We needed a place that was close to the museum and settlement of Ceide Fields. This lovely setting overlooking the river was just perfect.

Dolores has built a lovely place with one of the nicest gardens.

She directed us to a pub a few blocks down the road, also sitting on the river front and we had one of our best pub meals of the trip. Not your typical pub fare.

The accommodation was spotless.

Do yourself a favor, if you are near to Ballina, Ceide Fields or Sligo, stay here for one or two nights, you will be doing yourself a favor.

This is the absolute finest room and hostess we ever had. You think you are staying in a 5star
hotel. The room and bathroom are very spacious with lots of closets and drawers to put your clothes and things away. Rooms are very clean and beds are made every day. We had a room overlooking a stunning panoramic view of the river.
Breakfast is OK in a very beautifull sunroom overlooking the garden. Dolores is a very friendly and intelligent hostess. She is very interested in her guests and you can talk with her about everything.
On top of this is that this place was the less expensive of our 4 week trip in Ireland - just unbelievable !!

We had a lovely time and were immediately welcomed to Red River Lodge.

The house is beautiful, the bedroom overlooking a stunning panoramic view of the water. Lovely breakfast with a good selection of either light or cooked options.

Dolores was a wonderful host and went above and beyond in looking after us and made our stay with a 20 month boy a pleasure. If you are going to Ballina or the surrounding area stay here. You will not be disappointed.

Stayed 2 nights. Dolores very welcoming & we were delighted with our room overlooking the river. Comfortable bed. Good breakfast eaten in the sun room overlooking the beautiful garden. Location is good - not too far from Ballina & handy for Enniscrone. Dolores happy to recommend tours of the area & places to eat. We wished we had booked a third night but will stay again when next in Ballina.

We have just come back from a weekend in Ballina for a wedding and stayed in the Red River Lodge for 2 nights. The owner, Dolores, was very welcoming and gave us a quick tour of the house when we arrived.

The house and surroundings are beautiful, we ate our breakfast looking out at the lovely scenery and the river Moy. The whole house and garden is immaculate and very well kept.

We stayed in a family room with a double and a single bed. There was more than enough room for 3 adults to get around. The room was lovely and had everything we needed. The only thing it didn't have was an iron and ironing board but Dolores was quick to ask whether we would like to borrow one.

We were asked to fill out a small form each night to say what we would like for breakfast the next day and what time roughly. There was a good choice for breakfast and the full irish breakfast was delicious!!

Our room was cleaned and our clothes, folded or hung up in the wardrobe for us.

The b&b is around 5k from Ballina and 7k from Enniscrone so does seem a bit in the middle of nowhere, but this is no problem if you have a car and if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful place to stay a little bit out of town, this place is perfect.

Overall, Dolores couldn't do enough to make our stay as pleasurable as possible and I would definitely stay here again
