Castle Information

On arrival at Bellingham Castle, you are instantly transported back in time. The grand entrance to the castle is via a beautiful stone tower and gate lodge - built by Sir Henry Bellingham in 1880 - and a long avenue flanked by tall broadleafs.

The magnificent castle sits just above the sparkling River Glyde. Steps lead to the water’s edge and to a beautiful weir with footbridges and walkways. A millrace diverted from the river forms a long, wooded island with a splendid weeping willow hanging over the weir. Sweeping lawns wrap around the castle and have been landscaped with herbaceous borders, cherry blossom trees and stud railing.

The wonderful ivy-clad castle is full of authentic character and provides superb accommodation and banqueting facilities. It enjoys a distinguished reputation as an exquisite venue for Irish weddings and events.
