The enchanting castle wedding venue, located in 200 acres of woodland, is on historical ground in every sense of the word, and has been from the middle-ages, closely connected to Mayo history. It was built between 1825 and 1831 on the site of Belleek Abbey from the 13th century.
Designed by the famous John Benjamin Keane and built by Irish labour, the manor was commissioned by Sir Francis Arthur Knox-Gore. Marshall Doran acquired the come down Manor House in 1961.It was literally a life-long process, requiring a 24/7 commitment as well as great knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm to transform the manor into the romantic castle hotel, the gourmet restaurant and wedding venue that it is today.
