Myself and my boyfriend recently had a short stay at Arkle House. The owners were very welcoming upon arrival which was lovely! Our room was very sweet with beautiful decor and the bed was very comfortable which ensured a good nights sleep! The breakfast was delicious and offered a great choice of different fruits, cereals, toast and a classic Irish... More

Had a recent short break at Arkle House. Overall experience was pleasant. Had a double room booked - but found it to be on the small side. On the whole the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The en suite shower room was small and had a strange odour. As with previous guest reviews the breakfasts served were... More

The first hotel/B+B on our round Ireland trip. We had a problem finding it but perhaps that was my problem. The greeting set up the two night visit well and we were shown to a comfortable, clean room with a good bed. Next morning we were introduced the the `full Irish` this set the standard by which i viewed every... More

Large B & B, seemed more like a guest house, as had quite a few rooms. We were travelling with another couple so had two rooms. The rooms were very well presented and clean however the bathroom was the smallest I think I have encounted throughout B&Bs in Ireland. .... So ask for larger bathroom. Bed not the best, although...

Just returned from 2 nights at this little gem. Spotlessly clean and very friendly. Breakfast wash magic.Didn't,t meet the owners as they were away, however the 2 ladies on duty ( Oonagh and Annemarie, I think ) were lovely and could not have been more welcoming and friendly. Would highly recommend Arkle House. Thanks again ladies!

Had a fantastic weeks stay at Arkle House. In londonderry for work but it seemed more like a holiday it was so relaxing and such a friendly atmosphere. Food was excellent and plentiful and a full stomach always achieved. Clean rooms and a lovely character building. You will be hard pushed to find better especially with the friendliness of Terry,...
