I write this review as I lie in bed at 12.15pm, listening to a guy on a guitar as loud as he's sat on the end of the bed. The hotel is lovely. Friendly staff, good service and our room was very spacious. Queen bed with sofa area, 2 TV's, bath, desk and dressing table. All lovely you'd imagine. That... More

I love going to Shirleys for food in the bar or restaurant, food is fab, staff are always friendly. Great atmosphere in the lounge, specially when there's music on. We always meet up for girly lunches.

We received a voucher as a gift so visited this hotel for a meal recently. We decided to eat in the bar and found a lovely comfortable table at one end where we had a good view of the comings and goings of the hotel. There was a good buzz about with lots of people eating. I ordered the chicken... More

Super hotel at the bottom of the Main Street - staff very pleasant and the hotel clean and fresh. Bedrooms spacious and comfortable - would recommend this hotel. We stayed for just the one night and all the staff were helpful. Excellent breakfast and easy check-in and check-out process.

I rang reception and they said they could change my room to one with a bath. The second room in the old part of the hotel was also fine, though the bathroom was... More

Had reason to stay at this hotel in March as I was attending a conference in the town and was very pleasantly surprised with the place. Centrally located, within a short stroll to the town centre. Plenty of free parking to the rear of the hotel. Young, friendly and enthusiastic staff were happy to engage in conversation whether at reception,... More

I was at a birthday party in the Shirley Arms Hotel, Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan, recently (Mar 2015). The food was excellent, very tasty and served with a smile. However, the tea, served after the meal, was quite undrinkable. I just wonder, if the tea containers, need a fresh washing ? Pity, because the hotel is charming in all other respects.

I ordered a black decaf coffee and she kindly brought me a pot which was lovely to get as I was going to read my newspaper. As my husband was working in the... More
