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 wife and I ate dinner at the Belleek Castle restaurant during a short stay at the hotel. The food was absolutely divine - so well presented and so well cooked. It tasted wonderful.

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!

We first visited the restaurant in belleek castle to have our sampling menu before our wedding and the food, combined with everything else about the castle, left us reassured that we had found the right place for our wedding.
