my partner and I stayed here over the long weekend and we were disappointed with our stay. The room smelled of damp and was cold and needed painting, the walls are paper thin and we found it difficult to sleep due to noise levels of other visitors, the bed clothes gave me a rash and felt unclean, there was absolutely...

The location is superb--just minutes away from Newgrange itself, an ancient burial chamber that celebrates the winter solstice like Stonehenge celebrates the summer solstice. Although the rooms themselves are basic, the wonderful common areas invite you to read, relax with friends, or simply enjoy the solitude and view. The staff are friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast was plentiful...

Newgrange Lodge is a very short walk from the entrance to the Newgrange Archaeological site, a UNESCO World Hertiage site, older than the Pyramids of Giza, older than Stonehenge. The Lodge is clean, comfortable and serves an adequate continental breakfast.

The Newgrange Lodge is very basic. Rooms are small and bathroom is very small. Place could use some refurbishment. Walls are thin. BUT, staff are wonderful and very helpful. If you're planning ta visit the 5,000 year old Newgrange Monument (which you should) it's less than a 5 minute walk from the Lodge. Rates are very modest. Gave it a...

This is average compared to all lodgings, better than average compared to hostels/lodges. Do your research on this facility and you will not be disappointed. This is a lodge/hostel. We stayed one night and had a private room that actually ended up having two single beds and one full bed. The room was clean, had a small TV, small bathroom,...

A quirky little place. Half hostel, half guest house, there are large common areas, both inside and out. This did make up for the smallish room we were in, as did the reasonable price. Also, the staff were friendly and accommodating. As the title suggests, it is as close as you can get to the Newgrange visitor center without actually...

The Hostel interiors are really nice, with a great dining room and relax area equipped with sofas and books. The staff has been extremely kind with us, and the completive atmosphere is excellent. Is you wish to visit the Newgrange archeological site, the Hostel is in a perfect position. A really nice experience, with a excellent quality/price ratio.

If you intend to visit the Funtasia aqua park (2 days) this is great place to stop. Hotel clean, with free wi-fi, it is possible to organize a barbecue inside, very nice and friendly service. Continental breakfast included in room price. Kitchen available for everyone. I recommend

On the way to NewGrange with me Ma who is older than Newgrange itself and needed a strong mug of tea we dropped in for said Tea. Our welcome was warm and the tea was hot, they even called Newgrange and got us a small discount. While Ma slept in the sofa beside her tea I took a ramble around...
