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!

My partner and I have been travelling around Ireland for the past few weeks and have stayed in many hotels - this place has by far exceeded all of them in terms of service and accommodation of our dietary requirements. As soon as we were sat for dinner we were presented with a pre-organised set of menu options for starter... More

Our stay at Belleek included dinner. Being the only guests at the castle, we were waited on hand and foot by the staff and even visited by the owner. Best of all was the exquisitely prepared meal. I had the braised beef and have never tasted better in my life! Well done Paul and team!

There were approximately fifty of us at the function and everyone I spoke to afterwards had only good things to say about their meals. The service was outstanding.
