We are ready to welcome you back safely for a staycation in Blackwell House.

Join us for a gloriously remote staycation in our comfortable and pristine boutique country house nestled in the deep rolling countryside of County Armagh on a peaceful and seemingly private winding country road. You can look forward to a tranquil and idyllic escape, feel revived in the fresh countryside air with plenty of space to unwind in our peaceful gardens or wander along county roads enveloped by a big sky and rich farmland without seeing a soul.

Home and locally produced food is at the heart of Joyces kitchen. Enjoy a bed and breakfast stay or join us for dinner with menus changing daily based on availability of hand picked local ingredients.
Choose to dine in a dedicated private dining space or in the seclusion of your own room. 

You will feel relaxed and rejuvenated after a great nights sleep in a truly comfortable bed in one of our beautifully designed boutique hotel rooms. 

Enjoy genuine hospitality, we treat our guests like family - it's our home. Expect attentive and thoughtful service throughout your stay while letting us take care you. 


Here at Blackwell House we continue to follow the latest advice and recommendations from the Government, National Tourist Organisations of Great Britain and of Northern Ireland.

We have been informed in detail on essential preparatory and prevention measures and We have implemented all necessary preparatory and prevention measures and have been awarded the ‘Good to Go’ certificate from the National Tourist Organisation of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

As normal we take standards for hygiene and cleanliness very seriously and are taking additional steps to ensure the safety of our guests and staff.

On a daily basis, we are working to ensure that we meet the latest guidance on cleaning.

We only have six rooms, we don't have a lot to manage so we do this very well. 

Your stay at Blackwell House is meant to be a genuine escape from the lockdown and we will very soon have some exciting packages to share so watch this space. 

Stay safe with us at Blackwell House.
