The Arches Country house is an excellent place to stay and is located just 6km outside of Donegal. The gardens are a thing of beauty and the house is equally attractive. 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

A very beautiful inn in a lovely country setting. Convenient to Donegal, a lovely town, and Slieve League, breathtaking scenery. Hostess is great - very kind, helpful, great sense of humor. Comfortable modern accommodations and really good cooking!

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

We stayed at Arches Country House for three nights and used it as a base to explore County Donegal. What an amazing place! It was a little hard to find initially as it is really off the beaten track, but still only 10 mins drive to the town of Donegal. The B&B is in a stunning location overlooking beautiful Loch...

We have stayed in several B&Bs on our trips to Ireland (which have been a lot) and this is one of the best B&B we have ever had! The rooms are spacious, lovely decorated and I have never seen a clean B&B like this! The bathroom is modern and provides shower gel, shampoo and lotion. The view from the bedroom... More
