Irish vacation
Overnight stay while on my Irish vacation. Excellent breakfast was included with the stay. Would not hesitate in staying at this hotel in the future.

Warm fires and great views
We stayed here off-season so there weren't many people in the town, much less the hotel but all the staff were great and the hotel was very inviting. Loved the fireplaces and the location looking out on the bay.

Arnolds Hotel, Dunfanaghy
Arnold's is a wonderful hotel. It is right across the street from the "strand" (aka waterfront) and is the BEST place to stay in the northwest coastal region of Ireland. The people are very friendly, helpful and welcoming. It is located on the "main" street through town (there is only one street) but is still a quiet, restful place to stay. The room was very clean and convenient for me as I am handicapped. I just can't say enough nice things about Arnold's!

Great location for relaxation and friendly staff
Everything was great, the only flaw was the shower, it had very poor water flow and it was slow to drain causing ponding in the tray. Otherwise very happy with our stay
