Guinea pig boarding Northern Ireland

Why choose our guinea pig boarding service in Northern Ireland for your pet?

When you look to go on holiday you want to feel relaxed knowing that your small pet is getting the same care as anyone in your family. We understand this feeling as it is what drove us to provide boarding facilities for the smallest pets who need that extra special guest treatment and a holiday of their own.

We have no adjoining boarding kennels and cattery, only boarding for rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, small birds, and chinchillas, so you can rest assured there are no loud noises to concern your wee piggies during their luxury stay with us. We have soft lighting, warm insulated, heated suites, cozy bedding , hay trays with foraging, castles, and tunnels. Everything they could want for a 5* small animal holiday!

We are a family-run business and have been pet owners all our lives, so we understand the need to give your pet the care it deserves so you can enjoy your own holiday with zero stress.

We promise, that with many years of experience with small animals in our care, whilst you are away on your relaxing trip, we will spoil your guinea pigs with of love, attention, chin tickles and head rubs that you may in fact even hear their happy 'wheeking ' from your own holiday!

In fact, they will be so well looked after they may want you to go away more often so they get to come back sooner!

All our visitors can avail of our spacious 5ft long Guinea pig suites, with lots of space for popcorning. They have luxurious, super soft, deep filled, absorbent bedding from our fabulous supplier CozicreationzUK (important for their delicate feet), Matching snuggly tunnels for nap time, and even mini sofas with itty bitty cushions for them to totally chill out on!

We add in ginormous hay mountains sprinkled with scrumptious foraging (including dandelion leaves, a flower and herb mix, apple slices and birch leaves, from Bunny Bistro) for them to nibble on.

Little pods in the sleeping area make for a great nights sleep.

Chew toys to keep their teeth healthy and mind busy.

All suites are completely secure, within a heated environment, and are treated to daily exercise, a little grooming if that is their taste, and also take some delicious fresh vegetables as daily treats.

Well, who wouldn't want to have such a service on arrival at their small animal boarding or luxury pet hotel?

What other small pet boarding do you offer apart from Guinea Pigs?

We provide a home-from-home luxurious boarding setting for a variety of small animals, such as rabbits, hamsters, and gerbils and small birds. We ONLY board small animals to ensure a wonderfully relaxing, peaceful environment. We play classical music in our suites to really bring the zen!

Do you have to be from Northern Ireland to book with us?

Many owners, for peace of mind, enjoy bringing their pets with them on their travels and we would be more than happy to host your family member for a few nights while you enjoy your own activities.

Do you need insurance for our pet before we can book accommodation?

There is no need for insurance for your small pet prior to any bookings. Having your pet insured is totally the decision for the whole family but would not stop any booking with us.

In the unfortunate situation that should your Guinea Pig become, or display symptoms of illness, we will take action immediately and make contact with our own vet for advice or an appointment for assessment and treatment if necessary. We will always contact you directly to discuss your wishes first. If we cannot get in touch with you, we will always put your pet first and if medical help is required, we will always make the decision to have them seen by our vet. Whilst in our care, they become part of our family, and we love them like our own pets and we promise to always give them the very highest standard of care and attention.
