“You will regret NOT staying with Iris & Ernie - So Beautiful & Peaceful”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

My wife & I recently stayed with Iris & Ernie and I must say, WHAT A TREAT! A beautiful setting all around and the most friendly people around. I honestly did not want to leave. Traveling from South Carolina (USA) we felt like we were home. Here is a quick run down on our stay. House - 5 Star, Breakfast - 5 Star, Outside the house & surrounding areas - 5 Star, Iris & Ernie - 5 Star. There is no need to go on....this was the best part of our trip. Thanks Iris & Ernie, we will meet again. Jesse

We've stayed at Hilltop Lodge on a number of occasions now. Iris and Ernie are terrific hosts; it feels like we're visiting friends now when we go to stay. The rooms are fantastic. Very spacious, very clean, quality furniture, great bathrooms and wonderful views. And you won't go hungry at breakfast! You won't regret staying here...

I stay here regularly & look foward to my stay, firstly the owners Ernie & Iris take great pride in their beautiful house, you are assured of a great Irish welcome.
The rooms are better & bigger than most hotels. Tea & coffee in all rooms, great views of the spectacular countryside,
Great choice of breakfast in the morning to put you on your way.
You will not be disappointed.

We stayed at Hilltop Lodge on a Friday Night in August , we were met at the gate by Iris , who was working in her garden , you could see that she took great pride in the outside apperance of her Home and garden . At the door we meet Ernie who took my Wifes bag and showed us to our room , he took time to explain everything to us and where to go to get a good evening meal . Ernie was spot on , lovely meal . What can we say about the room , it was beautiful , so much room , it was a grand size room and not a double , it was the cleanest bedroom that we have ever seen at a B and B , the furniture was made from the best quality OAK wood really lovely .
The power shower was one of the very best that we have ever used and the quality of the bathroom furniture was of the very best quality.
We had a great night sleep , woke for breakfast , breakfast was served fresh , cooked by Ernie
and served up by Iris , who could not do enough for you .
we were so impressed that we will be back again soon.
Thank you Iris and Ernie for such a lovely time .

Room Tip: every room is good at this b and b .

A wonderfully warm welcome and so many personal touches make this venue a very special place. I could not have enjoyed my stay more. The bedroom was really big, clean and nicely furnished. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and brought to you at the table. Most of all the service is remarkable. Thank you !

We have just had a week away at Hilltop Lodge and cannot wait to go back! The house is beautiful and clean and the owners Ernie & Iris are so welcoming. The room was spacious and perfect for us. The views on a clear day are outstanding! Great 'Irish' breakfast including fresh eggs from the hens which went down a treat with our 4 year old (double yolkers!).
Feels like home from home and we will definitely be back again.
The house is well signposted and easy to find and lots to do in the surrounding areas or further afield.

Room Tip: Ground floor family room, easy access, less disruption to other guests with a our small child

Stayed in the family room and found it to be very spacious and comfortable. Great shower. House very modern and clean. Hosts friendly and informative.
Breakfast plentiful and of great quality.
This house is located on a hilltop setting with plenty of rural walks for anyone seeking a snapshot of the beautiful ulster countryside.
A great experience was had by all. Definitely recommend and hope to return soon.

Room Tip: Family room easily accommodates 5 adults.
