Temple House

One of Ireland’s most unspoilt old houses, this is a Georgian mansion on 1,200 acres of farm and woodland, overlooking the original lakeside castle which was built by the Knights Templar in 1200 A.D.

The Percevals have lived here since 1665, and the house was redesigned and refurbished in 1864; despite essential modernisation, Temple House - now run by Roderick and Helena Perceval has retained its old atmosphere and, in addition to central heating, has log fires to cheer the enormous rooms (the bridal couple usually choose the ‘half acre’ bedroom, for its sheer size and light).

Civil Ceremonies or blessings are possible here, and there are several churches to choose from nearby; both the house and gardens present endless opportunities for photographs. The wedding party takes over the guest rooms and grounds for two days and the wedding venues hire charge includes 2 nights bed and breakfast and one dinner for 14 guests; there are terraced gardens and miles of woodland walks, and the wedding party may also explore the lake in a rowing boat and fish for pike.

If it is part of your plan, your civil ceremony has to be held under a fixed roof Monday-Friday; usually about 4pm so that it runs nicely into the reception timings.  The Percevals like to hold it in the great hall. Then the initial reception with bubbly and canapés would be in the vestibule, morning room and hopefully in a sunny garden. You would then normally move through to the old drawing room for dinner and then dancing.

The house can seat up to 100; over those numbers, a marquee can be set up on the croquet lawn - a champagne reception is first held in the house, allowing everyone to enjoy its grandeur, then the party moves out to an open or clear-sided marquee.

A beautiful house in a wonderful setting.
