Travellers' Choice
Temple House, in Sligo, is a beautiful manor set in a private estate of over 1,000 acres, overlooking a 13th-century lakeside castle of the Knights Templar. The Perceval family home since 1665, the present manor was redesigned in 1864 and exudes the authentic and unpretentious country house atmosphere. More Country House than B&B or Hotel you are encouraged to immerse yourself in the special and relaxing atmosphere at Temple House. Unwind, enjoy the peace and tranquility of little noise but that of the birds and occasional sheep. The space and light is amazing, the whole setting breathtaking. Have your camera at the ready for memorable moments. A delicious breakfast with homemade granola, rhubarb from the garden, homemade soda-bread, leaf tea, French press coffee and the full Irish of course. Dinner is available Mon-Sat at 7.30pm. As reviews will testify this is an experience not to be missed. It is fine dining but our approach is unstuffy and fun for all.

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.

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.

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!
