I stayed at the River Mill over the bank holiday weekend for a wedding I was attending in Downpatrick. A friend also booked with me and the hosts were more than happy for us both to book in at the same time but check out on different days. The location is perfect for a city slicker to get a breath...

After several days on the road our two nights here were just what we needed--walks up and around Ballyclander Road (more of a lane than a road), excellent dinners at local restaurants, sheep, cows, and great breakfasts by Aiden. The rooms were comfortable and quiet and the building is very interesting with an interesting history. Theresa was away but Aiden... More

We found this fab B&B on Trip advisor and are so glad we did. Such a wonderful warm welcome from Theresa and Aidan. Very clean, well appointed and very comfortable ground floor room with our own entrance so as to not disturb everyone when we came in later in the evening. Very quiet location with some beautiful surroundings. Extremely helpful... More

We stayed at the River Mill for a break from inner city pressures. Total tranquility. Great food and welcome. Lovely breakfast and very picturesque setting. Highly recommend for peace and quiet. Outstanding.

We stayed one night. Theresa and Aidan are wonderful and hospital hosts. Theresa is a handy one - she made her own table and chairs! Aidan makes a great full Irish breakfast. They recommended a restaurant nearby for dinner that was just perfect. Our room was quiet, very clean, and comfortable. We really enjoyed touring Down County. Theresa and Aidan... More

We had a really lovely stay with Treasa and Aidan in their beautiful home. Very comfortable room with great breakfast. Good choice of food and very tasty. The shower in our ensuite was amazing!! Place was spotless too. Thanks for a great couple of nights! Aidan even gave me tips on putting in our new kitchen. They have a fab... More

My husband and I recently stayed two nights. We arrived after dark but our hosts' directions were very good - it is about 4 miles south of Downpatrick. There is no identifying sign outside but it was easy to recognise from their website. It is a beautiful B&B - a complete renovation of a 300 year old mill. The inside... More

Very clean, comfortable, superb breakfast and great value - what more could you ask for? A beautifully renovated building, breakfast served upstairs on the mezzanine, most mornings I opened the balcony door just to breathe in the peace and quiet whilst the teenagers dragged themselves out of bed. Teresa and Aiden kindly 'bespoked' breakfast for everyone, catering for a range... More

Have been lucky enough to stay in some wonderful B & Bs, it will be very difficult to beat this beautiful place. The renovated mill is exceptional in every regard. Quiet, able to sleep peacefully in preparation for the touring ahead. The "Road" in we found interesting and quaint, makes one know they're in Ireland. The hosts were friendly, nice... More

Delayed review as my wife and I stayed here on 2nd July while visiting relatives locally. There are many exceptional thing about The River Mill. Firstly the renovation and sympathetic conversion of what was clearly a very run down Mill has resulted in an imaginative home in a peaceful and to my eyes romantic location.
