Temple House is a beautiful Georgian mansion set in an estate of 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. This is not a hotel or just a bed and breakfast, but an historic home offering unique and luxury country house accommodation.

Half a mile of avenue wanders through parkland, its green grass maintained in perfect order with the assistance of sixteen hundred sheep and their lambs. Fine old trees provide the flock with a measure of shade on hot days and, in all directions, there is a screen formed by the natural woods that cover more than half the area of this impressive estate.

You will find on site boating, pike fishing, birdwatching, terraced gardens and miles of woodland walks. Within easy reach are beautiful beaches, eagles flying, archaeological sites, horse riding, trout fishing and four championship golf courses. Traditional Irish music and dancing sessions are often held nearby,
