On the way home from Knock Airport, it was the obvious choice to return to the Old Arch.
The outside is appealing, and so too is the interior.
When we arrived, the staff were nice, and guided us to a table. The menu is very diverse and broad.
The soup was AMAZING and one of the best I have had. The mains were piping hot, presented well, and perfect.
Will be returning very soon.

After spending a week touring the region this year and opting to stay in Ireland, we ate in the old arch restaurant this evening and it's places like this that would make you feel proud to be Irish and proud of the excellent food we have in this country!
Where do I start or how can I begin to speak so highly about this place??it is an absolute gem of a place for a fine dining experience!my wife and I both agreed it was a place where we got amazingly fresh honest good food with the addition of some culinary class!!

The tell-tale sign for us always is the menu first impression, it didn't disappoint!everything sounded mouth watering and we struggled to decide on what to choose!
The staff were great, very efficient and we met the owner, a really nice lady, very friendly!

The atmosphere was very relaxing and the decor is really tasteful!

The food was so good we couldn't do it just here with this one review!!cooked superbly, extremely fresh ingredients and busting with flavours, made it a top treat for our holiday!!

If your in mayo, Sligo or even Galway this place is worth the trip to claremorris for, it should be recognised as an eating experience destination!!!

Thanks to everyone in the Old Arch, don't change a single thing, well done and I hope we'll get to come back very soon!!

The staff are very laxy daisy unless the owner is around. They don't seem to give much care to their regulars.
I have given the place more thana few chances to claw back a rereputation but as a regular done with the place food not cooked through you rarely get what you order done correctly. Service is very slow.
Done with this place Claremorris needs better places to eat
