We booked this as a last minute weekend break and boy were we delighted with this fantastic hotel. We arrived at night, it was lit up like a fairy princess castle, it looked stunning. It has been beautifully renovated with much love by a family. The food was sublime. If you go, get the drunken bullock, I had it both nights, was just super gorgeous. The staff are so friendly had helpful. The four poster bed in our room was so comfortable and I had to jump to get on it which I thought was hilarous. The open fire in the bar is so lovely to sit by and the grounds are wonderful to explore. Highly recommend it.

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...
