About Us

Situated beside the Mourne Mountains, Spesmagna Kennels has been looking after dogs for over 20 years and have built up a first-rate reputation for being reliable, flexible, and taking excellent care of dogs throughout County Down, Northern Ireland.

Established in 1996, Lyn and Jennifer Hamilton opened the kennels after a very successful 8 years of showing dogs in the UK and Ireland. Spesmagna (meaning Great Hope) is a privately owned boarding kennel located amidst the beautiful scenery of Annalong.

The Hamiltons have dogs of their own, and treat each dog that comes to stay like an extension of their own canine family. There are multiple dog walkers that come twice a day every day so that visiting dogs get plenty of walks and a extra exercise in the large garden. Each of the staff works hard to ensure that your pet´s individual needs are met and that they are safe, secure and healthy while they are home away from home.
