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

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.

The owners of The River Mill are two really nice people. So accommodating and just down right decent folk. We were attending a wedding at another venue. We were given our own key to a private door to our room. The room was spotlessly clean and nicely finished. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Thanks for looking after us so... More
