Things To Do
The Equestrian Centre
Castle Leslie Estate is Ireland's Ultimate Equestrian Playground where the Horse is King. Located behind the Hunting Lodge, the centre is in the perfect place for adventure - Imagine over a thousand acres of rolling hills, parkland and lakes to explore on horseback. The Equestrian Centre caters for all levels of experience. Beginners can choose from a gentle hack or private lesson - or the complete first timers can try out the virtual horse before tackling the real thing. The more advanced rider can enjoy fast-paced exhilarating cross-country rides over the 300 new jumps. For something a little different, why not try side-saddle lessons with Lady Jane Alexander or carriage driving on the Estate.
