Hugged by vast private gardens, Hillgrove Hotel sits on the outskirts of Monaghan town. Dublin and Belfast are less than an hour away, which makes the hotel a great destination for a quick break. For some extra relaxation and pampering, guests can pay a visit to the leisure club with a 20-metre heated swimming pool, hot tub, steam room and sauna, or the rejuvenating spa.
Classic and sleek, the rooms feature spacious beds with deep mattresses and crisp linen sheets for a good night’s sleep. Each one comes with a large-screen multi-channel TV and an en-suite bathroom with a shower, bathtub and Paul Costelloe toiletries.
Traditional fare with a contemporary twist can be savoured in the Vettriano Restaurant or Dali Restaurant. Guests can also keep the tradition alive with a sumptuous afternoon tea.
