We are delighted to announce our newly refurbished Arkle Bar & Restaurant, cosy plush 1920s decor featuring photos and artwork of Arkle.
Arkle (19 April 1957 – 31 May 1970) was an Irish bay gelding Thoroughbred racehorse.
Arkle was known to have a great way with people and stole the hearts of many across the world. Because of Kildare being famous for its many horse racecourses, we've named our hotel bar after its most famous horse who was known to be extremely gentle, full of old charm, and great spirit.
From early morning to late at night, Arkle Bar & Restaurant offer guests a variety of culinary experiences. We use the finest, freshest locally grown produce, premium quality, free-range meats and the freshest seafood from the Island of Ireland.
If you would like to book a table of 10 or more, please call 01 629 0909 to book as we will need Credit/Debit card details to secure your reservation.

We stayed at the Hotel from Thursdays 25th to Saturday the 27th of July. We had a great time, our 3 children absolutely loved it and really enjoyed the kids club and the pool! The hotel staff were brilliant and went above and beyond to make sure we had an enjoyable stay! Looking forward to staying with ye again soon xxx
Our stay was brilliant and the staff were first class. The facilities especially for our kids were up there with the best places we have stayed before. I would not hesitate to recommend the glenroyal to any other family and should we stay in maynooth in the future we will definitely be staying at the glenroyal.
Great staff who work really hard to make you feel at home and so welcome, almost like family.
