Reviewed 4 April 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights with the 3 nights B&B & 1 evening meal offer. We arrived on a Thursday night, hoping to have the dinner in the restaurant that night. We were told at reception that the restaurant was closed on Thursday night and we could eat in the bar. We were given a complimentary upgrade to a Superior Room which was much appreciated.
I had looked forward to the meal as I heard from others that the hotel is Coeliac friendly. The menu had notations for which items were GF. The menu stated that the chips were gluten free but when I went to order them the waitress (luckily) told me that they are fried with other foods. This would be unsuitable for any coeliac and if the hotel continues this practice I would suggest that they remove the GF from the chips on the menu. Overall the meal was nice.
We had a wedding in the hotel on the Friday and the food was very very good. A few people had commented how slow the bar service was on all the nights we were there.
The breakfast was ok, nothing special. The staff were very friendly at breakfast.
My only real complaint was the poor water pressure in the shower.
I would advise to not go near the petting farm if you have a weak stomach, very strong smell! Also price of drinks was very expensive.

had a great time with the kids at this hotel. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and the kids loved every minute of their stay between the pool and the Kids club which was great and we really enjoyed the falconry which was in the grounds the day we were there provided by the hotel. Our room was at the far end of the hotel which was great as it was very quiet. Buffet breakfast was plentiful even though it was busy, and there was no problem providing poached eggs for me! had dinner both nights and even the kids cleared their plates!
when we returned home, we realised our daughter left her very loved night time teddy behind. We phoned and the staff were quick to locate it and returned by post, so an extra thank you for that! Would highly recommend.

New Park hotel was a nice place to stay. It is a four star hotel with many amenities. We were just there over night so we really didn't get to see too much of what they had to offer. The restaurant food was good and we had plenty of hot water in the room. Bed was comfortable, too

Stayed here last night and had a lovely time! Rooms were very nice, clean and spacious. Shower in the bathroom was so powerful. I had a spa treatment which was so relaxing. Pool area was the best I've seen in a long time. Can't wait to go back someday.

We always choose Newpark Hotel when we visit Kilkenny as it is very central with great parking. Once inside the hotel we feel very welcome by the friendly staff who go the extra mile to make our stay a pleasant one. Love the Spa which is very relaxing following a days shopping around the numerous shops in Kilkenny city.

Just a great balance of comfort and convenience -- not trying to be something it isn't -- the hotel is warm and inviting with very friendly staff and you can even pet the cat and animals out back! Breakfast is well addressed and the staff is very attentive. Short drive or longer walk into Kilkenny.
