Just found this Guest House on the Internet - excellent. I mentioned when booking that my wife was on a gluten free diet and that she would bring her gluten free bread. When we arrived the owners had bought gluten free bread - not vital but the sort of detail which gets them extra points on any review. Good selection... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. Robert our host was charming, the house was spotless and, what's more, for anyone interested in genealogy, as I am, Robert is a genealogist. An American couple were also staying, doing the wife's family history. Breakfast was excellent and the view from the dining room was wonderful. Rosemary, Robert's wife, provided... More

This is my husband and I fourth stay in Ballynester House in the last four years. Robert & Rosemary make you feel so welcome in their home. Our bedroom is lovely. Spotlessly clean. Towels & Bedding are whiter than white. So are the white robes provided. The bathroom is spacious and Rosemary provides shower gels, make up pads, body lotion... More

My husband and I just returned from a two-week vacation to England and Ireland. After flying into Dublin, we drove north to begin our jaunt around the country. We wanted to find a place that would give us access to Belfast and the northern coast (Giant's Causeway), but that would also give us a picturesque, rural location. Ballynester House did... More

The beds were the best of the B & B's we've stayed in i.e. neither too hard nor lumpy. Plush white bathrobes were furnished. The bathroom was enormous and the shower stall had a nonslip wooden platform to stand on. Everything was clean and the hosts were engaging and informative. One note - while the current address is Newtonards, it... More

Our first night's stay in Ireland was at Ballynester House and we were not disappointed! We couldn't believe our luck when we saw our lovely room and surroundings. Geraldine Baillie is the hostess and she has a great personality, very hospitable. We also had the pleasure of sharing our first "Full Irish Breakfast" with a lovely elderly couple from England...
