A stunning castle set on its own private island, on the shores of Lough Erne in County Fermanagh. At the heart of this 470-acre estate the 17th-century Belle Isle Castle, once home to generations of nobles, welcomes groups of up to 26 guests.
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.
Belle Isle Castle has been hosting events since 1740 so they know a thing or two about looking after guests! What are you waiting for?
