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

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
