Hillside Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 11 Newry B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 10, 2012

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 best we had in our two-week trip. Much appreciated was the pack-up of his homemade banana bread to see us through our first day's drive. We appreciated Hillside B&B and Blair's generosity so much that, near the end of our two-week trip, we called from the road and made a reservation to stay there for our last night on the road. Beautiful bookends to our journey. Nanette A

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.

Having stayed at Hillside for a week, the B & B became our home! My family and I cannot say enough about how wonderful Blair was as our host. The rooms were immaculately clean and quite spacious, and breakfast every morning was something to look forward to. The quiet surroundings and green pastures were very peaceful. We felt we were far enough removed from the city but close enough to travel easily to outside towns and sight seeing. We can't wait to go back.....

We have just come back from a fantastic break staying at Hillside B and B. Travelling with my partner and young baby we were very well looked after, our room was gorgeous, spacious and well equiped and nothing was too much trouble for Blair whom was not only friendly and welcoming but informative re the locality and local amenities. The location was perfect in quiet surroundings but close enough to all the local attractions. Would definitely stay at Hillside again ( and not only for the traditional Irish Breakfast and real coffee ~ Yummy!! )and would absolutely reccomend to anyone travelling to Newry, Thank you Blair for making travelling with a young baby - Easy and extremely enjoyable!
