Castle Leslie - located in Monaghan - bagged third place, with celebrity fans including Louis Walsh. The Kiltimagh-born judge likes the hotel so much that he even took his X Factor acts to the secluded, yet beautiful estate during the judges' houses stage of the show, alongside Westlife star Shane Filan.

Tankardstown House in Meath also made the top 12, and it’s no surprise that the opulent 18th-century manor house ranked so high, with it being the place where Munster rugby player Jean Kleyn and his wife Aisling tied the knot in 2021.
