A network of Visitor Information Points around the country, in conjunction with Fáilte Ireland, provide a tourist information service that includes local information on attractions, activities and events.
The Kells Courthouse Tourism and Cultural Hub is a beautifully restored courthouse which is home to the tourism and arts hub. It hosts a special permanent Boyne Valley Exhibition designed to inspire tourist and local people to discover the heritage town with it’s wonderful history, arts and culture.
Inside the building you will find a facsimile copy of The Book of Kells with a touch screen to have a closer look at some of the intricate art work featured throughout the book. There is a replica of The Kells Crozier and a 9th Century model of the Monastery and the town of Kells displaying what the monastery would have looked like during this medieval period. Also there are four multimedia touch screens which feature all the interesting sites of The Boyne Valley.
Discover Boyne Valley staff are on hand to answer any enquiries on local history or local sites in the area. Information on other places of interest throughout Ireland is also available. Walking tours of the town are available through a local group “Kells-Walk-About”.
Prior booking through the Courthouse is essential.
