Very clean, comfortable, superb breakfast and great value - what more could you ask for? A beautifully renovated building, breakfast served upstairs on the mezzanine, most mornings I opened the balcony door just to breathe in the peace and quiet whilst the teenagers dragged themselves out of bed. Teresa and Aiden kindly 'bespoked' breakfast for everyone, catering for a range of fussy tastes. We were able to bring a takeaway meal back one night and it wasn't a problem.
A family wedding meant that we had a range of needs including hairdresser, taxis etc and our kind hosts helped in advance with suggestions for everything.
My daughter and I occupied one of the larger ground flor rooms with large shower room and own access, which was a boon given circumstances of the trip. My teenage son and daughter's boyfriend each had their own rooms upstairs each with en-suite, just perfect for their needs.
A very busy trip for us with much driving up and down to Belfast visiting family but I got the sense that this would have been a great base for a relaxing holiday. If we get the chance of such a holiday The River Mill will be top of the list for a wee return visit.
