TravelPod Member ReviewsHeadfort Arms Hotel Kells
Stayed just one night recently and had a very nice time. The woman who checked us in seemed a bit harried and could have used some help; she was the only one on duty during normal check-in time and it was too busy for any one person. The room was modern, clean and well-furnished, but a bit hot. The view out our window was of the top of a building. It was nice to have secure parking in a private lot behind the hotel since on-street parking in Kells is not free. We ate in the attached Vanilla Pod restaurant for both dinner and breakfast and found the service and the food to be quite good.

Kilmainham has a dark history, public executions, hangings, political figures shot in the courtyard, all the grisly makings of a horror prison film. In fact, it was used as a film set several times: Michael Collins, ...
Off to vist the Abbey of Kells and then Bettystown. We did go by Newgrange, but they were about to close, so we will save that for another day. We still keep getting a late start of each day since the days are so long!
After a lot of activity the previous day, we get on the road a bit later than expected this morning. After learning from my experiences (by avoiding all of my mistakes), Angie takes the wheel and gets us smoothly to Kells. We find parking and help another gentleman locate the pay station. He thanks us (we'll run into him again a bit later). We look up and down the street for breakfast ideas, but nothing is jumping out at us. We start ...
