In terms of Culture & Heritage, Kells has it all. Kells is located in County Meath in the North of Ireland's Ancient East - just a stone through away from Newgrange, Hill of Tara and Trim Castle. Kells is famous for the "Book of Kells" which is now situated in Trinity College. The Abbey of Kells, with it's round tower, crosses and oratory can still be viewed in the churchyard of St. Columba's church. The Tower of Lloyd overlooks the town from the Hill of Lloyd is a spectacular viewing point for all. The Kells Municipal District extends way beyond Kells town and into areas with equally spectacular history - Loughcrew is just one example.
