Castle Leslie Estate is one of the last great Irish estates still in the hands of its founding family. Located in Glaslough, Monaghan, and considered to be one of the finest Castle hotels Ireland has to offer.
Following extensive restoration over the past decade, the Estate has been all but transformed to its original glory. Here at Glenfort we were honoured to be part of this historical restoration.
We provided the full roof structure to the new open plan Snaffles restaurant. The Restaurant is light and spacious with our 14 dramatic hand crafted Douglas fir trusses creating the open spaces and soaring structures that characterize the room.
When designing the trusses the client wanted a structure that would blending effortlessly with a striking wall of contemporary glass yet not lose the gothic affect that would blend with the old Castle walls. Our designers came up with this raised head truss design with curved arches and struts combining the old with the new.
