Just back from a pleasant trip to Ballina. I stayed overnight in the Downhill House Hotel. The room was spacious and clean, with a flat screen tv and Irish digital channels. The bathroom had a shower and a bath. The weather was cold outside, but the room was a constantly warm.
I didn't avail of breakfast, but I did enjoy a drink in the bar. The bar is well stocked and comfortable.
It isn't the most modern of hotels, but the price and the location are ideal. It is a 20 minute walk to the centre of Ballina and is mostly paved, apart from a small stretch close to the hotel.
Most importantly the staff were friendly and helpful.
