This is a good place to stay when visiting newry. It is not close to downtown but does have that country feel people are looking for. Blair is a very good host. We did have some issues with the water, but those turned out to be operator error. Breakfast was very good. The wifi needs a little work too, but... More

We've spent just one night on our way to Northern Ireland, but it was totally worthy. Blair is a perfect host, so welcoming and helpful. The room was really neat, comfortably big with tidy forniture and attention to details. Easily located in the countryside, we went for a relaxing walk, between green, inquisitive cows, sheeps and rabbits. So fun and... More

Stayed at the Hillside on Saturday 27th April and found it very good. The room was spotless and the smell of bleach from the loo pleased my daughter. The welcoming friendly atmosphere abounded and fresh milk for a cuppa was a nice touch making it a home from home. If I stay at a B&B near Newry again it will... More

Hillside is a very comfortable place with plenty of space and great views. But the best part is the super humor and sincere desire to make us comfortable that we felt from our host. Yummy breakfast too.

We recently spent a couple of nights at Hillside. Spacious room with comfortable bed; excellent breakfast with home made compote and home made cake; good coffee. Well appointed house with separate lounge for guests. Blair made us feel at home to the extent that we felt like part of the family - so much so that we felt we had... More

Nice B&B in the countryside. There is room for parking and taking a taxi from the town center is about 7 pounds. The room we stayed in was spacious, had a great view out the window, and was quite. The bedroom was clean and well put together. The breakfast was great and the owner was very accommodating. We arrived very... More

We stayed at Hillside B&B in September 2013. Blair was very welcoming. Our room was extremely clean and comfortable. Hillside is in the country and it was relaxing to be outside the busy town of Newry. Blair had the house decorated very nice, lots of detail in every room.

Hillside B&B is in fairly remote area and not within walking distance to Irvine. Our room was clean and spacious. If in the future we needed a stop- over stay in this area we would use it again, mostly because of Bair's personal interest in the well being of his guests.
