Guesthouse Árný is located in the house where I grew up. The Guesthouse used to be run by my parents, Árný & Óli, until they retired 2015. My passion is to offer you good quality accommodation while visiting our beautiful island, helping you having warm memories to take back home with you.

The Westman islands have a tremendous history over the past centuries and inhabitants take great pride of their inheritance. Mid aged locals speak of  "before and after the eruption", referring to the historic volcanic eruption occurring on this small island in the year of 1973. Check out "activities" to help you plan your time during your stay with us. In the Guesthouse´s Iiving room I have arranged a waII of handy information to heIp you get the most of your stay in Vestmannaeyjar.
