Temple House

Stay at Temple House

If you are looking for somewhere to stay this Summer then look no further than Co Sligo! Stay at Temple House in Ballymote, Co Sligo and explore the best of the Irish countryside along the Wild Atlantic Way! Temple House is set in the centre of a beautiful 1000 acre west of Ireland estate and was remodelled in 1864.

Location:

Temple House

The House overlooks the 13th century castle of the Knights Templar, who owned this land in medieval times. The Perceval family have lived here since 1665. The present house was built in 1864 by the owner’s forebear, having returned from China with a rich wife and an enormous fortune. As a result he trebled the size of his home. Whilst the house is of enormous proportions, it has the lovely sense of intimacy and warmth of a family home.

The House:

Roderick & Helena are welcoming hosts taking great pride in the character of their home and the special nature of Temple House Estate. Temple House is a vast classical house in the Georgian style. Temple House still retains its authentic decoration and furniture with delicate Chinese porcelain intermingled with solid County Sligo squires and their ladies. The main reception rooms are large, bright and comfortable. The bedrooms, several have canopied beds are particularly pleasant, with superb views. One of the bedrooms is so large that it has a well deserved reputation as ‘the half-acre’.

 

Temple House will reopen to welcome guests from mid April 2022. Click here to check availability!

Ballyvolane House

Stay at Ballyvolane House

Escape to Ballyvolane House and stay a glorious historic Irish country house. Feast on delicious home-grown food meticulously prepared by our chef Sarah English and sip on our own Bertha’s Revenge Gin tipples. Why not explore the delights of the locality such as cliff walks on the coast, hike up the Knockmealdown or Galtee mountains? Visit Cork City and Kinsale, cast a fly on the river Blackwater or gently glide down the river in a canoe or simply relax here.

Enjoy late breakfasts, curl up by the fire and immerse yourself in all the latest glossy magazines, stroll around the gardens and if inclined, come and help feed the pigs and chickens, or if you are feeling active, play a game of tennis in the walled garden. We are always happy to help plan day trips during the day and book a table at some of our excellent local eateries.

Originally built in 1728, Ballyvolane House is a magical house surrounded by woods, vast gardens and parkland. The house has a charming, peaceful and homely atmosphere. There are three lakes and the huge gardens are impeccably maintained by Jeremy Green. Jeremy and his late wife Merrie, a fly-fishing expert, first opened their home as luxurious country house accommodation about twenty-five years ago. Ballyvolane House is now run by their son Justin and his wife Jenny, who have brought a wealth of Hospitality Management experience with them. Hosting weddings and other special occasions has been a huge part of Ballyvolane House for over ten years. In 2018 they were honoured to have HRH The Prince of Wales and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall to stay at Ballyvolane House during their official visit to Cork.
