From start to finish we could not have asked for more from the Newpark Hotel. They went above and beyond to create a memorable day for us. Sinead the Wedding Manger was such a pleasure to deal with and nothing was too much hassle. The staff throughout the hotel are a credit to the hotel, not only

are they friendly but very attentive too. Aga and Dimitri who looked after us along with Sinead on the day could not do anymore for us. All of our guests were blown away, by the room set up and the quality of food on the day. We would highly recommend the Newpark to any newly engaged couples, the hotel has all you could ask for and more!

The Newpark Hotel is truly the best wedding venue. We cannot thank Sinéad Fortune enough for all she done for us to make our special day happen on 25th August 2022. She was so patient and understanding with us from day one especially after having to postpone. Anything we requested was always

accommodated, nothing was an issue at all in terms of requests we had and even let our 2 doggies be a part of our day! We had the entire ceremony and photographs all done at the hotel, and it was so nice and relaxed and plenty of lovely areas and backdrops on the grounds that made for gorgeous photographs! The food for the canapés and the meal was outstanding. The Hotel also provided the one-man band for our drinks reception and our guests commented on how lovely his singing was and played good songs which made for a great atmosphere. As well as Sinéad, Aga and Dimitri also made excellent effort to ensure all ran smoothly on our day and all of the waiting staff and bar staff too. Every single member of staff looked after us so well on our special day and the day after and are so friendly. We will always be grateful to The Newpark Hotel for making our wedding day one of the best memories of our lives. We looked forward to our special day but having it at The Newpark Hotel made it an extra special day. Thank you so much. Forever grateful, Niall and Janine X

The Newpark Hotel was our first choice when it came to our wedding reception. We were absolutely thrilled to have secured a date with them, as we loved the hotel and had really positive experiences at other weddings in the venue over the years. Sinead Fortune and her team were a pleasure to work

with - super approachable and extremely professional. Sinead and the team at the Newpark Hotel know exactly how to organise a wedding reception, and they literally take every possible bit of stress away. On our wedding day, the team at the Newpark Hotel were fantastic both to us and our guests - nothing was an issue and the service given was to the highest standard at all times. The waiting staff were so attentive to the bridal party and all the wedding guests, and the food served was piping hot and absolutely delicious. Our wedding reception went so smoothly, and I know this was down to the experience of the staff and coordinators at the Newpark Hotel. If I were to do it all over again, I would choose the Newpark hotel without any hesitation! We will continue to return to the Newpark Hotel on a regular basis and for all future family events. I cannot recommend the Newpark Hotel enough.

The Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny was an absolutely amazing wedding reception venue!

From the very beginning we found all of the staff at the hotel to be very professional. The wedding coordinator Sinead was absolutely fantastic to deal with and made us feel so relaxed throughout!

One of the

main things we wanted for our wedding day was a really nice meal for our family and guests and the Newpark did not disappoint! As soon as we had our menu tasting we were blown away by the quality of the meal and the presentation was gorgeous! (My favourite was the champagne sorbet!) any guest that we spoke to after the wedding had only good things to say about the meal.

The Hotel has some beautiful spots for pictures too and this was great for us as we didn’t want to waste time on the day away from our guests travelling to another location for photos so it was ideal to be able to get our pictures taken on the grounds.

We got married on one of the hottest days of the year and when we arrived to dinner in the ballroom the air conditioning made it so that us and the guests were as comfortable as possible!

I can’t recommend the Hotel enough to any other couples planning their big day. The staff made sure we and our guests had the best days possible!
