Visited here during the Jazz & Blues festival. A great place to base yourself for the weekend with some great shows. The loyalty point are an added bonus if you frequent often. The beer garden is well situated to get the best of the sun when it's out

We stayed for one night and had a lovely room overlooking sea. We arrived after 5pm on sunday and we had scones tea jam and cream (lovely) which kept us going until 8pm when we had a delicious meal in Seascapes restaurant. The scallops and turbot were first class
The room was very clean comfortable and warm especially since it was windy cold and wet outside. Staff were excellent and very friendly and were so pleasant and helpful. Can't praise them enough
I would recommend staying at Arnold's if you are going to Donegal and Dunfanaghy is the nicest town in that area.

Room Tip: Ask for superior room overlooking bay as it is very good value

Thank you for your very complimentary review on your recent stay with us. It is very rewarding to learn that we are providing customers with a warm friendly welcome coupled with good food and service. Dunfanaghy is a very pretty seaside village with lots of craft shops, art galleries and places to eat. Killahoey Beach is just a stroll from the hotel and is overlooked by Horn Head - just perfect for a relaxing walk. It is very much appreciated by us that customers take time to let us know about their holiday experience with us. We look forward to welcoming you back soon to the Arnold Family Hotel.

My husband & I stayed here in August with my Mum. The staff were very friendly & helpful. Mum is hard of hearing & registered blind so they made a note at reception so that in case there was a fire somebody would go to her room & help her. In the restaurant the staff were all helpful especially Marie. I cannot eat gluten & dairy & they made eating in the restaurant a pleasure.

The hotel could do with a faceover. Very dated. Same old pictures on the wall with fish in glass cases. On the other hand. staff very friendly and nothing any trouble. Food great. Try their mussels they are to die for.
