Castle Leslie Estate Scoops The Award For Ireland’s Favourite Place to Stay.

CASTLE LESLIE ESTATE once again was a winner at the 2017 Gold Medal Awards held in association with Hotel & Catering Review magazine. The stunning Monaghan estate triumphed at the 29th Annual Gold Medal Awards, winning the hotly-contested Gold Medal People’s Choice Award for Ireland’s Favourite Place to Stay.

Run by leading hospitality industry magazine, Hotel & Catering Review, and judged by an independent jury of experienced hospitality practitioners, the Gold Medal Awards are widely regarded as the most prestigious and coveted awards in the business. A total of 31 category awards were presented at this year’s gala ceremony in the Lyrath Estate Hotel, Kilkenny on 26th September, which was attended by over 400 leading hoteliers, restaurateurs and caterers from across Ireland.

Running for 29 years, the Gold Medal Awards are intensely competitive, drawing entries from hundreds of hotel, restaurant, guesthouse, club, spa and catering businesses every year. Each entrant is rigorously assessed for this category by the public and members of the Gold Medal Awards Jury.

On accepting the award, Castle Leslie Estate General Manager Brian Baldwin said:

“To receive this award and the recognition amongst the best hotels on the island of Ireland and the public is just wonderful. Thank you!”
