Kells, or Ceanannas Mór, meaning Great Fort, was known to be a royal residence before St. Colmcille established a religious settlement in Kells in 550. It is considered by many historians to be one of the most important monastic sites in Ireland. A walk through the town will lead visitors to realise that its physical treasures are the monastic layout of the town. The trail commences at the Town Hall and Tourist information point (located beside the Headfort Arms Hotel at Headfort Place) where you will find parking.
