#1 of 2 Specialty lodging in Donore
Formerly an old farmhouse, Newgrange Lodge is located in the wonderful UNESCO parkland of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth, yet we are only a 30 minute drive from Dublin airport and city. Relax and breath in the fresh country air as you visit the nearby world famous sites of Trim Castle (as featured in Brave Heart) , the magical Hill of Tara, the High Crosses at Monasterboice and then relax and sample the local flavours in the historic yet opulent setting of Slane Castle and Whiskey Distillery. For the younger members of the family we are only a 20 minute drive from Tayto Park and a 10 minute drive from Funtasia Waterpark. Enjoy comfortable accommodation, a relaxed atmosphere and a warm welcome during your trip to Irelands Ancient East and our beautiful Boyne Valley. We look forward to seeing you here soon!

We stayed one night in the Newgrange Lodge in order to visit the Newgrange monument. The staff was friendly and tried to be helpful. The room was small but comfortable, and reasonably clean. We did not take advantage of the lounge, but it looked welcoming. There was a good selection of food for breakfast. We had just arrived after traveling from North America, and needed to get sleep. When booking, I didn't realize the lodge hosts groups of children. The night we stayed a drama group was there, and housed in dormitory-style directly over our bedroom. The kids were so loud and their chaperones so ineffective we were unable to sleep. My husband went to the front desk twice and we have short intervals of happy silence, but it did not last. I finally approached one of the chaperones and she apologized and said all would be quiet by 11:30 pm. All was calm by about 12:30 pm and the chaperones were very apologetic the next morning. It is hard to keep groups of young people quiet and 11:30 is a reasonable time to expect them in bed. Had I known the lodge accommodated groups of school kids, I likely would have booked somewhere else.

Newgrange Lodge is situated near the beautiful, quaint village of Donore, Co. Meath and is easily accessible from the M1 motorway. The lodge is an excellent place to stay when visiting nearby places of historical interest. The staff at Newgrange Lodge are friendly and welcoming. A special word of thanks to Lucia and her little dog Charlie! Bedrooms at the lodge aren't huge but equipped with everything the visitor needs. We like to cook so we were very pleased to find a well-appointed kitchen and dining room. There are some lovely comfortable sitting areas where visitors can relax to read or watch television. If the weather is fine, the sunny flower-filled deck offers picnic tables for visitors who want to enjoy a beer or a glass of wine outdoors. Breakfast is of a very high standard. I would recommend the full Irish - delicious! We look forward to visiting Newgrange Lodge again soon and urge readers of this piece to check it out. You won't be disappointed! Jackie

We stayed several nights in the Newgrange Lodge. It did not live up to expectations but it was not horrible either, overall it was OK. The good included a very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast with a selection of food and a fantastic location for visiting Newgrange and the other archaeological sites in the region. There was good wifi in the lounge and a nice lounge to hang out in. The bad mainly relates to the condition of the lodge. The rooms did not look like the pictures that the lodge publishes. All is a bit shabby and in need of an overhaul. Our room was a bit cramped for two people. The shower had rust stains and mildew. When we arrived there was a pile of dirty towels in the middle of the bathroom. Cleaning generally seemed a little lax. We found a bottle cap that was not from a bottle we opened, many dust bunnies under furniture and an English 5 pence that we did not bring. You should be aware that the lodge caters to large groups of school children. The Danish group that was there while we were visiting were well mannered and not too loud.

Stayed recently as part of a hen party group during the Fleadh in Drogheda. Incredible hospitality shown to us from all the staff. We felt as if we had rented a large house to ourselves for the weekend. Beautiful common areas including a markee outside made it so easy for our large group to hang out together and do our activities. The breakfast spread is better than most hotels I've ever stayed in. Highly recommend staying here.
