Did not stay overnight in this hotel but visiting Carrickmacross I decided to pop in here for a morning coffee. The waitress was very welcoming and friendly. 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

Stayed just one night in the Shirley Arms, really comfortable spacious rooms with everything you need. Boring view over car park but lots of parking spaces. Lovely staff and decent breakfast, though it was a tad expensive for the location.

The hotel was amazing, the staff were brilliant, the food was amazing. The only problem we found was that it was very loud in the room due to a 70th party down stairs, apart from that, an amazing stay.

This is a lovely hotel which I would have no problem returning to. Rooms are big, clean and well laid out. Plenty of good safe parking. Food was very good in the bar and the restaurant. But it's the staff that make the difference, they are so helpful and friendly. Only negative thing about the hotel is the conference facilities... More

Excellent rooms, comfortable beds and great Irish made toiletries make an overnight a very pleasant experience. The breakfast is really god with more than the usual choices- I had Eggs Benedict. Good rates too! The hotel and Carrickmacross are worth a visit.

We stop by here at least a few times a year because the food and service is good. Its what I'd call honest food. The type of place you can bring your parents to and they'll enjoy a good dinner. The food is average fare but its good quality and the service and friendliness of the staff makes it worthwhile... More

We stayed in the Shirley Arms Hotel on Valentine’s Night 2015 and we have to say we were very impressed by everything. The hotel was modern, clean, welcoming, busy, spacious, great parking facilities at rear and we want to highlight the friendliness and warmth of the staff. All the staff had smiles on their faces and it made you feel... More

My wife and I overnighted here on Saturday January 10. The bedroom was modern warm and comfortable. We had a drink before going out for tea and the bar was buzzing with a lively friendly crowd. Many patrons were eating and the food seemed to be good from our observations. We returned at about 11 and the bar was still... More

We stayed for a night between Christmas and New Year. The bar was very cosy, welcoming and comfortable with a great buzz and lovely atmosphere. Almost everyone was eating and we soon understood why. I had a Thai beef salad and it was delicious. We ordered a bottle of Malbec and it also was superb. Staff were really friendly and... More
