"Great B & B close to Roslare ferry terminal."
Outstanding B&B. Breakfast is wonderful. Chris is an international gourmet chef and he can make anything from a full Irish breakfast to poached eggs and salmon. Should be named B&B and D for dinner. If you book ahead a truly gourmet dinner is available. A real plus after day of travel. Rooms are updated and very comfortable. Owners are very helpful […] and knowledgable.

"This place could be a destination"
All ground floor. Excellent facility. Easiest shower controls in Europe. The best part of it are Chris and Elaine. Watch the news in the Living room. Eat all locally grown and prepared foods at the single dining table. Visit with all the local visitors who come in regarding their dairy, their beef, etc. A chef's kitchen and a Chef, all carefully overseen […] by Elaine. Talk music, talk cars, talk world travel. The down side, it gets booked up early in the summers, with return guests. Less than two miles past Tagoat on the right. Five miles from the ferry port. Also County Wexford is rich in good things as well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The B&B was well appointed and the owners, Eileen and Chris could not have been more helpful and friendly. Chris is a great Chef and if you want to have dinner just ask them and book it in advance. A worthwhile experience. We did not stay long as it was en route but so well located for the ferry. I will definitely stay there again and well recommen […] ded.

Eileen and Chris are exceptional hosts and their dinners and breakfasts will be at the top of your culinary list for eating in Ireland. You will actually be staying in a professional chef's home. It was like visiting with friends you have not seen for a few years and were catching up on old times.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"near ferry port"
Breakfast serving time regimented. All guests ate together as in a rooming house. OK but I wouldn't have chosen to do it this way.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Near to ferry terminal"
Just ideal as a place to break a journey when using the Rosslare ferry.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was top class. The food, in particular, stands out. There is an optional evening meal for which everyone sits at a communal table so you get to meet your fellow guests. This is an interesting concept and it works brilliantly. The meal was top quality; you would be hard pushed to find an independent restaurant at the same level. The breakfast […] is also very good. Whiskey in the porridge! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our stay here tied in with grabbing the next morning ferry but it turned out to be quite a highlight of our trip. Our hosts were fantastic, friendly and with an obvious background in hospitality and cuisine, so it was a pleasure to stay and enjoy such a fantastic breakfast. We will be back for sure and wished we could have stayed another night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly and comfortable"
I stayed here overnight so I could catch the early ferry back to Wales from Rosslare dock, which is only about 5 or 10 minutes away. The people who run it were really helpful and friendly, the room was clean and very well presented, the bed was comfortable, and I'd come back on the basis the Irish breakfast alone. Great place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best there is!"
This was the best Bed and Breakfast venue that I have ever stayed in. The room was modern, clean, very comfortable and the shower was to die for! The quality of the food was superb - the owners could not be more friendly and welcoming or do more for us. The idea of one big table which we all sat around for breakfast was a great idea making it a relaxed […] and entertaining experience. Incredible value for money.

A great B&B, with the most excellent breakfast that we experienced during our stay in Ireland. We left wishing that we did not have a ferry to catch and could have stayed longer to sample the dinner menu, and to work our way through the breakfast menu!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location for ferry and very friendly hosts"

"Outstanding stay prior to Ferry crossing."
Although on the N25 and only a few minutes away from Rosslare Harbour, Archways is set in lovely grounds in a rural setting. We had a really warm reception from Eileen and the room and whole house were immaculately presented. Facilities included Tassimo coffee machine, little 'welcome' cakes, an i-phone dock and free WiFi. Eileen suggested a nearby […] pub for dinner, where the food was good and the ambience perfect. An extraordinary range of items are on offer for breakfast which can be served (if required) in good time to catch the 9am ferry. I'm only sorry we we there simply for an overnight stop. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Almost too good a place for a single overnight stay! We stayed at Archways prior to an early ferry crossing and it was a joy. Fussy son got his wifi and home-made chicken goujons, the rest of us got stuck into Chris's excellent cooking for dinner (top-notch ingredients). Nice touch to let us know to bring our own wine. Bedrooms lovely and comfortable […] with ace coffee machine and iPod dock, also the shower was good and strong. Breakfast was superb, fantastic selection (spoilt for choice!) and a helpful bacon sandwich to go for my wife, whose stomach can't handle the prospect of an early breakfast. We'd certainly stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Lovely room, fantastic breakfasts!"
10/30/14 TorontoWriter Toronto
We enjoyed three nights at Archways. The location was fantastic as a base for exploring Wexford, our room was quiet and comfortable, and the breakfasts were superb: lots of choice, and everything perfectly cooked. A highlight of our quick trip to Ireland.
"Highly recommended for families"
10/15/14 Coakley71 UK
We stayed at Archways the night before getting the ferry home, a perfect end to a great holiday. Eileen and Chris are a charming couple and made ourselves and our two little boys feel very welcome, it is a very easy place to relax. The bedrooms are fantastic, comfortable, stylish and very clean. The breakfast was delicious, and left me wishing we had taken part in the fine dining the night before! We had a minor disaster in that a favourite teddy was left behind, Eileen very kindly posted him home promptly, for which I am eternally grateful!Would recommend this to friends visiting Wexford, a real find.
"Another Lovely Stay"
10/09/14 Laney98 Scottsdale, Arizona
This was our second stay and we were not disappointed. Eileen greets everyone as if they were old friends. The rooms are spotless and comfy. Do not miss having dinner here. Chris is passionate about his food and where it comes from and it shows in the food he prepares. We love sharing a table with fellow travelers/guests who enjoy the wonderful dining experience as much as we do as well as sharing travel stories. Breakfast is mighty good too!
09/25/14 bhardyfam Salt Lake City, Utah
Sometimes the people make all the difference. Our hosts were absolutely delightful. The Mrs. (Eileen)very professional and warm and welcoming. The Master (Chris)-- a kind, funny and excellent chef-- was a great host as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Chris and Eileen. We felt like we were the long, lost relatives and we had a lot of catching up to do. Make sure you get the dinner if available as Chris is an excellent chef. (He also turned us on to the nearby Pub which was great.)
"Great Place to Stay"
09/25/14 EdBrak Magnolia, Delaware
Pretty much repeating what most others have said, we stayed here the same evening we arrived in Ireland on the Ferry. We had the two course dinner that night, prepared by Chris and enjoyed some wonderful food and great conversation around the dinner table with other guests. The place is spotless and Eileen was very friendly and helpful. They were already booked for the night we were returning (six days later) but Eileen recommended another B&B and even made our reservation. The breakfast was "outrageous" (I was able to skip lunch, I was so full).
"Only 5 minutes from the ferry."
09/15/14 gerimcc Surrey
We stayed overnight on our way back home. Had a lovely room with a great modern wet room. Everything was spotless, had a coffee machine in our room and fresh milk when needed. Chris and Eileen (the owners) are so friendly and helpful. Chris is a chef and his food was fabulous, he even makes his own sausages, which are mouth watering. The lounge has a piano and a selection of guitars, which made my husband very happy, Chris even let him play them. Only 5 minutes from the ferry and breakfast was nice and early to accommodate the timings of the ferry sailings. I would definitely go there again. Eileen and Chris are such a welcoming and lovely couple, thank you.
"Everything you need, plus gourmet food, and 5 mins from the Ferry!"
08/29/14 MrsDebraJean Penzance, United Kingdom
Archways is an excellent B&B. The rooms are clean and modern and have everything you need including comfortable beds, flat screen TV, docking station, wifi, coffee machine and a state of the art wet room en suite. The owners Chris and Eileen made us very welcome. We had also booked in for an evening meal. And we were delighted we had! The food was absolutely excellent. Far better than you would ever get in most top restaurants. Believe me, we know, we've been to many of them! The meat was home reared, the vegetables were all from their garden or neighbours garden, and Chris who is a chef, did all these fabulous ingredients total justice, cooking the most fantastic 3 course dinner in the evening. The food was beautifully presented and served, and we sat round a huge dining table under a sparkling chandelier, and had a most enjoyable evening! Wine is also available if you wish. Breakfast was equally as fantastic, with a huge selection of items to chose from, and real loose leaf tea! We ordered a packed lunch for our journey which was also delicious. Archways B&B uses renewable energy, all hot water is supplied by solar energy and supplementary heating by sustainable wood pellets. We would thoroughly recommend staying at Archways! We certainly will do in future! Everything about Archways is First Class! And if you are travelling by ferry, it is only a 5 minute drive to Rosslare ferry port! PERFECT!
"Before or after"
08/09/14 AliPatCat Surrey
Stayed over night on our return to Wales. It's very easy to get to, on the main road to Rosslare Harbour. Heading towards the harbour, turn left immediately after bed & breakfast sign, entrance is on the right. Ample parking. A few steps up lead to reception. We were greeted by Eileen and she made us feel at home straightaway. Our room was small but adequate and very clean, as was the bathroom. Tea & coffee making facilities with homemade cookies and fresh milk in a flask, tv. I loved the idea of one very large table in the dining room with guests sitting together at breakfast chatting away. Breakfast options included full irish, omelettes, porridge, cereals and fresh fruit. This is a very comfortable bed & breakfast for overnight stays or longer before or after your main holiday. It's ideally situated to drive to Rosslare strand for takeaways, bistros or a drink, even a stroll along the beach.
"Overnight stay before the ferry"
07/29/14 John W Bury UK
We stayed here for the last night of our tour of Ireland, before the morning ferry to Wales. We were made most welcome and Archways is very well appointed. Our room was excellent. Breakfast before the ferry was really good. We arrived in enough time the day before to allow us to drive south for an excellent quay side sea food dinner, but if we had stayed another night we would certainly have taken the dinner option at Archways, personally cooked. Well recommended for either an overnight ferry stop or for a longer break.
07/14/14 ChrisGandTheBean Gloucester
Archways was a first and last night of our tour of southern Ireland and it was absolutely brilliant. Without actually knowing beforehand, we had booked the superior room which was well appointed and very comfortable. The coffee and tea machine with fresh milk is a really nice touch. Chris' cooking at breakfast was superb with quite a variety of options available. We didn't have an evening meal here but if the breakfast was anything to go by, I am sure that it would have been equally superb. Ample parking is available with easy access and being only 15 minutes from Rosslare harbour, this is ideal for the ferry. Thank you Chris and Eileen for the perfect start and end to our holiday.
