We stayed one night on a package for 2 adults & 3 kids for Tayto Park Euro141- the front desk staff are nice girls but lacking a little personal touch like the hotel - soulless kind of place - the girl on the leisure centre was the friendliest - the red bar is odd and full of tv's, there were five showing all different pictures around our table and no sound - hated this - we are away to escape tv with the kids - we actually didn't get a word out of our children because of the tvs. Some of the pictures on the tvs were not suitable for children.
Breakfast is good but again soulless - not sure about this hotel - kind of middle of nowhere on a roundabout and the usual situation with a too hot bedroom over night - none of us slept very well.
The big benefit is that it is quite near Tayto Park, which you should combine with a trip to Newgrange (great place).
We stayed the second night in Newgrange Lodge (B&B/Hostel) and what craic we had with the staff - a very different experience. I guess we shall stay away from modern hotels.
We never got to the pool, but it looked lovely.
Thanks anyhow but there was nothing to drag us back - sorry.
