Castle Leslie Estate Wins a Condé Nast Johansens 2018 Award for Excellence


Castle Leslie Estate Wins a Condé Nast Johansens 2018 Award for Excellence

The Condé Nast Johansens 36th annual awards for excellence were held on Tuesday 7th November 2017 at The May Fair Hotel in London. Hundreds of top hotel industry professionals were in attendance and Castle Leslie Estate scooped the prestigious 2018 award for excellence in the category of Best for Weddings, Parties or Special Occasions.  Judges commented that:

“This is one of the last great Irish estates still owned by its founding family and stands majestically within the green beauty of the County Monaghan countryside featuring the tranquil waters of Glaslough Lake. A devastatingly handsome castle, it’s a palatial showpiece. As you would expect, warm Irish hospitality is on the agenda here and complete escapism is a guarantee. Weddings are given the full genteel treatment and exclusive use of the Castle.”

The Awards are based on responses from online voting, guest feedback and Local Expert reports drawn from the hotels featured in the most recent Guides together with those featured online. Winners of the Awards each received a framed certificate, a trophy kindly supplied by Sycal Business Gifts and a bottle of Champagne Taittinger. Condé Nast Johansens, from the publishers of Vogue, GQ, Condé Nast Traveller and Vanity Fair, is the premier reference guide for independent travellers. Condé Nast Johansens remains the most comprehensive illustrated reference to independently owned hotels inspected annually. With dedicated and highly trained Local Experts, almost 10 times as many properties have been assessed as appear online or in the Guides, in order to narrow the final selection down to the best selection of accommodation for independent travellers. With a readership of 5.5 million, the Guides’ distribution now totals 25,250 worldwide.
