The Arches offered everything we hoped (friendly host, great location and beautiful interior/exterior) for in a B&B. The inside was new and immaculate...just take a look at the shine of the floor in the breakfast/dining room and you'll see what I mean. It is a quick drive into Donegal town but is in such a beautiful, tranquil area on Lough... More

This B&B is hidden off of a winding road overlooking Lough Eske, but the drive is worth it to discover this gem. Noreen is friendly, no-nonsense and a friendly, but unassuming host aimed at making your stay perfect and unforgettable. The rooms were lovely, large and inviting, as were the bathrooms. We had a few teenagers in our group and... More

The Arches is a wonderful place to stay - beautifully presented, extremely clean, quiet, magnificent view, manicured garden and a wonderful host. The breakfast was great - especially the omelette. Only 10 minutes from Donegal town. Will certainly stay there again if I ever manage to get back to Ireland (from Austalia).

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

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
