Stayed 3 nights, and we're made extremely welcome by Martha and her Mum. Room was very comfortable and warm. Breakfast was very good, and the tariff was very reasonable. Very quiet location, but still in the centre of the village. Will definitely go back.

Ryan's is a really good B & B which is clean, comfortable and friendly. The breakfast was tasty and the building was located only a very short walk from bars and restaurants for any other meals. It would be a good place to use as a base for touring Conemmara. I would be happy to recommend this place to other... More

Our room was tiny but it did not matter. It was quiet as there is no pub below, unique for Cong. Martha gave us fantastic service and was a joy each morning as she looked after the breakfast service. Beds were comfy and shower had good power. Great service and nice location in Cong where you can walk to all... More

Our stay at Ryan's River Lodge B & B was just perfect. Martha was so friendly and welcoming and really went out of her way to accommodate us in every aspect, from food to booking local sightseeing and activities. The location is ideal, right in the heart of the village and perfect for walking to shops, cafes, pubs, as well... More

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

Room is very small but extremely clean, at night we opened the window and listen the water running over a short waterfall and that was very... 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
