SPONSORED: Newpark Hotel – a picture-postcard setting for weddings, spa breaks or a family day out
THE Newpark Hotel is a wonderful wedding venue. The hotel is beautiful; the staff are experienced and attentive, and the setting, in 40 acres of parkland and award-winning landscaped gardens, provides a picture-postcard backdrop for your big day.
You can see for yourself by making an appointment for a private tour of the four-star hotel on Kilkenny’s Castlecomer Road.
You will be taken on a journey through this amazing venue. You can view the beautiful banqueting suites which, if desired, can be combined to host weddings of between 150 and 320 guests, and offer the perfect setting for a larger wedding party.
Each banqueting suite has a bar area where your guests can relax in comfort and privacy. There is also a private garden adjoining the ballroom. It will be reserved exclusively for you and your guests on the night of your wedding.
The Newpark Hotel understands that every couple’s wishes are different. Whether you intend to have an extravagant wedding or a small intimate gathering of those closest to you, the dedicated wedding co-ordinator and banqueting team will provide a flawless personal service. Newpark’s culinary team can offer expert advice to all foodie couples looking to give their guests a wedding meal to remember.
When the big day comes, you will step out of your wedding car to the toast of your guests and enjoy a drinks reception in the Newpark’s opulent lobby or terrace and bask in the celebratory cheer.
In the summer months, chilled fruit punch and ice cream cones will be served to your guests, as well as a selection of gourmet canapes. In the winter time, mulled wine and hot chocolate will take their place and have proved equally delicious.
Guests are guided by a personalised table plan. As they find their seats, sunlight will sparkle off the chandeliers decking the ceilings. Opulent drapes frame the floor to ceiling windows and elegant floral candelabras will sit upon each table.
Couples will receive a complimentary Balcony Suite on the night of their wedding as part of their wedding package. They will also be offered reduced accommodation rates for a limited number of bedrooms. Your wedding coordinator will go through this in more detail when you are shown around the hotel.
Newpark has a fantastic reputation for weddings both within Kilkenny and further afield. But it is also famous for family-friendly facilities, fine dining and spa breaks.
“As an Irish owned family run hotel, we endeavour to provide a wholesome warm welcome with the traditional values of Irish hospitality,” says Cavan Dunne, the Newpark Hotel’s Business Development Manager.
The spa has an outdoor infinity pool and there is also an outdoor hot tub. The terrace has a retractable roof, there’s a fairy trail, a playground and a pet farm.
“Our wide range of facilities is perfect to accommodate families, couples, weddings as well as corporate guests with large conference requirements,” says Cavan.
