Jurassic Newpark and Adventure Trail

Newpark Hotel has stood on the edge of Kilkenny city for centuries and has been in our family’s care for over two generations.


Newpark Adventure Trail is located at the rear of the Newpark Hotel within the Jurassic Newpark grounds. To access the park you must go through the back carpark of the hotel. 


Newpark  Fairy Trail takes you on a magical journey of our scenic grounds, visit the fairy cottages & be sure to look out for the fairys in the tress along the way! Send a letter to the fairies via our fairy letterbox, sit on the wishing chair & be filled with childhood dreams
