Bellingham Castle named one of the top small hotels in Ireland


Bellingham Castle in Castlebellingham has been named as one of the top small hotels in Ireland in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards

The hotel was named in fourth place in the section based on pre-pandemic travellers’ reviews published on TripAdvisor in 2019.

Ahead of Bellingham Castle on the ‘Top Small Hotels in Ireland’ list were Heaton’s Guesthouse in Dingle, Co Kerry, Loch Lein Country House in Fossa, Co Kerry and Spanish Point House in Spanish Point, Co Clare.

Also making up the top five was MacNean House & Restaurant in Blacklion, Co Cavan.

Harvey’s Point in Donegal was named the top overall hotel in Ireland while The Killarney Park in Killarney was named the top luxury hotel.

Dating from 1660, Bellingham Castle was acquired in 2012 by the Corscadden family, who also run Cabra Castle Hotel in Kingscourt. They subsequently invested in a major refurbishment, which led to the castle reopening in January 2014 as an exclusive wedding venue.
