Bellingham Castle

Castlebellingham, Co. Louth, A91 RP44

Nestled in the medieval village of Castlebellingham in County Louth along Ireland’s Ancient East, Bellingham Castle is perfectly located less than an hour from both Dublin and Belfast via the close by M1 motorway. Set at the gateway to the Cooley mountains and on the banks of the glistening River Glyde, Bellingham Castle is the centrepiece of a 17-acre estate that includes a weir and man-made river island.

The opulent 17th Century Irish castle is bursting with rich history, splendour, and old-world luxury. Fully refurbished, yet retaining all of its character and charm, Bellingham Castle prides itself on elegance and sophistication, intimacy and cosiness, luxury and exclusivity.


Bellingham Castle is an approved venue to host civil weddings, humanist ceremonies and civil partnerships. 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).


Bellingham Castle’s aim is to create something different, an exquisite combination of a welcoming atmosphere and a luxury castle experience. From dreamy and palatial bedrooms, to magnificent reception rooms and meticulously manicured gardens, we ensure each guest enjoys high-quality, bespoke service in an idyllic and inspirational location.

Our elegant period drawing rooms and library are the perfect locations for relaxation or for gathering with family or friends enjoying beverages from our bars, before dining in the grand ‘Bute Suite’. Outside, mature gardens and the stunning riverside setting with footbridges, provide the perfect backdrop for those special photographs you have always dreamed of. Sweeping lawns wrap around the castle and have been landscaped with herbaceous borders, cherry blossom trees and stud railing.

Bellingham Castle offers 19 luxury en-suite castle bedrooms which are the epitome of luxury, to ensure you end your day in decadent comfort and style. Our bedrooms have been finished to the highest standards in luxury hotel accommodation, boasting all the modern amenities of a quality hotel but in a stunning 17th Century authentic Irish Castle.


The award-winning Bellingham Castle is a family-owned and operated property. Patrick Corscadden and Ciara Carolan, along with their dedicated team, have made Bellingham Castle the leading exclusive wedding venue in the north-east of Ireland since 2013.


At Bellingham Castle, the welcome is warm, the facilities luxurious and the memories, eternal. From the moment you enter the castle estate via a spectacular stone tower and glide down our private tree-flanked driveway, you are instantly transported back in time. Come discover all that Bellingham Castle has to offer for a truly blissful experience.
