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 demesne. Temple House
is a magnificent Georgian mansion set amidst a 1,000 acre private estate in Co Sligo, Ireland. What a wedding venue!
Perhaps it is because it has been the family home since 1665 that makes the atmosphere here so peaceful and special for weddings. Temple House boasts rooms of enormous proportions and grandeur and yet there is a real sense of intimacy here too.
Hold your civil ceremony in the Great Hall, or maybe celebrate with a wedding blessing by the Knights Templar lakeside castle, or just make merry. We can welcome small intimate gatherings or larger parties. The croquet lawn is also an ideal spot for a marquee so the options are limitless. The gardens are spectacular, the whole setting breathtaking.
is important here too, taking enormous pride in our reputation. We look for fresh local ingredients and go from there. The sheer size of the house is particularly well suited to a buffet and dance but also provides a beautiful backdrop for a sit-down. Buffet style guests do have tables at which to perch. Your guests can mingle, inside or outside; it is all very flexible and relaxed.
The big house sleeps 14 so exclusivity is easy. A cottage
sleeping 8 on the estate plus local hotels
and B&Bs offer a flexible approach to accommodation. We would always suggest that the wedding party take the house for more than just the day. You will enjoy your stay all the more. There is a special ambiance at Temple House
and it loves a celebration..
We do not have a specific formula. No two occasions are the same – we know that. Please email or telephone to discuss your specific wedding requirements. Co Sligo is a wonderful place as a venue.
"Just wanted to drop a note now that the madness had died down to say thanks again for being such wonderful hosts, and for making our wedding planning so easy and the day so fantastic for us. All of our friends and family have been raving about Temple house
since then, and deservedly so, it really is a very special place. Your laid back but attentive approach was perfect for us and we had the most amazing few days. We will most definitely be back when we are in Ireland again and looking for a beautiful place to stay."
