The Arches is the very best B&B we have ever stayed in, and this was our third trip to Ireland. What a wonderful place in every way. Our room was large and lovely, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. The setting is amazing - gorgeous views everywhere we looked. The breakfasts were delicious, and our hosts were helpful and gracious. We highly recommend the Arches, and we hope to return.

I had been reluctant to stay at a B&B because of past experience but the Arches changed my mind. Pearl is dedicated and welcoming, the room was spotless, comfortable and private. We were welcomed with hot tea and scones, breakfast was one of the best i have had while touring Ireland. The rural setting is peaceful, beautiful and for an aspiring painter, ideal. Thanks Pearl, we appreciate your hospitality.

Wow! Wow! Wow! What a beautiful B & B. The location is great, the amenities are many, it's close to a lot and Pearl could not be any more helpful and informative than she was. What a wonderful experience.
