We stayed in the Farnham from Monday the 14th July 2014 to Thursday the 17th as a base for a fishing trip to Lough Sheelin. What a deal we got! Two nights B & B with one three course dinner, for two people, for 180 Euro - Then because we had booked the "midweek" package, we were given an extra... More

On our way from Donegal to Galway, stopped in Cavan for lunch in the Farnham Arms hotel. Carvery had a fabulous display of food and salad bar looked very appetising. I had a tomato and basil salad with baby potatoes, curried rice, Cajun chicken and yoghurt. My husband had lamb cutlets, sautéed onions, spring cabbage and carrots and mashed potatoes.... More

Stopped in Cavan and tried this hotel for an evening meal. We had a delicious meal in the bar. There was an extensive choice and the service was friendly and efficient. The food was serviced fairly quickly and was well presented and very tasty. The Guinness was also excellent.

We didn't stay here but called into Percy's Bar on a Sunday afternoon to watch a match and have some barfood. The service wasn't great as the barman was more interested in watching the match. The food was just awful. It was inedible and overpriced. I'm disgusted that we paid for this and that we didn't didn't complain at the... More

Had dinner here the food was terrible, staff were awful. Very disappointing very poor standard of food. Staff had an attitude problem. Certainly wont be returning again. Had mixed reasons about going here. I wouldn't recommend for anyone to stay or to eat here. The hotel needs a complete face lift.
