“Wonderful stay in a nice spot.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

We were at the end of a 2 week trip across Ireland, and needed a place to sleep on the long haul between Kinsale and Dublin. The Newpark looked fine online and was well-priced. When we got there - WOW. Beautiful, open, gracious hotel with large and comfortable rooms. It was a nice bit of unexpected luxury at the end of a long trip. It's a bit off the beaten path, and walking into town took longer than anticipated (20 minutes) so this wouldn't be a place I'd choose to explore nightlife and walk back afterward. Restaurant was mediocre - ok if you're tired and don't want to go out, but nothing of note there. Highly recommended for a comfortable and gracious stay.

Not a wink of sleep due to a turkey and a pheasant outside the window, not to mention the various hen parties going on....their cackling just added to the noise. There was a charge to print a boarding pass and we needed to leave early so there was no breakfast available which we paid for. Did I mention that as we left in the morning the hallway was littered with broken glass - presumably from all of the 'birds' gone wild.

The Newpark Hotel was a lovely hotel and the staff was GREAT! They were very friendly and so helpful. We took a great cycling tour of Kilkenny and the staff at the hotel made sure we knew where we were going and made sure we were all set to go. They really go above and beyond. I would highly recommend staying here, you'll love Kilkenny and you'll love the Newpark hotel!

Lovely hotel with excellent facilities, especially when traveling with a baby. There is a family room with everything you need, a little small animal farm out the back and a wonderful pool which suited both the adults and our little fellow. Staff were really helpful, rooms lovely and the food was excellent. Highly recommend it..

Newpark holet is the best by far for people with young children my little girl loved staying there in the day time love the pool and we could not get her away from the farm but when it came to nightime that was when the crying started she want to go home to her own bed the staff seen how upset she was and got her a colouring book and ask what Teddy she would like so they gave her a mickey mouse Teddy for the stay and everything was right with the world we can't wait to go back

Room Tip: Pay that little bit more for the more up to date room

We stayed at The Newpark Hotel recently it was our first stay and certainly won't be our last - it was fantastic from beginning to end! We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon tea on arrival which was perfect and they even made special gluten free options available for me which was a lovely touch - it was delicious I'd highly recommend :) As we were travelling with our little girl she was delighted with the leisure centre - we managed to fit in two visits during our short stay - the staff were very helpful and friendly in both the leisure centre and the hotel - everyone had a friendly hello which is something that is great to see in hotels - it really is a home away from home experience and we had one of the most relaxing stays ever - next time we'll have to stay longer!
Tip: we availed of the hotels picnic basic and headed out for a drive to the local Discovery Park it was fantastic and the picnic was just perfect
Keep up the great work and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

We are just back from a last minute break staying in the Newpark Hotel, Kilkenny with our 3 girls (3.5, 2 and 8 months) and I couldn't recommend it more for young families. The staff were so friendly and obliging throughout and hotel offers every imaginable amenity for those travelling with children including a kids pool, playground, giant chess, petting farm (complete with donkey and pony!!), a baby room with feeding chair, changing table etc, great kids' menu - the list is endless!! Ages since I was so relaxed away with the kids!!! Our room was bright, modern and really spacious despite offering a double bed, 2 twin beds and a cot! We ate in the bistro, restaurant (excellent menu), the bar (carvery) and the bistro and food was very good. Only downside was no air con in the bedroom but probably only because weather was so warm not usually a big issue I'm sure!! Will definitely be heading back!
