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
