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 Ireland’s most famous aristocrat, 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. Our staff are one of our greatest assets. Our historical Tour Guides are available for historical tours over the summer season.

Whiskey Tasting Tour:
Guests will be met at the front steps of the Castle, where they will be introduced to their personal tour guide. They will have the chance to both visit the castle and enjoy a tutored tasting of a range of Irish Whiskeys including our very own Slane Castle Irish Whiskey. This well balanced whiskey is a unique blend of premium single malt and grain whiskeys carefully chosen by three generations of the Conyngham family.
We also provide whiskey tastings for groups above 12 people. 1 hour datation. There is a fee for the tour.
