Castle Leslie Estate - Ireland

Riding Programme

5 star rating   1 May 2019

Hylke (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) In one word: EXCELLENT! Beautiful rooms with view on the boxes, lovely and steady horses, beautiful lake and domain for hacking. I'm surely coming back! | Did meet my expectations, although I would have preferred more cross country but I understand they need to give jumping lessons to make a good assessment of the rider. Horses are lovely, kind and steady. They very well taken care of.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The rooms are very comfortable: both bath and shower - a big plus!, very large bed.
The breakfast was my favourite meal of the day, a lot of choice! I ate dinner at Connors bar every night, it was missing a pasta on the menu (but that is just splitting hairs).
Service could be very slow at time, probably due to very young and somewhat uneducated staff but I have time.
