I visit N. Ireland every year and always make a point of visiting the Downshire Arms Hotel, weather it be for a room, a drink or a meal. This visit was a 4 night stay, and as my wife is wheelchair bound we had room 11 the disabled room. This room is ideal for disabled people, everything has been thought... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and I can honestly say I cannot fault anything! The food was fantastic, the best I've had in a very long time. The room, bar and restaurant are also fantastic. The staff were lovely and friendly and very welcoming :) I will definitely be staying again when I come back to Banbridge and I... More

The Downshire Arms Hotel is a truly wonderful place to stay, perfect at the end of a long road trip. After being pillion on the motorbike for hours, having departed the Giants Causeway at 11am, we arrived at Banbridge to take Photo No. 24 in the Irish Photo Rally 2014. Hot bath, warm room and clean sheets awaited,followed by a... More

Good food and reasonably priced - must go for the steak. Good choice on the menu. Receptionist and all the staff were friendly. Although a good atmosphere in both the bar and resturant could do with a bit of decorating.

We stayed at the Downshire Arms on 14-May and 15-May. We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our stay here. The room was clean and comfortable; the bathroom was very modern. We slept quite soundly despite the fact that our room was situated above the bar. The hot breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We stayed at 8 hotels/B&Bs over a 12-day... More

I have stayed here on 4 occasions now, so been in several of the rooms, all of which are spacious with generous sized en-suites. As a solo, I feel safe and welcomed by all of the staff. Bar meals are excellent with hefty portions. I felt this time so well looked after by the receptionist, young waitress who sat next... More

Would just like to say a massive thank you to the Downshire Arms Hotel staff and management for making my husbands surprise 60th party such a success. From the moment I enquired about the party until the last guest had left the staff bent over backwards to ensure that everything ran smoothly and they even managed to keep me calm... More
