Our story began in 1958, when Dermot Meehan purchased the entire estate, including Bellingham Castle. Dermot spent several years converting the castle into a hotel. He ran it as a hotel for 13 years and sold the hotel and 17 acres in 1967.

Then in 2012, the hotel was acquired by the Corscadden family and it is run as a fabulous wedding venue now.

Des’s engineering background married well with Margot’s end vision. Margot’s attention to detail and eye for interior design has made Bellingham Estate a breath-taking place to stay.
