What a marvelous B&B! The Arches is a true gem. Its central location was perfect for our itinerary. Our bedroom was so pretty and cozy - with an excellent shower! - and we loved the gorgeous views. Pearl's lavish breakfast was another treat - anything we wished plus homemade scones and jams we couldn't eat fast enough. Best of all was the warmth and welcoming heart of our hostess; Pearl's information and stories made us feel like part of the family. We live near San Francisco and are telling all our friends about The Arches. We hope to return one day and experience this wonderful spot all over again!

Extra-nice B&B a stone's throw from Arvagh. Pearl is a jewel (pun intended).

Just a wonderful experience. Very clean B&B, and pretty landscaping. Pearl was such a delight. We would come back there. Great location for exploring several counties. Wish we would have had more time there. Breakfast was excellent. Good choice on restaurant referrals. Both Pearl and Wilson very helpful. This place is a winner.

This was our second trip from Germany to Irland and the Arches is definitely one of the best B&Bs we´ve been ever stayed overnight. The rooms were big and very clean, also the bath room. The breakfast was delicious and great. Thank you very much to Pearl, she is a very helpfull and nice women. We would come back! Thank you.
