The Snailbox, Kilmoon, Ashbourne, Co. Meath

This is the first post from our new contributor Mary Groeger.

On route to a family wedding in Rathfeigh Co. Meath and in need of light refreshment I saw a sign for The Snailbox and decided to give it a try. It is 15 mins from the M50 and on the road to Ashbourne. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They could see by the way we were dressed that we were going somewhere important. We said we were in a hurry and menus were produced along with suggestions of what we might have that would be quick easy and light. It was a beautiful sunny day and we decided to sit outside. There were magnificent views of the rolling Meath country side. A “Perfect Day”.

When we were settled and enjoying our soup and sandwiches (delicious) I noticed two separate groups of people with special needs enjoying their lunch. Some were in power wheelchairs. When I visited the bathrooms I could understand why they were there they were fully accessible for people with disabilities. I could see from the way the staff dealt with their special customers that they valued their custom, and that they were all very welcome. Nearby families with young children in buggies were also enjoying their lunch, facilities for this group were also excellent.

I have since looked up The Snailbox website and they say they welcome people with disabilities, and I can confirm that they do and that people with disabilities are able to use the facilities independently. I can say this from experience because I frequently take a group of people with special needs on outings to places that say they are accessible and when we get there and someone in a wheelchair wants to go to the bathroom the wheelchair and the person in it will not fit in.

So well done to The Snail Box for providing such good access and good food, they deserve to do good business. Other pubs and restaurants please take note.
