hotel near slade castle

Located in the picturesque fishing village of Slade on the Hook Peninsula in Co. Wexford (only 30 minutes drive away from Clayton Whites Hotel) this remarkably well-preserved castle was built by the Laffan family.  Of Anglo-Norman stock, the Laffans were among the first wave of colonists to arrive in Ireland after Richard de Clare’s (Strongbow) invasion of 1169/70. They quickly became established in Wexford and were ensconced at Slade since at least the 15th century. Holding the townland as tenants of the manor of Kilcloggan, their actual estate was relatively small, containing only  86 hectares of land (Colfer 2004, 157). This suggests that other sources of revenue, such as fishing and maritime trading, must have funded the construction of this elaborate dwelling.
