I travelled with my husband and 11 year old daughter to Downpatrick for a wedding and we couldn't have picked a better to stay!! The River Mill is breath taking! We were so happy to see it after our long journey. It is hidden just off a tree lined road, and it has been restored beautifully. The inside of the building has a warm contemporary feel - devine! Theresa and Aidan were there to greet us with freshly baked bread and a pot of tea before showing us to our room. We opted for the family room. It was modern, spacious and so clean! The wet room is a beautiful touch. From the breakfast room, you can see the river, vegetable and flower garden - they even had a hammock! - so peaceful and relaxing it really is something else. Theresa and Aidan offered a wide selection of cooked breakfast options as well as cereal and fresh fruit from the garden -We were lucky the strawberries were in season! We decided to extend our stay and my husband enjoyed the near by golf course while my daughter and i shopped and visited the local museum. The owners had lots of information on the surrounding area and our final days were packed with a trip to the beach and site seeing around the National trust parks which my daughter particularly enjoyed. I was sorry to leave the mill to go back to my busy life and will definitely revisit.
