Your Wedding

Exclusive weddings, big and small, are fun here.

Are you looking for an unusual or slightly alternative wedding venue? You’ve been to lots of great hotel weddings but you’d like something that bit different. Well, this is it; an authentic Country House.

Perhaps it is because it has been the family home since 1665 that makes the atmosphere here so romantic and special.

We're getting pretty good at personal video tour. So if you can't or prefer not to travel we would be delighted to take you around in person, by video. Of course you can come in person too! Set a tour date here

Welcome to Temple House

Half a mile of avenue meandering through mature parkland brings you to Temple House, its lush green grass maintained in perfect order with the assistance of 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.

Temple House, a luxury Country House in county Sligo, is a beautiful Georgian 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 enjoys the authentic and unpretentious luxury country house atmosphere.

More Country House than a hotel, Temple House is a historic home offering luxury country house accommodation in 10 rooms, sleeping 20, plus sometimes a self catering cottage that sleeps 8. 

It is a wonderful place to stay for a private gathering, a special occasion, a corporate event, a wedding party, a retreat of some sort or another get together – it is unusual, intimate and special.

For 2024 season there remains limited availability for B&B because we are pleasingly busy with whole house lets.
