Unassuming from the outside, but comfortable and homely - which was a nice change from sterile hotel rooms. Gillian was really welcoming and did all she could to make me comfortable and point out facilities I may like to visit/eat/drink at. Well situated to explore the town on foot. Was very quiet for me, but there wasn't anyone in the... More

This was our second visit to the Railway Lodge. Can not beat the convenience to the town, price, service, friendliness, etc. Rooms were clean and neat and Sheila was an excellent hostess. We had rooms on 3rd floor this time vs 2nd last time which is a bit of a hike if you have heavy suitcases. If we come back... More

Even though my day was hectic and delayed, the folks at the Railway Lodge were so helpful and flexible! I was comfy and cozy in no time, and had a fantastic breakfast to start my travels! Thank you, Railway Lodge :)

This is our local pub with grub and a restaurant. Jacks was a famous Kells landmark which closed for years and now under the management of Victoria and family is buzzing again. Great atmosphere and grub. Don't pass Jacks by.

After working a 16 hour shift, I was informed by the owner that my room was given away. I rang earlier that day to let them know I wouldn't be finished work until 18:00, when I rang for directions at 7:30, she told me my room was given away "because I didn't show up at 6". I totally understand that... More

Myself and my partner spent 2 nights here a few weeks and we had the most perfect time. We really didn't want to get up at all as the bed was so very comfortable.

This B&B is all about location. It's perfect if you want to be close to the action, walk to a pub, etc. This B&B had less amenities than other B&B's (ex: no in room kettle with coffee/tea), but the pricing reflected it, which was perfect for us. The owner was really friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. Also there... More
