Situated in idyllic countryside on an island, in the heart of the Fermanagh Lakelands, Belle Isle Castle has magical lake views; the original castle dates back to 1680 with mid-19th century additions and, for a naturally romantic venue, this would take some beating.
The castle itself has a delightfully exclusive away-from-it-all country house atmosphere and is impressively furnished with antiques, striking paintings and dramatic colour schemes (the work of internationally renowned interior designer, David Hicks); in addition to the eight romantic bedrooms, which all have their special character, guests have use of a magnificent drawing room and also the Grand Hall, complete with minstrels’ gallery, where dinner is served - the perfect setting for an exclusive small wedding.
There are churches of several denominations within a few miles but the wedding ceremony can also be held here and costs £1,000; Belle Isle can offer a list of ministers in the area, but the minister, priest or registrar must be booked directly through the bride and groom.
This wedding venues available for exclusive use.
There is a selection of menus to choose from (special dietary needs can be accommodated), and flowers can be provided by arrangement. Accommodation on site is enough for all 60 guests if required - in addition to the eight castle rooms, there’s a converted courtyard and coach house, plus three cottages on the estate.
Staying here should be a treat as there is so much to do in this beautiful area.
