Was travelling with three other adults and three small children and stayed Sunday to Tuesday. The hotel was very clean and the staff couldn't do enough for you. A special thanks to Aaron who had only started, his service and manners were excellent. Would highly recommend this hotel, facilities and food service was brilliant.

Many thanks for a great stay.

Couldn't rate this hotel highly enough. We stayed midweek and unfortunately had to cut our trip short by one night. Staff couldn't have been more understanding and there was no problem in amending our booking. Fabulous room on 4th floor with large balcony - perfect for the weather.
Speaking to other guests with children, it seems this was a superb choice for families as well as us. Would return without hesitation!

So unusually for me I was travelling with a toddler and this hotel was the perfect venue for us. There's a mini farm, falconry classes/sessions, a nice nature trail, playgrounds and a pool, so plenty to keep an energetic small person amused. The staff were rally professional and clearly well used to dealing with a busy/chaotic environment and the children, as there were lots. In fact if I didn't have a child with me, well it wouldn't really be a romantic hotel.

The room was a great size and we were away from the main thoroughfare so nice and quiet. The only thing I didn't like was this awful ledge at the back of the toilet that meant the seat wouldn't stay up with out some gymnast moves.

The breakfast was really top notch, huge selection great quality, I did notice people had to queue later in the morning to be seated but we were fine. And we used out evening meal in the bar which had a really good menu.

Overall it was perfect for what we needed

This is my third visit to the New Park Hotel Kilkenny. My mum and I always enjoy our stay here so visit there regularly. We are always impressed with the rooms ( we stayed in one of the Superior rooms this time) and its worth it but the other rooms are fab too. We had three nights here and ate in either their bar or the main restaurant. The menus are extensive so lots of variety and of a high standard and very reasonably priced. The breakfasts are the best selection I've come across in any hotel I've stayed in Ireland so far with everything on offer that you can want. The staff are always so helpful and friendly and very attentive to ensure your stay is enjoyable. There is a kids club available too which is great for those visiting with children and their farm out the back is enjoyable for all ages groups. We also went to their 'falcon experience' which was great. Would highly recommend this hotel for all groups, couples or family. They have a pool, infinity pool and various treatments on offer too so caters for all. Will definitely go back.

Room Tip: The superior room was fantastic

We have just returned from a 3 night stay and it was great. The grounds are beautiful and onsite activities like mini farm and falconry are perfect for kids. Our (superior family) room was lovely and the bathroom was a really good size with a separate shower and bath. The staff were very professional and down to earth. We had dinner in Gulliver's restaurant onsite and the food was superb! My only gripe is that there is no air conditioning in the rooms, it was much too hot in our bedroom and sleeping was difficult. There was a portable fan for us to use in our room, which we had to have on all night to cool the room, but it was still pretty uncomfortable. If there had been air conditioning, I would have without question, given the hotel 5 stars.

Room Tip: A superior room is well worth the extra, try if you can!

Just back from 2 night stay at Newpark Hotel and would highly recommend it. We were a family of 4 (2adults 2children, 6 & 2) staying in classic family room; lovely big bright immaculate modern room. The hotel has everything and were so helpful and friendly. While it has so much for kids, the hotel itself is beautiful, well kept and opulent. Staff excellent and welcoming. We all wanted to stay another day!
