From booking the hotel to the day we walked out, this is such an amazing hotel, it really was amazing from start to finish!
we arrived at the hotel at 2pm, one hour before check in and the really nice girl at reception was aware our baby of 8 months was tired, so she got a room ready for us straight away, we realised this wasn't the room she had already allocated!
room was just fantastic, clean, bright and just fab!
later in the evening we went to the bar for bar food, price was reasonable, and food was amazing so tasty, staff super friendly, even tho it was packed with wedding guests, they still managed to get to us over in the corner with menus and table service throughout the evening, always smiling and full of chat, also got room service later that night and only waiting a very short time!
Breakfast the following morning, laid out so easy, and super fresh food! and again staff were amazing and also so helpful,
highly recommend this hotel for a break away for a couple or a family!
5 stars!!

Room Tip: we stayed in 230, fab a spacious!! also had a carry cot in room

Just back from 3 nights with my wife and 2 year old daughter. Ideal spot for a couple with young children. Great quality rooms&bathroom. Staff excellent, especially at reception (good to see so many local staff working there-obviously pay&conditions good enough, so congrats to management). Restaurant food was excellent (and child friendly atmosphere while still feeling a fancy enough night out) as was bar food and breakfast. Only negatives were that the mini wildlife park is closed in winter (we spent a 2 hour drive listing the animals we were going to see to our 2 yr old daughter who was mad excited!) - not a deal breaker, just would've preferred to have that pointed out before. Showers in pool changing rooms very low pressure as noted in previous reviews, again, not a deal breaker&don't let it steer you away-still an exceptionally good hotel for a break-we booked 2 nights and stayed a third because it was so good. Will definitely return.

Our family recently enjoyed lunch here for my wife's 40th birthday. The service, food and occasion were all lovely. Our waitress Kim looked after us superbly. The Newpark is a superb hotel and a great venue for a special occasion. My wife was treated like a queen on her special day

Well, what can I say. This hotel in which I and my family (2 Adults, 4 Kids) have stayed four times now, is amazing. We decided to take a Christmas package after staying in the hotel for a week in July. We did not know what the Christmas experience would be like. It turned out to be just amazing. The food, staff, rooms and all the rest were excellent. I have stayed in many hotel around the world , including Ireland and the Newpark beats them all. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good break. Looking forward to our next trip already.

This hotel is fantastic, especially if it's a family party. Stayed there for three nights just after Christmas; we had a very young baby in the party and nothing was too much trouble. There's a fully equipped family room with fridge, microwave, TV, couch - they've really thought of everything. The staff are incredibly friendly, helpful, warm and welcoming. It's a very busy hotel - two weddings during our stay, The swimming pool and spa facilities are just beautiful. Wouldn't recommend for a couple/romantic break (maybe Christmas is just family time anyway) but for family groups, just about perfect.

Just back from a New Year family break and it was our best ever!
The hotel is about 10 min walk from town. Plenty of car parking spaces, hotel is modern and clean. Rooms are big and well fitted out with all mod cons expected. Reception is beautiful, bar is a great size with confortable chairs. Lovely atmosphere in there.
Swimming pool is great, nice and warm and a good size. The changing rooms are brill, big chairs for sitting and blow drying your hair, also 3 hairdresser hairdryers and a straightener.
Kids club was great, my 2 Boys didn't want to leave, the girls were great with them. Thanks x
Music in the bar each evening, food is a bit pricy but it's really good and great big portions. Drink is pricy as well, but service is fantastic and they are really nice to the kids, which makes a big difference to your holiday. Shane in the bar was fab, very attentive and nice. Also Jennifer who made the best hot chocolate ever!!! So my son said!
There was a very nice English waiter who served us dinner in the restaurant, the service was great and he was very nice, attentive but not intrusive.
New Years Eve started with a 20 min fireworks display followed by music in the bar. Then near midnight everyone got champagne, sambos and finger food.
Thanks so much it was our best ever, we will be back and will recommend. Your staff are a pleasure, well done xx

Great experience, hotel very busy including a large wedding.
Food and service was excellent which was pretty impressive considering the pressure the staff were under.
Similar experience at breakfast only problem was the bedroom was far too hot.
