We were greeted by the matriarch of the lodge and met her delightful daughter-in-law the next morning. Martha was a tremendous host and made us feel very welcome. We really enjoyed the made-to-order breakfast and Martha was full of great advice for our day of sightseeing. She had a wonderful suggestion on a river walk that led to Ashford Castle...

There is not enough room to write all of the good stuff about this place. Just go and stay here for yourself. The hosts are amazing. The breakfast is delicious! And the village of Cong is a hidden gem in Ireland. Just go!!! I loved it here and can't wait to go back. One night and a day in this...

This is an old style B&B in the heart of wonderful Cong. Within a short walk of the pubs and restaurants of Cong as well as Ashford Castle and its fabulous grounds this is a perfect location. Old style but with wonderful friendly hosts and an excellent breakfast. Get a taste of the traditional Irish country B&B with the best...

Ryan's River lodge B&B is located in the beautiful town of Cong, Co Mayo, Ireland. Cong has been awarded the "Tidy town" award, and deserves it! So much care is given to keeping Cong clean and welcoming. It's lovely historical buildings and traditional stone walls are adorned with every variety of fresh flowers!

We had three rooms at Ryan's River Lodge for one night in September. The service was wonderful. Perhaps the thing we used/enjoyed the most was the "family room/den". It was on the main floor, large space with lots of room for people to just read or talk. Fire in the fireplace and view to the river. It was exceptional...leather couch...
