Hi Barbara, Happy New Year to you and all at Bellinter House. Jim and I would like to sincerely to thank you, Paul, Alan, Aaron, Hayley and all your great team for giving Sinead and Brian the best wedding ever. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we couldn’t have asked for more. The kindness and courtesy we and all our guests received was second to none. Everything we wanted and needed was provided, always with a smile. I particularly would like to mention all the young people who worked on New Years Eve at the function. Each one of them was at all times pleasant and smiling which was really lovely to see. Not a grumpy face in the house. Your venue is gorgeous but what makes it extra special is the service you provide. I can’t overstate this. It is what makes an event into a special and memorable occasion. And we received incredible service while we were with you. I could go on and on about individual examples of this but, suffice to say, Sinead and Brian definitely had a special and memorable wedding at Bellinter, thanks to all of you. I also commend the chef and her group for two lovely meals (rave reviews from guests for the wedding meal) and for all the lovely finger food before and after the main event. We will always remember Sinead and Brian’s wedding as a very special event and thank you all again for everything. Best regards, Mary Tierney

From the moment we met with Barbara the wedding co-ordinator in Bellinter House we knew our day was going to be special. Every step along the way was dealt with such ease and friendliness , we really felt that their aim was, genuinely to accommodate us as best they could. Which they exceeded in doing. We would highly recommend this venue, the venue itself is obviously not a new & modern contemporary style but it is a sophisticated old world dream with a splash of quirkiness and a big dollop of fun. Which is obvious with the decor throughout the house especially in the bridal suite, it's very cool. The staff are excellent and service is superb. Our day was quite chilly so we did not get to take advantage of the gardens etc. for outdoor pictures ( our own decision ) but we got some fab ones throughout the house . The food is delicious and they have a super menu & wine list to choose from. From start to finish it was a pleasure dealing with Barbara and Paul ( general manager ) and we look forward to many visits to Bellinter House in the future .

Bellinter House is the ideal venue for a wedding. We had exclusive use of this perfect country estate to entertain our guests throughout the day and evening. From the moment we arrived Dermot and I along with all our guests were treated to a 5 star level of service.
Hosting the reception in the drawing room and following on to a tastefully decorated dining area where we were served the most delicious dinner. Paul Behan and his well-trained team including Alan & Barbara could not have been more helpful or attentive throughout our wedding day, evening and following morning. I would highly recommend this place to any couple.

After visiting Bellinter House on a trawl of wedding venues, I knew instinctively that this was the place for our wedding. It exudes charm and elegance without the pretentiousness of some country estates. In addition to the beautiful original features of the house, there are complimentary quirky aesthetics which make the venue quite unique. Furthermore, that uniqueness is highlighted not only in the elegant surroundings, but the impeccable level of service and quality of food. Staff and management could not be more attentive and seemed genuinely eager to ensure that everyone was looked after. The combination of these factors together with the options for holding the ceremony in-house, exclusive use of the house and the ample on-site accommodation available make Bellinter House, a great choice for a relaxed intimate wedding. I would, therefore, highly recommend both the place and the people to any brides-to-be ; )

If we could give Bellinter House ten stars we would! Whatever plans we had made, for our wedding, Paul, Alan, Barbara, Chef Francoise and staff exceeded them. From the ceremony on the lawn under the trees, to the Champagne and phenomenal canopy reception accompanied by a Marachi Band, to the unforgettable meal prepared by Francoise of Charcuterie Board followed by Rib of Beef on the bone or Roast Leg of Lamb au jus to the French Wedding Cake, Petit Fours and all the trimmings, to the fantastic night there-after and into the wee hours. The accommodations second to none. The craic with the staff, the location to beat all locations, the venue that oozes charm, an amazing spa where and stress we may have had was melted away. We can't say enough about this special place. Having been in the hospitality business for over 30 years I can seriously recommend Bellinter House, it's amazing, it's chic and edgy yet retains all of its old world charm. Paul and his team have got their fingers on the pulse. Thank you so much again.
Wedding: Pat and Sam Brophy – 1st October 2016
We had our wedding here on the 28th of December. Everything could not have been more perfect. Paul, Alan and Barbara are an amazing team. The welcome everyone received was second to none. This place is so unique and quirky and our guest were totally taken with the place. The food was excellent and the way the team decorated the reception room exceeded all my expectations. We felt like we owned Bellinter for the few days which made the whole experience so much more special. All the rooms are beautiful and elegant and very stylish with treats included. Bellinter is like a home away from home.
Wedding: Marie Ryan and Tommy Donoghue – 28th December 2016
What an amazing day! We had the time of our lives thanks to Barbara and everyone at Bellinter House who outdid themselves. Their attention to detail allowed us to sit back and enjoy our big day in style. The venue speaks for itself, our guests had a brilliant time, the staff are a credit to themselves and everything was perfect, from the food to the service and all in-between. Top class grounds, top class food and top class staff. A great venue for any wedding.
Wedding: Michelle Doyle & Adam Fitzgerald, 27th May 2016
We had our wedding on 26th August 2016, it flowed like clockwork. From the point of booking to the build up, not once was any question left unanswered and promptly at that. The flexibility to create the wedding we wanted was incredible. Essentially, whatever we needed or wanted to have, it was arranged without question, even better with loads of enthusiasm. Thank you Barbara!!! :)
The food was second to none. All our guests said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. We had a second day hog roast, which went down a treat, from the food to the theatre of the hog, to the service at amazing value.
The service was flawless all the time, there was nothing that couldn't be done with ease and with loads of smiles! At this point, we need to mention Aaron, who we just think is AMAZING!!
We and our guests had the most wonderful weekend, full of fun and laughs. We never worried once as we were in the best and most caring hands of the Bellinter team.
Thank you so much for everything!!! X
