Stayed at Hillside with my wife Sam and we found it to be as we expected after researching it on the internet. Blair the owner was very helpful in arranging our stay and even texted us to ensure we were okay as we delayed in arriving (which i did not expect but was most appreciated). When we arrived we were...

The owner made us feel more like family than guests and spoilt us. Unfortunately our trip was only short. However we intend on returning with more family members and book the whole place and definitely stay longer than a weekend. We received a phone call shortly after our arrival time just to make sure that we were not experiencing any...

We stayed at Hillside for three days in the middle of April. A really relaxing place with clean and comfortable rooms and beds. Rich breakfast. Blair, the kind host, made really us feel at home. The panorama is something unbelievable. Would really recommend it.

Our first night's stay in Northern Ireland, October, 2012, couldn't have been better. At the Hillside B&B rooms were beautifully appointed and amenities, superlative. Owner Blair Vernon’s hospitality was beyond anything we’d expected. Tired and lost in Newry, we called him several times for directions, and finally he drove into town centre and escorted us to near-Nirvana. Breakfast was the...

We were visiting relatives in the area - there are not a lot of choices. This was only 5 minutes from town and easy to find. Clean. Friendly owner (just recently purchased). A VERY good value (USD50) including breakfast.
