Slane is the home of Mason Quartz and passing the castle on a regular basis encouraged our designers to look at the beautiful quarried limestone for inspiration. The exterior walls are constructed of roughly coursed limestone with finely dressed quoins. These cornerstones are both decorative and structural, since they differ in jointing, colour, texture and size from the masonry of the adjoining walls. For over two centuries the castle walls have been weathered by the Irish rain and this has created a unique colour and texture on the stonework.
Our Mason Quartz Castle Grey colour is created to imitate this colour and texture, particularly the leather finish version.
