My go to favourite restaurant in Carrickmacross. A little bit expensive but they offer great food and great covid hygiene practices. I'll definitely be paying another visit when it can open again.

We dine regularly in the Shirley Arms and have always found the food and service to be of a consistently high standard. There is a very nice ambience in the hotel and except for the fact we live locally we would consider this a very...nice venue for a weekend stay.More
