Named in memoriam for the man whose unique vision and passion for heritage gave rise to its design, Conor’s Bar is an award-winning, rustic cellar bar located inside one of only 30 great Irish castle estates still fun by the original family.
With plush leather chairs, antique wooden tables, original wood-planked floors, and cozy hidden alcoves, Conor’s Bar welcomes its guests into an unusual, eccentric, and charming maze of period rooms. It offers, as well, a variety of menu choices from soup starters to sandwiches to full-course meals, desserts, specialty coffees, and wines, and liquers.
As part of Castle Leslie, Conor’s Bar is dedicated to the old castle’s legacy of love for the equestrian...and thereby, the bar retains unique touches of decor ringing back to a time when travel on horseback was both a necessity and a luxury. An 1800’s bridle, set of reins, and bits draped inconspicuously on hooks and chairbacks remind guests of Leslie’s equestrian present and past, just as devoted developer, Conor, intended. It was...and is...Conor’s Bar. Unique, eccentric, delightful.
