We could not recommend the Newpark hotel enough. We had our wedding there on 30th June this year. We are so thrilled with how everything went with the venue. Many of our friends and family have said it’s the best service they have ever experienced at a wedding. The food was fantastic and the staff

were excellent. Our guests were thrilled with the quality of their bedrooms - as were we! Sinead was so helpful during the whole wedding planning process and everything felt effortless on the day. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a wedding or a stay.

We had our wedding here last Saturday. We cannot recommend this hotel enough for a wedding, night away, couples, spa day, or family break. It is THE BEST hotel we have ever stayed in. From the very first day we visited the newpark as a potential wedding venue, we were blown away. the staff have been

outstanding each and every time we have set foot inside the hotel. Sinead, who was our main contact in relation to the wedding was always very quick to answer any questions we had and we always felt well taken care of. Aga was the main woman on the day of our wedding and without her, it would not have gone as smoothly as it did. Dimitri was also amazing, I couldn't believe it when he approached me at 3 am still offering to do anything he could for us, I was amazed. Cian was our main server at the top table he went above and beyond for us, especially when I realised that I had forgotten my speech, he printed it off for me. Stephen was our main link on day 2, he was under pressure as double our original numbers turned up but he pulled it off and kept calm at all times. each and everyone of the servers on the day of the wedding and day two deserves a special mention as they were all outstanding, our guests kept commenting about how professional the staff were and how well-trained they were.

Thank you Aoife, Ada, Bobby, Chloe, Roisin, Grace, Lucy, Renata, Romy, Enya, Emma W, Meghan, Miriam, Yvonne, Jai, Jack and Sara.

My husband and I got married in the Newpark Hotel on the 11th of August 2023. Having worked in the Newpark Hotel for a couple of years I knew what to expect when getting married here, however, the service provided from beginning to end was exceptional. I cannot thank the staff enough for making the

process so straightforward. Sinéad, the wedding team, and the hotel management were so understanding when we got the news that a family member was unwell, they were so kind and understanding when we had to think about certain modifications to be made because of this. Aga had a firm handle on everything that went on during the day, it ran so smoothly and she was able to handle any queries that cropped up throughout the afternoon. The honeymoon suite with the jacuzzi, along with a fantastic breakfast in bed the next day topped it all off. We received so many compliments on the food and service. The Newpark Hotel really is the best in the business.

All our guests were extremely impressed. We had the best day and nothing was left unturned. The room was so beautiful. We loved every minute of our time here! Thank you so so much for making our day ♥️
