“Fabulous all round!”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

Blair was a friendly and attentive host; with a warm welcome and good crack he was exactly what you hope for when you go on holiday. The room was clean with modern décor and lovely views and the breakfast was wonderful, with vegetarians well catered for too! Unfortunately we could only stay for one night but we would definitely recommend the Hillside B&B as the perfect base to explore the area.

I stayed at Hillside for 4 nights over the bank holiday weekend as I was visiting relatives in Northern Ireland. Blair couldn't do enough for me. What a host! He made me feel so comfortable and at home, which is particularly appreciated when you are travelling alone. The bedroom was clean and spacious with everything I needed for my stay - he even provided berries picked from the garden for my breakfast cereal! The view from the room was spectacular and the service and food terrific. Thank you Blair for making my trip so successful.

Stayed for two nights such a friendly place to stay Blair so helpful, helped us on places to eat and directions to where we wanted to go, by the end of our stay, we felt we had known him longer. We would return if ever we are in that area again. Bedroom spacious,clean everything you would want in a room even little touches cakes very tasty . B & B set in a quiet road a lovely setting to stay . Breakfast everything to set you up for the day :) .

Hillside B&B is set in a quite landscape just outside Newry. I stayed here because I went hiking on Slieve Gullion. It is very easy to find, as Blair has written a perfect description on his website. Blair is very friendly and I really felt welcome at Hillside B&B. He takes time to talk to the guests and he gave some useful tips. The breakfast was very good (with fresh fruit and a delicious hot breakfast) and there were some homemade muffins in my room. The rooms are big and the bed comofortable.

If you want a quiet, rural setting just out of Newry and a great host, clean good sized rooms and a very good breakfast then go no further than Hillside B&B. Blair made us very welcome, gave us all the directions we needed regarding an afternoon drive and suggestions for an evening meal. Overall a most enjoyable overnight stay.

Loved the size of our rooms and the location. The views from our rooms we will never forget. Thank you Blair for looking after us in such a caring way. Really enjoyed our breakfasts. We left feeling we had made a new friend.

Room Tip: Our rooms looked over the hills towards Newry - the views were fantastic
