Belleek Break

Rory O'Toole in Belleek, Ballina

We took a few days off this week and booked a night in The Ice House hotel in Ballina in Co. Mayo. What a wonderful hotel! Our room had one glass wall that looked out at the river Moy. Floor to ceiling stunning view! Definitely a recommended treat if you are in that part of the world

Part of the reason for being up there was to do a little recce for a wedding I have coming up in Belleek Castle in Mayo. It’s actually pretty much straight across the river from the Ice House. These photos of myself and Eilish are in the grounds of the castle. The light was wonderful on Monday, but it lashed rain and the wind howled the following day. Hopefully it’ll be fine again for the wedding. We had lunch in the castle, most delicious, and a very interesting and welcoming place. Looking forward to the wedding there in just under two months. Can’t wait!
