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 so good that he caused the rules to be changed - how many participants in any sport can claim that? He was known to have a great way with people and stole the hearts of many across the world. In an age when television coverage was rapidly increasing the popularity of steeplechasing, Arkle was the first horse who truly became a public figure. Despite his career being cut short by injury, Arkle won three Cheltenham Gold Cups and a host of other top prizes. 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 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.
