2020 Award Winners FAMILY FRIENDLY HOTEL 2020

Newpark Hotel Kilkenny

The Newark Hotel

Very much at the heart of local activities, this popular 1960s hotel is just a ten-minute walk to the centre of Kilkenny. Following recent renovations, bedrooms are modern and comfortable and all amenities have been upgraded. Long established as a business and conference destination, the Newpark has also earned reputation for family breaks. There’s a kids’ club in season, for example, plus playgrounds suitable for children of different ages, and a movie room with games consoles for older kids. Best of all perhaps is the hotel’s unique pet farm - complete with alpacas, llamas, pigs, rabbits, chickens, geese, goats, donkeys and Highland cows, it is a great attraction, especially as admission is free. An attractive option initially thanks to the good value deals offered - and the range of dedicated family rooms and interconnecting rooms available - the family amenities are likely to make the Newpark Hotel a return destination.
