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.

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 ...
Everyone who we talked to said to either see the Giants Causeway or the Cliffs of Moher, since we didn't have time to drive to the Giants Causeway we settled with the cliffs because they were on our way south. When we got there we thought the entrance fee was a real rip-off because they charged at the car-park and instead of a per car rate it was 6 euro's per person! Anyway we walked up to the cliffs and took some amazing pictures. For ...
So we woke up in our rooms this morning, had breakfast, and went out to find the ruins of the real Kells monastery.
Unfortunately, there aren't any. At least, there aren't many. The monastery was dissolved during some church reforms in the 12th century, and its chapel was converted into a parish. The ...
