Hillside Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #6 of 11 Newry B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 April 2013

We stayed at Hillside for three days in the middle of April.
A really relaxing place with clean and comfortable rooms and beds.
Rich breakfast.
Blair, the kind host, made really us feel at home.
The panorama is something unbelievable.
Would really recommend it.

Stayed at hillside for three nights prior to Easter to visit family and friends. So comfy and relaxing. Lovely spacious rooms and so very clean and tidy. Blair was amazing. Lovely host and cooked a very good breakfast. Nothing was too much for him. Very attentive and made sure that we had everything we needed.
Lovely and quiet surroundings with view of the mountains of Mourne fro our bedroom window. We went into Newry for dinner one evening and the taxi fare is 6-7 pounds one way so very convenient and a good price. If you need any info about where to visit, eat or directions, then Blair is your man.
I would recommend the hillside and would certainly stay there again,
Thanks Blair for making our stay so enjoyable.

We stayed at Hillside on 2nd March. Would really recommend it. Clean comfortable room, excellent breakfast and our host went out of his way to make us feel welcome, We were attending a party and when we asked about a taxi he said he would drive us there himself which was brilliant. We will definitely stay there again.

Just back from a great stay at Hillside Bed and Brekfast in Newry. Hillside was a good choice for our get together, well sited between Belfast and Dublin and with excellent connections to the main A1. Our Bedrooms were big and clean and we all slept very well with comfy beds and the peace and quiet. The guest lounge was spacious, comfortable and a very handy facility for our evening catch ups. Breakfast was very tasty, freshly cooked to order and it set us up for the day. Blair is a great host and nothing we asked for was too much trouble. A first class stay and excellent value for money we would recommend Hillside most highly.

Room Tip: Rooms 2 and 4 had amazing views over the mountains.

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.....
