What a week for Headfort Arms Hotel!

Headfort Arms Hotel in Kells named a ‘New Entry’ on the coveted Mc Kenna Guides 100 Best Places to Stay in Ireland 

"Star ratings and deep-pile carpets mean little or nothing in Irish hospitality." That's according to John and Sally McKenna, for 25 years arguably the most influential couple in Ireland's food and hospitality scene. The McKennas have just published STAY 2016, the latest reboot of an app featuring their take on Ireland's 100 best places to stay. 

 

Headfort Arms Hotel in Kells, Co. Meath is one of the new entrants to the prestigiouis listing showing that great hospitality does not have to come in the form of grand 5 star hotels! "Corporate-run hotels squeeze the spontaneity out of conviviality," the McKennas say."What determines whether you have a great time is the ability of the owners to make you feel welcome, to cook you a delicious breakfast of Irish foods, and to offer you sound and sage advice on what you need to know and where you need to go to get the best from travelling through Ireland."

Our people are our greatest asset by far and offering a true Irish welcome is top priority in terms of service for our visitors. It is great to be recognised by somebody as respected as the Mc Kenna’s'. 

 

This accolade comes just a week after Headfort Arms Hotel won 2 prestigious Irish Restaurant Awards:  Best Customer Service in Leinster for their Vanilla Pod Restaurant and Olivia Duff herself won the Local Food Hero for Leinster.   

Congratulations to the Duff Family and all the team at Headfort Arms Hotel.
