Situated on the northern tip of Upper Lough Erne, Belle Isle is a 470-acre Estate, spread over eight picturesque islands. Inhabited since the 12th century, today the Estate offers an exceptional and unique experience to discerning guests. The 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. There are a wide range of activities available on the Estate - clay & game shooting, fishing and cruising on Lough Erne, a plethora of wonderful walking trails, and much more.
Rooms & Amenities
No two guests are the same and similarly each and every room at Belle Isle Castle has its own unique style and personality. From the Garden Room with its four poster bed and astonishing view across the estate, to the Ivy Room furnished with antique dressers and striking decorative wallpaper. Every room has a private, en-suite bathroom, which has been tastefully decorated to the highest of standards. Walls are decorated with regal patterned wallpaper or painted in vintage burgundy, terracotta or vibrant yellow. Some Guestrooms feature exposed oak beams & 4-poster beds.
Belle Isle Castle has been hosting events since 1760, and knows a thing or two about hospitality!
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.
Delectable catered Breakfasts and Dinners are included during your stay at Belle Isle Castle.
