About This Project

This prestigious project consisted of the construction of a new 18 bed extension over 2 floors, renovation of existing bedrooms and upgrade of existing Electrical Infrastructure within the beautiful Castle Leslie Estate in County Monaghan.

Castle Leslie is nestled on 1,000 acres of undulating Irish countryside, dotted with ancient woodland and glittering lakes.  It is one of the last great Irish Castle estates still in the hands of its founding family.  Castle Leslie Estate is now truly one of the finest luxury estates in Ireland.  MDE are proud to have contributed to the significant investment and major restoration programme.
