I visit N. Ireland every year and always make a point of visiting the Downshire Arms Hotel, weather it be for a room, a drink or a meal. This visit was a 4 night stay, and as my wife is wheelchair bound we had room 11 the disabled room. This room is ideal for disabled people, everything has been thought...

The Downshire Arms Hotel is a truly wonderful place to stay, perfect at the end of a long road trip.

Hot bath, warm room and clean sheets awaited,followed by a...

Good food and reasonably priced - must go for the steak. Good choice on the menu. Receptionist and all the staff were friendly. Although a good atmosphere in both the bar and resturant could do with a bit of decorating.

We stayed at the Downshire Arms on 14-May and 15-May. We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our stay here. The room was clean and comfortable; the bathroom was very modern. We slept quite soundly despite the fact that our room was situated above the bar. The hot breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We stayed at 8 hotels/B&Bs over a 12-day...

I have stayed here on 4 occasions now, so been in several of the rooms, all of which are spacious with generous sized en-suites. As a solo, I feel safe and welcomed by all of the staff. Bar meals are excellent with hefty portions. I felt this time so well looked after by the receptionist, young waitress who sat next...
