  • I will not have a car.Just want a nice break. Are there many places to walk with my dog.I have limited mobility
    Thank you very much for your enquiry. We are a mile And a half outside Downpatrick on a very busy road but up a long private drive. Hence there are limited places to walk safely so being without a car would cause you difficulties. Thanks Nicola M-B

James & Nicola Manningham-Buller
Ballymote is our 300 year old Family Home and we pride ourselves in treating you like a proper house guest. As our numerous reviews show, we offer far from the bland run of the mill B&B experience. We aim to provide a stay that is as special and distinctive as our home. On arrival we encourage you to relax and unwind in our beautiful drawing room with a cup of tea and some home-made shortbread, before a night spent in what many guests describe as the most comfortable bed of their lives! Our breakfasts promise to spoil you wholeheartedly! A feast of local produce, home-cooked by Nicola is offered in our family dining room. Hospitality is in our bones and we love the opportunity to interact with our guests. We encourage you to use our local knowledge and have maps of the local area with marked out walks and places to visit. We are happy to book restaurant dinners, visits to golf clubs and other local attractions to make your stay even more enjoyable, and completely hassle-free. As Dog Lovers ourselves, we also invite you to bring your treasured dog and the warmest welcome awaits them.
