Stay in a genuine Irish castle and private island 

Staying in a fairytale castle is a magical experience, but add in the fact that Belle Isle Castle is on its own private island, and you have the ingredients for a truly special holiday. 

Belle Isle Castle and Private Island is a short  distance from Enniskillen in Northern Ireland. The island sits on Upper Lough Erne and the castle enjoys stunning views over the lush green Irish countryside and the Fermanagh Lakelands.

Built in the 17th Century, Belle Isle Castle is quite the stunning country house in a beautiful corner of Northern Ireland. Close by are refurbished outhouses and coachhouses exquisitely transformed into beautiful 4 star self catering apartments and homes.
