“Family Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

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.

Stayed at the Newpark on Sat 7th Dec 2013 for small Christmas Party night with some friends and relations ( 10 of us in all). Despite the fact that the hotel was completely booked out on the night with a wedding and another major function - the service and the whole experience was first class. The rooms were bright and spotless, the food was great and the staff were extremely friendly and efficient. They even had our party name printed on the menu! I don't normally do trip reviews but I do believe in giving credit where it's due. Thanks Yvonne and all at the Newpark for a very memorable evening.

Pros:
Food at Gulliver’s Restaurant very nice
Staff very friendly
Good value for money
Walking distance to Kilkenny Centre
Comfortable beds
Spacious bedrooms
Outdoor pool looks onto garden and is very pretty

Cons:
The décor is a bit confused and doesn’t all mesh together as well as it could with a bit more thought.
Fake plastic plants in the lobby and the spa let the hotel down

Stayed here on last Saturday night. Was part of an annual get together with a group of friends and our venue this year was Kilkenny. When we arrived, a wedding party had arrived before us, but despite the crowds in reception and the bar, check in was smooth.

Our room was spotless, and all of the public areas were well maintained. We then went to the bar, and it was very busy with the wedding party. However, there was a great atmosphere there, and I noticed that they continued to serve bar food for other guests.

We needed a taxi to get into the city, and reception arranged this with no fuss.

Beds were very comfortable, and breakfast was very good also. Check out was smooth.

I enjoyed my stay at the Newpark, and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Room Tip: We stayed at the far end of the hotel at the end of a long corridor. I expect it was for guests who...
