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.

Good location, but...
We only stayed here due to its proximity to Newgrange megalithic site and the ability to get there early for tickets. It was very noisy the night we stayed, with a huge racket at 3am which woke us with a start. The room was small, pretty basic and not in great condition. Sound-proofing was poor. The double bed had a big sag in it on my side, so I slept in the single bed which was also crammed into the room. While the sheets were clean, the bathroom wasn't particularly so. The breakfast (included in the price) was OK - cereal, juice, toast and a pancake maker, if you wanted. But there were a lot of flies in the breakfast room.
