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

I had a meal in the Westenra recently and I was very disappointed as I expected good food, nicely presented and tasting excellent but the food was poorly presented and was not appetising. Service was pleasant but disconnected.

As we had travelled such a distance from Canada, we were granted the "Rossmore Suite" for our 2 night stay. The bed was like something from a king's court and most comfortable with the heavy brocade linens done in royal colours complementing the canopy style. The bathroom was an extremely long bathtub and was quite elegant. Packets of biscuits lay... More

What a wonderful hotel! We arrived to be told we would be upgraded to a suite which was beautiful and traditional. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was clean and tidy. After walking around the town to find that most restaurants were shut we came back and ate at the hotel to which we were not disappointed. The... More

Spent a night in this hotel in August. We felt welcome from the first moment. The receptionist was very helpful and pleasant. Our room was large and very comfortable. The location of the hotel was great, the town was nice to stroll around in the early evening. We had dinner in the restaurant at the hotel, €27.50 for a four... More
