Had a wonderful experience making a full meal at Belle Isle. The whole day was a great learning experience and I was so surprised at what I managed to achieve. Joe Kelly explained everything so simply and was on hand to help if things weren't going according to plan! Well worth the money.

Just returned from a great day out on the "Dinner Party Course". A warm welcome from Joe Kelly and his staff was followed by a thoroughly enjoyable day of eating and cooking. Facilities and instruction were first class - highly recommended.

My sister-in-law did this and dragged the boys along with us....the boys had as much fun as we did! Not only was Chef Joe good at keeping everything moving and interesting, he taught us all a great deal about the science of cooking and why things are done they way they are (for instance why you let things sit before...

This was a day trip with a special friend to do something that little bit different. Neither of us were great cooks but we both enjoy food. The cookery course was informative. Lots of techniques and hints were given. Recipes were sent home with us to try. Basically we sent all day making food that we would eat later around... More

My wife bought me a gift voucher and I eventually decided to attend. Chef, Joe Kelly, speaks with an American twang and is full of Irishisms and humour. An informative, fun way to learn how to cook exotic meals to please her indoors. I have no hesitation in recommending Belle Isle.

Everything about Belle Isle is surperb....from their beautiful clean cosy self catering cottages to the expert cookery school with Joe and his able helpers Ruth and Erin. We could not recommend Belle Isle cottages and cookery school enough. We will definitely be back. Pat & Jean from Comber
