I went to Temple House about fifteen years ago, and always wanted to go back. It was as lovely as I remembered. The views are amazing, with the lake and sheep grazing in the meadows, and the two castle ruins in the background. Roderick and Helena are delightful hosts, friendly, full of great stories about the estate which has been...

We had connecting rooms that provided...

If you dreamt of 'lording' it up you might consider this venue. The house is the family seat of the Percival family and has a lot of history. We had a few problems with our booking but Roderick the landlord was more than accommodating in assisting us. Set in 400 acres and a good pike lake no TV presents itself...

Enchanting experience. Felt like we spent the night set in an 1800's castle - romantic, charming, hospitable, authentic and memorable. This one of a kind bed and breakfast mirrors the set of Downton Abbey with sweeping views of the Irish countryside, a field of a thousand sheep, overlooking an elegant lake with eagles souring above. We spent the evening snuggled...

I know Roderick and his gracious wife Helena and had been meaning to visit - I had to make the time as they are one of the leading Hidden Ireland houses. Plus, and perhaps more importantly, they are fun. As an American with historic ties to the Perceval's this place will put a lump in your throat as you drive...
