We stayed for nearly a week due to an unexpected medical issue. The staff are exceptional. The room was warm, comfortable and clean. Great wifi, free parking, 3 wonderful restaurants on site. Great access to some of Ireland's special historic sites. Just an hour from Dublin.

I organised a charity ball for 16-19 year olds in the hotel in aid of the Jade Foundation. the prices given were amazing and helped us raise as much money as we could for the charity! Rebecca, the event manager of the hotel, was so helpful from the very start and without her the event wouldn't be half as much... More

Ours was an impromptu call on the Headfort Arms for a bite of lunch. It didn't disappoint. I would normally pass on a heavy midday lunch but I was overpowered by the inviting aroma of roast meats. The taste matched the aroma; a delicious lunch. Friendly staff and clearly a very popular spot with the locals; always a good sign.... More

Quiet bedroom and spotless bathroom with good... More

Fab family room, no 28, very spacious, clean and great value. Food at Vanilla pod fantastic, and then had a great night at the Kelltic bar. Entertainment for everyone and friendly service. Breakfast was very tasty and there was lots of choice. Would definitely stay again!

Provided you don't get a room above this hotel's function suite this is a wonderful hotel. The staff are everything you expect the staff of an Irish country hotel to be, friendly, funny and helpful. The rooms are well-maintained and well-furnished. Not plush, but modern and more than adequate. The hotel is at the centre of this small, historic, town's... More
