Liza & John 1st  September 2017

What can i say about Belleek Castle ..... where do I even begin! From the start to the very end we were looked after and spolied rotten! Our wedding was the best day of our lives and we would do it all again in a heartbeat. The staff was AMAZING, the food was OUT OF THIS WORLD and everything else was just as good. Special shoutout to Maya & Edward who helped us with everything and I really mean everything! Thank you all for making our dreams come true.

 

 



Rebecca Storer 26th August  *****

We got married here in August this year, having booked 2 years before hand. Over the past 2 years everyone has been incredible. Maya assisted every step of the way which was incredible helpful as I was planning & cooordinating the wedding from the UK.                                                         

I cannot recommend the venue enough ( which has improved over the past 2 years and continue to do so), the food which is so amazing (our guests couldnt get over the qaulity AND quantity! We cannot thank Stephen & his wife enough!) and the staff who feel like a family but also a very oiled machine, all of which led to the most incredible days of our lives.!!

Thank you all we are eternally grateful

Thank you so much for your help with Shaina & Santis wedding. We were very pleased with the day & night. several people said Shaina was a princess in her fairy tale castle, others said it was the best wedding they ever went to. The place just was magical...everything just came into place perfectly. And oh the food was scumptious  Im coming back for dinner next we are in Ireland.. 


Kathleen Anguera   17th June 2017  (Grooms parents)

We just had our son's wedding at Belleek Castle. It was spectacular. The staff was so helpful and pleasant, the stable transformed into an enchanting chapel, the food was the best we have ever had ( People were amazed over the lamb), and the whole thing ran like a well-oiled machine. Everyone had so much fun. Before the wedding our guests loved walking the castle's dog through the paths on the river. Our wedding went from 2:30pm 2:30am...That would not happen in the US, especially with the level of service we had! Thanks to all at Belleek Castle who made this possible! You helped to create a wonderful memory for many!

Lynn & Phil Brennan 17th February 2017 

We decided to have our wedding at Belleek after we had stayed at the Castle the previous year. The Hospitality we received coupled with the outstanding meal on that night meant that once we decided to walk down the aisle we both instinctively knew that aisle would be Belleek. Our wedding at Belleek Castle was everything we wanted it to be and more. The level of professionalism from Maya and her team is second to none. Maya expertise and enthusiasm for her job really made us feel confident that the day would run smoothly which it definitely did. Stephen the head chef at Belleek is amazing!We have heard from our guests that they thought it was not only the best food they ever had at a wedding but some even said it was the best food they have ever had. We also have to mention the best barman in the business, Ciaran is just fantastic at his job, you feel so welcome in the bar and he always has a story ot two or three:)  All in all we couldnt fault Belleek its a wondeful venue made perfect by a dedicated and professional group of people. We cant wait to make another trip up there

My son's wedding was at Belleek and was fantastic!
The castle and grounds were what I always imagined a manor house in Ireland should be and met all our expectations. We occupied all of the rooms and every room was very comfortable and well appointed. The food was gourmet & excellent.


Lorraine Reynolds  

What a beautiful place much more than we were expecting attended a family wedding very pleasantly surprised with the whole experience from start to finish. 


Beautiful Castle in the Irish Countryside

We came over for a wedding and stayed here for two nights, I definitely felt it was worth the price. Don't go in expecting a modern room - the charm of this place is that they have kept some of it authentic. Comfy beds and updated bathrooms in rooms. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They make a mean Irish breakfast and the food we had both nights was outstanding. Really enjoyed the history of this building and walking the grounds was beautiful. The basement and back bar are constructed from the remains of a wrecked vessels including a Spanish war ship, really awesome.

Fairytale wedding. 


Bebe

We had a fantastic time at our friends wedding, this place is magnificent. There is history behind it that you can experience in every room and it is beautifully presented from candle chandeliers to swan sinks in ladies toilets. Details are impeccable. staff is very attentive, the manager/barman/host was the warmest. I enjoyed the service very much. Overall an exceptional experience, incredibly well kept gardens and general surroundings are so peaceful which is why Belleek castle is Knocks wedding hot spot. It takes your breath away.Stayed October 2016


Ciarán & Laura

Jody:

“We had our rehearsal dinner, our reception and day after dinner at Belleek Castle. My husband's family all came over from Dublin and my family came from America. Other guests of ours were from Bermuda, England, Malta, Scotland, Germany ... all over the place! The first thing that impressed us about Belleek Castle is that we had a guest list of under 100 and other castle venues didn't want to know us with a list that small or if they did, we would have been relegated to a weekday wedding or we would have had to share the venue. Belleek Castle was happy to have our size of a wedding. All of our guests - every one of them - raved about the food, the castle itself, and the warm hospitality of the staff at Belleek. The staff could not do enough for us! Stephen, the Chef's, food was universally LOVED on every single day and night of our wedding weekend. He is an artist and a magician! Maya arranged the reception hall and the flowers which were beyond my wildest dreams and made sure everything ran so smoothly I never needed to worry about anything! I forgot to book a hairdresser so the wonderful Declan who is on wait staff there but also an experienced hairdresser, did my hair at the spur of the moment, giving up his day off to do it. They even accommodated having my dog! The way that everyone at Belleek Castle treated me, my fiancé and our families and friends made us all feel like we had a wedding in our home - which happened to be a beautiful, fun, special castle! We recently got our pictures from the wedding back and the grounds with the stone stairs and the forest, the grandeur of the Castle grounds and the winding road up to the front with the flags flying gave us some spectacular pictures. I have loved reliving the day! We had so much fun, we have beautiful memories and it really is all because of Belleek Castle. No way we could have the day we did in a ballroom at a hotel. No other venue could have come close to offering us the experience we had at Belleek Castle. When Stephen's daughters played music for us and our guests on the last night, I was so touched. I knew we had made friends and I know we will be back time and time again to relive our lovely memories for our wedding weekend!””


Wow!

Wow again!! What a fantastic experience!! First class food, excellent customer service and wonderful ambience. The building and grounds are fabulous with plenty of areas for wedding photography. Definitely one to top the list for another visit.

“My sisters wedding,Amazing venue”

Hi had the enjoyable experience of my sisters reception being held here and I have to say it was a truly enjoyable experience.
The castle was just amazing it was kept up to such a high standard, the rooms were lovely with 4 poster beds in them, the canapés and food was out of this world and the general feel to this wonderful place was so unique. 
The gardens and old stone walls were just amazing for photos and everyone was blown away by it.The breakfast was excellent and the hotel staff were really helpful, overall no negatives whatsoever.

Wow!! Conor proposed and we set about a venue... we had a few in mind First was Belleek Castle, for the luxury we said ( never thinking that we could afford it !) we met with Stephen and Maya who were SO down to earth and were just really with us working within our budget, we had 50 people at our civil ceremony and then maybe a total of 100ish for our afters. Went away on a high!!! Actually didnt look at another place, this was what we wanted... If you "new to be" married couples want- 1. The luxury of a stunning castle to yourselves and your party 2. OMG the best service of your guests 3. Planning EVERYTHING within your budget 4. Amazing food- we went for the Roasted Pig in the Banquet Hall, Yes....Banquet Hall 5. Amazing rooms at a great price 6. Quess what?? Our retreiver dog ( our baby) was welcomed, was with us the whole time and an amazing guy called Daniel escorted her to the stables to sleep with with the house dogs...doggy heaven hotel for her I couldnt have asked for a better wedding and party, and everyone had the bestest time!! XX Thanks to you all!! Ill send pics if you like.. Made our day and stay amazing 

 


 

Enda & Sean

When we started looking at wedding venues, we knew we did not want the usual hotel setting.  One of our close friends recommended Belleek Castle so we arranged an appointment to view the venue.  The day we arrived, there was a wedding taking place later that day.  We were amazed at the level of calmness in the venue among all the staff, we later found out that they were just used to handling weddings.  

Maya was the person we dealt with there.  She talked us through all options available and let us make up our own minds - there was no hard-sell, which we liked.  We arrived for the tasting a few months before the wedding and were blown away by the quality of the food but also the various flavours in each dish that all worked so well together.  It really was a tough decision choosing the dishes for our menu.  

Maya had recommended a local photographer Eamonn O Boyle who was familiar with the castle layout.  He took some amazing photos on the day but we also had a pre-wedding shoot a few weeks before the wedding in the castle.  This was great as we were able to get some pictures with our two dogs and even a few in the castle!  

We found all staff to be very professional and courteous in all our dealings.  Fast forward to the actual day and everything went so smooth but also so fast.  Maya had booked in some slots throughout the day for us to have some "us time" to let the magic of the big day set in.  Everyone told us the day would fly, we just didn't realise how fast.

Our numbers were higher than we thought they would be, but everyone was fitted in.  We had our spiritualist ceremony in the castle which meant the party could begin straight away.  We had sumptuous canapes for our guests to enjoy along with drinks reception and thankfully the sun shone on the day too which enabled them walk around the castle and take in the amazing views.  Our guests were blown away with the venue but also the food.  We cannot say enough good things about the chef Stephen.  He was so helpful in guiding us through the menu and every course on the day was amazing.    The food is still a topic of conversation when we meet guests from our wedding.  On the day, Maya and her team worked their magic and we cannot thank the team at Belleek Castle for everything they did.  The whole team made us feel "at home".  We were Kings of the castle for the day.  I would highly recommend and we cannot wait to go back, dine and stay.


Claire O'Rourke:

Absolutely fantastic weekend at my cousins wedding with the reception in such an incredible and stunningly beautiful castle. The staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us and the food was absolutely to die for. Didn't want the night to end, will definitely be back. 


Ciara:

“Myself and Paul want to thank Maya, Paul, Daniel, Stephen, Mary and all the fantastic staff of Belleek Castle from the bottom of our hearts for providing us with the most amazing wedding day we could have ever dreamt of. Maya was such an amazing support to us both, the care and attention she provided us with from the moment we met with her ensured us that our special day was in the very best of hands. The attention to detail was second to none and the little touches such as adding lavender to the place names was so beautiful as was our table plan and flower arrangements. I will never forget the moment we arrived to our drinks reception we were both blown away with how wonderful the reception hall looked it really was like a fairytale. I need to especially thank the chef Stephen, the food was just exceptional all our guests raved about their meals. We cannot recommend Belleek Castle highly enough to any couple who are looking for a truly unique and magical wedding venue, the character and charm of the castle is what we both fell in love with from day one and the grounds are just breathtaking for photographs. We returned to Belleek Castle for our first wedding anniversary and we were made feel as special as we were on our wedding day. My only wish would be that we could experience the day all over again, there is absolutely nothing I would have changed. Ciara & Paul” 


The most amazing venue in Ireland a truly outstanding and very rare castle

Trisha:

“We were married September 2013 in near by Lacken church and had our reception in Belleek. We had our wedding originally planned for December 2013 and had to change dates and greatly reduce the size of our wedding at relatively short notice. Maya and team were completely understanding and worked with us to facilitate everything. Our day went perfect from the unique and spectacular back drop of the Castle and grounds, cuisine food to the superb service for all 12 hours that our reception lasted! We cant speak highly enough of Daniel, Ciaran, Stephen, Paul, Maya and team. Our guests have said they have never tasted food of that quality at a wedding nor at such a unique but unpretentious location. Trish and I recommend Belleek to all potential couples. You will not be disappointed!!”


Sarah & Steve

There are no words to express the gratitude myself and my new husband Steve have towards Belleek Castle and its amazing staff. With every visit we were given VIP treatment. Nothing was a bother for them, which really helped ease our nerves coming to the big day. Along with the gorgeous surroundings and building itself, something I must point out is the work of Stephen the head chef and his team. We have never had food as delicious. This enhanced our experience as we are both very much foody people. If you are wanting the fairytale experience with royal treatment Belleek is the place to be. I just wish I could relive it over again. Thank you everyone involved. xx


Jojo:

We got married last September, Belleek Castle was fantastic from beginning to end. All the staff did such a wonderful job it could not be faulted. Maya, the manager was always contactable and extremely helpful. And the food, the food was amazing....... The chef, Stephen is truly an amazing chef!! Again, with such amazing staff, fabulous building itself and the grounds are beautiful, Belleek Castle was exactly what we wanted!


Michael & Heather 

My wife and I had our reception at this wonderful venue in October 2014. Belleek Castle and all their staff did everything to make our big day special. The food was amazing from the Canapés all the way though to the midnight feast. The beautiful open fires really added to the setting in the Castle. The stunning landscaped gardens as well as the wonderful backdrop of Belleek woods really does make for an unbelievable setting. All our family and guests had nothing but good things to say about the castle and all the staff. Thank you Daniel, Maya and all the staff.
