Just realised that I have forgotten to submit our review so here goes! Partner and I stayed in the Nesbitt Arms at the end of October 2013. Weather was awful, but atmosphere in hotel was warm n friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable, en-suite was clean and we had no issues whatever. As well as breakfast, we ate in... More

I lead an educational tour for American university students in Ireland for the month of January. We were passing through Ardara to learn about Donegal wool and weaving and we needed a place that would serve us lunch. Our driver contacted the Nesbitt Arms, which was not normally open on Mondays. Alan, the chef-manager, welcomed us and our business and... More

This review is long overdue. We stayed in May 2013 due to a family berevement. The hotel was very warm, clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. It was also very quiet at night, as some hotels can be very noisy places. We had an excellent breakfast in the morning and the evening meal we had was super value at €10... More

Nesbitt arms is usually very nice but this is at a time when it is open every day of the season. This time round I found that the food was not fresh and it was over priced for what we got. Advice - do not eat somewhere when they are only open at the weekends.

We had originally planned to stay at a B&B but it was not available the first two nights of our stay so the owner directed us to the Nesbitt Arms Hotel. We liked it so much that we stayed for the four nights we had in Ardara. Liam in particular was welcoming, very helpful and patient with our American questions,... More

The Nesbitt Arms is a charming older hotel right in the heart of Ardara. The hub of a vibrant community, the Nesbitt Arms' bar and restaurant really is the star of this establishment--personable service and the very best food I had in Ulster!

This is a very nice hotel for the price. I stayed there when they had the Johnny Doherty Music Festival this past September. Even with the large amount of people, they were very nice and accommodating. The lady at the check in desk was very sweet and helped me to get last minute tickets to the Cherish the Ladies concert.... More

The Nesbitt Arms is a welcoming, well run, very good value , cosy hotel in the idyllic town of Ardara. Food is very good quality with large portions of wholesome food. Staff are efficient and friendly. Rooms have been refurbished and are very good quality. Overall great place to stay with plenty of Irish hospitality and character.

We didn't get to spend the night at this hotel but did eat in the restaurant and it was fantastic. My wife had an Indian dish and I had fish and chips and both were very tasty and highly enjoyable. It hit the spot after a tiring day of activities and driving. Highly recommended.

This was not my favorite hotels on our recent trip around Ireland. The room was tiny and the person checking us in seemed a little put out at having to deal with the 12 people dumping in on him at one time. It was clean, and Ardara is a neat little town. I would not probably stay at the Nesbitt... More
