Always stop here right in the middle of town easy to walk to where ever you want to go, rooms are lovely and the staff are so helpful and friendly really can't do enough for you. Bar is nice and the food is good, at a reasonable price. Breakfast truly sets you up for the day with a good choice.... More

We booked our Wedding After Party at The Westenra Arms Hotel and we were not left disappointed. The attentive staff, the excellent service, the fabulous food, the great music were all beyond our expectations. The location was perfect for all our wedding guests too and they all loved the friendly welcome. Ciaran, the manager, was an absolute pleasure to deal... More

But during the night noise... More

Stayed there a couple times now. Very good rate for professional's. While bedroom not huge it's comfortable and nicely laid out. Best shower ever. Great bar menu and cracking good staff. I'll be back. Good location right in the town centre too

Had dinner at the hotel recently and could not fault a single thing. The Staff were excellent especially Kieran who went out of his way to make our dinner a very special one. The food was exquisite, the price was very reasonable. We will be returning.

Having stayed here for business over the last few years I always remark how good the hotel is but never got around to reviewing it. The hotel itself is in the centre of town and has parking behind. The rooms are a bit out dated but very comfortable and cosy. However, it is the staff that make the welcome to... More

I stayed here for one night recently and I will never stay in the Westenra Arms Hotel ever again. My room was on the 2nd floor at the front of the building and the noise from outside was ridiculous. The noise from the live music in the bar was loud enough to wake me up at midnight, and the noise... More

I have, over the years, had Occassion to visit every hotel in Monaghan. The Westenra Arms is now the ONLY hotel I will stay in. I will never be able to say enough about each & every member of staff from the Lovely Maids to the Gracious Manager. The reception staff can't do enough to welcome guests. The Dining &... More

Excellent hotel in the heart of Monaghan town, not a far distance (drive) from Monaghan's Rossmore lake park (highly recommended lakeside trail). I'll start with the only bit of bad news and that would be that parking can be very limited over weekend nights, it seems. I didn't fancy the idea of waking up early to avoid being ticketed but...

My and husband and myself stayed here recently in the diamond suite. Beautiful room with jacuzzi bath in the ensuite. The hotel is clean and in a great central location in Monaghan town. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant but it looked very busy, which I assume means it must be a popular local eatery. Loved bar under the... More
