Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Spoon and the Stars is great! Our private room was fantastic. The shared spaces are cute and quaint. The woman at the front desk was very friendly, informative and accommodating. I definitely recommend if you need lodging in Drogheda!

I stayed at spoon and the stars on several occasions during 2023 in both mixed dorm and private room. The rooms were quiet and comfortable, and the bathrooms were always clean. The staff were very helpful and the common rooms were very inviting. The location is a near a bus stop and a shopping mall, which is a plus. Overall I’d highly recommend staying here if you’re in Drogheda or wanting to visit Newgrange nearby.

The accommodation was great, but the staff went to a whole different level to make you feel so welcome, and of course Declan the manager was so professional, very courteous and welcoming, without him it would have been a different experience he really was a great man. My only regret was not writing this review earlier, I more than reccomend this place. And I for sure will return again one day, thank you everyone for making my stay a great memory. Marvin

For starters or original room was double booked! Walked in on another couple in bed and gave them the fight of their lives! Couldn't get in contact with the owner then because they were unreachable on the number provided. We were lucky that we bumped into some sort of "friend" of their's that stay's there regularly. I say friend because the guy was drinking and definitely not working there, but somehow knew the staff, and could reach someone on their personal number. Our new room then was awful!! Very small, stuffy and cramped! The door isn't even a standard height! It also smelled dusty and mouldy. The mattress felt uneven because I'm pretty sure the bed is broken underneath. Couldn't sleep a wink. Had an event on the next day and I was shattered for it. Also there was no breakfast the next day. Kitchen was closed after we were told it was going to be open from 8am to 10am.

I stay here nearly every time I come to Ireland. Close to the airport and many points of interest. That aside, this hostel is clean and comfortable with kitchen equipped with anything you need. The owners are always improving on the place so the bathrooms and showers are new and very well done.

We booked too see the historical town of Drogheda and to venture into Dublin to explore. Spoon and the Stars is very welcoming with a great host and vibe! Boutique and travelled yet very homely, we met some great people whilst there. Clean double en-suite room with kitchen facilities it was perfect for us and comfy. Fantastic location just a short walk to bus and train stations. For Airport, Dublin and other local towns. It’s also next to Enterprise so hiring a car was not a problem if you fancied sight seeing into countryside etc. Short walk into the centre with some great choices of bars and restaurants. Favourite being traditional Irish pubs; Carberry's (Tí Chairbre) and Clarke & Sons. Fully recommended! xx

I had the pleasure of staying in the Spoon and the Stars and I really enjoyed my stay. I stayed in the 10 bed dorm and I always had a good night's sleep. The dorm was kept very clean as were the showers and toilets. The hostel is very well managed by friendly and polite staff. I always felt welcome and getting a hello seemed to be just part of the service. I recommend the Spoon to anyone.

We visited this hostel to meet up with our German choir friends who were on an exchange with the Tredagh Singers. There was a large group of us, some in shared dorms with iron bunk beds, some like us in en-suite rooms. Our bed was very comfortable and yes, the showers are great. This hostel is very well maintained by staff who welcomed everyone. The hostel attracts guests from all over the world. There is a nice back yard lit with fairy lights and mostly undercover with a huge awning. Some inevitable drips from the rain but a nice place to hang out. The breakfast is help yourself, healthy and plentiful. There are plenty of facilities to cook and store your provisions. I was glad not to be staying in the dorms but the youngsters did not complain. Some issues with traffic noise at the front and smokers using the back yard. Staff were kind, easy going yet keep a tight ship with clear rules regarding no substances. There is no bar, but a great kitchen with huge shared table and a lounge with Wi Fi TV. The hostel is about 10 mins walk from the bus station and 5 mins from the train station. It is easy to walk Into town and there are simple restaurants and takeaways nearby. We liked the Railway pub and nearby Indian restaurant. Drogheda is a good base to visit attractions nearby with good train and bus services. Direct express bus, 100X to and from Dublin airport.
