“So Good I can forgive the cobweb on the lightshade”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

Stayed At Arnolds for the weekend. Got a large double room with sea view and large bathroom. Flat screen TV in the room with all RTE/BBC channels - the TV in the bar has Sky sports channels. The quality of the food was excellent and there is a choice of eating in the formal dining room or the bar/bistro area. Breakfast and dinner were very good quality. Nothing over fancy but good cooking and plenty of it. Customer service is of a high standard and nothing appears too much trouble for the staff. The hotel is spotlessly clean except of course for the few cobwebs!

We had a wonderful meal in their restaurant and then enjoyed traditional Irish music in their bar. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. We did have a leak in our bedroom in the due to a rainstorm in the middle of the night and the staff did offer us another room.

Room Tip: choose a room with a view of the water:)

Spent five days at Arnolds Hotel in late September while hill-walking in area. Very nice family run hotel. Good food and nice large room. But the strength of this hotel is the quality of the staff. Thank you Laura for the research on bus schedules and thank you to the wait staff for the extra touches on our anniversary dinner.
