  • 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.
