Calling all Brides & Grooms!! If you're looking for perfection, cosy elegance, charm, sophistication, beautiful surroundings and spectacular venue, total professionalism, value for money and the most amazing food and service ever then look no further than Bellingham Castle! This place ...just WOW in every sense! We could use every positive adjective in the dictionary to describe how wonderful and beautiful Bellingham is. We had our wedding reception here on 10th March 2018 and the food was simply divine and more, impeccable service from the entire team and a seamless transition from dinner to dancing! Our guests are still talking about the food, service, staff and venue...and so are we! On behalf of everyone we want to thank all the staff involved in making our day so special and memorable, huge compliments to the chef; and the waiting staff were not only professional but so friendly and obliging and really put our guests at ease. Particular and personal thanks to Jack and Ciara.....we couldn't have had a more perfect day thanks to you. Ciara, you are an absolute star and you make Bellingham the success it is!! Thank you for everything!! Joanne & Ciaran aka Mr & Mrs Taggart!

We got married on the 26th April in Bellingham Castle and it really was the best day of our lives. We planned our wedding from abroad and Patrick, Ciara, John and Jack were just fantastic in helping us with all of the preparations; they made everything so easy for us. On the day itself we were blown away with how smoothly everything ran and how well our guests were treated. The castle in itself is stunning and the grounds are beautiful but it is the staff who make a wedding at Bellingham Castle so unforgettable. We were all treated like royalty from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Thank you to all of the staff for a day that we will never forget!

We got married in Castle Bellingham in May 2018.

It was the most amazing day of our lives. Words cannot describe what an extraordinary place this is. John Hayden, Ciara and all your incredible staff - you are an absolute credit to your profession.

We booked this venue in 2016 - and from the minute we entered, John was fantastic. Since that day he has bent over backwards to make the day the most special of our lives.

The place is spotless. The lawns are perfect. The rooms are what you can only expect from a 5-star resort. The canapé's are exquisite - beautiful, original, generous, fresh food.

The dinner was out of this world. We went with the seafood platter, the soup, the Champagne sorbet (highly recommend), sea bass and fillet steak (the finest and most generous cut I have ever received, cooked just the way you want it), and the chocolate fondant was just divine. At one stage, I was talking to a friend of mine at a different table - she dropped a fork - and within 10 seconds, without asking, she had a clean one given to her by an amazing staff member (also called John). That's the level of care and attention this venue offers.

Organising a big wedding is stressful. But rest assured, if you book venue as your wedding, you will have the most amazing day you can imagine. I never imagined Castle Bellingham could have been as fantastic as it was. I never believed that 95% of reviewers could give it 5 stars. But I would give it 10 stars if I could.

You should all be so proud of yourselves up there. You all do an extraordinary job. And we will be forever grateful.


Room Tip: Every room is immaculate - clean, generously -sized, beautiful.

We travelled from the US for a friend's wedding and we were blown away by the venue, the food, Rí the Irish Wolfhound, and above all the staff and management who made us feel so welcome and attended to. Did I mention we were just wedding guests?
