Newpark Hotel Kilkenny wins gold at the Virgin Media Business Gold Medal Awards, being named Ireland’s favourite family-friendly hotel. This prestigious award recognises excellence in the hospitality sector.

At the heart of Newpark Hotel’s success is the Jurassic Newpark experience, an interactive dinosaur adventure park adjacent to the hotel that brings the wonders of prehistoric times to life for guests of all ages. This unique offering is complimentary for hotel guests with unlimited entry.

The hotel offers family-friendly experiences, boasting high-calibre on-site amenities that cater to guests of all ages. Last year, it launched the Jurassic Bounce experience and provides numerous complimentary activities for young guests, including an adventure trail, tree-top adventure playground with zip line, mini wildlife farm, on-site go-karting, a nature walk, and fairy trail. Additionally, it features an indoor games room, Jurassic Juniors Kids Club, child-friendly restaurants, and pool facilities. Newpark also provides spacious deluxe family rooms and interconnecting rooms for added flexibility.

Additionally, the hotel caters to adult guests with amenities such as a relaxing infinity pool, rejuvenating treatments at Escape Spa and Leisure Centre, various dining options, and live music in the lobby.

Niall Dunne, general manager, Newpark Hotel Kilkenny, said: “This is a momentous achievement for our team. It is a testament to our unwavering commitment to providing families with extraordinary experiences. We have been innovating and creating and building and evolving over the past few years and to be recognised by industry experts is an amazing feeling.  My co-GM Mark Flynn and I want to give thanks and credit to our Newpark Family, all the people we work with, our local suppliers, and the Flynn Hotel Collection without whom our success would not be possible.”
