Stayed for 4 nights. Staff had a welcome tea or coffee on arrival. Room was clean and comfortable, quiet at night, had a good 4 nights sleep. Plenty of hot water for bath or shower. Our bags taken to the room arriving and leaving. Meals were hot and tasty, a little too much sauce on plate but that's personnel taste....

This was our third visit and we weren't disappointed. John and Nicola were excellent hosts as usual. You are always made to feel welcome. Food was excellent again. We will be back again next year enjoying this lovely comfortable hotel. Would recommend to anyone who wants a great base for touring Mayo.

Nichola and John run a wonderful operation. They put their professional, personal touch on all aspects of the operation. For any golfer, you would enjoy this place! Very helpful and knowledgeable of the golf (and other options) in the area. Our group has stayed here for years! We visit Ireland every year--staying at The Downhill Inn is a MUST!

I've been staying in Ireland for about 3 months now and The Downhill Inn was by far the best place I've stayed (out of several). Nicola and John, who own the inn, were so accommodating and generous. The inn is warm and inviting--good atmosphere, with both a restaurant and a bar that have great drinks and food for better prices...

My friend, my boyfriend, and I spent a long weekend in Ballina and chose to stay at the Downhill Inn. Because the trip was largely planned by my friend, who traces some family history back to the area, I had few expectations, all of which were exceeded by the Downhill Inn. It is a charming, lovely place situated a short...
