This is a very nice B&B that is located about one kilometer from the downtown section of Kinvara. We stayed two nights and had a wonderful drive around the Burren. It is close to many beautiful sights such as the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands and Dunguaire Castle. And Galway City is a short drive, if you care to...

Wonderful experience in Kinvarra. Ann is a gracious and lovely hostess who made our stay very comfortable. Home is clean and well maintained and our room was well suited for my husband, granddaughter and myself. Ann not only suggested a nice place for dinner but also took care of finding us a place to stay in Shannon, our next stop.

Ann was very gracious and welcoming. Suggestion of The Pier Head for dinner was wonderful. Breakfast was delicious and very filling. Room was very...

Nice clean spacious ensuite rooms and a warm welcome with tea and cake after a longish drive. Great. Just out of town, backing onto fields. They have wifi now. Hearty breakfast sets one up for the day. About 25 mins south of Galway so a good place to stop when drinking the Wild Atlantic Way.

Very friendly host. Location is quite out in the green. Therefore be prepared that you only have very basic mobile signal since there is no WiFi. Breakfast was good as usual more than you can eat. Can recommend

We spent three nights with the Smiths at Arches B&B and found it to be spotless and comfortable and very deserving of its four star rating. Breakfast was consistently great and Ann was the quintessential hostess. I had left some personal belongings behind and Ann tracked us down at our next location to make arrangements for me to retrieve my...
