About Vanilla Pod & Keltic Bar
Although it is under the umbrella of the Headfort Arms, The Vanilla Pod is a self-contained contemporary restaurant that has earned itself regional national acclaim in its 10 plus years of operation.
The ‘Pod’ as it is affectionately known amongst its loyal fan base offers a wonderful choice of International cuisine in a contemporary bistro atmosphere.
We pride ourselves on good quality, carefully sourced produce from local suppliers, using ingredients that are in season and offering specialties such as locally reared lamb and locally produced cheeses.
The Vanilla Pod has been rated in ‘Tom Doorley’s Top 100 Places To Eat in Ireland’ and has consistently featured in the coveted Bridgestone & Georgina Campbell Guide to Ireland.
Lovely food and great service!
Great experience from start to finish and the staff helped make the night.
Beautiful meal, hot and tasty. We'll be back.
Great food, great service.
Excellent as always. Well managed. All the staff are 100%
We used Kelltic bar that operates next door to Vanilla Pod. The service was excellent, super nice and accommodating. Great to see that vegans are catered for too - vegan stir fry and a burger were really lovely. We will definitely be back.
I will recommend this place. Food was delicious.
The best steak I have ever had, great food, great service, brilliant friendly staff. 5 years since I was here, I definitely won’t leave it as long - can’t wait too come back. Forgot to mention creme brûlée and rose wine and the very funny male manager - I forgot to ask his name! Will find out next time
Fantastic place! Lovely and romantic, great atmosphere. The staff were all very attentive and friendly. The food was outstanding. We had the chicken wings and prawns to start. The prawns were very nicely cooked and the wings were out of this world! My boyfriend is still talking about it. Our mains were equally as delicious. We had the fish and chips, and duck. It was a really enjoyable evening, the food, staff and the general space was comfortable and we felt very safe.
Lovely meal Delicious food Service was excellent, very helpful and friendly Relaxing atmosphere
No customer service, very lax. No one came to check our meal was okay. We were 25 mins waiting for food. When finished eating for 45mins no one came to clear plates or asked if we wanted tea/coffee or desert. Just got up and left
Good food and wine. Great service and atmosphere.

5 stars all round - food was fabulous, staff went above and beyond to make sure we were looked after and had the added bonus of really good music while dining. Will definitely be back the next time we’re in Kells!
