Bellingham Castle Hotel, Louth
The iconic Bellingham Castle is set at the gateway to the Cooley Mountains and the lovely northeast of the country, just 50 minutes from Dublin. Bellingham Castle is set on 17 acres in the most romantic setting overlooking its own river and weir.
The entrance to the hotel is via a beautiful stone tower and gate lodge, built by Sir Henry Bellingham in 1880, and a long straight avenue flanked by tall broadleaves leads to a large forecourt with ample parking and landscaped flowerbeds and shrubberies.
The castle sits high above the River Glyde and stone steps lead to the water’s edge and to a beautiful weir with footbridges and walkways. A millrace diverted from the river forms a long wooded island with a splendid weeping willow hanging over the weir. Sweeping lawns wrap around the castle and have been landscaped with herbaceous borders, cherry blossom trees and stud railing.
The wonderful ivy clad castle provides superb accommodation and banqueting facilities including a large banqueting hall and 2 conference rooms.
Luxury Castle Rooms
There are 19 stylish and elegant bedroom suites at Bellingham Castle, all rich in history and comfort. The castle bedrooms are individually themed, such as Sir Henry's room and The Music Room. Enjoy views of the River Glyde, or the formal gardens, the fountain or the nearby church steeples surrounded by mature trees.
