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...

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.

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.

Great location, away from the busy crowds. Blair is a great host, very attentive, nothing was too much trouble. Hillside was really clean, home from home. When we left Blair waved us off from the front door, just like an old friend would. Nice touch Blair, nearly made us cry.
