We travelled from Dublin to the northern regions. Then from Ardare all the way south. We never made a booking and stayed in fantastic hotels. The ONLY booking I made except for Dublin, was in Pembroke, Kilkenney. I chose this hotel because of the ratings. I am so sorry to say that it was soooo average. If you do not... More

Great location for short break in Kilkeeny just meters from Castle and Park, shops are meters away in the opposite direction. Room was spotless, spacious and met all our requirements. Very quiet at night too. Breakfast had everything from full irish to pancakes and fres fruit. Small car park at back of hotel was full so had to walk a... More

Good location for walking everywhere in Kilkenny. Off street parking was a plus. Room was comfortable and clean. The room safe was hard to open and I had never seen one you had to read the instructions to operate as it was no intuitive. Breakfast was average with a selection of hot and cold. Front desk people were very helpful... More

We loved this hotel. The staff could not have done more for us and it's in a central location (without being noisy - remember that Kilkenny is very busy with revellers at the weekend and hosts a lot of hen and stag parties). It's the perfect place to stay if you want to explore the town. I couldn't fault it... More

After doing our research at home, we were glad we chose this hotel for our two night stay in Kilkenny. This hotel is in a very convenient location. A short walk to most areas. The rooms are quite nice and the hotel has very much of a boutique atmosphere. Convenient and secure parking on the grounds. Excellent Irish breakfasts! Extremely... More

This hotel was excellent, very large spacious rooms, very clean and fresh unlike the photos. Only downside was had to park in the overflow carpark which is less than a five min walk and is free. Breakfast was very busy and I think in future we will pay the five euro and have it in bed and there are more... More

The Pembroke Hotel is in the perfect location to take in all Kilkenny has to offer. Within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, many pubs and local attractions around the city. The hotel itself is simple but very welcoming and clean. Loved the infused water in the lobby entrance. The breakfast had a good variety of hot and cold options to... More

Having seen the reviews I really looked forward to this trip with my husband. Despite confirming our reservation by phone, our room was given to other guests. We were offered a standard twin instead - finally changed to a standard double, not the superior treat we hoped for. Although the staff acknowledged this was their mistake, no real attempt at...

It's hard to know what else to add to the reviews on here... an absolute gem of a hotel. The location of the hotel is superb - right in the heart of Kilkenny which makes exploring the town an absolute doddle. The staff we encountered were lovely - especially the ladies at the reception desk. The room we had was... More
