Built in 1718, this former flour mill is in the heart of the rural Lecale region of South Down, Northern Ireland. Fully restored by the previous owners in 2008, The River Mill is now a boutique reading and writing retreat. 


We offer Individual Residencies, workshops, and can serve as a meeting space for arts organizations.. Our 5 en-suite bedrooms, communal spaces and garden are designed with the needs of writers and readers in mind.
