We absolutely loved the Arches! A perfect location for getting away and enjoying life the way it should be! We only stayed one night and want to return for a longer stay! You will not find a more gracious host or cleaner B&B! Pearl's breakfast was by far the best we had while in Ireland - nothing like fresh eggs! We will be back and I will highly recommend the Arches to all who are traveling to Cavan.

Bonjour, Un excellent accueil, une prestation complète et un atout majeur pour l'activité de pêche dans le canton de Cavan. L'hébergement, les équipements et le copieux déjeuner irlandais sont d'un très bon niveau. Nous avons passé une agréable semaine qui nous conforte à revenir l'année prochaine. Les 4 pêcheurs français heureux.
