Unlock the Past, Embrace Today.

Spectacular 160-acre Lakeside Estate and Georgian Villa in Westmeath

World of Contrast

Prepare for an adventure at Belvedere House – a stunning Georgian country house near Mullingar in Westmeath that dates to 1740 and which shares its story of opulence and splendour, sadness and joy, with more than 100 000 visitors each year.

Here, rich and dramatic history meets life at its best, today. At Belvedere, architectural beauty holds hands with unspoilt nature, and open rolling parklands give way to whimsical discoveries. This is a place where the compelling story of a feuding family will enlighten and fascinate, while providing a breath-taking setting for family togetherness, fun and a full calendar of events. Belvedere can be your place of serenity and reflection or a joyful celebration of nature and life – a window into the past or your best day out, today.
