Had a lovely night's stay here. Large room that was very comfortable. Delicious full Irish breakfast and really kind owners as well. Great location in the middle of town and you can walk to mostly anything.

We stayed for two nights at Dufferin Coaching Inn -- it was our "landing spot" for playing both Ardglass and Royal County Down golf courses. The B&B was very nice. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast very good. We would highly recommend!

I have been stopping at the Dufferin coaching inn around 6 times a year for 2 to 3 nights for about 3 years now when on business in Northern Ireland and thought I really must take the time to give a review. The fact I keep coming back speaks for itself. Leonine the owner is always so friendly and helpful and the breakfast,s are first class.(especially the "Ulster fry")
The building is full of character with good size rooms, i have probobly stayed in most of them now,very comfortable beds, very clean, great biscuits always in the room and warm and Cosey in the winter. I was there last week and will be back again later in the year.
I would certainly recommend the Dufferin Coaching inn for either a short stay or longer.

Leontine, the owner, was gracious welcoming and kind. We had a short but most enjoyable stay in this lovely guesthouse where both Leontine and her staff made us feel completely at home and nothing appeared to be too much trouble.
Our room was spotless, the beds comfortable and the water hot.
Breakfast the following day was made with local produce and was excellent.
Having found this little gem, we shall be back!

Stayed at the Dufferin Coaching Inn with my fishing friend, during the Killyleagh Fly Tying Festival, and were made welcome by Leontine, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Our accomodation was warm and comfortable, and the breakfast was wonderfull, good quality produce, wholesome and filling. My friend and I had a fantastic time in Killyleagh during our weekend, and would highly recommend the Dufferin Coaching Inn to all who value comfort and hospitality, not to mention the "Craic" !!! Looking forward to next year already !!!

On June 1&2 we stayed in this lovely inn. The owners were courteous, helpful and welcoming. The breakfast was delicious. The pub next door was full of friendly village people and farmers who made us feel at home with their folk and blues music. The dinner next door was delicious! We highly recommend this inn for travelers who want to enjoy the Ard's Peninsula, the friendly people and who want a taste of beautiful countryside.
