We arrived fairly jet lagged and were met by Delores who showed us to our fabulous room. We were in #1. It has a double bed and also a twin bed and has such a lovely view of the River Moy estuary. We very much appreciated that we could have breakfast and 9, and so didn't feel rushed at all.... More

Red River Lodge, along with the proprietor Dolores Jordan(and Mark!), far exceeded my expectations of a B & B iin NW Ireland. Based on experience previously, plus another experience after leaving Ballina to head North to another B & B in Donegal, I cannot say enough good things about them or their facility. I left feeling like I not only... More

B&Bs don't get any better than this. The house, grounds and rooms are beautiful; probably the largest, most comfortable room and bath of the 20 places we stayed in over 30 days in Ireland and Scotland. Breakfast was one of the best we had and in a beautiful solarium. Dolores was great, we talked all morning over breakfast. Only stayed... More

When I write a review I do it with the intention of assisting other travelers, no other reason. My husband and I frequently travel internationally and often stay at B&Bs. We have never stayed at a B&B that even come close to what Dolores and Mark provide. We spent one entire week there and gladly would have stayed on longer... More

Dolores greeted us warmly, showed us around her home and suggested some restaurants. The room we had was beautifully decorated and spacious. The breakfast was tasteful and... More

Dolores Jordan is treasure. She is the proprietor of Red River Lodge and she does a mighty fine job. We turned up on her doorstep one evening after seeing the online reviews for Red River Lodge.
