The Print Room

This used to be known as the Pink Room due to the colour it was painted. It's a cosy room in winter and was often used by Sir John Betjeman, the Poet Laureate, whenever he visited the Castle.  It has marvelous views of the front of the Castle and outdoor landscape.  

Lady Louisa Connolly's famous 18th Century Print Room at Castletown, Co. Kildare inspired the décor style. It was created by local decorator Monica McNally using Lady Louisa's techniques.

There used to be an unpleasant triangular bedroom known as 'The Insulting Room', situated between the Chinese Room and the Print Room. Anyone disliked by the Leslie Family would be dumped there as a hint not to return. When restoring the Castle, Sammy Leslie divided the awful room in two to create two delightful bathrooms. The Print Room's bathroom includes a solid stone tub, a megalithic shower and a loo with a self-raising seat.
