“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed February 17, 2012

We were in Ballina for the wedding of a relative so we decided to extend the visit into a real Ireland Vacation. We selected The Red River Lodge based on the Four Star rating by AA, as well as the friendly response to our inquiries by the proprietor Dolores. We were not in any way disappointed.
The house is lovely, and the grounds beautiful and well kept. The first thing to strike us was the quiet and the smell of the fresh country air. I wish we could have bottled both!
Breakfasts are traditional Irish with some modern additions, and everything was delicious. The host is attentive and extremely accommodating.
Rooms are spacious, well lit, astonishingly clean, and very comfortable. You won't want to leave!
The views of the Moy River will set up some wonderful photo opportunities.
It's about a mile out of town (2KM) so you might need a car if you want to experience Ballina, but there are taxi services available in town.
If you are movement impaired, be aware that this is a home and may not be wheelchair friendly, but there are ground level rooms available.
Prices are very reasonable.
It's not open year round, but when it is, you could not do better than to stay here!

Room Tip: The top floor rooms on the river side have the best views.

Red River is located south of Ballina by the Quay river, out away from the city. If your looking for peace and quiet this is the place. Also the home itself is so beautiful, with wonderful views, you will not find a speck of dust, rooms are immaculate. Delores is a very gracious host, she will make you feel right at home.

We had a wedding nearby and found Red River Lodge on Trip Advisor. The rooms are impeccably furnished and decorated, and the place has a relaxed, comfortable and cosy feel to it. Our hosts were always nearby to help out with recommendations on where to eat, emergency safety-pins, ironing board and a friendly chat. I highly recommend Red River Lodge and will definitely come back if I am in the area again.

Red River Lodge for us was the perfect B&B - The room was clean and well decorated with a beautiful river view, the breakfast was delicious and the host made us feel at home, all that in a very reasonable price.

This was a fabulous bed and breakfast. We found our hostess Delores to be very friendly, welcoming, and very kind to us as well as very helpful in guiding us to where we should go, and provided us with information. Staying at this bed and breakfast definitely enhanced our trip to Ireland. Delores's Irish breakfast was so wonderful and the scenic views and landscaping was absolutely breathtaking!! Wonderful Irish hospitality, very accommodating, clean and welcoming. I would highly recommend this Bed and breakfast for anyone traveling to this part of Ireland. Delores is wonderful, and her bed and breakfast is just as equal her hospitality! Thank you Delores!

This place was phenomenal; from the food to the room and especially our hostess, Dolores. The room was comfortable, welcoming and very quiet. We have been traveling with a 13 month old boy and Dolores not only welcomed him, but was very understanding with his little fits and sometimes very loud acoustics in the mornings while playing. In addition, Dolores gave great suggestions on places to eat and things to see in the area. Ballina is a great place to see and use as a base for other destinations, while the Red River Lodge is by far the best place to stay.

Room Tip: Visit their website and send Dolores an enquiry

I have booked B&B's, hotels and self catering cottages, in the Ballina area, every year (or more) since moving here in 1995 for friends and family to visit.

Red River Lodge is, by a far mile the best of these we have tried in that time. From the initial booking to arrival and departure Red River offered the height of service, comfort and cleanliness. The setting and quietness just adds to this truly fabulous place.

We will be booking more family in friends here in the future without a second thought and I strongly urge you to book here, if you are visiting Enniscrone, Ballina or nearby areas .

Room Tip: All rooms are superb.
