Guys, Thank you for organising the event on the 15th of June. It was spectacular. The service was amazing and the food was really really good. I was really impressed with the organisation. Without a doubt Belleek is #1 in Ballina when it comes to service and good.

I enjoyed a wonderful friends wedding here. Food and service was very good. The castle feels wonderfully authentic and atmospheric. Would love to return again to enjoy an overnight stay next time.
