We visited The Shirley Arms for bar food. On first impression I was pleasantly surprised by how modern the interior was. There was a good choice of food available, all reasonably priced. The drinks were a bit expensive but I’ve come to expect that from hotel bars. Our meals were well presented & very tasty however I do not like... More

We stayed here to attend a party in September. It is a very nice hotel, the rooms are spacious and the staff are helpful. The bathroom has lovely quality handmade soaps and lotions. Breakfast was good. The only complaint I have is that we arrived before 6, hungry, but knowing we were attending a function. It was not possible to... More

A small hotel which does everything well. Rooms clean and modern, food great. Lovely atmosphere in the bar area Saturday night, staff very friendly and helpful. Only negative was the dynamic currency conversion with the bill without asking.

Myself and a friend had the pleasure of staying in The Shirley Arms Hotel in September this year. The staff at reception were extremely friendly and informative when we arrived, answering any question we had about the hotel and the surrounding areas. Our room was huge! Nice big window and a huge bathroom. Our TV wasn't working but we didn't... More

I stayed at the Shirley Arms Hotel in March 2014 with my mum, sister and cousin (3 rooms). We would usually stay with family but we had flown over to Ireland to attend a surprise birthday party. I would honestly recommend this lovely hotel to anyone wanting a nice relaxing base from which to explore the surrounding area. Greeted by... More

I stayed in The Shirley Arms Hotel last week with six friends on a golf break, the first time here for all of us but hopefully not the last. This was one of the best places we have stayed in. The staff were always smiling and helpful, nothing was too much trouble, the food was excellent, the service impeccable. The... More

We stayed here last night, this is a beautiful modern hotel, I was really surprised at how spacious the bedroom is, all the staff are great especially Fiona the receptionist. The bar food is excellent.

Recently ate here with my friend for lunch. Go here regularly and this would be my too choice to bring a friend for casual bar food or a meal in restaurant. Good selection on the menu, always well presented and timely service. I love your garlic mushrooms and delicious duck wrap. Yum!
