“Wonderful in every respect” is a comment that is often made about Hilton Park. The family of the “warmly hospitable” Maddens have lived here for nearly 300 years. Johnny Madden is a very civilised character, full of chat about local affairs. His wife Lucy is one of the most inspired cooks in Ireland.
John Ardagh, The Observer
The Madden family have been providing country house accommodation for nearly thirty years. Johnny and Lucy, co founders of the Hidden Ireland, lend their knowledge and experience to the next generation Fred and Joanna.
