“B&B of choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

We had a lovely stay at Pearl's B&B. The facilities were excellent, breakfast was just what is required to fuel up for big days of walking etc. Arches is located close to many delightful places to explore and Pearl was great with her local knowledge & advice. She even shared family photos with us making us feel more than paying guests. If you want a high standard of facilities and a warm welcome you need to stay at Arches. The view from the bedroom window was beautiful too!
.

Room Tip: The front room had the best view.

Pearl warmly welcomed us to their beautiful and restful bed and breakfast located outside Cavan near the lakes region in Ireland. Our room was very clean and cozy with great linens! It was fun to stay at a farmhouse offering great amenities with the best brown bread and homemade preserves. We enjoyed talking to Pearl and hearing about farm life in Ireland. We highly recommend thinking of spending 2 nights at The Arches so you can enjoy all the amenities on their property including tennis and fishing in the local lakes. Wonderful place to stay !

We stayed at the Arches farmhouse for two nights during our tour of Ireland. We felt that we were coming home or visiting our Irish relatives.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful , the rooms were very cosy and clean , and breakfast exceeded our expectations.
The farm animals, mini golf, tennis, game room,kept our children occupied for our hours and gave us time for some walks in the country side.
Worth seeing is the lake behind the hotel.

We were delighted here at 'The Arches' to have your family stay with us for 2 nights.
It was great to see the children enjoying themselves at the crazy golf and tennis.

We hope to see you again on your return to Ireland.

My wife and I were doing a whirl-wind tour of the northern half of the island and stayed at the Arches for a night. Pearl (proprietress) was excellent: genial, knowledgeable and eager to assure your stay at her home, and in Ireland, was enjoyable. Wonderful stop when exploring inland.

Our stay at the Arches Farmhouse was wonderful. We had some tire troubles and Pearl was very helpful during our stay. The room was very cozy & the view was amazing. If we travel to Ireland again, I would book the Arches Farmhouse for sure!

Without being biased this has to be the best B&B in Ireland! Simply the nicest people and the most helpful around from the special double yoke eggs ;-) to the the helping hand when things go wrong! I visited in aug/sep and was greeted by Pearl and Wilson the owners of the farmhouse and was welcomed with open arms, before being sat down with a cup of tea and some of Pearls home made cakes ( too many to choose from to pick a favourite!) I was asked about my journey and where i had travelled from before being shown to my room. As i travel quite a bit with my job i see all sorts of places but this is just like going home. As i mainly went as an angler first and foremost i must say this is the best kept retreat for anglers/walkers alike. I've visited quite a few in my time and none have the facilities to match the Arches such large well kept bait room with fridge, drying room, games room and not to mention the tennis court and crazy golf course!!! Simply perfect....I've booked and paid in advance for next year and i've only been left 12 hour! So if you wont the comforts of home with the best that Ireland has to offer try the arches i promise you wont regret it!! Fantastic!!!!

Room Tip: Places to eat....We ate out for 13 nights and really struggled to beat the pikers lodge fantastic fo...

Hi Wayne,
It was a pleasure having you with us for the 2 weeks.
Delighted your hard work at the fishing paid off. You are now the winner of the 'Arvagh Fishing Festival 2012'.
We look forward to seeing you again next year. Hopefully you can take home as much crystal and prize money as you did this year. :)

Just got home from Ireland whare we stayed at the Arches. The rooms where very clean and comfortable. The views were awesome! The hosts Pearl and Wilson were extremely nice and helpful. Pearl's home made marmalade and eggs fresh from the hens on property made for delicious breakfasts. Well worth the stay.
