Hill House is just outside the village of Ballyporeen, in South Tipperary, about ten minutes from the town of Mitchelstown.  It is close to the M8 which is the motorway that runs between Dublin and Cork.  This means that it takes about 40 minutes to get to Cork City, about an hour to get to Limerick and about one and a half hours to get to Dublin.  It is, as the name suggests, on the top of a hill with beautiful views of the Galtee Mountains to the North and the Knockmealdown mountains to the South.  Between the home and the mountains are farms and fields of sheep, cattle and crops.
