“Excellent B&B”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Excellent B&B on the banks of the river Moy. Beautiful house, excellent rooms and a lovely landlady. The breakfast was superb, and the breakfast room itself has gorgeous views over the garden and the river. Rooms are very comfortable and very good quality. Definitely recommend this B&B.

We live in the Ballina area and when friends ask us where they can stay for a B&B option we always recommend Red River Lodge. Delores (the proprietor) runs a first class establishment. If you want to experience the best of Mayo then get booking.

Room Tip: All of them

We stayed at Red River Lodge for three nights. We where with two couples and all enjoyed our stay. Dolores made us feel at home and in the morning we had a wonderfull breakfast. Furthermore she told us much about things to do and see. From our rooms we had beutifull views over the river. Really enjoyed our stay.

I made the terrible mistake of thinking I had booked in the other city of Ballina, and did not realize my mistake until arriving into the cit of Ballina outside Limerick. Dolores graciously accepted my apology and refunded my money. So appreciative of her quick response and compassion. A true testament of the character of the folks that run this place!

My wife and I have stayed at a wide-variety of B&Bs throughout Ireland over the years. Many were excellent, but the Red River Lodge B&B ranks very high on our list of favorites. From the very moment we drove into the driveway, we knew we were in for a great experience. The grounds and house are beautiful and very well maintained. The interior of the house is exceptionally nice and the room we stayed in was spacious, clean and nicely appointed, with a great view to boot. The best part of our experience was meeting Delores, our hostess. She is a warm and friendly person who made us feel at home immediately. Moreover, not only is she an outstanding cook --her breakfasts were outstanding -- but she is very knowledgeable about points of interest in the surrounding area and beyond as well as interesting historical facts about Ireland. We followed her advice about taking in some sites that were not on our itinerary and they were outstanding suggestions. The Red River Lodge B&B will be our first choice for accommodations the next time we are in the Ballina area.

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!
