We booked this place as a cheap place to stay for the night after Slane (when Foo Fighters were the headline act). We were booked in fine and were able to leave our stuff there okay and didn't have any trouble there at first everything seemed to be in order. They arranged travel to Slane for us from the lodge...

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... More

Staff were good. I know it is advertised as hostel/lodge but youth hostel is more appropriate. Good location to visit tombs. Noisiest place we have ever stayed at. I like having a good time too, but whistling to your mates up the corridor at 4.00am is a bit late. Who puts bamboo flooring on a walkway in front of sleeping... More

We stayed for one night on the 8th and was sent to a first floor room around the back. Brushed away the cob webs from the door way and entered. The room was OK until we got to the bathroom. The tile floors by the shower had mold on the grout and tile and going up the wall about a... More

We took a couple of days over Heritage week to visit the historic sites of County Meath. Made alot of sense to book the Lodge as it was located across the road from the entrance to the Newgrange and Knowth reception area. We got a family room for 6 of us. Fairly basic as you'd expect with a Hostel, but... More

Newgrange Lodge is like a boutique hostel - private ensuite rooms, communal areas including kitchen but good breakfast provided if you choose this option. Good value for money. Great location just yards from the wonderful Newgrange ancient monument.

Close to Newgrange is the only real plus. Rooms are OK but beds are pretty hard. TV is the size of a postage stamp. Bathroom is small. Nothing close by for eating unless you drive yo town. Facility is spacious with lots of common areas. Folks are very nice. Rates are fairly inexpensive.

Visited with 5 kids and 2 adults to visit Tayto park. We originally booked 2 rooms, on arrival we were able to switch to a large family room that hosted all of us. The staff were really helpful and recommended a great family restaurant in Drogheda. Room was basic but clean and comfortable and the continental breakfast was lovely. Not... More
