We had a lovely stay at the Hilltop. We were made to feel very welcome by Sean and Dymphna. We stayed on the lower floor and there was a stairs leading up to the breakfast room. The room was clean and bright. There were kit kats with the tea and coffee, which was a lovely touch. The ensuite was grand and there were plenty of towels. There was also free wifi which was a nice surprise. Outside we had a spectacular view of the beautiful gardens below. We drove out to the town of Mullingar and ate a lovely meal at the Old Country house restaurant at the Annebrook.
We slept well. The breakfast was lovely. Bacon, egg and rashers. There was lovely filtered coffee. Overall we had a lovely stay and would definitely return next year.
