We had attended several weddings at the Newpark Hotel Kilkenny pre covid we loved the atmosphere there every time. We booked our wedding back in 2019, and Sinead, the wedding coordinator, was an absolute joy to deal with. She talked us through all of our options and was always available to answer

our questions.

Obviously, things changed as the months passed during the pandemic, and while we had hoped it would have returned to normality, that wasn’t the case. Sinead & Paul did all they could to ensure we had the best day possible while adhering to the government guidelines. While we were initially worried about the smaller size wedding, it turned out to be a really fantastic day. The staff at Newpark Hotel couldn’t have been kinder, and this is something we had both commented on at previous weddings we attended there.

We also opted to have our “Day 2” at the Newpark with the BBq option. This was a lovely relaxing day, and they even allowed us to enjoy the hotel facilities before the Bbq.
We could not recommend the Newpark Hotel highly enough as a wedding venue. We look forward to returning there soon.

We had the most amazing day on July 1st, thanks to all the teams at the Newpark Hotel! It's been a difficult time to plan a wedding, but Sinead was absolutely fantastic in coordinating everything despite the rescheduling of our wedding from last year. Thanks to Sinead and the team, we didn't have to

worry about a single thing. Everything was taken care of so we could just focus on our day! ALL of our guests commented on how beautiful the set-up was and how fabulous the food was. All of the staff on the day were so ATTENTIVE, and Thelma and again particular were fantastic in looking after us all! We couldn't recommend the new park enough for a wedding. Thanks guys for everything!

Firstly, anyone who has been unfortunate enough to be organising their wedding during a pandemic will know exactly how difficult it has been. Needless to say, if it wasn't for the Newpark Hotel, I think we would still be waiting. They could not have done enough for us. From start to finish, they

were with us through it all. Nothing was too much trouble. I can genuinely say, hand on heart, they could not have done any more.

Sinead is an absolute dream to work with, and I promise she will meet all your expectations, if not more. We are honoured to have met her. The staff, in general, were so helpful, supportive and attentive. The Manager Paul, Thelma and the barman Sean, could not do enough for our families and us. The food on every occasion was outstanding. Nicky is a talented chef who also went above and beyond to cater for our needs. If the Newpark could pull off such an amazing day during tough and challenging times, I can only imagine what they are capable of when we finally get back to normality. So if you are considering The Newpark Hotel for your Big Day, go for it!!! You will not be disappointed.

Thank you once again to all at the Newpark. We can't wait to come back.

The Newpark Hotel saved our wedding day and made it the best day ever!!

We had booked a different hotel in Kilkenny back in 2019 (pre-Covid!) for our wedding in May 2021. Just one month before the big day in April 2021, we were advised that the hotel we had originally booked would not be open

during the restrictions in place during May. We were absolutely distraught and left with no place to host our reception. We frantically emailed some other hotels in Kilkenny and were over the moon when the Newpark Hotel was free on our wedding date.

Our first correspondence with Sinead and the team at Newpark put us at ease. They told us not to worry. We had less than 6 weeks to plan our wedding day, but the team could not have been more helpful and easy to deal with. Sinead helped us plan out the whole day. We were able to have the most special, fun day and didn't feel stressed once dealing with the team.

The room on the day looked amazing, and the food was delicious. Every staff member we met was friendly and helpful and could not do more for our guests or us. The bridal suite was also amazing.

Newpark Hotel will have a special place in our hearts forever. Massive thanks to all the staff for giving us the most amazing day :)

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
