Good food, nice but noisy
Lovely hotel in Kells. The rooms, furnishings, and features seem newer and well-maintained. Our room was not ready when we arrived even though it was after check-in time, but the staff set us up in the bar and treated us well. There was a wedding and a concert the weekend we were there, resulting in some areas being extremely overcrowded and noisy, and the parking being full. Restaurant options are very good, and we enjoyed some of the best food and drink of our Ireland trip.
