On the Quay Road in the countryside near Ballina, this is a first rate, award-winning B&B run by Dolores Jordan. We had a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside from the window of our second floor room. TV, WiFi, ensuite bath, lots of closet space, wonderful breakfasts, coffee and cookies around the clock, lovely decor, comfortable bed. Perhaps the best... More

We stayed for two nights at the home of Mark & Dolores with friends over a recent bank holiday - booking two triple rooms and a double. We really enjoyed the beautiful house with the amazing view onto the river. Ballina was crazy with the Bank holiday and Dolores & Mark chased around for a restaurant with place for 8... More

This is all you could want and more in a B&B. Although we only stayed for one night, we enjoyed every minute. Dolores is wonderful host and very attentive. She greeted us and showed us to our room (room 3) which had a wonderful view of the surrounding area. The room was spacious and very clean. The breakfast was first... More

Dolores is a wonderful host... What a beautiful clean home ... our double room with ensuite was warm and comfortable. Fabulous breakfast served in the most divine conservatory. What more could you ask for.... Thank you for an enjoyable stay during our magnificent journey around your wonderful Ireland.

We loved our stay at Red River Lodge. We were warmly welcomed by Dolores. Our large inviting room featured a heavenly bed and was beautifully appointed. The en-suite bathroom was luxurious and immaculately clean. Both the garden and house are beautiful. The breakfast is fantastic and Dolores accommodated us by having it read for 7.30am. I would highly recommend Red... More

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
