We stayed 1 night at Ballydugan Mill, while attending our nephews wedding and enjoyed the whole experience. There was a mix up over our booking, which was resolved by the owner letting us stay in his penthouse room on the top storey of the mill! The room was huge with a kitchen area, bedroom and bathroom, with so much character... More

We stayed at the Mill for an overnight for a wedding. The food was very good and above our expectations! The staff were also great. The venue itself is lovely and our room was good, a little basic perhaps and a bottle of water in the room would be a welcome addition. Great wedding and very good hosts!

lovely greeting when I arrived and Maureen is the queen of breakfasts! Wonderful hospitality for my 2 night stay. Minor quibble is lack of wifi/mobile phone signal, but in some ways that adds to the get away from it stay! :-)

My daughter was married here last month and a most enjoyable day was experienced by all. We were fortunate to have had nice weather but if it had been otherwise this still would have been a perfect day. Maureen and Noel really went out of their way to make this a day to remember and their efforts in restoring this... More

We booked in and were on the fifth floor in a fabulous room for the wedding of our best friends daughter. The whole wedding experience was joyful and greatly helped by the enthusiastic staff who ensured all went very well. Helen and I were there the afternoon before to do the flowers with a crowd of the the brides friends... More

A Brilliant venue for a wedding. The food, the building, the hospitality, the location were all first class. It was also great that the function room bar did not hike up their alcoholic drink prices to exploit people. Well within walking distance of my home which is a plus.

My son recently got married at The Mill @ Ballyduggan and what a fantastic day we had. From the moment The Mill was booked, Maureen and Noel could not have been more helpful and flexible. As there was no wedding, the day before, Maureen suggested that they were free to go down and decorate or whatever needed doing and could... More

We had just visited Castle Ward and we're desperate for somewhere to spend the night as it was getting late. We found The Mill about 2 miles out of Downpatrick, and what a Gem! Cute and cosy old school rooms with modernised bathrooms, it's quite warm considering the walls are rock and timber! Good breakfast and very welcoming staff! Would... More
