We have been going back to Noreen at the Arches for 19 years now and cannot recommend it highly enough. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spotless, breakfasts excellent and the whole house welcoming. There are wonderful views of Lough Eske and beyond from every room and it is a good base for touring Donegal and the North West. You will... More

A stay at the Arches is just what we needed after a long day if driving! We needed a break from small beds, small bathrooms and this place delivered! Picturesque setting, comfortable bed in a luxurious room with a beautiful bathroom, we did not want to leave! The grounds were impeccable and the owners take great pride in this property.... More

Noreen our host made sure that we had everything required to make our stay as comfortable as possible and the breakfast was excellent. Our room was large and airy... More

On our trip to Ireland with our daughter and son in law, we stayed at this lovely home and our hostess was Noreen. What a very helpful lady, she went over and above what we expected. She made lots of phone calls to try and get us accommodation for our next port of call. Her home was really special with... More

Family Touring holiday. Stayed at The Arches for one night. Noreen made us most welcome when we arrived. Our room was very homely & comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful. Noreen tried her best to help us find accommodation for the middle of the week. Will deffinately return. A beautiful home with wonderful views where we were all made very welcome.

Discovered this B&B on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. Our booking was made quite late in the day and room was held for us even though our arrival was also late. The room was really clean and ensuite was first class. Breakfast was excellent with a very good choice. View from the dining room is lovely and the property... More

We stayed three nights in this superior B&B in a family room with the magnificent views over Lough Eske. There were comfortable armchairs by each of the windows. The rooms were immaculate, very bright and with great attention to detail. Breakfast was delicious with very generous portions, the kippers superb and lovely coffee. Noreen was a delightful hostess. Although the... More
