“A real gem!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We stayed for four nights at the hotel for a wedding and they pulled out all the stops for the wedding guests. From the moment we arrived and were met by a lovely receptionist all the staff were welcoming and friendly. Food both in the bar or restaurant was excellent. The wedding breakfast was exceptional. The hotel spa is great with an outdoor pool.

Thank you to all the staff for a lovely stay. We will be back!

Room Tip: It's a good walk into the centre of town but worth it when you get there.

We attended a wedding on 26th April at the Newpark and stayed for only one night but although we checked out at noon the following day, we didn't actually leave until 10.30 that night. We had the most fantastic afternoon tea, then dinner in Scotts Bar that evening after having had the Full Irish that morning. The food throughout our stay including the Wedding meal was top notch, and plenty of it.
The Hotel is fabulous from the foyer to the bedrooms/bathrooms, the bar to the restaurants not forgetting the Spa.
The reception staff were brilliant including the night porter who was so kind and helpful.
I could not fault the hotel in anyway and would 100% recommend it.

My family and I enjoyed a lovely Easter break at the fantastic Newpark Hotel Kilkenny. Every single member of staff that we encountered was warm, friendly and always with a smile. The hotel itself is beautiful with a fantastic foyer but the highlight for us was the outstanding kids club activities that were organised for the weekend. As any parent will know - if the kids are happy then you are happy!! Would recommend this hotel for its amenities and activities but above all for its truly lovely staff - we will be back!

I have just returned from being best man at a wedding held at the Newpark and what a wonderful time we all had. Stayed for 4 nights and the facilities were excellent and great value.

Could not fault a single thing. There was so much to do for kids with the farm, pool and pedal karts it really made being at the hotel a pleasure.

Everyone was so accommodating, we have a small daughter and the hotel while fully booked even managed to prepare a room ahead of time so we could check-in early so she could have a nap.

The staff could not be more friendly and helpful. I must say a big thank you to the Girls at reception and the staff on the big day who helped so much with getting the best man speech sorted. No request was to small, to big or too much trouble.

The food in Scotts Bar and the Restaurant was great and the Wedding breakfast was outstanding.

The only downside was having to come home! Cant wait to come back!

Stayed at Newpark whilst visiting relatives at Easter. Booked a family room as travelling with 2 older children and room was ideal as in quiet part of hotel and with a double and 2 singles which was perfect for us. Room was clean with all facilities we could want, staff were helpful and friendly. The pool and spa area were very nice (although felt treatments in spa were a bit pricey)and the falconry morning provided for kids was fantastic as very hands on and enjoyed by adults as well. The breakfast was excellent with large choice to suits all tastes and waffles went down especially well with kids. The one evening we dined in the restaurant was also good food and service. We had stayed at Newpark previously a couple of years ago but think it was even better this time and really family friendly so would thoroughly recommend.

We stopped here for a bite to eat on Easter Monday. Service was very quick and efficient even though the bar was very busy. The food was excellent, we could not fault anything. We will be back very soon.

The hotel is clean, comfortable and has everything a family would need. The pool is great and there are activities in the ground for the family.
The hotel also has good conference facilities and the meals are very good.
