“highly recommended- great place to stay”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

Great clean and roomy rooms, ensuite bathroom ( with wet room!!) helpful and lovely hosts to boot. Breakfasts were lovely. Good value for money. Aiden can also organise lifts and pick up so contact prior to staying if not in a car. Very helpful and made our stay so much more relaxed as a result.

Room Tip: try the potato bread! :)

We stayed for 2 nights (only meant to stay for 1 but couldn't tear ourselves away) and I can't say enough good things about this place! A beautiful building, great hosts, lovely rooms, delicious breakfast, excellent value for money. I've been in many hotels in many countries, but I have never stayed in a cleaner place, you could literally eat off the floor (if that takes your fancy!).Teresa and Aidan have done a wonderful job restoring this beautiful old mill . Ask where they got the lovely wrought iron chairs in the rooms..!
My only concern in recommending this place so highly is that it won't stay a hidden gem for long, and I may not find it as easy to get a room next time

Ok this place is a little of the normal path but it's well worth the stay. Make sure to call and get verbal directions because our GPS had us in a different place. The breakfast was unbelievable. We enjoyed the hosts and the rooms were beautiful. Super great place!!!!

It's a bit hard to find, even with GPS because it's kind of in the middle of a field :-) So don't even consider it if you don't have a car. Very pretty b&b, nice room design, caring owners - welcoming cup of tea/coffee with a muffin was a good bonus. Our room had exit straight to the street which was great, because we came back after party and wouldn't be great to awake all the house.

we stayed only one night at this b&b and were very happy with the entire experience. It was a little hard to find but well worth it. It was down a narrow country road but no traffic.

We were greeted on arrival by the owners with beautiful scones and tea. We stayed on the bottom floor in a very large bedroom and "wet" room.

Breakfast was great with homemade produce. The hosts have spent a lot of time on renovating the old mill and have done a great job. Very accommodating hosts who also recommended a local pub nearby for dinner that night as we had had a very long day. The dinner at the pub was excellent.

We stayed here while over for a wedding. The location is great- quiet countryside but close enough to town that you can go to restaurants etc. We were really impressed with the modern, clean room complete with king size bed and power shower and the owners could not have been nicer. The breakfasts provided were fantastic.

My husband, myself and our two children, ages 3 and 9 stayed here for two nights for a weekend away to discover the area of Downpatrick. From the moment we stepped into Aiden and Theresa's beautiful home, we felt like family, a warm welcome along with warm home made scones and jam awaited us. They had even gone so far as to dig out a couple of dvd's for the kids to watch, not that we needed them in the end as we had so much to do thanks to their thoughtful and spot on recommendations of local attractions. The River Mill was beautifully presented and designed, our family room with two large double beds and very large shower/wet room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean with the added bonus of having our own door to come and go as we please. Breakfast was a feast fit for a King (and Queen!!). We've stayed in B&B's before with the children but nowhere with such a warm and friendly atmosphere and yet still able to have our own space. We are definitely planning to visit again, Thank you so much for a lovely experience. Cathy, Nick, Sophie and Jack.
