As your guests enter the castle and immerse themselves in Castle Leslie’s tranquil surroundings, perfectly chilled champagne is being poured to enjoy in the Long Gallery or on the lawn. Soon, dinner is served in the Pavilion marquee where guests are escorted to by candlelight. Sumptuous dining is experienced while overlooking Glaslough Lake and much, much later when the dancing and revelry is nearing to a close, you and your guests retire to the Castle Drawing Room with its grand piano and famous De La Robbia fireplace for a relaxing night cap or two before you retire to your romantic boudoir!
