We had driven here from Dublin and the hotel has a big private carpark next to it for guests and staff. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to Kilkenny Castle and shops. Our room was large and clean and came with breakfast. Breakfast is a buffet spread of a full Irish breakfast. It also comes with cereals... More

This was our second stay at Pembroke Hotel. This hotel was perfect for our first night in Ireland. It was very quiet for a good night's rest after a long day of travel. Our room was very clean, large and quiet. We had a view of the Castle. I'm not sure the view is worth the extra money. The hotel... More

We stayed at the Pembroke for two nights while visiting Kilkenny on vacation. The location is very good and close to most restaurants and attractions (the castle) in town. All are within walking distance. Our room was clean, modern, and relatively quiet. We had a view of the castle from our window. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The... More

We stayed one night at the Pembroke. The hotel was walking distance to most everything in Kilkenny. The rooms were spacious, beds comfortable and bathrooms large with plenty of space to unpack toiletries. The only complaint was the rock hard pillows! Breakfast was a good mix of cold buffet and hot cooked items, although nothing was made to order. Nice... More

Meant to stay one night, will probably stay three, as our language didn't come with us. Hotel is in a great location, looks nice, room well maintained and staff extremely friendly and helpful. Couldn't ask for more (maybe fresh vegetables in breakfast...).

I stayed here for one night while travelling in Ireland. Room and hotel were clean and well maintained. Staff were courteous, helpful and friendly. My only suggestion for improvement would be to have the gate for the car park better sign posted as arriving late after a long day on the road, it wasn't clear to me that this was... More

We enjoyed a fabulous overnight stay in the Pembroke hotel in October. The location is ideal for seeing the city of Kilkenny, with everything in walking distance. Our room was so comfortable and just what anyone would want on a break away. The added touch of the swans made from towels on the bed made it even more memorable! Staff... More

The Pembroke Hotel is a excellent hotel in Kilkenny City Centre. The hotel is 2 blocks from Kilkenny Castle. Easy walking distance to restaurants, shopping, sightseeing, and pubs. The hotel is well maintained and gives the appearance of being a luxury hotel without the $$$. The breakfast buffet was exceptional. The room was large, comfortable, and well appointed. The off-street... More

We stayed here for one night during a 5 day trip to Southern Ireland. The location was ideal for visiting Kilkenny with just a short walk to restaurants and places of interest. The room was very clean and comfortable and we had great views of the castle from our room. The staff were very helpful and friendly and we were... More
