Part of out trip was set aside to meet up with distant relatives in the towns where our grandparents came from. One side was from Drumshanbo and the other from Kingscourt. The Arches farm was not only ideally located for this, but on its own, an amazing place. It’s a working farm on a huge property run by our host Pearl and the scenery and landscaping are right out of a scene from a postcard. We had a wonderful experience during out one night stay there. We arrived late and were able to drop our belongings and get to town just in time to make a dinner reservation. Pearl recommended the Breffni Arms hotel, and the dinner and service were spot on. I would highly recommend staying there if you are up in this part of Ireland.

This was the first B&B of 6 that we stayed at. It was by far my favorite. We felt welcomed, had a beautiful clean room looking out the front where we could see the well cared for content happy cows.

Beautiful countryside setting of a fabulous B&B! Pearl was very welcoming to all six of us and treated us to her amazing homemade scones and jam. Breakfast was equally superb! Thank you for sharing all the information about farming and your gardens with us!

My family had a wonderful stay with Pearl and her husband. They could not have been more accommodating and generous with their time and information. The rooms were beautiful and the food delicious! We would recommend anyone looking for a country/farm experience to visit with Pearl and Wilson. They are certainly deserving of their four star status! Would also love to stay at their extended stay cottage in the future!
