I was very happy with my stay at Newgrange Lodge. The staff were very friendly and helpful especially the staff member who waited up for me as I arrived late after reception had closed. Great facilities and comfortable bed - what more can you ask for!
We are two adult women who booked a bed in a dorm room. But as luck would have it, the dorm room was taken by French school boys, so the hostel staff gave us a private room at dorm room prices. Loved it! NewGrange Lodge is clean, new, modern, and has warm rooms and hot showers. (We were there in November.) The staff is friendly and knowledgable. Breakfast was way beyond the usual cereal and toast of most hostels. Very conveniently located just across the road from New Grange. Recommended.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay here. The only thing was that windows were open in both rooms, and we had lots of bugs flying around as a result. The bedding was clean, the atmosphere was great and the breakfast delicious and filling - there just needed to be a bug zapper somewhere!
The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. The rooms were as good as some hotels. The location was very convenient for visiting Newgrange. It was the best hostel we have stayed in.
On our first stay there was a problem with the shower not draining well and the water flooded into the bedroom. When this was reported, staff acted promptly and relocated us to a better room with a shower alcove.
