This was our first stay in a B&B for a long time and such a nice return to this venue. The location and views are spectacular - our room was very nice - breakfast was delicious. We even had an opportunity to talk with the cows and walk down to the lake on the property. What a treat! Thank you and good luck, Pearl!

We were traveling through Ireland, lodging at a half dozen B&B's. The Arches provided everything we were looking for---The hosts were exceptional. The landscaping was exquisite. We were looking for a rural setting and The Arches was classic rural. We cannot say enough about our stay. Thank you for a memorable get away--Alan and Therese

This is by far the next B&B we have stayed in anywhere. Charming family with unsurpassed facilities. For them to have only a 4 star rating is crass. Please increase to the maximum rating immediately. We will have no hesitation in recommending this B&B to anyone.

An absolute hidden gem. The house is nestled in the heart of farm land surround by mountains. We couldn’t have got a warmer welcome than we got from Pearl. Nothing was a trouble. We required an very early start as some of the group were attending a rowing regatta when we got up we were treated to fresh scones and brown bread. Rooms were spotless. Great outside seating area which we bailed of and managed to get the perfect moon rise to top off the top accommodation
