We had a lovely 2 night stay - myself, my 3 year old son, my mother and our 1 year old cockapoo !We had a brilliant time, the location and grounds are beautiful. Gardens so well kept.Lots of areas to walk, explore, play and exercise doggie.Belle Isle was quiet and peaceful which suited us well for the trip ! If anything our energetic pup and chatty 3 year old may have disturbed the peace at times. Everyone was friendly, kind and helpful.The only downfall is the lack of the bistro. Somewhere to grab a coffee and bite to eat would have made the trip without fault.The house was clean, tidy and spacious. Kitchen well stocked with all the equipment you would need. My suggestions to improve would be additional 'basics' like a tea/coffee tray for after the journey down and before you get to the shops. Other than that it was exactly as expected for self catering.Such a peaceful setting for the evenings and we didn't spend much time in the living room as we were tired after spending the days out and about. If I was returning for a cosy autumn/winter stay I would love to see more comfortable seating for an evening by the fire.Thank you to Belle Isle.

We had our wedding over the course of a weekend at belle isle estate. The estate is beautiful and the house and the cottage accommodation are perfect and very clean. Cherry, who is the manager is so helpful and extremely easy to work with. Would highly recommend for a special occasion or just a trip away!

Lovely apartments in a tranquil setting.

We hired the castle and one of the courtyard cottages for our wedding and an anniversary party. Couldn’t recommend it more highly, everyone had an absolutely amazing time. Emma was fantastic, from the planning stage through to helping on the big day. The recommended suppliers couldn’t have been better either which makes a world of difference. The whole thing was stress free and the activities were thoroughly enjoyed by all, with ages ranging from 1-80. Will definitely be back and will be recommending to friends looking for a place to hold an event somewhere special.

We attended Belle Isle Estate as part of a three day wedding. It is a quaint, beautiful property that was the perfect place to celebrate with friends and family. The entire staff were a pleasure to deal with and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and that things were just right. Cherry's presence and dedication in particular really helped make the event special.

We stayed in Oak no. 3 which was spacious and airy, very clean and well equipped. It was quiet and we enjoyed walks around the estate. It is a shame that there aren’t more places to eat nearby, most seem to close early in the week. Staff were very good and knowledgeable.

A fantastic stay in a beautiful location - I would throughly recommend this to anyone.

We stayed here with our family for 3 nights. Beautiful, clean well equipped accommodation in a stunning setting. Our little granddaughter loved the climbing frame and visiting the nearby cows and donkeys! We found the staff friendly and helpful. We would recommend this place and hope to return.

We really loved the cottage and it’s situation. Lovely walk up to and around the house.Convenient to Carrybridge pub and restaurant and just 15mins to Enniskillen.Just sorry the Bistro is no longer operating as we used it regularly on previous visits.

13 of us stayed for 5 nights in cottages Sycamore and Rowan and had a great time! Very friendly and efficient staff. Accommodation was bigger and better than expected and very clean and tidy. Kitchen was very well equipped, though as it is self catering, a fridge freezer would've been useful to store our food. The laundry was a good addition. Great wee park and football area for the kids, (which they loved), with seating and a fire pit for the adults. There were a few small maintenance issues which we mentioned to staff, and the wi-fi wasn't great, though I've seen on other reviews that this is to be addressed. An upgrade on the showers would be good too, with maybe more than one in a 3-bed cottage sleeping 6, the main bathroom in Sycamore just had a bath with a mixer shower head which wasn't really up to the job, the one in Rowan was much better. Despite the few minor issues, we had a lovely time and we would thoroughly recommend Belle Isle Castle as a great place for families to stay.

Lovely relaxing place with great accommodation stayed in one of the cottages which was spacious, well equipped and very peaceful, also great that it was dog friendly. Only down side was the bistro wasn’t open so no where on site to get food and they could do with some dog waste bins around the place. But we had a great stay and will be back here again

Beautiful property! Great place to relax, hold an event such as a wedding or family reunion, or explore Ireland! Loved visiting the castle and staying in a huge and comfortable 3-BR courtyard apartment with kitchen and living room. The kids adored the playground, fire pit outside, and visiting the donkeys. Staff is over the top fantastic.

A very peaceful and pleasant stay in Coach House 2. Belle Isle is situated in a fairly remote setting and whilst there are plenty of restaurants/pubs in the area few are close by. A car is therefore essential. The grounds are splendid and well tended (my Springer Spaniel was in seventh heaven), well done to the gardeners. The accommodation is ample, clean and well furnished. A gentle week away - who can object to that?

We had an extended family reunion in the Castle itself (with a few guests in the converted stables) and maybe we were lucky with the weather, but it was utterly idyllic. A stately home in lush grounds with gorgeous views of the local lakes, it's as exquisite on the inside as it is on the outside. Every room is stunning. One caveat though: it calls itself a hotel, but it's effectively a self-catering castle, and the only key they give you is the one to the front door. The bathrooms are amazing, yes, and there are linens and robes provided of course, but there's no coffee machines in the rooms, or bar, or concierge, any of the stuff you'd associate with a hotel. If you want a cup of tea, you go to the kitchen and make one - and sit down for a chat with all the other members of your party doing the same. if you are having a wedding there - and I can think of no finer venue - you'll have caterers, of course, which will help. The local servers arranged by the hotel staff are excellent, as is the food sourced locally (even if the salads are a bit heavy on the carbs.). Also, unsurprisingly, comms can be a bit ropey - don't count on high speed internet or even consistent cell coverage. The staff are lovely and eager to help - though they can be hard to contact at weekends. If she makes an appearance, don't mistake the Lady of the house for a member of staff, like we did...!

If you are looking for a wedding venue, you can stop looking. This is the right place. We rented the castle and some cottages for a week for our wedding, and it could not have been better! It was literally the perfect week.We first booked the castle, sight unseen, in 2018 for our wedding April 18, 2020. Then three weeks beforehand, the borders closed and everything went into lockdown. I read so many horror stories of people who lost all their deposits, but Belle Isle was so accommodating and understanding about everything. We ended up having to postpone twice before we settled on our final date: April 28, 2022. But when we got to the estate, even though no one wants to postpone their wedding mere weeks before it takes place, it was all worth the hassle and the wait.I don't have enough superlatives to commend the staff here. Cherry, who was our point person and day-of wedding coordinator, is just the best. I can't recommend her enough. She made everything run smoothly for us, and given that we had to plan everything from the United States, that assistance was invaluable. She's so sweet and thoughtful and makes everything much more manageable. I really don't know what we would have done without her. I didn't get to spend as much time working with Emma, but the time I did get to meet her, she was also incredibly sweet and thoughtful - in fact, she made a reel for Instagram and shared it with me since I was too busy on the day to look myself.The site itself is absolutely gorgeous. The photos online really don't do it justice. I'm not sure there is a good way for photos to capture the elegance of the rooms or the natural beauty of the estate. In fact, we are going to be in the UK for another wedding next summer, and my husband and I are planning to come back to Belle Isle afterward for at least a few days because we loved the island and the people so much.Because I live in Los Angeles and my and my husband's families live in Florida, Texas, Illinois, Indiana, Oregon, the UK, and Washington DC, it was going to be a destination wedding for most of the guests no matter what we did. And honestly, at Belle Isle Estate, the value you get for the price you pay is extraordinary. My guests didn't have to pay much more to attend than they'd have had to for coming to a Southern California wedding, and most of the increased amount was in airfare, not accommodations. As for the cost for us, the bride and groom, the venue fee was less than a typical venue in SoCal, and because all the vendors were less expensive as well, we ended up spending significantly less than the average cost of a wedding here in the States.All-in-all, it was the best week of my life, and much of that is thanks to the lovely people, rooms, and landscape at Belle Isle.

It is a beautiful place. The court yard made it easy to socialise, it was reasonably close to the river for swimming and paddle boarding and there was bbq's for us to use.The various apartments were clean, spacious and very pleasant. If I had any suggestions it would have been good to some condiments, olive oil etc. . . in the kitchens.Still a wondrtful place for my whole family to relax, catch up and enjoy ourselves and would recommend here to anyone.

Fabulous stay. CY2 Beech is very spacious & clean. You could fit 6 people (if allowed). Highly recommend for a family with kids, loved the play area being close & loved walking the dog along the trails. I would recommend a map inside the apt. to define the dog walks. A communal seating & BBQ area to enjoy the sunshine all day would make it v sociable.Please reopen the bistro or some form of sit down lunch/ dinner we would have loved to have had that experience.Google maps was best for the boat hire navigation. For off-peak season on the boat there’s not many restaurants along the river open outside of Fri-Sun (even though it was Easter). We found Carrybridge Hotel did good pub grub.I enjoyed meeting the Curly Pigs and learning about their important conservation work - perhaps a member of staff could do a free guided tour, to learn about all the animals.Handy location for Nat. Trust, Mable arch caves and Donegal. We’ll be back to explore. :-)

Rarely do we return somewhere three times- so that says it all! Immaculately clean accommodation and dog friendly too. The staff are so very friendly, well informed and helpful. This is an excellent location to explore the Fermanagh area and the setting is beautiful.

My husband & I have just returned from a three night stay at Belle Isle Castle we had the best time . We stayed in the Oak cottage along with our wee dog Rocco , the accommodation was very well equipped with just about everything you need. We especially loved the log burning stove it was so cosy in the chilly evenings . It is a perfect stay for pets & had lots of great walks around the estate although a bit muddy (bring welly boots ) The location is stunning with beautiful countryside & lovely views & is about 20 minutes drive from Enniskillen town . We will definitely be returning to this fantastic accommodation 👍🏻😁

The whole family had a ball thank you!

We had a wonderful 2 night stay in the Abercorn Wing of the Castle at Belle Isle to celebrate a special birthday. There were 8 adults in our family gathering with 3 small children.Everything was perfect - Warm, clean, lots of space and great kitchen facilities. We were able to dine at the large table in the library and relax in the drawing room with beautiful views of Lough Erne from all the rooms.The Abercorn wing was beautifully furnished with every comfort at our disposal including an ample supply of firewood for the large open fires.All five bedrooms had spacious en-suite facilities and the beds were extremely comfortable.We sincerely hope we will be able to make a return visit in the near future.
