I dined with my daughter in the vanilla pod last night. Once again the service was friendly and efficient. The menu was the same as previous 2recent visits but a good choice nonetheless. Waitress was well informed about gluten free options. We ll be happy to return soon.

Lovely hotel and for the most excellent service and staff. Had a lovely treatment at the spa and a beautiful meal at the Vanilla Pod. There was apparently a 21st birthday party on the Friday in the nightclub and quite a few of the party goers were staying in the hotel. We unfortunately were on the same floor as these... More

Stayed for 3 nights midweek, rooms were lovely. It was about 10pm an unearthly noise began from across the street. We rang reception and they stated it there was a grad on and it wasn't coming from their premises. A further 1.5 hours later we had to ring again as even the TV up to 100 didn't drown the noise...

Sometimes you visit a hotel who has won an award a couple of years ago and you wonder what the judges were up to ... Not so with this hotel - 1. We parked with a load of bags in the car and every staff member we met asked to help us 2. The receptionist couldn't have been more helpful.... More

We loved this place and had such an amazing last night in Ireland here. The front desk staff was so accomodating, and helped us print off our boarding passes for our flights. They also mailed our letters for free, and were such kind and sweet. We had a nice small room, but very nice, and same for the bathroom. Enjoyed... More

The Headfort Arms was the most friendly and welcoming hotel we could have wished for. Every member of staff was superb and went more than the extra mile to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. Our rooms were comfortable, the food was superb - dining one night “pub style” and the next at the Vanilla Pod. Fiona who taxi’d us around was... More
