On the plus side, the staff are friendly and breakfast is ok. This place is really a youth hostel though, not ideal for families or couples. Worst is the complete lack on cleanliness in rooms and bathrooms. Bathrooms have obviously not been cleaned properly for a long time - engrained dirt, filthy (brown) toilet brush, hand & body cream in...

I took a group of eighteen 15 yr olds here as part of a rugby tour staying 3 nights and cannot recommend highly enough. They stayed in comfortable dormitory accommodation with all linen provided whilst adult leaders stayed in twin en-suite rooms. Everything clean and comfortable. We were staying on a half board basis and although no cooked breakfast there...

Myself and my fiancé stayed here and when we pulled up we thought wow it looks so good, but upon entering we seriously considered leaving and going to a hotel near by. The staff weren't very friendly and it looked more like a hostel than a lodge. The room left a lot to be desired and the shower looked like...

I've stayed in tree houses in Laos that were more comfortable than this place. Now the staff were fantastic but other than that this place is seriously under par. The room had a very bad smell, the bed was very uncomfortable, the walls are paper thin so prepare to hear everything, the breakfast was not good enough and we paid...

Stayed here for a few days in December, close to the winter solstice. En-suite with a bath, I found the lodge to be quiet and homely. The is net-access at reception, handy for checking bus-times to and from the lodge etc. Newgrange is close-by. The quadrangular courtyard is unique - the layout of the lodge is unusual. Large window panes...

When We asked a friend what we shouldn't miss in Ireland, Newgrange was at the top of her list. With the winter solstice coming, it was the perfect time to visit. It's a 5000 year old archeological masterpiece; older than the pyramids! Thrilling experience for the visitor. Only wish Knowth was open when we visited. How had we not heard...

We booked this place as a cheap place to stay for the night after Slane (when Foo Fighters were the headline act).

Good place to stay and very friendly accommodating staff . Free car parking and plenty of spaces. It is a great place to stay if your going to visit New Grange or the Battle of the Boyne .The only negative was the bathroom could do with a dusting but it is clean.

I've taken groups of students from Cork to newgrange and stayed at newgrange Lodge over the past five years. It is an ideal location for secondary students as its safe with no distractions. The dorms are ideal with plenty of space. The rec room has a TV while there is a pool table and courtyard area for students to relax...
