Bellingham Castle Exclusive Hire

At Bellingham Castle, the welcome is warm, the facilities luxurious and the memories, eternal. Nestled in the medieval village of Castlebellingham in County Louth along Ireland’s Ancient East, Bellingham Castle is an elegant and spacious 17th Century authentic Irish Castle available for exclusive hire.

Set at the gateway to the Cooley mountains and on the banks of the glistening River Glyde, Bellingham Castle is the centrepiece of a 17-acre estate that includes a weir and man-made river island where you can create memories that last a lifetime. The opulent 17th Century Irish castle is bursting with rich history, splendour and old-world luxury.

Fully refurbished, yet retaining all of its character and charm, Bellingham Castle prides itself on elegance and sophistication, intimacy and cosiness, luxury and exclusivity – all just 50 minutes from both Dublin and Belfast.

We wanted to create something different at Bellingham Castle, an exquisite combination of a welcoming atmosphere and luxury castle experience. From dreamy and palatial bedrooms, to magnificent reception rooms and meticulously manicured gardens, we ensure each guest enjoys high-quality, bespoke service in an idyllic and inspirational location.

Our elegant period drawing rooms and library are the perfect locations for relaxation or for gathering with family or friends enjoying beverages from our bars, before dining in the grand ‘Bute Suite’. Outside, mature gardens and the stunning riverside setting with footbridges, provide the perfect backdrop for those perfect family photographs you have always dreamed of. Sweeping lawns wrap around the castle and have been landscaped with herbaceous borders, cherry blossom trees and stud railing.

Bellingham Castle offers 19 luxury en-suite castle bedrooms which are the epitome of luxury, to ensure you end your day in decadent comfort and style. Our bedrooms have been finished to the highest standards in luxury hotel accommodation, boasting all the modern amenities of a quality hotel but in a stunning 17th Century authentic Irish Castle. Depending on which room you stay in, you will have picturesque views of the River Glyde, our formal gardens, the fountain, or the nearby church steeples.

The award-winning Bellingham Castle is a family-owned and operated property. Patrick Corscadden and Ciara Carolan, along with their dedicated team, have made Bellingham Castle the leading exclusive hire venue in the north-east of Ireland since 2013.

From the moment you enter the castle estate via a spectacular stone tower and glide down our private tree-flanked driveway, you are instantly transported back in time.
