A Castle in Ireland!(0)
Belle Isle Castle,

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 16 guests. We have recently completed a gentle update with the conversion of the existing bathrooms to en-suite while retaining the original period details of the bedrooms. The castle now features 7 luxurious en-suite bedrooms. The property is owned by the Duke of Abercorn.

This fairytale 17th century castle stands on a private 450 acre island estate on the lovely waters of Upper Lough Erne in County Fermanagh. One wing of the castle is available to rent for your exclusive use. The blend of ancient grandeur and modern amenities combine to provide the last word in comfort and ambiance. Fine antiques and fascinating art works grace the main reception rooms, which include a banqueting hall, complete with minstrels’ gallery. This lovely property is perfect for a week of Painting and discussing Art with our own private group. Those not painting and gourmets have the opportunity to enrol in the on-site cookery school.
