Newgrange Lodge - Hostel, Donore
Nice hotel, great location
We stayed at the lodge for a nearby wedding, and it was the best option for our budget. Rooms are clean and comfortable, there are plenty of nice communal areas so you don't have to keep to your room. Plenty of breakfast options the next morning. Staff in reception are very friendly and extremely helpful. Its literally across the road from the newgrange visitors centre and there is plenty to do in the area. So we will be coming back with the kids next month for a holiday!

Good value. Friendly service. Adequate room with compact ensuite. Good breakfast. Quaint village with several pubs, a few places to eat. 40 minutes drive to Cliffs of Moher.

Hostel Heaven (of sorts.)
All in All this is a nice place to stay in summer with all the buzz of the kids adventure activities. HOWEVER. Management please note. If you are going to charge Hotel rates (albeit lower end prices) Then really you need to up the game on the breakfast availability front Why not just let people make their own breakfast after Ten am. Easy just leave the stuff out for us. Other than that minor detail Very nice place to stay with lovely helpful staff. Bit expensive for a hostel though.
