Mountnorris House
Ranked #8 of 13 Armagh B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 18, 2014

We booked into Mountnorris House at the recommendation of a local family. Our booking was made at the very last minute ahead of a fundraising event we were looking forward to attending nearby.

The house is huge, with just three letting bedrooms, so it's never going to be overcrowded. There is off-road parking and the house is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It's the kind of place you could visit with parents and grandparents and know each generation would feel very welcome and at ease.

We were a tiny bit worried that our anticipated 'getting back after the party' time was going to be a problem (estimated at 3am), but Lorna, our lovely hostess, was absolutely fine about it. Her only concern was our comfort and that we had everything we needed for a relaxing visit.

It was great to have high speed free wifi in the room, especially as this part of Northern Ireland has patchy phone connection for Virgin mobile users . We were able to stay in touch by internet rather than by phone which was a real bonus.

The sleep quality here was excellent, with a comfortable bed and a lovely large window to open wide and let in the fresh air.

We were pleased to find a well-designed ensuite and ample quantities of hot water, which it has to be said isn't always the case with a B&B. It is clear that Lorna has given a great deal of thought to making her guests as comfortable as they could be... right down to the very useful cotton wool balls and buds in the ensuite and the stash of Kit-Kats for late night snackery!

Breakfast was a hearty traditional Irish feast served in a splendid dining room with great views out across the countryside. With a variety of cereals I hadn't tried before (oooh the cinnamon apple flakes are lovely), hot toast (again not always the case in hotels and B&Bs) and a full cooked breakfast presented on antique china there was nothing not to like. Adrian did say that he would have liked a choice of egg, perhaps poached rather than fried for the sake of his waistline - but if you're going to have a fry-up then you couldn't hope for a better friend egg than these were!

The village itself is in a beautiful location and the only sound you will hear through your open window is birdsong.

So if you are touring Ireland or nipping over to see friends, family or just get a feel for the place, then I can really recommend Mountnorris House. You are in a good location here for both Newry and Armagh, and close to the border with the south and the stunning scenery of the Mourne mountains and coastline.... whilst being in the heart of some of the most beautiful Irish countryside you'll ever see.

Our visit wasn't long enough - next time we will spend a few days indulging in Lorna's hospitality.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are lovely.

This was my third stay at Mountnorris House with Lorna Walker, and once again my wife and I were not disappointed. The house itself is immaculate and the entire place very comfortable.

Lorna makes you feel welcome from the moment that you meet her, she is an outstanding host.

The breakfast is first class, you will not find better anywhere. I would highly recommend Mountnorris to anyone.

Lorna thanks again for a wonderful visit.

On our last night in Ireland this May, my husband and I wanted to stay in a country B & B, but one that was within a one to two hour drive of the Dublin airport. We were so fortunate to locate the Mountnorris House B & B, 41 Main Street, Mountnorris, Co Armagh. The house is a 200 year old beauty which has been lovingly restored. The town is small, "country" and quite. The proprietress is a wonderfully warm woman named Lorna Walker. Accomodations were spotlessly clean and comfortable, the rooms large and the breakfast delicious. And it was a quick 1 1/2 hr. trip on the main motorway directly to the airport. A great last night in Ireland.
