All the staff at Jack Fenn Courtyard Cafe at Belleek Castle would like to thank everyone for their support and custom since we opened in September 2017. We wish to inform you that the cafe is closed from the 25th of December but we are hoping to see you all back for our reopening on the 17th of January 2018. We have had a wonderful first few months in business and are looking forward to another wonderful year in 2018.
Jack Fenn's Courtyard Cafe at Belleek Castle will be open again from Wednesday 17th of January 2018. The cafe will be open Wednesday to Sunday, 11am - 5pm (Closed Monday & Tuesday). The cafe has an amazing brunch/lunch menu available with a wide range of sandwiches, wraps, salads, soups, sharing platters, boards of charcuterie and tasty homemade desserts. There is also a lovely range of wines hand picked to go with our food and a range of beers sourced from Reel Deel Craft Beers from Crossmolina, County Mayo. The cafe's unique blend of freshly ground coffee is sourced from BeanWest Roasters in Westport, County Mayo, Ireland and is perfect with a slice of cake. There is also a wide range of teas sourced from the Irish Tea Company in County Roscommon.
The food isn’t the only thing you’ll marvel at in Jack Fenn’s Courtyard Café – the setting also makes for a great experience. Situated in the old stable buildings adjacent to the Castle the cafe is an intimate but quirky space. The cafe has been given a modern design and much of the materials used in the construction of the cafe has been recycled from materials and old furniture from Belleek Castle which has been beautifully repurposed to create an environment that reflects both the history of the castle and the Wild Atlantic landscape in which we live.
We won’t give away the secret, but don’t forget to ask about the story behind the large table in the centre of the café! And of course there is the story of Jack Fenn the sailor & smuggler!
"There once was a sailor called Jack Fenn, who got himself into a tight spot!
Jack bought a passport from an Irishman called Marshall Doran and bought himself a castle!"
