Hostels in the Newgrange area??

Has anyone out there had any experience staying at any of the hostels in the region? There's not a lot of info on the net,and I'd really like to know what they're like.

There's apparently one at Trim,one at Slane and one at Kells. Are there any others?

If anyone knows about any of them, descriptions or advice would be much appreciated!

Not a hostel, but www.newgrangelodge.com in Donore seems to offer value, and be pretty well located.

If you are backpacking and dependant on public transport etc Newgrange would be difficult to get to from Trim and Kells as they would be 20 odd miles away. I don't even know if you culd get direct access from Slane to Newgrange by public transport.

Check out the Green Door Hostel in Drogheda - www.greendoorireland.com. which would be more suitable and would have easy access to Newgrange. There is an excellent bus/train service to Dublin/The airport/Belfast etc from Drogheda also. Their website appears to give links to attractions in the area - so check it out. You would only be a 10 minute trip from Newgrange but have the amenities of a thriving local town.

Definitely consider Newgrange Lodge - I was in it last summer and it was lovely - big comfy sofas for lounging in, nice courtyard, basic rooms but new and spotlessly clean and right acrss from Newgrange.

Our family stayed at the Slane Farm hostel a few years ago and loved it. We were travelling by car so I don't know about bus access. We had family rooms which were very clean and comfortable. The couple who ran the place were very friendly and helpful. Our daughter and their daughter were about the same age and got on well.

I highly recommend the Slane Farm hostel but as I said I don't know what kind of bus access there is. It wasn't too far from the village of Slane.

I wold recpmmend Dalys B&B in Donore, a short walk from Newgange and easily accessable by Bus from Drogheda. They have a Bar & Restaurant as well. Would be a bit more expensive, but nice for a treat.

Check out their website for local information.
