The accommodation is clean, comfortable and updated to provide every convenience you would find in a large city hotel. The meal in the VanillaPod restaurant was excellent,high quality ingredients, different and interesting vegetables with an appetizing and attractive presentation. Top marks go to the London trained Chef.

Every area of this hotel may not have been refurbished, however, the staff and the rooms are lovely, making it a very pleasant place to stay. If you are interested in neolithic to medieval history, Kells is an ideal base.

We had our hen party here on 6th Aug and I would highly recommend the Headfort Arms for any occasion. The staff were fantastic, friendly and very accommodating. The rooms were clean and spacious and the food was out of this world. I'll definitely be back again.
