We are so thrilled that we chose Bellinter House as our wedding venue. We had high expectations and they were exceeded in every way. The warmest of welcomes and incredible food that our guests are still raving about. Barbara, Paul and their team went to great effort to make sure that we were relaxed and enjoyed the day too. We had the wedding of our dreams and neither of us would change a thing.
Personal touches are everywhere in this house. Thoughtful details like welcome notes left for each of the us in our rooms and knowing all of our wedding party's names really made this house a home for our wedding. Barbara was our first point of contact and helped us to create a day that felt unique to us. She had so many fabulous ideas and was so supportive and excited when we wanted to try something different.
Francoise and Pat were incredible in the kitchen and delighted all of our guests. We had number of guests with specific dietary needs and each of them were wowed by the creative and thoughtful alternatives provided. The service was impeccable and so well timed. Hayley was wonderful in helping us to pair wines and pull the menu together to create a really special dining experience.
Organising the accommodation couldn't have been easier and Shiyra was always on hand with any questions or changes required. Each of the rooms are a little different and have some wonderful touches, this house is full of character.
Paul runs a tight ship and it shows. Walking into this house, we could see that the staff were a close knit team, well trained and so polite. We immediately trusted Bellinter with the most important event of our lives and we now have memories to last a lifetime.
Wedding: Lisa & David, September 2018
We had our wedding reception at Bellinter House on 08th June 2018. When we were searching for a venue for our wedding, this place was the one for us from when we drove in the gate. From the house itself, the lush setting, to the food and staff, they were exceptional. Communication with Bellinter House throughout the whole year and a half of dealing with them was second to none.
We were originally supposed to get married during the snow on the 02nd March 2018 but due to safety reasons and in conjunction with Bellinter House, we had to postpone the wedding. During this difficult time, the staff of Bellinter House were so incredibly supportive and immediately arranged a new date for us. They were unbelievably accommodating during this stressful time and we can't thank them enough for their kindness and understanding.
The day itself was wonderful. Bellinter House looked stunning. My guests were constantly praising the venue and their fantastic friendly staff on the wedding day and the days that followed. I was so proud that we had our reception there. Any requests that we made for the day itself were followed through. Every guest request was accommodated be it food or bedrooms. We were given the run of the place. Even the night porter ,Willie, put up with our sing song and dancing until 6AM the next day.
We look forward to staying in Bellinter House for many wedding anniversaries to come. To Paul, Barbara, Emer, Hayley and all the wonderful staff of Bellinter House, you were all great and a credit to Bellinter House. Your passion for weddings and the house itself is clear from the minute you arrive in Bellinter House. Keep up the fantastic work.

Hi Barbara, just a note to say thank you so much for everything. We had the most amazing weekend . Everything was perfect. Yourself, Alan, Paul, Casha, Hayley, Derek and all the other staff were amazing. Thanks for making it fantastic. We had so many compliments from our guests about the food, the service and all the staff. Everyone was so kind and professional, couldn't do enough for us and really made us feel that Bellinter was our home for the weekend. Your patience with all the kids was particularly appreciated. We couldn't have wished for more and are so glad that we chose Bellinter House for our wedding. From the very beginning you were so easy to communicate with and happy to answer all of our questions. Everything ran really smoothly on the day making the whole thing really relaxed and easy going - exactly what we wanted. Thank you again and we can't wait to come back!! Sophie & Liam
Dear Barbara, Paul, Alan and all Bellinter Staff, We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your time, efforts and expertise which made our wedding day amazing.
We have had so many calls and texts commending Bellinter especially the food, service and location.
We had a such a brilliant weekend and look forward to popping back at some stage to stay and reminisce.
We're half way through our road trip in California - it's rather hot! Hope all is ok there as we hear there is a hurricane!
Thanks, Donal and Jon X
I hope you and all the staff in Bellinter are keeping well.
Myself and James arrived home from Rome yesterday and back to reality today in work. We had the best week eating and drinking our way around Rome in the blissful sun talking about how amazing our wedding was!
I just needed to send you a quick email to express our gratitude to you all for providing us with the perfect day. Honestly everything just went so well. The food was incredible, all our guests could not stop complementing us on how amazing the meal was so a huge well done to all the chefs on that one!
All the staff were just brilliant. Any time I asked for anything they just got it done with a cool, no problem vibe, so happy with them all and Hayley also for running the restaurant and all the bar men serving us till the very wee hours! Oh and the lovely waiter who chopped up the cheese at 4am to my savage friends lol!
Everyone had such a great time, we can’t ask for much more than that, and most importantly myself and James had a ball!!
We can't wait to come back very soon to spend some more time in our dream venue!
Many thanks again, Louise and James Statham!
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
Wedding: Sinead and Brian
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. Annemarie Greene and Ben Garry
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. Dermot Hanley and Grace Bruton
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 ; )Siobhan Murphy and JP McKenna
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.Pat and Sam Brophy
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.

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.

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
