I don't know where to even begin. We had the most amazing day. Everyone was stunned by the hotel and the effort and attention to detail of the staff. We were all treated like royalty and they looked after our guests so well.

Thelma, Seán and Aga were just unbelievable! They literally could not

have helped us more.

The Newpark staff were phenomenal to deal with for the last year and just made everything so easy for us! Sinéad was an absolute pleasure to deal with from our first email and Paul was so helpful also.

The hotel looked amazing on the day but the staff really did everything they could to make the day absolutely perfect.

Everyone had nothing but absolute praise for the hotel. The rooms were amazing, the food was out of this world. The relaxed atmosphere was just heaven!

I don't have the words to thank the Newpark enough! We had the best day of our lives and I would recommend the Newpark 100 percent to any recently engaged couple. They will do everything they can to make it amazing.

Thanks again,
The Corcorans

We were lucky enough to get married in the Newpark hotel on December 31st, 2020.
We began our planning in 2017 right after our engagement and the instant we viewed the Newpark we know we we're making the correct decision!
The second we met Sinead we instantly felt comfortable simply due to the

fact she is fantastic at her job! We knew that Sinead and the Newpark team would be able to provide us with the day we wanted!
Covid-19 made every effort to impact our day but throughout 2020 every time we contacted Sinead she instantly put at us ease and always made sure we knew the efforts the Newpark would go though to give us our big day!
Although we were only able to have 25 close family and friends join us we were blown away with the attention to detail and professionalism all of the staff showed!
All the little touches like a bottle of bubbly and Christmas trees in our suites just show the level of detail.
We had loads of comments from our guests on how great the food went down as always; the meal was fantastic!
You are not only treated like a bridal couple on your wedding day at the Newpark as they make the effort every time you enter the hotel to make you feel extra special!
Special mention to Niall, Sean, Fidelma and Paul for making our day so special!

Myself and Jamie could not have picked a better venue for our wedding, from our first visit to the hotel we knew it was the venue for us. It stood out, the team were so welcoming and so professional to deal with. And even during the covid times it was stress free changing dates and plans. No matter

we could not have asked for better. No stone was left unturned and we couldn't have been happier with how the day went. Nothing was an issue and staff went out of their way to ensure everything was running smoothly and that we enjoyed our wedding day. Again going back to the food, so many compliments and people still say to us now about the quality of the meal. I could not recommend the Newpark hotel for a wedding more and it was the best decision we made in terms of our wedding. I cannot wait to go back and stay in the hotel to try and re-live some of the amazing memories!!
Thanks so much to everyone in the Newpark hotel again, it truly was amazing!!!!

Planning a wedding at anytime is stressful but even more so during a global pandemic. The constant uncertainty and last minute changes were far from how we imagined we would be building up to our big day but it was all so worth it in the end. It was better than we could have wished for and we feel

very lucky to have celebrated our wedding in as normal a fashion as possible in these rare times
Sinéad and all the team at Newpark were on hand at all times and never more than a quick phone call or email away. They took everything into consideration and allowed us to celebrate our wedding in memorable way while taking other health considerations in to account . They took the stress out of it for us and were flexible to our needs and the changing times. The function room was adjustable for our smaller numbers and the garden was beautifully laid out and private from the rest of the hotel . The food as always was top CLASS. We also had a small celebration on day 2 in the terrace. The weather didn't play its part like the previous day but nobody seemed to notice, the bbq was beautiful and plentiful. Thank you to all at Newpark for giving us something to celebrate in 2020.
