“The Best Customer Service - Great place to see the magic of Newgrange”
Reviewed March 23, 2010

I really can not speak highly enough of the excellent and welcoming service in this lovely lodge. Every cliche is true about this place "going the extra mile", "making you feel at home" , this is exactly what Tina and her team did. The weekend was very busy with a concert band staying and practicising over the weekend but soppy as this may sound - it added to the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and the merry band were in a separate part of the large lodge so we slept soundly in a comfy - if very warm room.
The breakfast continental was again lovely and set us up before we set off on our trip to Newgrange ( which Tina had booked for us when we arrived! ) - which is about 1 minute down the road! .A wonderful retreat

I came to the Newgrange Lodge for a mixed pleasure/ business trip and found it a top notch place which accommodated both. The facilities are quite mid way between the historical Newgrange site and Maynooth, so the location is quite good. The lodge itself has a lovely interior design, and excellent facilities which allowed us the privacy to do as we pleased. On a personal level I found the staff to be very helpful, allowing me internet access on their own respective computers and always asking to see if they can help us with anything. The rooms are clean, and provide all that you need. I'd highly recommend this spot to anyone.

we had our own wedding party at the newgrange lodge, two days after getting married and had the best craic - we booked out the whole place, which worked out to be very reasonable indeed and great value, stocked up on food and liquids and brought in our own music - the party went on for quite a while as you'd imagine for a wedding - I have to say the staff, from the management, to the overnite porter, to the cleaners, couldn't have been nicer, more helpful and dare I say it, fun.. great place to have a group party, nicely-priced in these difficult times so as not to ask too much of people, and in a great location - our guests were really happy, and all were very complimentary on the location and the people who worked there.. thumbs up !

My wife and I just stayed at the Newgrange Lodge. The manager of a much tonier and pricier hotel in the area recommended them when should couldn't accommodate us. Now we have been traveling around Ireland and had stayed in the Shelbourne in Dublin so we're not exactly hostel stayers, but we found this hotel lovely. We had a large room with a comfortable king sized bed (with a very good mattress). The room was spotless (with the exception of some spider webs but it is Ireland and it is in the country). The staff, Helen and Romy (I may be spelling that incorrectly) were friendly and helpful. Helen helped us with some of the local sites and gave us a good recommendation for dinner about 2 km down the road. The breakfast was not "full Irish" but it suited our tastes.

The only negatives are the television (1970's style with only 4-6 channels) and no free internet in the rooms.

There was a preponderance of young-ish Europeans and a few older folks. This is a budget accommodation but it has a great location and friendly staff.

Great Hostel great location. Somewhere between a hostel and a hotel - expensive for a hostel, cheap for a hotel. Clean rooms and public areas, nice atmosphere, helpful staff. Very Comfortable. The public kitchen was very small, but never seemed crowded, lots of eating space in bright areas.

The room itself was tiny and dorm-like. However, it was clean and very convenient to the Bru na Boinne visitor center. Breakfast was weak and the greeting we received less than welcoming. Several tour groups were staying at the facility and the teen were loud and could be heard readily through the doors and walls.

The owner is really polite and helpful. It is right across from Brun na Boinne, which is a must see attraction. It's not as great as it looks on the website. Wifi didn't reach our room-that was frustrating because it is our only mode of communication and planning.
