I have been staying in this hotel for a large number of nights in recent months and find the staff to be wonderful - very accommodating. They remember your name and are always pleasant and happy to help. The facilities of the hotel are great - free parking, a lovely pool, spa and gym, so it is a great place to stay - especially if you are there for more than a night!

I would highly recommend it to anyone! :) Thanks to all the staff there for making the last 6 months feel like a home from home! :)

Family break for 2 nights... bar and waiting staff very accomodationg for food especially as we where travelling with 2 young children under 18months..at beckon call no matter the hour especially the gentleman who was on reception saturday night!!!!.
Pros--warm pool for children with lovely facilites for adults too, brilliant open plan reception area for relaxing in the evening with the children, fantastic kids club although our 2 where too young for it. But from speaking to other parents heard glowing reports. Family Room was spacious
Cons--No heating in our room even though we informed the reception staff and porter, which was not resolved especially with it being a cold december weekend with babies as well as not been able to dry swimsuits for babies for the pool, this was not satisfactory, but we managed, mentioned this to reception staff on departure to ensure no other family had to endure this, got an brief apology and the lady moved on which was less than satisfactory. Limited food menu in restaurant for adults.
Overall, would recommend it but shame about that final recognition of the hotel staff ability to deal with rooms problem once it was identified on 1st night. If this tiny issues where polished on may return with other family members and friends.

I, my wife and my two adult sons had a four-night stay at the Newpark (the first night being complimentary) from 23rd - 27th December. On arrival, we were checked in very promptly at reception. We then went to the bar for a meal which was unbelievably good. On Christmas Eve, we had a 5-course meal; Christmas Day, we had a beautiful lunch, and in the evening we had a delicious buffet. St Stephen's/Boxing Day, we had another 5-course meal, with breakfast each morning. Management and staff could not have done any more to make our stay better. Although the hotel was very busy, they seemed to make time for all guests. The only downside was the band on St Stephen's night were not up to the mark, however it did not detract from a very pleasant few days. We hope to return again next Christmas. Many thanks to all at the Newpark.

The staff here were lovely. Very helpful. Very friendly.

We got a family room and it did the job well.

My only disappointment was the breakfast: it was EXPENSIVE and, while not awful, it was dull and not functional. On our third day we went for breakfast at the Kilkenny design centre. It was far nicer and cheaper.

Family break for 2 nights went so well. Staff friendly and visible management presence made for promp service all over hotel. Food good in new bar. Pool and pet farm great for kids. City centre is short walk and so much to do there. Will return.

My lovely daughter and I spent our first night in Ireland at the Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny; it was a very pleasant introduction to Ireland. Our room was not overly generous in size, the bathtub kind of small, but amenities very nice: nice bath soap, shower gel, lotion. We dined across the street at a nice neighborhood pub. The beds were comfortable and warm. Hairdriers located in the bureau, one of the drawers. I guess they don't want you to use them in the bathroom.

Room Tip: We stayed only one night at this hotel, and did not eat breakfast or supper there. Pub across the st...

I have to say that the staff at the newpark hotel are just amazing. We stayed for two nights a group of ladies all ages. The staff especially Stephen were very attentive and accommodating. The spa relaxation room was fabulous as well as all the leisure facilities.

The food, the breakfast menu has everything you could ask for, great range. We had afternoon tea, omg the chocolate and raspberry creme brûlée!!!! Yummy. We had the set menu for dinner it was gorgeous also.

I will definitely be back to this hotel.
