The ‘Majestically Magical’ four star Hillgrove Hotel, Leisure and Spa is the ultimate Family Holiday venue. Proprietors, Colm and Audri Herron understand the value and importance of a family Hotel, having learned what is required from their daughter Scarlett!  “We realised how few Hotel’s in Ireland really know how to cater properly for families.  Hotel’s abroad seem to have it down to a fine art, so we decided it was time to provide the best facilities possible for every family looking for a short break or a week away. We now provide exciting tailor made packages and entertainment for families throughout the year”.  

Ok, so what makes the Hillgrove Hotel so Family Friendly then?  Firstly, the Hotel is situated minutes walk from Monaghan town, set in private grounds away from busy roads.
