The castle has been the family home of the Conyngham family since the 18th century.It holds the Slane Concert event within its grounds, with the Irish Independent claiming in 2004 that "Slane today is the kind of internationally recognised venue that can claim even Madonna's attention". Its sloping lawns form a natural amphitheatre.

  • New whiskey distillery being built and will be well worth a visit . Beautiful place.
  • Beautiful grounds to take a walk on. The coffee shop was average and the staff were a little slow on a not so busy day when I visited. But other than that a very pleasant experience.
  • August 25 2001- U2. Just utterly awesome. Great venue. Been 3 times. This was the best by a long way. The natural slopes keep the sound in and it's so picturesque. Hell of a walk to get to it especially on a hot day.
  • Great venue but even better for just a lovely walk, no one around to bother you
  • One of the best concert venues I've been to.
