We had our wedding in Bellingham Castle this July. We had the best experience organising our wedding in Bellingham Castle from beginning to end. We originally choose to have our wedding here as we had been at a friends wedding here two years earlier. We were completely blown away by the food and how

stunning the venue was, so that’s why we choose bellingham as our venue. The whole day ran so smoothly the drinks reception was beautiful. The older guests sat in the drawing room and mingled with the French doors opening out to the back and gardens. Our younger guests mingled on the patio where live music played. Many guests commented that the canapés were the best the have ever had. We had 200 guests at the wedding and they fitted perfectly in the ballroom. One of the main courses was a fillet steak. These are cooked to order to the liking of each guest which is unusual at a wedding. Our guests were delighted with the food and service. The staff at the castle really are top notch. Nothing is too much for them and they are always at the ready to look after guests. We cut our cake on the patio with sparklers while the band got ready. This was the idea of the venue and we thought it was brilliant as everyone brought their drinks out to the evening sunshine before heading in for dancing. The bedroom decor and the decor of the hotel in general really is beautiful. We could not recommend this venue more and the feedback from all our guests has been great.

From the moment we stepped in to Bellingham to view it we fell in love with it. The wedding coordinators are exceptional especially Ciara and Patrick who took care of us on the day. The service is second to none, the staff cannot do enough for you. The food is exquisite and the venue is stunning. We

We had our wedding here in July 2019. From the moment we arrived at the venue, we were gobsmacked by the stunning entrance and beautiful grounds. From there things only got better. The welcoming and friendly nature of every single staff member we met on site is something Bellingham should pride

themselves on. A special thank you to Ciara, Jack, John and Tomas also. Their attention to detail and efficient service left me stress free about the venue from when we booked it all in. We had an outdoor ceremony on an unbelievable hot Irish summers day, I cannot explain how beautiful it looked. It felt like we were in a fairytale movie, and this was the exact comparison repeated back to me by our guests. There are so many places around the grounds to take some unique and romantic wedding photos. The venue was ideal for all our guests, spanning different ages and lots of different nationalities, all just as impressed with this astonishing venue. The food was spectacular and every single dietary request was taken care of. We organised our wedding from Australia and had no issues with communicating with the venue for all requests. Thank you for hosting our very special day!

They made us feel so at ease and were so helpful with any requests I had.

The level of service you all provide to each and every guest is amazing and so many of ours passed comment on this. The food is second to none from the canapés on arrival, the beautiful dinner and the late night snacks!
The stunning grounds and ambiance inside the castle make for the most wonderful setting and we honestly cannot speak highly enough of this place. Can not wait to come back!

Each one of the staff was fantastic, from providing wet wipes to rub makeup off my husbands collar, to super glueing my shoe when the bow become dislodged! We have had so many compliments from all our guests about the food, the wine and the canapés. We are so glad we chose Bellingham as our wedding venue and would highly recommend it!!!!

Everyone is raving about the wedding. Our only disappointment is that its all over and we cannot do it all again! Future brides and grooms with their weddings booked are in for a very special day. We highly recommend Bellingham. Thank you so much again x

despite them having no doubt many weddings, we really felt like ours was the event of the month! Of course the food is amazing. All the guests were raving about their meals (fillet steak wow, rare, medium or well done) and the wine was constantly topped up. The breakfasts were delicious, I was told the eggs Benedict was the best one guest had ever tasted. We wish we could do it all every again. If you are considering Bellingham, then there is nothing to consider; book it, you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I had our wedding at Bellingham Castle in September of 2019, and it was one of the most incredible and memorable experiences of our lives! Everything about our event was five stars from start to finish. Despite planning our wedding from afar (California), the communication process

Read More

could not have been easier thanks to Ciara and the Bellingham staff. They would respond immediately to all of our email inquiries, and were always willing and ready to jump on the phone (or FaceTime call) to discuss details.

When our big day finally arrived, we were met with red-carpet, white-glove service by an incredibly warm and welcoming staff. Of course, the venue and grounds themselves were absolutely stunning - truly the quintessential picture of a beautiful castle setting in Ireland.

As our wedding day began to unfold, the staff were extremely helpful and communicative with the wedding party and guests alike. They kept us apprised of timing and gracefully guided our family and friends through the castle, from welcome drinks, to our ceremony, to our cocktail reception, and finally onto our dinner reception.

The dinner service was truly a Michelin-Star level experience. The food was absolutely incredible and the attentiveness of the staff to our guests' needs was truly above and beyond. Many of our guests said it was the best meal they've ever had at a wedding, and we agree!

The excellent service continued late into the night, as the staff was on hand to serve late-night bites to our guests in the Buttery Kitchen! They even had the late bar open until 4am for some of our braver guests, who simply had to soak up as much of the experience as they could!

When my husband and I reflect on our wedding at Bellingham Castle, our only regret is that we could only do it once! Given the chance to go back, we would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Thank you, Bellingham Castle, for giving us the experience of a lifetime!

both said we have never felt more relaxed at a wedding which says a lot.
The food was simply beautiful and our guests are still raving about the best beef they ever tasted.

The amazing grounds speak for themselves, rain or shine it is breathtaking. On behalf of Alan and I we would like to thank everyone involved in making our day so special. In particular Patrick who went out of his way to ensure our day ran smoothly, nothing was a problem.
We will be forever grateful for all his hard work and attention to detail.

I would recommend Bellingham Castle to anyone getting married.
The most perfect location and staff, we were totally at ease all day knowing that everything was being taken care of to the highest standard.
Our only complaint is we wish we could do it all again!

always met promptly.The venue is stunning and the food surpasses any wedding food i have had over the years at friends weddings. This was also relayed to us by all our guests. All staff on the day were extremely polite and attentive, also fed back to us by our guests. The clearing of the room for the band was seamless also and no guests were disturbed. Accommodation and breakfast the next morning was also 5 star and we were all cared for very well by all staff. I cannot recommend this venue enough and hopefully we will visit again in the future for a wedding. We had the best day and will have the best memories for years to come.

Ciara and all her team. Throughout our wedding planning all our queries, big and small were always responded to immediately, they did everything thing possible to respond to all our requests from guests with mobility issues to singing groomsmen, organising a mini dinner party for my nieces and nephews…no ask was too big. Storm Lorenzo was due to hit on the day of our wedding but bad weather didn’t make any difference to our day, we were met at the car with umbrellas and were made feel very special throughout the day. So many of our guests made a point of telling me how incredible the staff at Bellingham Castle were. I would recommend Bellingham Castle to anyone planning their wedding.

Bellingham, within minutes we were assured that this was a venue that has hosted dozens of weddings and weddings is what they do with such ease and expertise. They heard all our concerns and requests before and Ciara reassured us that any specific requests would be catered for.

My partner and I visited numerous wedding venues in Ireland and nowhere compared to castle Bellingham. The grounds are simply stunning and rival the best five star hotels in Ireland. No other castle venue in Ireland compares. We have attended weddings in Castle Bellingham before. The food is outstanding and it’s beef is known as the best in Ireland!

notch. They really treat you like you are the only wedding they are looking after as they give you so much attention. I remembered they called me in the lead up to the wedding, asking me if I had any questions, I did, I just was struggling to get the time to call them and every question I asked, they knew the answer of the top of their heads. They are really incredible. The food is exquisite and they offer great choices. Another thing about the venue is the number of rooms that you can escape to - the kitchen/pantry is one of my favourite rooms. They serve tea/ coffee and scones in here and it has a lovely homely feel about it. On the day itself, it was like they could read your mind, better than your partner! They were so helpful. I really can't rate them higher - I just hope that someday one of my friends will get married here so I can experience it all again!

My husband and I got married in Bellingham Castle on December 22nd, 2016. Since we both live in San Francisco, we were at first a little worried about planning a wedding remotely, but thankfully we had literally nothing to worry about, all thanks to Ciara! From our very first visit to the Castle, we

knew this was the venue for us. To be honest, the surroundings, quirks and hidden treasures of Bellingham are truly phenomenal, but what really tipped it for us was Ciara. She is just so genuine, kind and a true professional. We were most impressed with her efficiency, attention to detail, fabulous advice & recommendations and honesty -- no question, request or change was too much for her and we always had great banter in person, on the phone or across email. Everyone remarked on the beauty of the castle and the high caliber of each and every single friendly, welcoming employee. The service was first class, the food served at each part of our day was simply delicious, and in terms of presentation, it all really did look too good to eat! All of our friends and family commented how it was the best venue they had ever been to - the castle, the food, the staff, the rooms, the nooks and crannies (especially the buttery kitchen!), the grounds, the fabulous Irish wolf hounds, the peacocks...all absolutely wonderful. I could go on and on! Thank you to Ciara, Patrick and everyone at Bellingham Castle for the best experience & day of our lives!!!

We had our wedding reception at Bellingham Castle in April 2018. It is hands down the best wedding venue in the country. We have been to over 20 weddings in the last 3 years in all the popular venues in meath, dublin, kildare and other counties. And Bellingham beats them all on every count. The food

was simply delicious with very generous portions of canapés and dinner courses. Initially we worried about no tasting but when we asked around we were reassured by friends who had attended weddings there in the past that the food was great. And they were right! The setting and building itself is beautiful. With plenty of indoor and outdoor space no matter the weather. Lots of places for wedding photos. Theres plenty of accomodation options nearby and the night porter was very attentive making sure all our guests made it home to where they needed to go. Really what makes it all is the service. Any queries in the lead up to the wedding are answered promptly. And there is time allocated for meetings sooner to the date. On the day staff seemed to anticipate things whenever I needed them. I dont know how they did it! Every one was efficient, professional but also down to earth, friendly and welcoming. It created a wonderful atmosphere for the day. I can't praise them highly enough. Also nearly every guest I spoke to raved about the food and service, which is a marker how wonderful they are. And I'd love to go back again a wedding guest!

Clara, Jack and Patrick were the team which helped organise the day and made sure it went without a hitch. Each and every staff member played their part on the day, and literally nothing was a problem. Their professionalism shone through during a slight medical issue. We could not have asked for a

better venue. I think every guest has come back to me saying how great the venue, staff and food all were. Hooking up a laptop to ensure the guests seen Leinster play in the semi final of European rugby wasn't even a problem. Honestly couldn't recommend the place highly enough.

We had such a wonderful wedding day at Bellingham Castle. Everything was exactly as we'd hoped - the decoration of the room, the organisation on the day, the professionalism of the staff. The food was absolutely delicious too, and the whole day went off without a hitch. I wouldn't hesitate to

We got married in Bellingham Castle in August 2018 and we couldn’t have been happier with our day. The setting, the food and the castle itself are all out of this world but for us the thing that sets Bellingham Castle apart is the service, both on the day and in the lead up, which is second to

Bellingham Castle from day one outdid themselves! From the very beginning the staff were outstanding and instilled in me confidence and belief through their professionalism. Hand on heart I can say that there is truly no other wedding venue like them. Absolutely every one of the guests raved about

the venue, the food, the staff, the service. The list was endless! Each and every one of the guests were treated like royalty. Thank you so much to the wonderful team at Bellingham - Ciara, Jack, John et al. You made planning a wedding from Canada a breeze - thank you for answering all of my emails no matter what time of day or night it was! You are all exceptional and kudos to having top class staff. There was nothing we wanted or needed on the day. Honestly, if I or any of my bridal party even looked like we needed something you or your staff were right there beside us! The attention to detail and the care on the day and the day after was out of this world! We actually can't thank you enough - from the bottom of our heart though, thank you.

Huge thank you to Bellingham Castle for the most amazing day. Myself and Callum could not have hoped for it to go any better. The food was out of this world and every staff member was unbelievable. A special thank you to Ciara, Jack and Patrick, you have been so helpful over the past few months.

Bellingham Castle in our opinion is second to none as a wedding venue. Our entire wedding experience was so special thanks to the wonderful team at Bellingham. The grounds of the castle are immaculate with beautiful gardens and so many unique photo ops. The castle itself boasts beautiful decor, so

elegant yet homely. From the moment we arrived for our wedding reception, we did not have to think of one detail. Ciara, Patrick and the team at Bellingham took care of everything! Keeping all our guests entertained and content. The food was the best food we ever had! We had quite a few guests with dietary requirements who were blown away that their needs were taken care of without having to request a particular dish. The waiting staff in the dining room were incredibly attentive to each and every table. Excellent bar staff, and particularly the night staff were so helpful and again knew exactly what was happening throughout our day. Every member of staff are incredible! We had the most memorable day in the most spectacular venue!! Loved everything about Bellingham Castle!

Where do we start?
From the minute we stepped foot in Bellingham Castle on our first visit as a newly-engaged couple two years ago, to the day of our wedding, we were in love with the castle.
The staff were so friendly and welcoming and we just knew that this was the place we wanted more than

anything to host our wedding. Nothing was too big or too small of an ask of the staff in the run-up to the day; John, Ciara & Jack outdid themselves. They were so attentive to both ourselves and our guests on the day.
Honestly, people always say it is the best day of their lives but this truly was and the staff and venue certainly helped that. Our guests are still telling us it was the best wedding they had been to which again, was helped by the staff. We would only love to do it all again in a heartbeat. We can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us and we would highly recommend you to friends and family for future events.
Thank you, Jennifer & David Clegg

We had an absolutely amazing wedding at Bellingham castle. Ciara, Patrick and John will guide you along every step of the way and the other members of staff. Nothing was a problem to them. They respond to emails at lightening speed and have great suggestions.
As a bride, you want to have assurance

that you picked the right venue. I had heard nothing but positivity about the venue before I booked and now for me, I couldn’t fault it.
I felt like Royalty on the day in all the surroundings and the unreal service. The place itself is stunning; each room is tastefully decorated with antiques but in a fresh modern way not a cobweb or dusty relic in sight.
They had umbrellas at the ready for my awaiting guests. The canapes for the drinks reception were so appetising plenty of choice for everyone. Two waiters even came down to us at the river with tons of canapés while we were getting our photos. There's plenty of photo ops here, with one particularly iconic one by the River with the castle in the background.
For the meal itself, the staff are so well trained and the food was incredible-plenty for everyone. Feedback from the guests they thought the food and staff were unbelievable, they loved having the little kitchen in the castle to grab coffee/snack and just have a chat, they commented that the alcohol prices were very good and loved the two Irish wolfhounds that are gentle giants.
The next day, breakfast was delicious again. They serve tea and coffee in the drawing rooms before you leave which is a nice touch. My advice is go and see this place - you’ll be blown away!

Darren and I cannot express enough how grateful we are to you all for making our day one we will never forget. From Patrick showing us round the venue two years ago, to the day itself, we have never felt so welcomed and looked after.

Ciara, you are an absolute hero. From crawling behind me on

the floor passing up flowers, to looking after each and every one of our guests - they have all mentioned how amazing you are. You knew what we wanted before we even did.

Jack and the entire Bellingham team are an absolute credit to the business, so warm, friendly and attentive. The food was cooked to perfection and the service was first class.

Bellingham Castle is without doubt the best venue in Ireland and we wish we could do it all over again. Every minor detail did not go unnoticed - just superb!

Thank you so much,
Aisling & Darren White

To all the staff at Bellingham Castle,

It is difficult to summarise how incredible all of you were this weekend...but I'll try!

The stand-out points that set you above any other venue are:

1. The fact that you seated a surprise guest from Boston

2. My hot water bottle at the top table

Read More

3. The guests all commented on the quality of the food and the service, including pulling out chairs, temperature control and considering people with dietary requirements.

4. The friendly welcoming staff of all ages, this was particularly noticeable!

5. One guest stated the service was Michelin-esque

6. The late check-out

7. The tea and cake and take away cups on Sunday

8. The Prosecco toast

9. The Christmas decorations! I can't believe these were put up! The castle looked incredible! Thank you very very much for this. I think it added to the fun.

10. The surprise canapés that arrived down to the water during photographs.

11. The chips for the top table

12. That nothing was too much

13. That alcohol and food was flowing

Thank you for making our wedding day so so memorable. Ciara and Jack, you were both incredibly helpful throughout the preparations.

Finally, we wish all the staff the best over the coming year and look forward to one day returning.

Many thanks from a very happy bride and groom!

Maeve and Daragh

Dear Patrick, Ciara, John and Jack,

Niels and I just wanted to send you all an email to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything that you did for us, not only last Thursday but over the entire wedding planning period. Planning a wedding from abroad was not the handiest at times, but

Read More

you really went out of your way to help us and to make things easier for us at every turn.
We just had the best day of our lives last Thursday and the main foundation for that was Bellingham Castle and all of you. Everyone we speak to is just singing the praises of the staff who went above and beyond for everybody. The castle is stunning but it is the service and the staff that make a wedding at Bellingham so unforgettable.
Everyone was treated like royalty for the day and we are having a hard time adjusting to normal life again.
Thank you all so much, choosing Bellingham Castle was one of the easiest and the best decisions we made. We are now living in hope that we are able to attend a Bellingham wedding as guests some day in the future and are able to enjoy a wedding from the guests perspective!

Thank you all again and we will keep in touch!

Niels and Emma Elshof
