A Working Irish farm


Welcome to The Arches Bed and Breakfast

Farmhouse accommodation



Located in the heart of the Irish Lakelands and at the centre of Drumlin Country, The Arches Farmhouse in Cavan is the perfect getaway destination in Ireland. A paradise for anglers and land and water based activities with its low rolling hills it is a place to lose yourself in nature, explore the unspoiled landscape and the historic towns and villages of the borderlands

With so much to do on site, Pearl and Wilson Kells will ensure your holiday is simply unforgettable. The Arches Farmhouse is a working Irish farm and from the moment you arrive, you will feel the warm welcome and hospitality offered by the Kells family. The smell of Pearl’s delicious home baking will instantly draw you to her lounge where Pearl serves freshly brewed tea and her fresh scones with jam and cream. This is just a prequel to the fabulous full Irish breakfast that Pearl serves guests each morning, made to order just the way you like it!

After breakfast take a relaxing walk down the farm lane to the lakeside, where you will be amazed by what you see, in the centre of the lake an ancient dwelling known as a Crannog. If you’re feeling adventurous you can even use the family boat if you want to see a bit more of the lake.

Refresh your senses with a stroll around the landscaped panoramic gardens and explore the family farm where you can watch the animals grazing and the farmer at work.

Make time for a game of tennis or crazy golf in the afternoon, both are available for guests on site and if the weather is a little rainy, why not make use of the games room in the farmhouse where you will find a pool table, darts and a selection of board games. Your hosts will be happy to recommend the best places to visit off the beaten track so that you can tour Cavan like a local.
