Afternoon Tea

The Newpark Hotel is located in a prestigious Kilkenny building, full of rich history. Though we offer our guests modern comforts, we honour our heritage by following time honoured traditions. Our very favourite of these is afternoon tea, which we serve daily. Whether you’re visiting our halls to celebrate a special occasion, to enjoy time with friends and family, or simply to treat yourself, we promise you an unforgettable dining experience.

Our afternoon tea is served as a traditional three tier tower of delights.

Each level is filled with an assortment of sweet and savoury treats, carefully created by our dedicated chefs. They use fresh and local ingredients, to create a mouth-watering selection. Their aim is to astound your taste buds, and so each option is chosen for its complementary flavours. In fact, this innovative menu is one of the many reasons we’re the top location for afternoon tea in Kilkenny.


The delicate finger sandwiches are classical favourites, updated with our chefs’ contemporary take on the cuisine. The warm scones are served fresh from the oven, and are perfect for piling high with clotted cream and homemade fruit spread. Meanwhile, the decadent desserts will be sure to tempt you. Whether you opt for a rich chocolate éclair, or a delicious slice of cheesecake, you’re guaranteed to savour the delights in front of you.

And of course, each afternoon tea is served with a fresh blend. We have a range of organic tea infusions on offer, from a traditional earl grey to a sharp oolang mix. Or, if coffee is your beverage of choice, our team of baristas would be happy to pour you a gently steaming cup.

For those looking for the ultimate treat, prosecco, champagne, and classic cocktails are also available.

Every afternoon tea is served in the comfort of our breath-taking lobby.

The bright and airy space features deep couches and plush chair, perfect for relaxing in. Chandeliers sparkle from the ceiling and a grand piano rests in the corner. Plush drapes adorn the wall, and each table is set with classic silverware. In the winter months, a crackling fire warms the lobby while greenery bedecks the halls. In the summer time, grand flower arrangements are scattered throughout the room, filling the air with their fresh scent.

Moreover, our dedicated staff are never more than a glance away, ready to assist you with any dining requirements you may have.
