Dinner at Temple House is especially fun. Gather in the Morning Room and Library for pre-dinner drinks, discover what is on the menu, select a bottle of wine and meet your fellow guests. Dress tends to be smart casual. It’s 54 euro for 3 courses followed by petits fours and coffee or your choice of tea..


We have had to change with the times. The dining room has been moved to a bigger room, and the table is bigger too. We want to ensure that there is sufficient space for your comfort.

We have two seating arrangements. 
1) If you prefer we'll put you on a separate table. You can remind us in the booking process and we'll check with you as well.

2) You will be seated together at a large mahogany table complete with crystal glass - the table is enormous so spacing is easy. 

Roderick and Helena are on hand to give an insight into the extraordinary history of their magnificent home


Please book dinner on your first evening in advance during the reservation process online by phone or email. We gather at 7, or sooner if the G&T beckons, and sit down at 7.30pm, Monday - Saturday.

Sample Menu

Menus are seasonal and vary each day – this is a sample
We take great care to source our ingredients as locally as possible, often mere metres from the dining room. We offer a set menu but are always pleased to cater for dietary requirements with advance notice. In other words, if there is something that you do not or cannot eat just tell us.
