Christmas in the Castle

Have you ever dreamed of gathering all of your family members together under the same roof for Christmas?

Belle Isle Castle is the perfect ‘home from home’ to do just that! With its 13 luxuriously furnished bedrooms, selection of warm and welcoming drawing rooms, traditional kitchens, and grand dining hall, Belle Isle is the perfect place for Christmas family getaways this year. Spend quality time with your nearest and dearest over the festive period and enjoy your Christmas in the Castle.

Imagine the fuzzy feeling as you enter the festively decorated castle, with its Christmas trees, tinsel, mistletoe, and twinkling fairy lights. Play some Christmas carols in the background, as you begin your Christmas Eve preparation and the anticipation builds. The smell of mulled wine and mince pies waft through the wings as you await the arrival of your loved ones. Everyone can take their pick from either the Hamilton or Abercorn drawing rooms, to hang their stockings, relax by a crackling fire and reflect on the crazy year we have all had.

The Hamilton dining room is the ultimate setting for a Christmas feast! Two fully equipped kitchens ensure that the whole family can get involved in preparing the turkey, the ham, and all the trimmings. Everyone can enjoy the meal together, pulling Christmas crackers over the table and raising a toast. After pudding, wrap up warm and take a step outside to walk off any overindulgence – we have the most beautiful walkways and views of Upper Lough Erne on our 470-acre private island.

In case you were wondering, we also have plenty of room on the top of the tower for Santa’s reindeers to land! Can you picture the excitement of the children as they race down the grand staircase to find their presents neatly laid out under the Christmas tree?

Leave the stress of 2021 behind, relax and unwind with family in Belle Isle Castle… Just don’t forget to leave Rudolph a carrot!

Belle Isle Castle is an ideal setting for all winter celebrations – birthdays, anniversaries, hen parties, and corporate events!
