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!

My first visit to The Shirley Arms Hotel was a most enjoyable experience. My husband and I booked a two-daybreak last week, which we do on a fairly regular basis to different parts of Ireland. From check-in to departure, the Hotel service was faultless. Our room was spacious, and the bathroom fully equiped with good quality towels. Dinner on both... More

The staff are friendly and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable...the bed just wants you to jump in it! It was clean and tidy and very modern. The breakfast was excellent if you wanted a cooked breakfast but if you wanted continental it was a bit dull, with a small choice of cereal and pastries which we only... More
