I stayed 3 nights and was delighted with the service, room, food, comfort, and location. My hobby is photography and I like to travel to different locations in Ireland and so have stayed at many different B&B's. Ryan's River Lodge has moved to the top of my list for 'Best'. I was so impressed with Martha Ryan -- energetic, friendly,... More

We stopped here today on our way to Clonbur, just for a quick snack. To say we were impressed is an understatement. The food was fresh and plentiful, the service was extremely friendly and efficient yet not 'in your face' and the premises was immaculate. We actually commented that there wasn't so much as a speck of dust to be... More

My husband and I, who are pensioners and widely travelled, stayed at Ryan's River Lodge for 3 nights in July 2014 and had a wonderful time. The food was excellent; especially the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Martha is a lovely warm person and we were welcomed with a friendliness that did one's heart good. She has a wealth of...

My husband and I stayed at Ryan's River Lodge in early June and it ended up being our favorite lodging during our entire Ireland trip. The propieters, Martha and David, were so polite and helpful with any arrangements we needed help with. Our room was cozy and extremely clean, and breakfast every day was excellent. We went on a guided... More

If you plan to visit the most beautiful part of western Ireland and the best Bed and Breakfast, then you must stay at Ryan's River Lodge in Cong. The proprietors (Martha, Brieej and David) were so kind and accommodating to us. The breakfast was excellent. The view from our room over looked the Cong river and the the running of... More

My son and I arrived at the location way later of Latest Hour to register. After calling the hostess, we made arrangements. Everything was ready for our arrival. In the morning a full breakfast and small chat made everything ok!!! ;-). TYVM!

We spent three nights here upon the recommendation of a dear friend who lives in Cong. We loved the location - our room looked out on the Cong River and couldn't have been more comfortable. Martha is an amazing host and a terrific cook!

Ryan's River Lodge was recommended to us by the great guys in "The Hungry Monk Cafe" just around the corner in Cong. And they were spot on when they said it was a friendly family run B&B. Run by Martha, who is a welcoming host and a wonderful cook 😊 My scrambled eggs & smoked salmon was gorgeous! Our room... More
