Arnold's Hotel

Situated at the entrance to the picturesque village of Dunfanaghy overlooking the spectacular scenery of Sheephaven Bay, Arnold's Hotel is located in a traditional holiday area that many will have a soft spot for, and some will recall family holidays spent in the famous old Arnold's Hotel itself.


The hotel has been in the same family for three generations and, with a welcoming fire and friendly staff on the reception desk, it immediately conveys the warm and relaxing ambience that is so special to traditional family-run Irish hotels.


Rooms are old-fashioned but everything works, they're comfortable and they've managed to fit a full bath into almost all the bathrooms - and the number of contented guests milling around, or enjoying a bite to eat, in the traditional Whiskey Fly Bar in the evening suggests that things are just fine as they are, thank you.


This beautiful area is known for activity based holidays and the hotel offers special interest breaks - walking, painting, fishing, golfing, cycling etc - with staff very happy to help you to plan the perfect holiday to suit your particular area of interest.


This is a special hotel in many ways, and it's no wonder that guests so often return.
