lftp can do mirroring jobs like that and much more.
Yes lftp is great for that. You just do "mirror folder" and it downloads
everything in that folder. You can also do "mirror -R localfolder" and
you can upload a local folder to the FTP server. And like somebody else
suggested if it's just a folder you want to download and that's it, wget
is also good for that.
