Celebrate your special day your way at The Headfort Arms, Meath
The Headfort, was once the town house of the Marquis of Headfort and dates back to the mid 1700’s. It still retains that sense of regal charm & with the Duff Family at the helm for over 40 years it is a case of ‘one family looks after another’ on your Wedding day.
Georgian in style, the ballroom boasts high ceilings, natural light, crystal chandeliers and a conservatory which leads onto beautiful outdoor space, fully self contained and private to the Wedding party for the most special day of their lives. As part of this years makeover, the Headfort lounge and public areas have also received a stylish new look embracing new trends such as Gin and Whiskey selections, cocktails and locally sourced food which remains part of the hotels ‘Guaranteed Irish’ charter.
For December Weddings, Certified Free Range Turkey and Goose come direct from Maperath Farm, run by one of the family especially for the Headfort guests’ plates!
The best in Meath!
This year, the Headfort celebrated being the only Meath entry in the ’Top 100 Places to Stay in Ireland’ by the coveted Mc Kenna Guides, who wrote:
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 to Kells and park up at the Headfort Arms Hotel, a grand building in this pretty town.
The staff are spontaneous, the welcome is real, the comfort is understated and 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.

Winter weddings Q&A
What is the coolest way a couple have used your venue in winter?
One year we had a group of Irish Americans check in for a week for a winter wedding, where they made the place their own, they partied for the week in front of open fires, enjoying hot toddys and sang songs around the baby grand piano.
What are the most popular dates for December weddings ?
Between Christmas Day and New Year’s we usually have a wedding every day as everybody is in party mode and at home for Christmas.
Why should couples choose your venue for their winter wedding ?
The Headfort is synonymous with being ‘a cosy house’ with open log fires, timeless seasonal decor, Christmas food sourced from the family farm (Maperath Farm in Kells supplying Turkey and Goose for Christmas) and proper Irish Hospitality to match from a long standing team of staff.
