Weddings - Private Parties - Corporate Events

Set on the banks of the glistening River Glyde, Bellingham Castle is an elegant and spacious 17th Century Irish castle bursting with rich history, splendour and old-world luxury. Located in Ireland’s north-east, less than one hour from Dublin and Belfast and only 2km from the M1 motorway, we are delighted to welcome you to our beautifully located authentic Irish Castle.

Sitting in the heart of the medieval village of Castlebellingham in County Louth and approached via a private, tree-flanked driveway, Bellingham Castle is the centrepiece of a stunning 17-acre estate that includes a weir and man-made river island with footbridges, mature trees and formal gardens.

Our formal drawing rooms, cosy library, bars and elegant Bute Suite are ideal for private weddings, civil partnerships and corporate events; while our bedrooms are rich in history, style and comfort. 


Bellingham Castle is the perfect destination for a romantic, personal and luxurious castle wedding and is also ideal for private functions, conferences and events.
