Love is in the air at Bellingham Castle, where the proud owners are celebrating winning the 'Unique Venue of the Year' award at the Irish Wedding Journal Reader awards!

The prestigious Wedding Journal Reader Awards celebrate the people, businesses and suppliers that excel in the wedding industry.

Bellingham Castle were delighted with the win at Ireland's leading and most prestigious awards, where categories included bridal retailer, honeymoon provider, hotel venue, cake designer and much more.

The historic Bellingham Castle has a proud history in Louth, and indeed across the country as a truly unique venue.

Bellingham Castle served as one of the ancestral homes for the Bellingham family from the 17th Century until the 1950s. The original castle was built around 1660 by Sir Henry Bellingham who was a cornet in the Army during the Civil War.

It has come under a number of different ownerships before being bought in 2012 by the Corscadden family, who also own Ballyseede Castle in Tralee and Cabra Castle in Kingscourt.

It reopened as an exclusive venue for private weddings, civil ceremonies, conferences, meetings and corporate events.

Set on a scenic 17 acre site Bellingham Castle is open for viewing between 11am and 4 pm every day. Contact 042 93 72176 in advance.
