I stayed at The Arklow Bay hotel on a work trip to Arklow. There's not many places to stay in the centre of Arklow, this one is a 5 minute drive down to the water front so it was a handy choice. It's a little dated but it's comfortable enough. The rooms are okay, they are clean and a decent... More

We spent 2 days in Arklow Bay Hotel. The rooms are very basic, need some refurbishment. Breakfast also basic, tv with only few channels. Really only 3 star hotel. Nothing above that. Nice view on the bay though.

Nice spot. Lovely walk around hotel, the pool is very nice, but could do with a bit more lighting. Friendly staff and food in the bar very good. We did have a bit of a problem with noisy neighbours, but the situation was dealt with to our satisfaction, not the hotels fault. We would return.

Just enjoyed a three night Christmas package. The hotel is very well situated and a straight 1 hr drive from Dublin down the motorway. It's set in lovely grounds for walking around the lake , plenty of wildfowl to feed and on the adjacent also to the sea wall, for yet a more brisk , 'cob web' blowing walk. There's... More
