Its been a while since we were in Belleek Castle but its a place we thoroughly enjoy when we do go there? Very different place, with coats of Armour, loads of candles and very old style fixtures & fittings. 7 course dinner is fantastic, especially the Drunken Bullock! Worth it just for that alone. I won't say anymore, other than... More

Never having been to the hotel before, I found it to be a bit run down, & a little shabby. Dinner was expensive & unmemorable, & service was a bit slow. To add to that, the restaurant was cold,...

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!
