Huge open fires filled with peat found at night, four poster beds, a bar made from a Spanish galleon, and steaks served on swords, what more do you need?

Although the meal was very good, it wasn't exceptional and was a bit pricey. But the atmosphere more than made up for it. The bean ragout was a great choice for vegetarians and one friend had the Drunken Bullock which appeared held on a skewer by the server, doused with a whiskey (we presume) and set aflame. The presentation was... More

The bar area was rustic and had an enchanting, dim atmosphere. We were served our drinks there and our order was taken before we entered the dining area. The restaurant is said to have the best food in two counties, and did not disappoint!

Stumbled across this amazing hotel on a recent visit to Mayo. We had the taster menu and both agreed it was the best meal ever. The chef and his team obviously take pride in the food they present and the dining room staff are clearly respectful of that. Maya, the owner/manager is a warm and welcoming hostess, who makes you...

First night I had the fish and I was surprised that it blended well with the risotto which I normally would not order. And the starters (piglet pie and guinea fowl tart) were simply sublime. But I was not impressed with the hot pot and the desserts on both nights. The hot pot consisted more of carrots than meat. As... More

Unbeatable experience - All the Awards are definitely deserved - when you visit for dinner... the owners, the chef (Stephen) and staff ensure that it is your historic castle (overlooking your forest) for the visit & the feast is fit for a king & queen. The Moy salmon, the drunken (Mayo) bullock, the Atlantic Langoustine and Crab, the candle chandeliers... More

Fabulous restaurant where the staff are so friendly and attentive and the food was just amazing. Main course was sizeable which didn't leave room for dessert. Highly recommend!

Both of us had the drunken bullock and it was one of the best meals I have ever had, could not find fault with any part of our stay at Beleek Castle.
