Tourist Map of Ulster's Border Counties

Map of popular tourist attractions for Castle Leslie Estate

Castle Leslie Estate is a four star luxury hotel beside the border in Monaghan. This location means visitors have easy routes to access a vast number of activities, sites and other attractions. Basically anywhere north of the middle of Ireland is fair game for a short trip from Glaslough.

Making a map with these sites, roads and inset towns was enormous fun. The map itself was only half the challenge, with the typesetting and listing of everything on the reverse being just as important.


Attractions were numbered and titled on the map side while detailed information on each venue was supplied on the reverse. The map folds down into a pocket size and is covered with a folding card cover which was glued on. The map was created in Illustrator and allowed for some changes which dropped entire counties be easily made. Phew.


In the days of GPS systems folding maps are getting less and less frequent, and more fun to do. The map is intended to be suitable for wayfinding, but primarily for information. It contains country borders, county boundaries, lakes, towns, major towns and cities, motorways, primary roads, heavily used secondary roads and clearly nunberd attarctions. While Castle Leslie has strict identity guidelines, this was a chance to do something different within those structures. Client: Castle Leslie Estate
