Planning a romantic getaway this February? Relax, pamper yourselves and enjoy nature at this Irish estate

Make some time for just the two of you with an escape to this romantic estate, whether you simply want to chill out or get into nature.

Whether it’s busy schedules, juggling kids, or just the demands of everyday life, it can be hard to find time to spend quality one-on-one time with your partner. Valentine’s Day is of course a time when we like to show our affection for our loved ones, and it’s a great reminder to carve out time to spend together.

What better way to do this than to plan a trip away together? It will give you the opportunity to reconnect, doing the things you love together.

romantic getaway Castle Leslie

Castle Leslie Estate in Co Monaghan is an utterly romantic choice for a couples’ getaway, nestled in 1,000 acres of gorgeous Irish countryside, dotted with ancient woodlands and glittering lakes.

The beautiful Castle itself offers a feeling of luxury and serenity, so you can completely relax. Each of the 21 unique bedrooms has been designed without televisions, radios, or minibars for uninterrupted calm, and the sumptuous interiors provide a real haven.

The Lodge offers a completely different experience to that of the castle. Complete with 50 rooms – each of which remain true to the building’s original structure – and buzzing with activity, there is plenty to keep yourself occupied at the boutique, country house style Lodge.

For those that want more privacy, The Old Stable Mews offers all the luxuries of a hotel stay in a two-bedroom mews accommodation set within a picturesque cut-stone courtyard in a quiet corner of the Estate.

If you’re wondering what you’ll do on your stay, there are plenty of options. For outdoorsy types, pike fishing and walking trails are on offer, or you can spend some time on horseback at the equestrian centre.

Couples that like to get competitive will enjoy archery and clay target shooting, and of course if pampering is top of your list, then head to The Victorian Treatment Rooms for a spa experience. It has seven treatment rooms, an outdoor Hot Tub, Sauna and Relaxation Room to make sure you can completely unwind.

For something particularly romantic, you can also enjoy an enchanting horse-drawn carriage ride through the beautiful Castle Leslie Estate, with views of tree-lined avenues, bridleways and shimmering lakes.

As for food, you’ll be spoilt for choice, from picture-perfect Afternoon Tea to fine dining, as well as more casual meals and light lunches.

You don’t even have to wait until February 14 – Castle Leslie Estate is celebrating Valentines all month long!

February is their month of LOVE, so why not treat your someone special to a luxurious overnight stay? Romance your loved one with a one or two-night stay at The Lodge, including sublime accommodation, a full Irish breakfast and Table d’Hote dinner in the award-winning Snaffles Restaurant or treat them to an exquisite stay at The Castle.

The Enchanting One-Night Castle Escape package includes sublime accommodation in either a Heritage or Master bedroom, a delicious full Irish breakfast with a glass of bubbly and a sumptuous Table D’Hote dinner. And that’s not all… enjoy a bottle of bubbly and chocolates in your room on arrival.  Click here to view their wide array of offers and make a booking.
