About the area
One of the most unique and special destinations in the world, Kells welcomes you to come and explore and be a part of the special story of this Heritage Town.
Based in the Boyne Valley Region (birthplace of Ireland’s Ancient East), Kells is one of the reasons that Ireland is referred to as the Land of Saints and Scholars. It contributed heavily to keeping the light of learning alive in Europe during the Dark Ages. For this reason Kells is on the tentative list to become a World Heritage Site with UNESCO.
Here also was where the famous Book of Kells was completed and protected in this “City of God” for over 800 years before being moved to Trinity College in the late 17th century.
Previous to that, Kells was central to the story of the pre-Olympic Games of Ireland – the Tailteann Games -in legend dated to 1897 B.C. – and possibly a contributor to the Ancient Olympic Games in Greece.
Many places of interest in Kells are associated with the old monastery - the imposing round tower of Kells and no less than five high crosses can still be seen today. Four of Kells' high crosses and the round tower of Kells are in the churchyard of St Columba's Church, which built on the highest point in Kells. The church and surroundings are usually free to access during daylight hours and the church itself is also curious because it has a medieval tower that is detached from the building.
Near St. Columba's church visitors will also find a smaller oratory with a stone roof known as St. Colmcille's House. Dating from the 11th century, the small rectangular building is typical of a monastic church of the time. The oratory is not generally open to visitors, but access can be arranged (current details are found at the locked gate).
The fifth high cross can be found near the old courthouse next to the N3 – the courthouse also doubled as a museum and visitor's centre until 2009, when funds ran out.
The famous Book of Kells is, however, kept at Trinity College Dublin – and the magnificent Kells Crozier can be found even further away, at the British Museum in London.
In furtherance of Kells' literary background, the town hosts the annual Hinterland Festival, and the Type Trail, dedicated to literature and typography from around the world.
Just north of Kells (and accessible via the Oldcastle road) is the “People's Park”, a community area on the Hill of Lloyd. Here the “Tower of Lloyd” dominates the hilltop, it is a memorial and folly from the 18th century, in the shape of a huge Doric column topped by a glazed lantern. A lighthouse far inland erected to the memory of Thomas Taylor, 1st Earl of Bective.
If you are interested in the history of the Great Famine, nearby you'll also find the “Paupers' Grave”, a cemetery where an unknown number of workhouse inmates and famine victims are buried and a special mass is celebrated annually.
