A gem!
A nice hotel in Kells, close to many top sites in Ireland, with a varied choice of eating establishments and menues. Also, if you are into fly fishing, the River Kells Blackwater is a stone's throw away.

Bathroom sink was clogged. We were told we could get breakfast at 7 before leaving for the airport, but there was no one around and dining area was locked

Great location for me, I felt secure with parking.
I was very tired when I got in, and was a bit worried about the care given to me, but the staff worked everything out and all was fine.

Great Hotel - - BUT beware of cancellations!
We had only one major issue. When using for booking, I had been told that if we check with a hotel and offer to cancel our room IF they can rent it, there would be no charge.We were attending a wedding and it appeared that our son would not need his room for the night of our stay. So I offered if they could rent the room, not to charge us. We returned at 3 a.m. and were told by the night porter/security that the room had been let. Great! The staff was VERY VERY accommodating to put a bed in our room since his room was rented. This was at 3 A.M.!! VERY nice. The next morning I was told that there was no refund. The reservation had been made "by a third party agent and we cannot refund the money for your room." I pointed out that we had been told that they had rented our son's room by the hotel staff, and she said that they were probably wrong. IF we had known that our room was still available at 3 a.m., we would have taken the room back and used it. But we were told that the room was in someone else's name. NOT HAPPY!
