The Headfort Arms Hotel

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

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. But if you want to see – and feel – exactly what an Irish, family-run hotel is like, then take the short journey from Dublin, or from Dublin airport, to Trim, in County Meath. Drive into the car park of The Headfort Arms Hotel, a grand building on the main street of this pretty town, and home to a family hotel run by the Duff family. Once you are in the door, you will notice how everything is different from a corporate hotel: the staff are spontaneous; the welcome is real; the comfort is understated; the cooking is soulful. The people working here care about your welfare, care that you are having the best time they can create for you. We find these qualities to be the most important that you can discover in Irish hospitality, and Olivia and Vincent Duff and their team personify a gracious, modest Irish hospitality. So, Headfort is your base for exploring Ireland’s Ancient East, and all its riches, and one of those riches is the Headfort Arms itself.
