The Arches was the first B&B we stayed at in Ireland. It was also the absolute best. All three members of my party agreed. Noreen was able to accommodate my mother’s mobility issues, the location is breathtaking, the breakfast was the best full Irish I’ve ever had, and her coffee was better than I tend to make at home. I’m not sure I could find a way for her to improve. We were constantly comparing her hospitality throughout our trip and The Arches won our every single time.

We saved the best until last! After traveling around Ireland for 3 weeks this was our last stop. It was so clean and very well appointed. The view over the lake was so tranquil, just what you need after a day touring around the area. Breakfast was excellent. The host Noreen was extremely charming and most welcoming. It was a great choice to stay out of the tourist area of Donegal. The only thing I could fault was that it was a little hard to find at first but once we got familiar with the road it was only 10 minutes out of the centre of Donegal. I just wished every other b&b in Ireland had been this good!

We thoroughly enjoyed our night at this beautiful B&B. The room was spacious with the most gorgeous, tranquil views. The house is located on a quiet country lane that was just perfect for a leisurely walk. Breakfast was wonderful, and our hostess was so friendly and helpful. Will definitely return.

We spent our first night in Ireland here and it really set a high standard for the rest of our trip. The house was lovely, the rooms spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great and Noreen is the perfect hostess. But the best part has to be the view. Absolutely breathtaking!! We definitely would high recommend!

We enjoyed the accommodations and our hostess so much we extended our stay for an additional two nights! This was our favorite place to stay during our time in Ireland. The accommodations were extremely comfortable and clean. Breakfast was superb and the coffee was the best we had in Ireland! After a long day of site seeing and exploring the County Donegal area it was wonderful to come back to such a comfortable and accommodating place. The best part of our stay though was our hostess, Noreen. What a gem!
