What our guests
have said about Belle Isle

Our Trip Advisor ratings (July 2016)

"The bill was worth every penny, Belle Isle is extremely good value. The new bedrooms are to a high international standard. The setting, the grounds, and the beauty of the place you can’t dispute. For Chinese and Indian guests to visit this was an experience they will remember not the many 5 star hotels they stay in every year. The house copes well with 10-15 guests. The basics such as warmth, hot water, cleanliness were all 1st class. Above all you and your staff gave us a warm Ulster welcome without being over the top but at the same time contributing to the few days. Breakfasts and lunches you gauged right. The extras that we included, shooting, boat trip, music and Irish dancing made the event even more memorable. In a world of cameras the hundreds of pictures that they took show Belle Isle as it should be seen. All your guests will have much pleasure in the memory of the pictures."

Corporate event at Belle Isle Castle

"We had our wedding at Belle Isle Castle on 13th of December & had an absolutely amazing weekend. It was a small family Wedding (25 in total) and it couldn't have been more perfect. The location, accommodation, catering were all superb. You could not get this level of service or flexibility at a hotel, we had private use of the Castle for the entire weekend. My family is still talking about how magical the whole weekend was, highly recommended!"

Weddng ceremony at Belle Isle Castle

"We hired Belle Isle Castle in January for our daughter’s Wedding, it was absolutely fabulous and was the best Wedding party ever. The Castle was perfect, can’t wait for an occasion to go back. Brilliant! Great value for money and Andrea was so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and being able to take the dogs make it all so special!"

Breakfast in bed at Belle Isle Castle

"Returned from another lovely break at Belle Isle, our 3rd stay here in the last 6 months!…Lovely and relaxing and great walks with the dog. Probably even nicer in the Winter because the log fires certainly make it feel even more comfortable and welcoming…Great to have a dishwasher as well as flat screen TV which makes it easier with the 5 of us."
