Staff couldn’t have been more helpful, they were very welcoming and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. Although they didn’t have a room with a full-on sea view, they found us one with a side view - just spectacular, and even better as you walk out the front door of the hotel and look across the bay. The evening meal in the Bistro was memorable for the quality - and quantity - of the fresh sea bass, as well as my partner’s Chowder - and the fire in the lounge was equally welcoming.

Very comfortable and clean. We had a small twin room but we had a fabulous view. Bed comfortable. Great for our one night. We took a beautiful walk along the water leaving from the front door of the hotel. We ate our tasty dinner by the fire in the bar. So cozy! Fun Irish music at a bar just down the road. We enjoyed our stay here. A perfect Irish village hotel!

As always, Arnold’s Hotel provided the perfect atmosphere and experience - I love this place! My room was large, clean, warm, and overlooked Sheephaven Bay. Just stunning. The food was excellent at breakfast, lunch and dinner, the wine was good, and the staff was very welcoming and always friendly and helpful. I’m looking forward to coming back.

Stayed recently at Arnolds Hotel and had an absolutely amazing stay. From the moment I walked in to the moment I left the Management and Staff were absoluely superb. Nothing was a problem and all the staff were friendly , helpful and could not do enough. All the major attractions are a short drive away. Sue provided a map that was so helpful to exactly where I was looking for. Aidan was an absolute gent and always made time no matter how busy he was. I most certainly will be back and couldnt recommend high enough.
