Had dinner here on two nights with family. Food was good, big helpings and the menu had a nice selection. Being a coastal town, a good array of seafood. Prices were a bit high but not too bad. Had a beer another evening but it was too quiet to stay. Staff were good and no delays. Recommend dropping in.

Hotel is large but a bit dated. Food in the restaurant is nice - tasty, nice portions but nothing special. Hotel in is a wee village and in great location for visiting the Donegall coast line - marvelous beaches and vallies

I stayed here for two nights at the end of September. My room was spacious and held 2 single beds and 1 double. The beds were comfortable and i slept well. The decor of the room was out dated and the floors were very creaky. We could hear every step the room above us made also, so below could probably... More

Nesbitt Arms Hotel is an older hotel but has chracter, built in1838 and is a family run hotel. Rooms are fairly large, we had a handicapped room, they must've been full the night we checked in, but at least the bathroom was large. Just no place to put any toiletries.

Nesbitt Arms is an older hotel that has been well maintained without losing it's quirks and charm. The rooms are spacious and clean with comfortable beds.
