Slane Castle, set in the middle of a 1,500 acre estate in the heart of the Boyne Valley, lies only twenty-five minutes from Dublin Airport.

Slane Castle is the residence of one of Ireland’s most famous aristocrats, Henry Conyngham, Earl of Mount Charles. Slane Castle is set on the grounds of a 1,500 acre estate through which flows the River Boyne, a few kilometres upstream from the site of the Battle of the Boyne.

Slane Castle prides itself on the services that it offers to visitors to the Boyne Valley. The staff are one of the estate's greatest assets - with historical Tour Guides available for tours over the summer season.
