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

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
