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!

Set in a beautiful castle, you are greeted with a smile, made feel very comfortable and brought to your table. The staff are extremely friendly, the menu just wonderful. Starters to die for and the signature dish, the drunken bullock just marvellous in both how it is served and how it tastes! A wonderful dining experience will definitely visit again.

Food was lovely, but interaction with staff left the lasting impression of a busy roadside diner. Pieces of cork in the wine and increasing the volume of the music after desert ( which we asked to be returned to normal level twice ) did not help. The quality of food would bring me back but nothong else.

Lovely food which was so well presented and served by friendly staff. My only criticism would be that I would have liked to be able to have one or two courses rather than three or five.

Had to book which wasnt a problem, and it was expensive however it was worth the money. Fantastic atmosphere, great decor and a highlight of our 2 week trip in Ireland.

Quite extraordinary place to have a dinner. This castle created a good customer experience by nice atmosphere, good service, delicious food. Experience was crowned by a beef flambeed in a sword!
