The Pembroke is nicely located and convenient to Kilkenny Castle and The Hole in the Wall pub, a not to be missed attraction - both are within an easy 8-10 minute walk. The room was quite large and provided quiet, comfortable sleeping. Its decor was very simple with a motif leaning toward modern. The buffet breakfast was good, but a... More

Good hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. The location of the hotel is perfect in the center of the city. Free private parking spaces are very convenient. Dinner is of good quality. The only small improvement point to be mentioned is to improve the noise isolation for the rooms located at the front side.

We stayed here two nights on the first leg of our trip to Ireland. We really liked this hotel. We arrived much too early for our reservation because we drove straight from the airport. Our room wasn't ready, but the lovely young lady at the front desk asked the staff to clean it early and we were able to go... More

Excellent location, service and room. Good value for the money. The room was large with a large bathroom. Excellent breakfast included. Convenient to the big sites in Kilkenny (walking distance) and just around the corner from the lovely castle (don't miss touring the castle). Staff was top notch, we did not eat in the restaurant but the bar was very... More

Hotel is really excellent, rooms clean modern and spacious. very central for the Castle and all of the pubs and restaurants. however Kilkenny itself appears to be the Stag and Hen capital of Ireland as every restaurant, bar and hotel appeared to be hosting multiple weeding parties. A quiet weekend in the country? nope, but a great party city in... More

Hotel is very conveniently located around the corner from Kilkenny Castle, only a short stroll from the mail shopping street. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. Found the lounge very quiet. Had food there the first night but ate out other nights as we felt it was lacking in atmosphere. Breakfast was good but the addition of fresh fruit salad... More

The Pembroke has an ideal location. We visited with a rather large group of people and the location was a huge success. Pleasant rooms, helpful and friendly staff. Very nice breakfast. Definitely would stay there again.

My wife wanted to stay in a city center at least once during our Irish excursion. It turned out the Pembroke Hotel was the perfect choice for lodging in the heart of Kilkenny. It's just around the corner from the castle and an easy walk to many pubs, restaurants, shops and the Smithwick's Experience. The hotel offers free off-street parking,... More

Well-appointed, big room and bathroom. Free parking for our rental car, but beware if you have a big car: parking is quite narrow; furthermore it appears to be 'first come, first serve'. Tasty breakfast and helpful staff, except for one girl on reception. Location is very good: the castle is right around the corner and the other landmarks, as well... More
