This house is amazing. Hands down one of the nicest and cleanest houses that we have ever rented. Mechelle the owner/manager is extremely on top of taking care of the guests. I would highly recommend this lovely place to anyone planning on staying in Northern Ireland.

We thought your cottage really lovely. Very well appointed in every way and very comfortable. Thank you for allowing our dogs inside but not having them upstairs meant that mine slept in the car Fine in summer but would not work in the winter. Also there is only gravel for the dogs to toilet on. ...

Exceeded our expectations.Clean and quant.A bit out of town but we loved that. Comfy and well stocked. Trying to keep balanced, the only negative would be.....needs another pan to fry in. We would stay again for sure.

This house has a lovely kitchen and beautiful Irish art throughout. The bedrooms and bathrooms are warm and comfortable however it is not perfectly clean. The linens are clean but the other surfaces and floors leave quite a bit to be desired. However we would be happy to rebook it as it is well appointed ...

Pocket Guide: Hillsborough Castle Hillsborough Castle Hotels

Grand Hillsborough Castle is the official residence for the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, and is where members of the British Royal Family customarily reside when in the country. In 1920, this 18th century Georgian manor was sold by the sixth Marquess of Downshire to the British government (it is not actually a castle and the name Hillsborough derives from the Hill family that built it, and the surrounding village). Since then, it has played host to numerous British and foreign dignitaries, including former President George W Bush.

Steeped in history, Hillsborough Castle is where the Anglo-Irish Agreement of 1985 was signed, aimed at bringing an end to the troubles. Crucial talks leading to the treaty that actually achieved that goal, the Good Friday Agreement, were also held here. The ashes of Mo Mowlam were scattered within the grounds.

Tours of Hillsborough Castle and almost 100 acres of pretty gardens are available, but check online before visiting as house visits operate to a schedule. You can wander through elegant staterooms, including the Throne Room, and see portraits of those who have stayed here, from regal personages to humble pot-washers. The gardens, featuring ornamental landscaping, scenic woodland and trickling streams, are a joy to wander around any day of the year. What began as a simple country home has now become the heart of a scenic Georgian village and a royal favourite, but more than that, a fixture of Northern Ireland’s turbulent history.
