Outside, take a wander to discover sunken gardens, rippling lakes & tranquility. Nature at its most immediate.
Belle Isle Estate has been designated a Special Area of Conservation and the castle itself is a fantastic 17th Century Country House. The strong stone walls, huge solid wood doors and sculptural window surrounds are encased in a sea of ivy leaves and traditional planting. The sunken garden makes the perfect space for gatherings, impromptu or otherwise.
Beyond the castle a lake view beckons you further into the estate, through grassy banks and wild flowering meadows past rope swings swaying from mature trees. A formal walled garden tempts your eye but you glance back towards the castle and wonder what lies behind that imposing door.
Even the most brisk
Irish Autum morning
can warm your spirit.
So let’s venture indoors…

BELLE ISLE CASTLE HAS BEEN HOSTING EVENTS SINCE 1760, SO WE KNOW HOW TO TREAT A GUEST OR TWO.
The heart of any castle is the banqueting hall, and at Belle Isle Castle you will be welcomed into a large atmospheric room recently restored to its former glory. An open fire sits opposite huge floor-to-ceiling windows bathing the room in natural light. Above, a minstrel's gallery uses natural acoustics to flood the room with traditional music.
