We found Newforge House in Ireland's Blue Book. We booked at short notice. Got an immediate response from John Mathers. Arrived to a nice welcome. Only a handful of rooms (7?). Our bedroom was comfortable and well supplied. The pre-booked set 3 course dinner was excellent. The starter risotto was as delicious as we have ever eaten. Lovely breakast. Newforge... More

Newforge House is, hands down, the best place to stay. Anywhere. If you are going to be near Belfast at all, stay here. Even if it's an hour or so out of the way, stay here. Even if you can only stay on a Monday night and therefore can't enjoy the full dinner menu, stay here. From the warmth and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as a base for travel into Belfast & surrounding area. I want to go back already (particularly for the homemade granola)! As others have said, the welcome, attention paid to guests, quality of food & surroundings were all exceptional. Sylvia, Carrie & John set the tone of your stay. This really is heritage accommodation,... More

I cannot begin to praise this place enough. From the warm reception we received, the beautiful bedroom and grounds to the amazing food... it was all just amazing! We stayed for the "Taste of the Seas + Loughs" weekend where the owner/chef had prepared a 6 course tasting menu celebrating the local produce. The food was of Michelin quality...unbelievable. The...

We just finished a two week tour or Ireland. Stayed in 10 B and B's this one was the best! Great service, amazing food. Nice views from all the rooms. Parking, wifi, coffee maker in the room. But the best of all was the food!!

This was the first night on our trip--we only wish we could have spent much more time here! Everything about Newforge House is wonderful, from the historic home to the beautiful grounds to the welcoming friendly atmosphere, not to mention the great breakfast!

I planned to end my trip with a fancy night at a castle or manor house. Newforge fit in my route and definitely lived up to all my expectations. John met me at the door and took me to my room, which had been upgraded at no cost! When I got back down to the living room tea and homemade... More

This home is stunning. This is by far the most luxurious of the homes we have stayed in, but it's done in a very tasteful and almost-modern kind of way. Everything is first class here - from the decor, to the amenities in the bathrooms - we loved it. John was very friendly and made you feel right at home.... More

I stayed here couple nights in December on business and returned this week with further reservation next week. It's an absolute pleasure to meet John and the staff whilst indulging in the comfort of their hospitality. Food as per other reviews is amazing but the friendliness, comfort and attention to making your stay memorable are a match! After dinner, the... More
