We cannot thank the Newpark Hotel enough for an amazing wedding day and experience. It was really a 5 star quality service. A special thank you to Aga and all staff members who were so professional, friendly and helpful on the day. Sinead Fortune was a pleasure to work with, she was always at the end of the phone or available through email. All our guests really enjoyed the day.

All the staff in the hotel were amazing. So easy to work with and very attentive to the fine details. We had a two night wedding in the hotel and we did not have a single complaint from start to finish, everything was amazing. Sinead was always so easy to deal with and very responsive. The hotel has amazing baqueting staff who were so attentive on the day and made sure our guests and ourselves were all really well looked after. We are so happy we chose The Newpark for our wedding and would 100% recommend to any bride & groom.

We were so happy with the newpark. We couldn't fault any of their services. From the first day we viewed the hotel we were very excited about having our wedding there. We had our ceremony and reception in the hotel. Everything flowed perfectly. Sinead our wedding coordinator was brilliant. Very helpful and very quick to respond to any questions we had. The food was amazing and everyone commented on how nice it was. Everyone also loved the wine. We would highly recommend the newpark Hotel. Wish we could do it all over again.

Newpark was our favourite family hotel and we celebrated many important occasions here so it made sense to have our wedding here. The wedding was a very small intimate wedding. Sinead was always available to discuss the details and gave me recommendations for local suppliers. The wait and bar staff were very attentive. Newpark made having a wedding in pandemic conditions easy going. We had a meeting with Sinead the next day to discuss how everything went, which everything went fantastic. We stayed 3 days in total and had a great time every day. The only reason I am marking a 4/5 is for an item that went missing when collecting our wedding bits to leave the hotel. During our ceremony we had a lot of sentimental things such as a sand ceremony and letters to each other. Our letters we wrote to each other were put into a sealed box with bottle of Jack Daniels, which we planned to open on our 1st anniversary. When collecting the wedding bits the letters were missing which was disappointing. The staff at the time said that someone would contact us about this but they never did. I followed up with an email but no contact about it. I completely understand the two letters may have been mislaid, there's no monterary value and possibly nothing that can be done, however, we would have appreciated some follow up about it. So it is the lack of follow up after the wedding that was disappointing.

We had a small wedding ceremony of under 30 people, they exceeded our expectations. They gave us great value on everything especially when you compare them to other places that offer the same. They were always quick to respond to any queries we had, they were always there to meet and help us with any unusuall request we had, We would like to say special thanks to the whole team especially Nicky he is a real gem if it wasn't for him who knows how this ceremony would of turned out, sometimes it seemed as if he was reading our minds, his hospitality and management skills are top-noch

5 star + service from start to finish! We cannot say enough about the Newpark Hotel, Kilkenny and the staff which made our wedding day run like a oiled machine not to mention the beautiful venue and decorations. The feedback we have received back from our guests is all so positive and one guest even commented that her brother owns a 5 star hotel but that the Newpark food and service was far superior! I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL ENOUGH. Everything from the staff, food, venue and value for money was fantastic. A special mention and thanks to Sinead our Wedding Co-ordinator and to Nicky who ran the ballroom the night of our wedding - if you want people in the know with experience and who are so professional and put you at ease then these are the people to deal with. Nothing was a problem or too much effort, before, during or after the wedding. We are so delighted we picked this venue. Plenty of food, parking, rooms and ballroom space for guests. We had approx. 240 people attend on the day and there was plenty of room and everyone from young to old were catered for. Even the children had a 2 hour fully supervised area with games and entertainment while their parents could enjoy dinner and socialise. If you are considering the Newpark I pomise you will not be disappointed - we have high standards and these were most definitely exceeded. Thank you to all the staff at the Newpark for making our day and our guests day so special and memorable!

Newpark Hotel was the only wedding venue we looked at, as we knew how well they catered for all guests and how much we enjoyed weddings there in the past. We didn't want to go anywhere else! Sinéad, our wedding co-ordinator, was great to deal with; professional, personable, quick to respond to emails, and no task or query was ever too much. She made the planning and decision-making very easy and gave great advice. We knew we were in safe hands. On the day, the hotel was decorated beautifully for Christmas, the staff were very friendly, attentive and accomodating, and the delicious food was a highlight of many people's day. Thanks to Nicky on the day too, who looked after the bridal party so well and even managed to settle some nerves at the top table! I can't speak highly enough of this venue and the staff. Thanks to all.

Wedding in Newpark was organized by event manager Sinéad Fortune she was very efficient and was always accommodating, nothing was ever a problem or an issue that she was unable to solve., We had the utmost confidence in our choice and the service was outstanding, the staff all seem to be happy and like a family wanting the same thing for you the newly weds to have the best day ever, The food was the talk of our quests, the quality the quantity, the top table was served with with music and performance by waiters & waitresses, I thought I was on a cruise, the standard was exceptional. The room was perfection I cried when I saw it before dinner, Nicki the manager on that weekend had every reason to be proud, he does a good job and runs a great team catering to 200 quests. That’s only the reception the rooms top class everyone loved their bedrooms and how comfy the beds were, the breakfast staff so friendly and dealt with a large crowd day after the wedding. We stayed on until Tuesday not wanting it to end.

Newpark hotel was an amazing place to have our wedding, from the first meeting with our wedding planner to the day itself everyone was so professional and friendly. We were made to feel so special not only for the day of the wedding but the entire weekend we spent there. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the wonderful staff that work there. Everything went off without a hitch!

I cannot recommend the Newpark Hotel high enough. The staff are amazing and pay attention to every little detail. Everything was carried out by all perfectly. The service was the absolute best and the food was to the absolute highest standard. All our guests were completely blown away. The Newpark takes away all that talk about bridal stress, they have everything and more to make your day a dream. The day they created for us was an absolute dream come true. Management, staff, service, food and atmosphere was impeccable. It is like this every time we visit the Newpark. Thank you all for making our dreams a reality

We had an amazing Wedding Day at The Newpark. Sinead, Niall and their team were fantastic to deal with and just gently took control on the day for us making sure all was ok but not over the top either. All our guests commented on the fantastic food and service. We had our second day celebrations there also and the open farm was a big hit with the smaller guests. Cannot recommend the team and experience at Newpark enough.

I would highly recommend the Newpark Hotel. Their level of service from the events team, to the receptionists, to the bar staff and waiting staff was outstanding. What I loved was that this service wasn't just to us as the bridal couple but that all our guests commented on the service too. The food was gorgeous and they were able to provide plenty of options for coeliacs that tasted delicious too. It rained on our day but the hotel look so beautiful that it didn't take away from the day at all. If I had to choose all over again I would pick them time and time again.

The Newpark Hotel for a wedding-in 4 words- out of this world!!! I could not praise them enough in every aspect of our wedding day. On the run up to our wedding day, the ladies at the office contacted us weekly and guided us on the next steps. They ensured we had everything organised ahead of time and were such a pleasure to deal with. We had a lot of different elements happening at our wedding, such as the band playing before the meal and the Newpark were more than happy to accommodate our wishes. The servers always had a smile on their faces and very polite. The manager at our wedding could not do enough for us. He was always by our side without being 'intrusive' and made sure everything ran smoothly. The quality of food was excellent- tasty, pleasing to the high and the chef accommodated to all dietary requirements. All in all, the Newpark Hotel is an outstanding hotel. They went above and beyond our expectations and most importantly they left us wanting nothing. We are so pleased we went with the Newpark Hotel and have no doubts they will continue to deliver the dream day to wedding couples in the future.

The new park was fantastic. Food was gorgeous atmosphere was amazing and the ball room and bar are both comfortable which is what guests want at a wedding. Mark is an amazing manager, the new park do not realise how brilliant this man is. No matter who we spoke too my husband would only listen to me if I said mark said something. From day one he totally made me feel at ease and if there ever was any issue there was never a hesitation to meet us and clarify. I got mark any time I needed him on phone. I had extra requests as in table plans and different favours at different tables and this was never any problem anything I asked was done and done perfectly. Nothing is a problem to this hotel. Staff are friendly and courteous at all times. We called into hotel only last week nearly a year after we got married and mark was over to us chatting about our honey moon. Seriously nice man I can't praise him enough. Also ger alley is brilliant too making us feel important at all times and made me feel like our wedding was most important to him too and not just to us. He looked after us too both before and after the wedding and als polite and just very friendly. Niall the night manager was very nice too and good crack. I really can't say a bad word about this hotel our wedding day was amazing and that's a huge thanks to the management and staff of the new park hotel.

We could not rate Newpark Hotel highly enough having held our wedding there last month. From the day we started dealing with Newpark, we were treated in the most professional and friendly manner. Nothing was too much trouble and the suggestions and tips given to us were fantastic. The day of the wedding has been described to us by many of our guests as "perfection", from the food (which was out of this world) to the service to the hotel decor itself. We would highly recommend the Newpark Hotel to any future brides considering this venue. Yvonne (wedding co-ordinator), Mark, Ger and Niall were all an absolute pleasure to deal with and took any stress out of the day. We had the most memorable, perfect and amazing day and can not thank the Newpark enough as it was all down to their hard work, attention to detail and top class service.

When we set out to plan our wedding I had very definite ideas about what I wanted, when I spoke to Yvonne I was sold, straight away she totally got what we wanted!we were celebrating our wedding in two parts, we were having 35 guests for dinner in Newark and a party the following weekend in a dublin venue! We wanted to host our guests in a beautiful venue, in intimate smaller space because of numbers. We didn't want to be over formal, we wanted a personal high quality service, and food that people would enjoy!!! We wanted the best with small numbers we really wanted it to be extra special...... So we booked the Parksuite in the Newark for a banquet table. Every detail I wanted, the Newark team delivered and even added considerations that I hadn't even thought of!!! Every staff member we met from porter to general manager was amazing!! The courtesy 's and hospitality of this team can not be understated!!!!! I can't tell you enough about how good they all were..... Little things like the wedding coordinator Yvonne introducing you to the duty manager niall that you would be meeting the wedding day!! Being greeted by name by the Gm every time you visit!! All my guests new their waitresses by name and everyone couldn't say enough good things about how lovely everyone was!!! Each of my guests have sinced returned to the Newark and have said they got the same service on the second visit!!! I have never stayed in a hotel that gives you such exemplary service!!! We were not spending giant amounts of money with this venue but the level of service and the attention to detail we might as well have been booking out the entire place!!!!Can't recommend them enough.....super venue, good. Service, team and accommodation!!!!!! As I mentioned at beginning of review, we were having wedding celebration in two parts....the only pitfall of booking the new park is dat their incredible service quality and value really showed up our second venue( which was very average) and highlighted what great hotels and teams the Newark has!!!!

Overall all we were delighted with the Newpark; food, service, atmosphere were all excellent and perfect on the day. When we initially booked we were dealing with a very friendly and competent lady who couldn't have been more helpful but then another lady (the weddings co-ordinator!) took over our booking who was anything but helpful and made things unnecessarily stressful. Her reputation preceded her so we knew to ignore her and that everything would be perfect on the day; which it was. All other staff were excellent.

We cannot thank you & all the staff at the hotel enough for making this very special day in our lives so memorable & enjoyable. It would be our pleasure to recommend the hotel to anyone for their big day or for a visit, not only because of the beautiful surroundings in the hotel but more importantly because of the staff there- absolutely first class. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Thanks again.
