About Bellingham Castle


At Bellingham Castle, the welcome is warm, the facilities luxurious and the memories, eternal. Our weddings are all individual, and due to the exclusivity, the seclusion allows you to have the day of your dreams.

Set on the banks of the glistening River Glyde, Bellingham Castle is an opulent, exclusive-hire castle wedding venue, where you and your guests can enjoy a magical day in complete privacy. The castle is the centrepiece of a 17-acre estate that includes a weir and man-made river island. The spacious 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 – all just 50 minutes from both Dublin and Belfast.

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

From delectable canapés, to a mouth-watering five-course wedding banquet, Bellingham Castle is renowned for culinary creativity and use of fresh, seasonal, local ingredients and our Blissful Bellingham wedding package offers an extensive array of dishes for you to choose from.

As an approved venue to host civil weddings, humanist ceremonies and civil partnerships, we can cater for intimate wedding ceremonies of all sizes, from 40-200 guests, in various locations inside the castle.

Bellingham Castle offers 19 luxury en-suite castle bedrooms for family and guests to relax and stay in. Depending on which room guests stay in, they will have picturesque views of the River Glyde, our formal gardens, the fountain, or the nearby church steeples.

We offer a choice of suites on your wedding night – you can choose from the stunning Sir Henry’s Room or the Music Room, both boasting large king size beds and free-standing, roll-top bathtubs – each the perfect haven to unwind after your fairytale wedding day.

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 wedding venue in the north-east of Ireland since 2013.
