You've got to try the restaurant's signature dish

And they don't come much more signature than this! It is basically a filet steak skewered on a cutlass over which brandy or some other spirit is dripped that that the meat gets flambéed at your table. Great for a selfie or smartphone moment!

The historical tour of the castle was wonderful. The tour guide was very personable and knowledgeable. Really interesting and worth while doing.

Visited for my daughters birthday. Food was fabulous. My starter of quail and mushroom pie was really impressive. Wine list is well chosen and we had a great mature Bordeaux. Mains were all good. I had slow cooked beef which was very good and my wife had chicken which also very good. The vegetable stacks are particularly tasty and unique.... More

During a one week stay in mayo we decided to treat ourselves. Found the restaurant after doing the tour of the castle with Brendan which is well worth the visit on a rainy day! We chose the early bird meal option which was well worth the money. The wine selection is vast and very reasonably priced as well. Wished we... More

Have been here a few times and it never disappoints. If you are celebrating a special occasion be sure to come here for dinner. The service and the food cannot be faulted. It's not too expensive as we ate here on a Sunday for an amazing three course meal at only 30 euro pp. The cost of drink is quite... More

On approach to Belleek Castle a squirrel crossed our path and then ran up the nearest tree. My friends comment was that it was great to see life in the woods. We then parked up and went for a short walk in the woods which was beautiful. Then we went for dinner. Maya is not only beautiful and smart but... More

We were lucky enough to visit family living in Ireland and when they said they wanted to take me and my husband out to dinner at Belleek Castle I nearly jumped out of my chair! It looked lovey in the pictures online and whether we dined there or not I was already planning on going by to take a couple... More

I stayed at Mount Falcon with a group of guys and we went to Belleek one night for dinner. The set up is very nice and the drunken bullock was prepared very nicely and uniquely but for my dollar I think the food at Mount Falcon is better although the setting is not as interesting.

Absolutely no doubt that this venue is the jewel in Ballina's fine gourmet dining and visit crown! The grounds are steeped in history and breathtaking views of the River Moy and nearby woods, the castle itself is maintained to a high standard and retains all its authenticity. The owner is an amazing, quirky and genuinely friendly and knowledgable man and... More
