Pre wedding gathering

Pros: Location and a very welcoming lounge area with a cosy fire.
Location: Very convenient for wedding in Clonabreaney house only 20minutes drive from Kells.
Enjoyed meeting up with family the night before sisters wedding. We enjoyed dinner and drinks which went on late into the night. Very convenient located in the town centre within walking distance to hair and beauty salon.

Prefect Homely Irish Hotel

Style and fashionability aren't huge factors in the Irish Hospitality industry and hotels like this are perfect examples of why. The staff are friendly, the decor is traditional and the food is perfect bar food and then the hotel also has a very good restaurant in The Vanilla Pod

enjoyed my stay.

i found all aspects to be good, i had one problem with the radiator in my room which would not turn down , reported it to reception and they dealt with it quickly to the best they could, supplying me with a fan to cool room down quickly. food was very good and general atmosphere was very nice.
