Trip with my wife, my father and his girlfriend. The B&B is in the beautiful countryside not far from Newry. The rooms are modern and cosy. The breakfast is perfect. Blair is really friendly and available.

Room tip: Ask one room with view on the countryside

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.

Room tip: Just tell Blair want you need.

Stayed at Hillside with my wife Sam and we found it to be as we expected after researching it on the internet.
Blair the owner was very helpful in arranging our stay and even texted us to ensure we were okay as we delayed in arriving (which i did not expect but was most appreciated). When we arrived we were welcomed and given everything we required to ensure we had all we needed. The rooms were spotless and had everything that we required for our stay. The admenities were fantastic and although we were only staying one night we have agreed that we will be returning when we go back for a longer stay.

Breakfast was more than enough for us both and helped set us up for the day visiting family.
The location is fantastic with views of Slieve Gullion mountions and taxis are able to find the B&B easily for pick up. Beds were very comfortable and rooms very spacious with plenty of room to relax.

I would reccommend Hillside to anyone who wanted a warm welcoming place to stay with home comforts for everyone and the right location to sightsee around the beautiful Mourne mountains and surrounding areas.

The owner made us feel more like family than guests and spoilt us. Unfortunately our trip was only short. However we intend on returning with more family members and book the whole place and definitely stay longer than a weekend. We received a phone call shortly after our arrival time just to make sure that we were not experiencing any difficulties in finding our way around. On our arrival the owner greeted us on the car park and helped us unpack the car and carried our luggage into our rooms. Honest and friendly all the way. Loved it and would recommend although you do need a car as it is set in a hillside.

Room tip: Ground floor rooms are available if you have difficulty with stairs. The owner will do everything he can to make sure your stay is a comfortable one.

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.
