“Fabulous Newpark Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I stayed at the Newpark Hotel Kilkenny on 22nd March 2013 while attending a Wedding Reception. I had a fabulous stay from start to finish. Excellent quality of food, and hotel services all round. Higly attentive staff who were always "on the ball" to our needs. Excellent standards all round. I'd love to have had the opportunity to extend my stay, but couldn't. All the more reason for me to return again at some stage in the future!

Had a fantastic family weekend with a 3 year old in tow in Newpark for St. Patricks Weekend. Superb facilities, the pool, mini-farm and playground kept us busy and the staff couldnt do enough for us. The real treat with this hotel is the Bar and Restaurant, great food and the staff were always making sure my daughter was looked after for breakfast and dinner and always smiling at her and playing with her. They really went out of their way for families from what I could see.
Couldnt recommend this hotel highly enough for a family getaway, really great experience with staff who make you feel at home.

Hotel was nice place to stay and located within walking distance of the city. There were several large weddings in the hotel.. This meant that at times it was chaotic. Rooms were average and the shower could do with being upgraded.
Breakfast in the morning was average, not very relaxing..
Aveda treatment was great and the relaxation room was nice but it could do with more magazines.

Spent 2 lovely nights. The staff, especially Maggie and Marita were so kind & helpful! Thanks to the 2 staff members for charging the battery in our rental car too. Loved the pub & restaurant & the breakfast buffet had a good variety to choose from. The bathrooms were lovely. I wish I had time for the spa -maybe next trip!

Just stayed in the New park hotel on 15th and 16th March. The staff were friendly and welcoming, even though there were large weddings on in the hotel on both nights of our stay, there was relaxed feeling in the hotel.. it was ten minutes walk in to Kilkenny.

We were in one of the older rooms in the hotel. The room was clean and bright. However didn't get a great deal of sleep. The bed was lumpy and dipped in the middle which was a shame.. And got up aching.. Looking forward to getting home to my own bed. I'd advise avoiding room 260 if you're staying any time soon.

This was our first stop after a flight in from the US to Dublin. We were fortunate enough to check in early and get some much needed rest before heading back out to check out Kilkenny. I loved the access to the various electrical outlets without having to have a converter. You will need a car to travel further into town but the location is good otherwise. There is plenty of parking. The onsite restaurant is good and the included breakfast in the morning was delicious. There was plenty of room for our family of four.
