We had our wedding in the Newpark in November and it was the best day, better than we could have imagined, Sinead and the whole team went above and beyond for us, not only on the day but in the lead up.

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.
