Kells is one of the most historic towns in Ireland. Made famous as the place where the Book of Kells, a highly ornate version of the four gospels in Latin, was created. It was written around the year 800, though it remains unclear whether it was written in whole or part at Kells. Being a historic destination is only the beginning of the story in this beautiful town. It’s also bursting with festivals, trails, amazing food, and lively bars. Here are our top ten reasons why Kells should be on your bucket list for 2022.
