Glaslough Village Heritage Trail
Glaslough, Co. Monaghan
Free to visit
Dog friendly
Free car parking
Cloudy days
Take a walk through Glaslough Village and hear locals tell you the stories of the Leslie family and the village community and the way the two have been closely linked for over 350 years.

Starting beside the Famine Monument and finishing at Saint Salvator’s Church the trail follows a route of 2 kilometres, open for all to enjoy, around the village and into the Castle Leslie estate.

The trail reveals many stories of time past and present, telling us why railways were once the life of rural communities, how superstition once influenced burial practices and explaining Glaslough’s past role as a centre of agricultural innovation and market town. It also describes the differences between life upstairs and downstairs in a great house, and discusses some of the colourful characters who have stayed in Glaslough over the years.

This easy to follow trail through the village of Glaslough is part of Ireland’s Ancient East, a network of stories in the landscape stretching back 5,000 years.
