  • This is what I think of Belleek castle after my visit.... Fantastic ambiance! Delicious food. Great staff. I couldn't fault this wonderful castle, a great place to celebrate my birthday with hubby and friends. The food is top rate and not as expensive as you might think. A great place for an intimate meal or delightful to share with friends and family.
  • Lovely castle, grounds and hotel. We arrived early for the tour and we were asked if we would like a coffee while we wanted for our tour, it was delicious. Carol our tour guide had a wealth of knowledge and nothing was too much trouble. Well done Carol.
