Bellingham Castle Hotel Map PinCastlebellingham, Louth
Bellingham Castle is an exclusive and romantic castle wedding venue where you and your guests can enjoy a magical day in complete privacy. The relaxing surroundings, the friendly staff, the sumptuous Bute Suite, the nineteen luxury bedrooms, and fine food and wine will ensure that you have an unforgettable experience.

Description

In 1905, Bellingham Castle was the venue for the society wedding of the year when the 4th Marquis of Bute, John Crichton-Stuart, married Augusta, daughter of Sir Alan Bellingham.

The Marquis was then one of the wealthiest men in the British Isles and treated his bride and guests to a lavish celebration that attracted the world’s media attention.

Today, Bellingham Castle is still an exclusive-hire castle wedding venue where you and your guests can share in the history of Bellingham and enjoy a magical day in complete privacy.

Bellingham Castle offers a warm and inviting setting for the most magical day of your life.  Full of romance, luxury and charm, we pride ourselves on being one of the finest authentic castle wedding venues in Ireland. The castle is 45 minutes from Dublin and an hour from Belfast via the M1.

Our team understand how important every detail of your special day is and would be delighted to help you organise a memorable, bespoke wedding. Whether imposing yet intimate, uniquely-themed, or luxury and lavish are the order of the day - our personal, discreet and attentive service will ensure that all of your wedding dreams come true.

Our elegant period drawing rooms are perfect for your arrival reception, while guests can enjoy tête-à-têtes in our library or catch up in our relaxing bars before dining in our grand reception room.

Clare McEntegart, Executive Chef, is renowned for her culinary creativity and use of fresh, seasonal, local ingredients and our Blissful Bellingham wedding package offers an extensive array of dishes to choose from.

Outside, mature gardens and the stunning riverside setting with footbridges, provide the perfect backdrop for your intimate wedding and photographs.

As an approved venue to host civil weddings, humanist ceremonies and civil partnerships, our wedding team would be delighted to provide you with contact details for both Spiritualist and HSE ceremonies; as well as the local Parish Office contact details.

We can cater for smaller intimate wedding ceremonies of up to 40 people in ‘The Oratory’ or larger numbers of up to 200 people in ‘The Bute Suite’. Alternatively, if the weather is kind, host your ceremony outdoors (please check with your registrar).

We also offer 19 luxury castle bedrooms for your family and guests to relax and stay in.
