The Secret is Out . . . Headfort Opens its Garden Gates on July 3rd for Wedding Open Day

Up until this year some would say that the Headfort Arms in Kells held onto a wonderful secret……A Secret Garden.

This summer sees the ancient rose beds of the Headfort Garden wallow in glory as they are joined with lots of beautiful new landscaping, bridal garden entrance, outdoor dining areas and a new Garden Kitchen, in what now most would describe the nicest urban garden in the Northeast of Ireland.

The Headfort, was once the town house of the Marquis of Headfort and dates back to the mid 1700’s. It still retains that sense of regal charm & with the Duff Family at the helm for over 40 years it is a case of ‘one family looks after another’ on your Wedding day. Georgian in style, the ballroom boasts high ceilings, natural light, crystal chandeliers and a conservatory which leads onto beautiful outdoor space, fully self contained and private to the Wedding party for the most special day of their lives. As part of this years makeover, the Headfort lounge and public areas have also received a stylish new look embracing new trends such as Gin and Whiskey selections, cocktails and locally sourced food which remains part of the hotels ‘Guaranteed Irish’ charter.

This year, the Headfort succeeded in being the only Meath entry in the ’Top 100 Places to Stay in Ireland’ by the coveted Mc Kenna Guides, who write;

‘Family hotels, which were once the backbone of Irish hospitality, are scarce things today, and the hotel world has become one of the sharpest iterations of the corporate world.

The people working here care about your welfare, care that you are having the best time they can create for you’
