Spending four weeks touring Ireland and this was one of the nicest B&Bs we have been in. Very impressive driving up and extremely neat. Breakfast was AAA+, order the French toast. WiFi was not picking up in our room, but just went to the common room. Highly recommend staying here.

This B&B is simply gorgeous. Just driving up to it takes your breath away. It's perfectly situated overlooking Loche Eske. What a gorgeous view to look out at. The Arches is located about 5km out of town, but so worth the extra few minutes to get there. It's completley quiet and have I mentioned the view??? We were very graciously...

The Arches combines the quaintness of the countryside with the modern conveniences of home. The hospitality is friendly yet professional. Food is excellent, the rooms are clean and comfortable. A lovely view of the lake adds to the ambiance. We highly recommend the Arches of Donegal.

It is difficult to add further value to the many complimentary reviews of The Arches. As someone who spent a number of years ’in the business’ letting out a holiday country cottage, what struck me was the very high standard of the accommodation, the amount of effort that must be invested in the beautiful garden, the well-presented breakfasts and the...

Spent 2 days at Arches B&B while touring Ireland with my father - truly excellent. We had a large spacious room with a great view of Lough Eske - clean, modern and comfortable. Quiet location for a country stroll through some great scenery or just relaxing on the patio and enjoying the view. Breakfast was great - wonderful service too...

The best things about the Arches are the spacious and well-kept rooms, and the view over the lake. As soon as you drive in and see the garden, you can tell that Noreen takes great pride in ensuring the b&b is kept in great condition. Everything from the exquisite cups and saucers to the extensive breakfast menu were very much...
