluded wedding castle in Monaghan is the venue for you if you want a luxurious ambiance for your intimate destination wedding in Ireland.
Castle Leslie is a 1000-acre estate with three charming lakes, its own family church, an equestrian center, and an evergreen landscape. It became most popular in 2002 when Paul McCartney and Heather Mills got married in its religious sanctuary called the St Salvator's Church, followed by a banquet for 300 along the castle grounds.
Castle Leslie is just an hour and 20 minutes from Dublin and an hour from Belfast. It is situated adjacent to the Glaslough village and is dotted with a park land, woodlands, and streams.
If you’re having an elopement for two in Ireland or a small wedding with up to 20 guests, choose any spot along the garden or in the parkland where you can hold a symbolic wedding ceremony. If you prefer a religious and legally-binding wedding, say your vows at the St. Salvator's Church which is also inside the estate.
After the ceremony, have your photos taken along the Dream Lake that features an artificial island. Your photographer can also take you to the forest, the parkland, the gardens, or in front of the main castle for a glorious photo shoot.
Enjoy an intimate dinner with your friends and family in one of the venue’s function rooms. Extend the celebration to the venue’s exclusive bar inside. Castle Leslie offers in-house catering so you won’t need to worry about anything.
For an indoor and weather-proof ceremony, the main building is available for you. Its function room inside can accommodate up to 100 guests while the Castle Pavilion can seat up to 180 guests. A marquee can also be set up for both the ceremony and the reception.
Castle Leslie has over 100 rooms in total where you and your guests can stay for the night. The main castle has 20 individually designed rooms with no radios or televisions for a genuine vacation experience. The fully restored Old Stable Mews has more rooms, offering a more homey ambiance. The third building called The Lodge has 29 bedrooms in total which are also available for your stay here.
