My partner and I spent a weekend in Temple House, Co. Sligo in July 2021. Beautifully situated in its own park, the house dating from the mid 1800s feels more like a family home than a hotel. Our meals were taken at the huge dining room table overlooking the park and the lake. The food was honestly scrumptious : homemade soups, guinea fowl, delicious rhubarb crumble in particular were memorable. The bed in our room overlooking the lake was large and extremely comfortable. The ensuite bathroom boasted a toilet that (I think) dated from the 1930s but worked perfectly; this with the period furnishings added to the charm and experience. The walls are hung with portraits of the ancestors of Roderick Perceval, who was a gracious and helpful host. The park has 2 ruins which can be seem from the house. The house has an authentic, lived in family home atmosphere even though the rooms are grand. I would highly recommend Temple House, a few miles from Sligo town and all the sights this county has to offer.…
We would like to thank Roderick for our wonderful stay along the wonderful templehouse Lake.. We rented a rowing boat which we then took across the lake were we set up camp for the night and enjoyed some great fishing and views.. Highly recommend to anyone who wants great views, fishing and the staff at temple House were very pleasant to deal with. Thanks again Stuart
Another memorable visit to this friendly, relaxing, historic house where the food and service are always wonderful. Our vast room (informally named 'The Half-Acre') has three tall windows looking out across the beautiful parkland, with its ancient trees and grazing sheep. A big 'Thank You' to Roderick and Helena Perceval for being such great hosts, and for preserving this welcoming 'Big House', an essential part of Ireland's history and landscape.
Beautiful house, steeped in history, rooms are amazing & v comfortable. Food was gorgeous; hosts Roderick and family are v attentive, considerate and also let us enjoy their home without fuss. Blown away by the art and historical artefects. Really unique place to unwind and catch up with family. Cant wait to go back. Highly recommended
Had the most wonderful family weekend at Temple House. Roderick and his family made us feel so welcome right from our arrival. Rooms absolutely lovely. Dinners were outstanding! The enormous dining table held the whole lot of us very comfortably! My only complaint is that I ate too much!! We hope to make this an annual event and stay for longer next time. Highly recommend staying here!
