Hey what's the best way to get from JFK, we will be coming on paddys day so imagine the traffic might be a bit of a nightmare. Would the airtrain be better?

I always taxi from airports (about $50 with tip). If you download the NYC Subway app you can find subway routes for your time in the city. Very easy to get around once you're here
What is the best and affordable means of getting from Newark airport to this hotel ? Shuttle or cab?

A shuttle is always less expensive than a cab, but if you don't have a lot of luggage and don't mind switching modes of travel, the least expensive way to make the trip is to take the Newark Airport Express toward Grand Central Station and stay on the express to the fourth stop, Bryant Park (one stop past Port Authority Bus Terminal). Get off there and walk about a block west on 42nd Street to the corner of 6th Avenue. There you can catch the F subway uptown toward Jamaica-179th Street. Get off at the second stop, 57th Street. You will exit on 6th Avenue and walk half a block north to 57th Street. Turn left to walk west at 57th Street, and the Salisbury Hotel will be half a block down on your right. Total walking is only about 1/4 mile, but some of the subway stations don't have escalators, so if you have luggage and don't want to walk or climb stairs, a shuttle or Uber would be a better bet. Uber also offers a shared side that will cost less than taking an unshared Uber ride. Unless you are arriving at a busy time of the day, Uber Pool (shared ride) will be about $30 or an unshared car will be about $50. The trip by train will take about an hour if there are no delays, and somewhat less than that if you take Uber and the traffic isn't too heavy. You'll need a smart phone with the Uber app to use Uber, and with a smart phone you can find these directions and other options on Google Maps. It is a very reliable way to find your way around most cities, and I have found it very useful for navigating the New York transit system. Have a good trip, and welcome to the USA!
