Roderick and Helena Perceval are the most gracious hosts!! You feel welcome in their home, and WHAT a home it is!! This is an absolutely beautiful country estate on 1000 acres including lake, sheep, and even family dogs, to soothe yourself when feeling “homesick” and away from your own.  The guest rooms upstairs are enormous!! You feel like you...

My visit to Temple House was so wonderful, with a great host more than happy to tell tales of the house, its occupants and the local area, fantastic food (many thanks for accomodating my allergies) and an all round relaxing experience. The 4 course evening meal being a set menu was such a treat and so wonderfully cooked with no...

We had high expectations of Temple House before arriving based on online reviews. However, the reality far exceeded those expectations. After 10 days of staying in conventional hotels throughout Ireland, our jaws dropped as we drove down the long driveway surrounded by grazing sheep and views of castle ruins on the premises of an 18th-century manor house. It was like...

Thank you very much for your words. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. It is worth noting that dinner is only 45 euro each (it might be misleading on your review). We believe that 4 courses of good Irish produce cooked with passion and care by our French cook remains good value. Hope to see you again.

My husband and I stayed at The Temple House from 23 till 25 May 2013. Coming from the Currarevagh in Oughterard where we just before had a fantastic time, we were slightly worried that no place could exceed our last days' experience. From the moment we entered the estate, I could not believe my eyes... Left and right from the...

If you get a chance to stay here, don't miss it. We stayed 3 nights this week. Everything about Temple House is excellent. The owners, Roderick and Helena are warm, gracious hosts that make you feel right at home in their home. Our room overlooked the lake and 12th century Knights of Templar castle ruins. This a grand country estate...

I don’t even know where to begin in reviewing our stay at the “Temple House.” My friend and I spent 10 days traveling through parts of Ireland and our stay here was the highlight of our trip!

Just returned home from a week-long trip to Ireland, with the last 2 nights spent at Temple House - what a treat!

One of our favorite places to stay in Ireland. We have been back 3 times. It is definitely a destination in itself. Roderick is a wonderful host. They often have wonderful special events. I would love to return for one. We have been there as a couple, with family, and again with friends. All were exceptional stays.
