The Kitchen team is led by local chef Stephen Lenahan, his philosophy is to use classic and imaginative cooking with local, seasonal ingredients from our land, sea and air combining a depth of flavour with the traditions of the castle. The elegance and splendour of the 19th Century Manor House is the perfect place for our elaborate 2AA Rosette cuisine.
The kitchen team has won several awards in the past, including the Irish Restaurant Awards 2014 for “Best Hotel Restaurant” in Connaught and “Best Restaurant Manager” in Connaught, as well as the Georgina Campbell’s “Just Ask!” Restaurant of the Year 2014 Award. 2016 has seen the hotel pick up the award for "Best Hotel Restaurant" in Mayo for the 3rd year in row at the regional awards in Sligo. The Restaurant then went on to represent Mayo at the national awards where once again we picked up the award for "Best Hotel Restaurant in Connacht" everyone in the Castle were delighted to pick up these awards from the "Restaurants Association of Ireland"

Belleek Castle Restaurant: Please share your dining experience
"This is a wonderful restaurant. Food, setting, staff top marks" You are in for a treat if you go here, If the weather is good you can sit outside on bean bags, really good if you have children. It is just so relaxing. Enclosed within a courtyard, there is a fairy walk 10 mins away on the grounds, I'd highly recommend it.

"Amazing visit to Belleek Castle" We went as a family for dinner and one of our party was celebrating his 50th birthday. Not only did the staff totally take care of our every need from ensuring my nephew, who has a severe tree nut allergy, was looked after, but they even put together a small selection of treats for the birthday boy as we sang “Happy Birthday”. The staff couldn’t have been nicer and the meal was gorgeous. The food was spectacular. It is truly worth visiting if you are near Ballina.

All in all dinner at Belleek Castle restaurant was great. The service was top notch, the setting was beautiful (although a little cramped trying to fit 5 people around a small table) and the food was very good. I enjoyed the yellow fin tuna starter, the chocolate orange moose was very good and the Drunken bullock for main was delicious.
Seeing the main course arrive is a spectacle in itself. It comes to your table pierced through a sword. It is then flambeed with an Irish Whiskey Sauce before being deliver to your plate cooked to your liking. On top of that it tasted delicious. Try the Drunken Bullock. You won't regret it.
