Situated on the northern tip of Upper Lough Erne, Belle Isle is a 470-acre estate spread over eight picturesque islands. Inhabited since the 12th century and bought in 1991 by the Duke of Abercorn, it is now a vibrant working farm offering a wide range of attractive self-catering accommodation. The modernisation of the Castle, dating from 1680, was completed in 1993. Thereafter, the Coach House, followed by the farm courtyard, were skillfully converted to provide comfortable, linked holiday cottages.
Belle Isle Castle, one of the Coach House cottages and two of the Courtyard Cottages (Sycamore and Ash Cottage) are available to be booked by our guests. The properties are furnished to a high standard and imaginatively decorated with warm colours.
An imposing double-vaulted entrance hall leads to an elegant drawing room with a magnificent open fireplace. Fine English and Irish antiques, rattan furniture from the spice island of Cebu and striking Russian paintings from St. Petersburg, all help to create the room's comfortable and welcoming ambience. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of the sunken garden and beyond. The Grand Hall, a vast banqueting room complete with its own minstrels gallery, seats 65 guests. Antique furniture and paintings by Victorian masters are all offset beautifully by the dramatic colour scheme created by international interior designer, the late David Hicks. We offer other options at this location which may be of interest if you need to accommodate a different sized group. Please see Belle Isle Castle, sleeping eight guests.
