  • Wonderful host, gorgeous view: Geraldine was a wonderful host!! You would never know this was her first year in business as a B&B. She was so welcoming, gave us tips on where to go for dinner, what sightseeing to do based on our interests, and the best way to get to where we wanted to go. We would definitely stay here again!

  • Quiet area but within 20 minutes walking distance of the Quays: This place had everything you could wish for from a low-cost B&B and more. Really appreciated little extras like a bottle of water left at the door for my return from our night out.

  • Warm welcome, comfortable quiet base for local touring.: Lovely warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble for Geraldine to make my stay perfect. Cosy room, tea making facilities, access to shared fridge, shared bathroom with 1 other room. I was offered more than i needed and i would return without hesitation. It was a lovely safe haven to base my travels and exploration of the area.I wanted to do my own thing but maybe i should have asked for more guidance on local recommended eating places.

“Unbedingt zu empfehlen” Die erste Übernachtung auf unserer Reise durch Nordirland war ein Volltreffer: Von Geraldine herzlich willkommen geheißen, fühlten wir uns gleich wie zu Hause. Das große Zimmer ist freundlich eingerichtet, es mangelt an nichts. Sehr ruhige Lage am Ende einer Sackgasse mit Blick in die Natur. Unsere wunderbare Gastgeberin gab uns viele hilfreiche Tipps und vermittelte einen guten Einblick in die hübsche Umgebung und die nette Stadt Newry. Das reichhaltige Frühstück ließ keine Wünsche offen. Newry, die Mourne Mountains, aber vor allem Highfields B&B sind eine Reise wert- wir kommen wieder! Dann aber für eine längere Zeit. Geraldine danken wir herzlich für ihre aussergewöhnliche Gastfreundschaft.

Translated: ” Absolutely recommended ” The first night on our trip through Northern Ireland was a winner : From Geraldine warm welcome , we felt right at home . The great room is nicely decorated , nothing is lacking . Very quiet location on a dead end with a view of nature . Our wonderful hostess gave us lots of useful advice and gave a good insight into the enchanting surroundings and the nice city of Newry . The rich breakfast left nothing to be desired . Newry , a trip are the Mourne Mountains , but mainly Highfields B & B valuable will come again! Then, however, for a longer time. Geraldine We are grateful for their extraordinary hospitality .

“Un B&B à recommander !” Du fait de la configuration de la chambre, la salle de bain / WC est à l’extérieure de celle ci, ce qui peut en déranger certain (pour autant la sdb est juste en face de la chambre !! L’étage ne comportant que 2 chambres ce n’est pas non plus très contraignant)

La gentillesse de la propriétaire La propreté de la chambre Le confort de la literie L’emplacement du B&B (au calme mais suffisamment près de la ville)

Translated: ” A B & B to recommend ” Due to the configuration of the room , the bathroom is on the outside of the latter , which may bother some but as the floor has only 2 rooms this is not very binding. The kindness of the owner, the cleanliness of the room, comfortable bedding and the location of the B & B ( quiet but close enough to the city) makes this a great choice.

“My stay with in Newry was very comfortable, the house was immaculate and also very homely. Breakfast was tailored to my vegetarian preferences and delicious. Geraldine was friendly, helpful, and accommodating, going well beyond my expectations. I can’t imagine I’d have found a better place to stay or nicer person to host me. Thanks Geraldine, you’re a star”

“I had a great stay at Geraldine’s place. The room was spacious and very clean and so was the bathroom and the rest of the house. I was quite exhausted and recovering from a bad cold, a time you usually would like to be at home, but Geraldine did everything she could to make me feel comfortable and get a good rest. If I am in that area again I would definitely stay with Geraldine again, she was lovely!”

“Geraldine gave Noel and myself a lovely warm welcome when we arrived, with a very welcome cup of tea and cake. Her house is immaculate and the room we had was perfect, comfortable bed, good shower with everything we needed supplied. Breakfast was great the next  morming, and Geraldine sent us on our way with a map and suggestions of places of interest to visit. We both feel we have made friends in this house, and look forward to another visit. We can’t recommend Geraldine highly enough to any prospective visitors.”

“We had a really good time at Geraldine’s house. She’s a really nice and kind, she showed us some places to visit and gave us a lot of advice and also some documents about different places we wanted to see. Her house is really beautiful and decorate with taste. Our bedroom was bigger than planed (and expected) and the bathroom was delightful. The breakfast was also perfect and we had a short but great time. We recommend this place to everybody. Thank again Geraldine.”
