Yep, this is the best spot to explore Newgrange from. And if it weren't for their location there's little to recommend concerning this property.
Besides the place being filled with poorly behaved kiddies running rampant at all hours the staff is questionable at best. Granted, the lady who checked us in was very nice. But her evening replacement found my request for a single functioning lightbulb on par with the most unreasonable of demands. One bulb in the bathroom, one bulb in the bedroom which doesn't work. Simple, isn't it? Not by a long shot. This (expletive deleted) seized the opportunity to have a Teutonic Meltdown directed at yours truly. Wanting to better see the glorified dorm room I'd paid good money for is not worthy of open hostility. Talk about a terrible attitude.
The next morning held yet another surprise. In the event you pre-pay for the morning trough meal, and upon seeing the fare served decline to imbibe their foul twaddle, expect yet another barrage of derision. Apparently the staff was gobsmacked by a customer not being willing to eat their horrific chow. They instantly assumed I wanted a refund which tells you they've encountered this scenario prior. But that wasn't the case. I just wanted to take a pass and move on. But no. I was treated to some low budget prison cook reading me the riot act.
