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.

Our large family stayed at Temple House for a special Birthday celebration and had a wonderful weekend. We were made feel at home by Roderick, his family & staff. The house & grounds provided great exploring opportunities for the children (all ages!) and the food was fantastic.

From our room, the ruins of the Templar castle and the lake beyond. No sheep though!
HI Nancy I am sorry for not seeing this question sooner. We would be delighted to host your family get together. Between the big house B&B and our cottage we could accommodate everybody. How long would you like to stay? Roderick

Thanks for getting in touch. 6 of the 7 rooms are en suite. The one with private bathroom as opposed to en suite is the 70 euro per person one. It has a picture of 2 twin brass bedsteads. Hope that helps. Roderick
