“B&B of our dreams”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Red River Lodge was just perfect in every way.

Dolores is an extremely welcoming hostess, and it was a great pleasure to meet her and discuss different Irish issues before and after a very good breakfast (don't miss the pancakes). She has a lot of geniume interest in her guests, and that is a wonderful feeling. She helped us a lot with planning our trip.

The room was spectacular and perfectly clean. The view from it is great, and the area is very quiet and beautiful. There simply couldn't be a better place to stay, and we wish we could have spent there more than just one night.

Given a very reasonable price, it could be the best value for money you will find in the whole of Ireland!

We stayed two nights and were very pleased with the hospitality, the clean room with our own bathroom, the nice homemade breakfast, the beautiful og relaxing garden and the hostess` effort to help us with everything we needed. Will absolutely stay there again if we are in the neighbourhood.

This review is based on a trip to Ireland from June 2nd to 19th when my wife and I stayed in 7 B&B. So there is both a comparative and an absolute dimension in these rankings. Weather was more humid and cold than normal.
Stayed there one night. Instructions to find it were a bit imprecise (last stretch much closer to 3.5 kms than 2). Parking was easy. Good location to visit Ceide fields in a day. Dolores is a very nice host.
Room was large with great view over the river. Large bed was comfortable and bathroom was fine. No need for heating as breakfast room glassed acts as heat sink. Very quiet at night. Nice lounge.
Reasonable TV selection and wifi worked fine. Breakfast was very nice: good pancakes .
Given the price and quality of service, I rank it excellent

Room Tip: Ask for room facing the river

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.
