Ireland Bed and Breakfast in a Georgian Manor near Sligo.
Half a mile of avenue wanders through parkland, its green grass maintained in perfect order with the assistance of sixteen hundred sheep and their lambs. Fine old trees provide the flock with a measure of shade on hot days and, in all directions, there is a screen formed by the natural woods that cover more than half the area of this impressive estate.
The house, a luxury Guest House in Sligo in Ireland, is a classical Georgian manor set in a private estate of over 1,000 acres, overlooking a 13th-century lakeside castle of the Knights Templar. The Perceval family home since 1665, the present manor was redesigned in 1864 and enjoys the authentic and unpretentious country house atmosphere.

Mystical location.Pastures of sheep, lovely lake, ancient ruins, beautiful woods, huge historical home with period furniture, central heating, updated bathroom, wonderful host and lovely meal. WISH WE HAD STAYED LONGER!
Wonderful overnight stay with the Percevals. Getting up early in the morning and walking the grounds before a lovely breakfast was the essence of the manor house experience. We pulled on boots at the front door and wandered amid the three castle ruins just down the lawn, startling the sheep. They raised a chorus. It is living history to wander the halls and study the portraits. Not to be missed. Delightful conversation, time by the fire in the sitting room before bed. Only regret is not having arranged for dinner as well.
