On our 3 weeks traveling around Ireland we stayed in a variety of accommodation from 1st class hotels to b&bs that were quoted as 5 star. Of which some were debatable. So I had a lot to compare the Arches to. This was the best place we stayed in Ireland. Everything was spotlessly clean. Our room was beautifully appointed and the breakfast on offer was varied and delicious. I had the French toast every morning. It was so good. As for the view over the lovely manicured gardens to the lake it was just stunning! I thought at first it may have been a little far out of Donegal but it certainly wasn't. It was an easy 10 drive in. It was actually lovely not to stay in the centre of town and just soak up the amazing Irish countryside. As for the host Noreen she was absolutely

It's really impossible to find a note out of tune in this beautiful B&B, which delighted us from every point of view: the enchanting position overlooking the Lough Eske, the spacious room with a very comfortable double bed, the excellent breakfast, the elegance and care of our host, Noreen. Moreover, the residence - despite being in an absolutely quiet and relaxing location in the open countryside - is just 10 minutes drive from Donegal Town and is an excellent starting point for exploring the County of Donegal. If you are lucky enough to find a free room, do not hesitate to book!

My wife and I, along with our grown son and his wife, recently stayed three nights at Arches Country House while visiting Donegal County. Under the watchful and caring eye of proprietor Doreen, we were pampered with great rooms, terrific views of Lough Eske, delicious breakfasts, pastoral surroundings, funny stories, and good suggestions for touring the area. The home is beautiful and immaculate and the rooms are lovely and well-appointed. Though a bit off the beaten path outside Donegal town, the drive to Arches (and its gorgeous surroundings) is very scenic, making the short drive very worthwhile. It's the perfect location for seeing the many beautiful attractions of Donegal. We would definitely stay here again should good fortune bless us with a return trip to the area.
