Our touring group of 45 stayed here for 2 nights. Our room was very nice with kind of a funky shower (hard to figure out). We had a light bulb on a night stand literally shatter when turned on with glass going everywhere. When reported to the front desk, we had someone there quickly to clean it up, replace the... More

We had to cancel with another hotel mid week due to travel changing on our honeymoon in Ireland. My husband found the Pembroke online and booked it explaining the situation. Neither of us thought much about it but when we arrived our room had towels made into swans in a heart shape on our bed and chocolates with "honeymoon" written... More

I stayed in the Pembrook fro two nights recently, and I have to say I was a fantastic experience. The room was absolutely fantastic, really well appointed and for the money I paid, outstanding value. The staff were amazing and really - well worth a visit. Denise

This is an impressive hotel that is chic and modern in a city full of antiquity. The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. Some rooms had views of the castle, but our rooms viewed the busy Patrick Street which was also entertaining. Our family truly appreciated the great desk service, room service breakfast, guidance and flexibility with our visit.... More

Our family of five stayed in two adjourning rooms at this hotel over two nights. Everything was easy from check-in to check-out. Internet access was more than good enough. The attached pub/bistro had Murphy's on-tap and the breakfast buffet at the restaurant was more than satisfying. The hotel is perfectly situated to explore the beautiful town of Kilkenny on-foot. The... More

Pulled up outside hotel and my heart stopped and thought 'what have we booked'. Fortunately the panic abated once we stepped inside. The receptionist was welcoming and efficient we were given 224. Also we were lucky to get the last parking space, which was a relief as I heard some murmurs about this being a problem. Our room was spacious... More

Fantastic hotel with great staff. Really enjoyed the stay in this hotel. The staff were well trained and were very helpful. They had no problems recommending places to eat or visit. Breakfast in the hotel was great. We had an evening meal there too and again it was lovely. Overall would return here and would highly recommend it.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel and we were not disappointed. The room was spacious, well appointed with modern facilities. The arrival we received on check in was friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed both dinner and breakfast in their restaurant, which was absolutely delicious. Definitely a great place to stay in a terrific location. The staff were delightful... More

Found this property to be better than average for a moderate style hotel. Check in handled well but not overly welcoming rather too businesslike and cold. Room was spacious , clean , average mattress, not anything outstanding . Good location next to castle and lots of pubs.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You have discovered the Pembroke Hotel, Kilkenny’s favourite boutique hotel, a relaxed oasis in the heart of the old city quarter. The 4 Star Pembroke Hotel is situated on Patrick Street, Kilkenny’s most exclusive street right in the centre of a city that is rich with medieval heritage and alive with a vibrant arts culture. With 74 comfortable, spacious, airy bedrooms, its Stathams Bar and Stathams Restaurant and a dedicated business centre, the Pembroke Hotel offers a peaceful welcoming charm with quiet luxury and comfort at its core. You will feel truly comfortable in this warm and friendly hotel where you are assured of a restful sleep in the heart of the city. Surrounded by Kilkenny’s most famous landmarks including Kilkenny Castle, Butler House and Gardens and the National Craft Gallery it is fitting that we take our name from the Earl of Pembroke for whom Kilkenny castle was built. Creativity flows through everything we do at the Pembroke Hotel, from our modern interior to our fresh imaginative food, so it is natural for us as a patron of the Butler Gallery to showcase a selection from their permanent collection. Whether your visit is for business, pleasure or celebration, we look forward to warmly welcoming you and to providing you with our thoughtful, naturally attentive and caring service in a relaxed atmosphere where you will feel safe and cared for. Quite simply – we are committed to looking after our guests. ... more   less
