Upcoming Equestrian Events & Programs at Castle Leslie in Ireland

September 12, 2017

The fall is a spectacular time to visit Ireland and with Castle Leslie hosting a variety of special equestrian events, it makes the season even more enticing.

Located in Glaslough, County Monaghan, just an 80 minutes drive from Dublin and 60 minutes from Belfast, this luxury equestrian getaway often hosts special British Horse Society training courses, dressage clinics and equestrian offerings for younger riders. We particularly like the concept of owning a pony for a week, so kids can get immersed in what it takes to care for a pony, including grooming, mucking out stalls, checking your pony for injuries and wellness and more.

Castle Leslie is not only a visually stunning and intersting place to stay, the property has a rich history. The Leslie Family arrived in Ireland in the 16th Century and brought the Castle at that time. Today, they run the estate as a castle hotel with family member Sammy Leslie, an equestrian, managing the estate, which is governed by a Family Trust.
