Stayed 07-08 March 2013. All the staff very very friendly, helpful and accomodating, and SPECIAL thanks to the chef - Stephen - who prepared gluten free stuffing for my meal at very short notice. The public areas of the hotel, entrance hall, bar and restaurant are well decorated and comfortable, however the bedroom we stayed in ( #7) was plain, dull and boring, in contrast to the rest of the hotel - a little effort in improving the decor would help. Outside there is the substantial Belleek Wood with lots of walks and trails, and it is also a short walk ( 1 mile) to the centre of the town. A good hotel for a relaxing weekend - you won't be disappointed by the food and service.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Belleek Castle....... an iconic Irish Country House, restaurant (AA 2 Rosettes), hotel and spectacular wedding venue…Belleek is unpretentious, cosy and friendly, rich in decor and antiquities, with open log fires to warm your steps back through this cultural adventure.Enjoy a contemporary dinner, with generous portions, in our unique light panelled dining room. We have developed a new food philosophy. Our spirit is to search for more “Depth of Flavour”, exercising both classic and imaginative cooking techniques. We use seasonal ingredients and produce, selected from the land, sea and air of Mayo, and combine these with the traditions of the Castle.However, our signature dish is a Castle classic, the "Drunken Bullock", a filet steak flambéed at the table and served flaming from a sword, adding theatre to succulent steak. Hand made oak tables, eclectic romantic music, lit by candlelight, with charming attention and delicious food.“One of the most atmospheric and delightful dining experiences in Ireland”, Bill Gooch, Virginia Beach.Guests may enjoy a private viewing of the Castle museum by appointment. Belleek Castle hosts The Marshall Doran Collection, the finest collection of mediaeval armour and Jurassic fossils in Ireland. How many times have I heard? “Oh my God!” or “Oh Gosh!”Belleek Castle... Unique, intimate and magical. ... more less
