We had breakfast with friends. Elements of the breakfast were a little over-cooked but not bad. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There's lots of space when eating with children. Worth a visit for a weekend breakfast.

Recently stayed at the Headfort hotel and can highly recommend it. The room was excellent - maybe just move the TV to the wall opposite the bed for ease of viewing or put it on one of those 'arm' things. I liked the lighting arrangement in the room as some hotels have very dim lights which aren't great for reading.... More

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.
