Yet again we managed to achieve a score of 9.7 in 2020.  We are the best B&B around Portaferry because we treat you and your best friend as friends not just guests. 
Kevin and Maggie welcome you to FeetnPaws; Portaferry's dog friendly B&B.  We are a family run B&B in the beautiful town of Portaferry, County Down, Northern Ireland with a difference; we allow your dog to come too.  We have four rooms (three King rooms and one with two single beds) all with en-suite, free WiFi, USB sockets, TV and coffee/tea making facilities.  We also have a guest TV lounge where you can relax.  For your best friend we have secure, warm, dry  kennels/runs to sleep in.  Unfortunately your best friend cannot stay in your room.  If your best friend gets a little  restless in the kennels maybe they would be happier in the car for the evening; we have secure parking.
