We stayed for three days over Easter 2014 in the Pembroke Hotel in Kilkenny. On arrival, which was earlier than normal booking in time, we had a nice pleasant surprise to find our room ready, which we appreciated after a long journey. The lady in reception, Suzy was very friendly and helpful, as were all the staff in the hotel... More

This hotel is very modern and clean. It is in an excellent location, within walking distance of all of Kilkenny's main attractions. We got parking just behind the hotel but if there had been no spaces, there is an overflow carpark just a minute or two away. Highly recommened.

My wife and I have just spent three nights at the Pembroke. The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring Kilkenny City by foot. The hotel is clean and reasonably modern in terms of decor. We deducted a star due to the standard of the breakfast. Although the typical Irish breakfast, cereals, bread and juices are available, we thought... More

Only stayed one night, Would have liked several more. The accommodations and the staff were excellent. The morning breakfast looking out on the garden was very enjoyable. Great location, right next to Kilkenny Castle. Plenty of nearby restaurants, pubs and shopping.

Perfect location for walking around town. A hop skip and a jump from the castle, pubs and resturarants. Rooms were spacious and immaculate. The bathroom was nice and big too. My mom and I were there for a wedding just a few blocks away and the location was perfect! Good breakfast in the morning and there was a nice bar... More

Great location, in the heart of the city. Great service from dining, front desk and housekeeping staff . Great night's sleep with no noisy late-night functions. What can I say. Wish every hotel was like this.

My husband and I had a lovely overnight stay here recently. The hotel is modern and staff are welcoming and helpful. There is a nice bar area which had a good atmosphere at night. Staff booked us into the Indian restaurant next door which had great food at excellent value. Parking is definitely a bonus and the lovely city of... More

This hotel was a great value in Kilkenny and Kilkenny is a great town to visit. Within walking distance to some great places. It's not a traditional Irish Inn, but a nice change up if you're looking for a more modern. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were clean and neat. The parking lot was nice to have... More
