“Lovely hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

Stayed for 1 night on the 13 th march.room with breakfast for 2 was 89 which was great value.the room was spacious and clean.after a day out watching the racing at cheltenham I ordered a chicken salad sandwich and coffee which arrived within minutes and was delicious and at 7 euro was great value.breakfast was a buffet and again the quality and choice was excellent.the breakfast room could do with some music as it felt like a bit like a library.would definately come back
Well done

My wife and I recently spent a wonderful weekend at the Newpark Hotel. The staff were absolutely fanstastic as were the hotels facilities. We enjoyed everything that the hotel had to offer and we were delighted with our decision to stay there. We will, without hesitation recommend the Newpark Hotel to our friends.

This was our first stop for the night after arriving in Ireland on an independent driving tour through Sceptre Tours. I wondered about the accommodations on the tour because the tour seemed to be so inexpensive, but all of the hotels (Newpark in Kilkenny, International in Killarney, Clayton in Galway and Ashling in Dublin) were very nice—not all luxury, but more than adequate.

Our room at Newpark was roomy for 3 adults. The beds were very comfortable, and the staff was quite helpful. This included making recommendations for places to eat and drink and getting a cab. The accommodations included a breakfast buffet, which had the option of a full Irish breakfast, but also plenty of other options for those who might not like black pudding.

I am surprised by the recent review by buglamour, especially given the other good reviews of the hotel. However, I take it with a grain of salt, since (s)he says he is a hotelier and says he's from Kilkenny. Why would a hotelier from Kilkenny be staying in another hotel in Kilkenny? Hmmm.

Room Tip: Not so much to choose a good room, and not the hotel's fault, but our Garmin GPS had the wrong l...

I have just spent a wonderful weekend in the Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny.
It was a beautiful hotel, the rooms were large and decor throughout the hotel was lovely.
The staff were all extremely welcoming and couldn't do enough for us.
As we were part of a conference, we had all our meals at the hotel and the food was delicious.
All in all, I would most definitely recommend this hotel.

I had the most enjoyable experience with the Kilkenny Newpark Hotel! Myself, and 8 others booked in for a celebration and we were slightly demanding in that we had vegetarians, mum and baby and so on - we could not have been better looked after regardless of these!
The reception staff were very helpful, Joe at the bar was very accomodating with our drink orders and our waitress in the restaurant couldn't have been any better, she was fabulous.
And lastly, we were greatly impressed with the food and the rooms - and of course the impressive outdoor jacuzzi. Basically, where do I rebook?!
