Spent a lovely couple of days in this B&B and have nothing bad to say. We were made feel very welcome and part of the family. Chris and Sidney were friendly and chatty and made everyone feel at home. The B&B is also fortunate to be located in a real beauty spot of Northern Ireland. The house is large and airy and very pet accessible. Well worth a visit on your type of the county.

We were made very welcome at this comfortable Bed and Breakfast. The owner particularly made our Golden Retriever very welcome allowing her to run freely and meet his dogs. The breakfast was good and the accommodation clean and comfortable. The location, which was in a picturesque location , was just outside Portaferry but close enough to go there to eat in the evening. We would strongly recommend this to any dog owners.

Lovely BB with large and clean rooms with nice view. The owners Sidny Chris made us feel like at home from the moment we arrived - very warm and friendly welcoming with cup of tea/coffee and delicious home made cake. Breakfast was very rich and delicious. BB is dogs/cats friendly as owners breed three lovely very good behaved golden retrievers, willing to pose for picture even : We would highly recommend to stay in Ballyrusley BB to anyone who is looking for clean, peacefull, safe and pets friendly place to stay. Would absolutely go back again.

We would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast. The attention to detail in ensuring guests have the best stay they possibly can is excellent, and the Proprietors went to great lengths to ensure we were very well looked after and extremely comfortable., The propertly is beautiful and set a mile or so outside the village of Portaferry; transport in and out of the village was easy with a cheap and reliable taxi service recommended by the hosts. The breakfast was oustanding; an excellent range of choice of fayre consisting of local produce apart from the Heinz beans of course. There are three very friendly retrievers at the property which are not allowed to bother guests unless they wish so, but for dog lovers they are lovely pets and great fun. Many thanks to our hosts for the welcome and the lovely stay, and we look forward to returning in the future.
