While I didn't stay in this hotel, myself and my friends dined in the hotel bar every day during our 3 night trip to Donegal. I have to say the food was top class (from toasted sandwiches to hot dinners), the service was fantastic (in particular Debra who was always friendly, helpful and very welcoming) and I would have no...

We ate from the bar menu on the first evening and had full dinner on the second night. On both occasions the... More

A lovely family run hotel in a beautiful location, with staff who will go the extra mile to help and make guests feel welcome. Food in the restaurant was very good and there was a lovely atmosphere throughout the establishment.

The Burn's Night in Arnold's Hotel was very well organised with pipers, poem reading, highland dancing, singing, a band, guitars and flues and fanastic homemade haggis! It was a full house and definately, I would recommend anyone to go to the event next year. It was the first Burn's night in the hotel and given that it was a full... More

I was invited by some friends to the picturesque costal area of Dunfanaghy in North West Donegal. Our accommodation at Arnold's Hotel was easily found as we came into the town. Overlooking Dunfanaghy Bay, the view from the hotel was simply breathtaking. The hotel reception had a lovely roaring fire which warmed us while we were checking in. The hotel... More

The wife and I had the occasion to dine at Arnold's last week with friends. We were not looking for anything special so we were gobsmacked by just how delicious everything turned out to be. Several of us ordered the Irish Prime Sirloin cooked from medium rare to well done. Everyone was satisfied. Others had fish and were equally pleased.... More
