A group of 20 traveled from Donegal to meet Arklow House of Stories. We stayed at the Arklow Bay for three nights. The facilities, rooms, staff, food and atmosphere were excellent. The staff could not do enough for us and made us feel very welcome. The leisure facilities were in excellent condition and very clean. All our rooms were freshly... More

We were 6 adults& 2 children on Sunday afternoon around 3 o'clock. 2of the party were visiting from England, we were told 3 different answers to our request for toasted sandwiches& chips, eventually we were given sandwiches but for a hotel to turn away business by being so disorganised is really not acceptable, it's quite clear there is no one...

Those last photos look a little contrived to me. I go to the Bay regularly and it looks like this.( photos attached). The staff are great and the building looks very nice. They have recently made some upgrades and have a very nice new deck out onto the lake.

Due to a mishap with accommodation we had already booked for the two nights I phone the Arklow Bay hotel to see if they had 2 rooms for the 2 nights and was surprised to get the last 2. We were also even given a special 2 night rate which included dinner on one night for the four adults. We... More

I stayed here with my girlfriend for 2 nights and the hotel was lovely. The rooms were nice, spacious & very clean, exactly what you would expect from a good hotel. The staff were excellent & were very helpful in answer any questions & booking taxis for us. The food in the resturaunt was superb & there was entertainment on... More

Hubby & I stayed here for a weekend at the end of August. We had hoped it would be quieter by then, but it was extremely busy with loads of families and children everywhere! This is obviously a very family-friendly hotel, which is great if that's what you're looking for (we weren't). Despite there being signs everywhere saying children were... More

We are just back from our first and last trip to this hotel. It was very disappointing. We arrived on Sunday. The carpet was filthy and there were dying flowers in the lobby. Our room smelt damp and the bathroom stunk of urine. The room was very basic and cramped. Our view was of a wall, so close we could... More

Recently stayed in this hotel - on first impression we weren't too impressed. It looks a little dated and the leisure centre is in a separate building. The reception area is very clean and modern, and check in was efficient if a little scripted! We were in a family room and it was a little walk from the reception area... More

Myself and my partner recently stayed in the Arklow bay hotel, and thought it was fab! Although there was a lot of children it is to be expected in the month of August! The reception area was lovely quiet modern and the same goes for the bar lounge. The receptionist that we dealt with was Marion, nice but fake. Breakfast... More
