I spent 5 nights at White Gables in Kells with my bf while visiting Co.Meath. Gemma is a wonderful young lady with a friendly attitude and unreprochable skills for B&B and food! Breakfast was big and delicious, all freshly made and a nice way to a chat with other people around a table. There is also a lovely sitting room... More

We arrived at White Gables near the end of our trip, and it really felt like stopping in at home! The home is lovely, with a beautiful, huge garden, very comfortable 'living' room, and a relaxed, calming environment. Gemma is an artist in the kitchen! ...as well as in decorating, hospitality, and products. Warm and friendly and bright, this home... More

My husband and I visited with a larger tour. We had a very clean, cheery, pretty, private room with our own private bathroom overlooking the breathtaking garden. Our bedroom window looked out on the High Cross and the street below. We felt right at home, cozy and warm and comfortable. Gemma made the best Irish breakfasts we could have imagined,... More

We travel to Ireland twice a year and White Gables B&B is always on our tour. Gemma McGowan is a wonderful guide and incredible hostess. The food is always a highlight and our travelers look forward to it.

A perfect little place just off a major bus line--easy to get into Dublin or to the major sites I wanted to see. The hostess, Gemma, was absolutely delightful and accommodating. I am already planning my next visit and am planning on staying there.

Our charming host Gemma looked after us superbly. I slept like a log and my room with en suite was very nice. Gemma also organised a wonderful buffet meal for my tour group followed by a traditional Irish music evening with great musicians. Had a great time. Has a most beautiful garden.
