Description: Belleek Castle is set in the heart of Belleek Woods. It is a cosy romantic hotel with plenty of character and award-winning restaurant. Afternoon tea is available daily from 12pm until 5pm. Tours also take place each day of the dungeons where you will get to see and hold Irelands largest private collection of armour and we also boast a collection of fossils - plus a few extra surprises!The Armada bar has been constructed from a spanish armada ship which makes it boast plenty of character and is admired by all who visit the castle. Our restaurant is cosy and romantic with an old world feel. We are proud to serve gourmet dishes without the gourmet price! Our head chef Stephen uses only the freshest local ingredients available to create masterpieces in the kichen.The castle is also an ideal wedding venue with several weddings held here every year since 1971. We strive to ensure that everyone has the most perfect day possible and where better to celebrate such an occasion than in a romantic castle.Belleek Castle is a home away from home and is well worth a visit - we hope to be welcoming you here soon!

Visiting a friend who lives near to Balleek Castle, I took advantage of their local knowledge and we booked here for an evening meal. So glad we did as this is a gem of an establishment. The first impressions are stately - coming up the wooded drive way to then be presented with the magnificent building. The sense of grandeur... More

Have the steak on a sword on the multiply course dish. Relaxing and friendly ambiance for a nice quiet night out with a loved one.

I went here for a wedding reception and it was the best food I have had. I cant eat gluten so was worried about what I could eat but the Head Chef Stephen prepared me my own gluten free canapes which were delicious. There were 4 courses for the meal, each one was delicious. The starter was rare breed pork... More

If you like a medieval slant or ghostly gothic but luxurious then this is it. Finishings are the real thing as is the whole package set in a beautiful wood beside a river. What more would you want?

Returning back to the UK from Ireland, I am moved to write about my wonderful and numerous dining experiences at Belleek Castle in Ballina. My family live locally and I was taken here as a small child many years ago. The place always made an impression on me - the wonderful setting, the dramatic interiors, the lush dining rooms. When...

We had dinner at The Belleek Castle Restaurant and it was a wonderful experience. We were taken into the lounge by the Head Waiter given menus and offered a drink. On his return the Head Waiter seemed to have all the time in the world to take us through the menus. There was a gourmet , a la Carte, vegetarian... More

Took a chance on a friends recommendation. After a lovely drive from Galway through some of the most wonderful scenery you can find on the planet we found ourselves gradually being drawn into the past as we navigated a lovely long tree lined avenue which opens out into rolling grassland around the castle. Very friendly staff whisked our bags away... More

We came here last weekend on the recommendation of a friend, and I was NOT disappointed. We had the eight course gourmet tasting menu, and every dish was fantastic, a real treat. It was a bit of a drive for us to come here but it was definitely worth it. The relaxed atmosphere and the exceptional staff further added to... More
