We celebrated our wedding in the Newpark Hotel in February 2023 and would highly recommend this hotel to couples looking for an exceptional wedding venue.
Sinéad, the wedding coordinator is so professional and approachable and nothing is a problem to her. The hotel think of everything so there

is very little onus on the couple to ensure everything has been thought of.
We got the opportunity to drop stuff off at the hotel the week of the wedding and everything ended up exactly where it was supposed to be on the day, from gin cart signs right down to luggage.
The hotel staff could not have been any more helpful on the day of the wedding and the timing of the drinks reception, bell ringing and dinner service were timed with absolute precision. The staff have warm personalities and add fun to the wedding celebrations.
The meal itself was absolutely delicious and our guests are still talking about it 3 weeks later, in particular the mushroom soup!
The bar staff were great fun and many people got to know them personally over the weekend. The children in our party got to avail of Jurassic Newpark which made their weekend.
We had our night 2 celebrations in the Terrace Bar which was ideal for what we wanted and the service and attention to detail was excellent yet again.
We had an absolute ball and I am so glad we chose the Newpark Hotel as our wedding venue.

Where to start even I don't think it's possible to put into words how perfect our day was, I mean the hotel itself is a dream location for a wedding then decorated for Christmas meant it was more dreamy I was in my element. But the icing on the cake was the staff from our ceremony to which took

place in the hotel until the final call for drinks in the residents bar everything was looked after so thoroughly by every staff member that was a part of our day. A special mention to two in particular, Sinead the amazing wedding coordinator, you will not find better she is as cool as a breeze nothing is too much trouble for her and she would put you at ease from the moment you walk through the doors to book your special day until you walk through to doors for your big day. She is there every step of the way and I'd never be able to thank her enough for how attentive and friendly she was in the 2 years I spent planning my day. Aga is the other wonderful lady, we had the pleasure of Aga looking after us on the day and look after us she did with such care and attentiveness nothing was too much trouble she was a good laugh and felt more like a friend who was going to make sure nothing was out of place on the day. Two absolute Earth angels we were blessed to have them take care of our special day. Everyone applauded how amazing everything was food, decor, wine but the staff was mentioned so much in the praise as they are all a credit to the hotel. My one and only problem is that it's all over I'd live the day on repeat if I could, I wouldn't change a minute of it and it's all down to our amazing choice of venue for our big day, you will not be disappointed with your big day at the Newpark Hotel. Thanks for everything guys.

We got engaged in Feb and decided to get married in the same year.
Newpark were our first option and Sinead was so helpful. There was no pressure at the beginning, she gave us all the options and time to think about it before we finally agreed on the date. Once we did everything was just so easy.

Sinead went above and beyond for us. We have 2 kids and Sinead suggested adjoining rooms so we knew they were well looked after and the kids area upstairs is amazing. On the day we wanted a little play area in the ballroom and this was done and there was no issue. It kept the kids busy during the meal and we knew they were safe. The staff on the day catered for the kids great and getting milk for the baby's bottle was never an issue.
Even the lead up to the wedding Sinead was there for any little question that we had no matter how silly it was. The staff on the day were amazing and everything ran so smoothly.
The hotel left a nice little surprise in the bridal suite which was also nice.
It's just all those small things make such a difference and the fuss about us as bride and groom on the day along with our kids was so special that we will never experience again. They really make your day your day.
I can't recommend Newpark enough.
