Getting to Kells


Kells is situated on the N3, the trunk road from Dublin to Donegal. It is naturally an excellent place to break your journey when travelling to/from the Airport (an hour or so) or the ferryports of Dublin and Dun Laoghaire (an hour and a half). There are frequent express buses to Dublin and to Donegal.

Kells is also a good base for exploring the Boyne Valley, with all its historical associations. As well as the site of Battle of the Boyne (1690), there are the passage graves of Knowth, Dowth and Newgrange to be visited.

Also within easy reach (3/4 of an hour) are good sandy beaches, if you fancy a day at the sea after all the historical tourism. There is a racecourse at Navan. There are numerous golf courses within an easy drive, as well as Kells' own superb Headfort Golf Club


Your onward travel from Kells should take only a few hours to any/all of the destinations on this sketch. You will be fortified by an enormous breakfast and will have learnt quite a lot about Monastic Ireland. The evening will have been spent with old friends whom you hadn't met before. You will have eaten very well and been served Guinness in the most perfect surroundings - or caught a large trout, burned up the golf course, been riding, decided to become a writer or even to buy a house locally.
