Castle Leslie Estate Certified™ as a Great Place to Work!

Castle Leslie Estate is proud to announce that we have officially been Certified™ as a Great Place to Work, after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work® Institute Ireland. The accreditation process is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about the workplace experience.

After an extremely difficult few years for the hospitality industry, the estate is thrilled to have received this accolade – the first hotel in Ulster to do so in 2022!  The announcement follows an official assessment and employee survey carried out across the estate, with an audit that focused on the company’s Culture and People practices.

Brian Baldwin, CEO of Castle Leslie Estate says “I am extremely proud that Castle Leslie Estate has been certified as a Great Place To Work and that we are the first hotel in the province of Ulster to achieve this prestigious award in 2022. Our exceptional performance and attractive, employer-orientated workplace makes our organisation one of the best places to work in Ireland. Our team works tirelessly each and every day to deliver a warm and friendly service to our guests and, in return, we are committed to providing our employees with a great workplace where they are happy working and have pride in what they do.

About Castle Leslie Estate

Nestled on 1,000 acres of undulating Irish countryside, dotted with ancient woodlands and glittering lakes, Castle Leslie Estate is one of the last great Irish estates still in the hands of its founding family. The Leslie Family arrived in Ireland in the 16th Century and bought the Estate at that time. Today, this Irish estate is led and managed by Brian Baldwin and Sammy Leslie and governed by a Family Trust. The family considers itself to be guardians of the land, and their overwhelming desire is to protect the Estate for future generations.
