      • Absolutely loved the leisure centre and the outdoor pool and excellent hotel. Great wedding venue, the lobby area is bright and friendly staff are saving grace at Newpark in Kilkenny. Room service is very quick, the food in the restaurant is superb and the leisure facilities are fantastic.

        Hot water was broken on morning of stay free wifi slow and did not work in all locations, the bathroom tiling was also pretty nasty.

      • I liked the location and the relaxed atmosphere. Excellent front of house staff and the lobby is bright spacious and modern. Reception early check in, the Family Rooms are huge and towels are complimentary.

        Common areas dirty, another taxi was only 5 on way back and the hotel was very busy as was the end of the school mid term break. Bed was not comfortable and food was poor.

      • The health centre was fantastic, Kilkenny was lovely and we spend a day walking in the park at the back of the Castle, our stay was an experience I will be talking about for a long time. Staff were really friendly, the receptionist was polite and professional, the room was also at a comfortable temperature. Again service was very good in bar/ and food was excellent.

        Bathroom shower area too tight, poor design and early morning departure reception not available. The restaurant had cold air blowing overhead we were frozen.
