Stayed here with my husband on a weekend without kids. Have to say for the price we were a bit underwhelmed. From reading about it I thought it would be more stylish but the room was very disappointing and rather bland. Very comfy bed in fairness and a nice view of the castle but the room could have been a... More

We arrived in Kilkenny early afternoon and the staff at the Pembroke couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. We were booked in and shown to our rooms which were lovely, spacious and airy. The big downside to this hotel is the bed and pillows which were hard and uncomfortable, everything else was great. The location is fabulous and Kilkenny... More

We arrived at Pembroke Hotel after a long flight, and though there were no parking lots, I was pleased that they allowed my partner and kid to check in promptly. The staff were friendly, and we were given a room on the ground floor, which suited us fine. The room itself was fairly large, but we could heard people chatting... More

Dear Digijo Thank you so much for such positive feedback. Kilkenny is a fantastic place to visit and we would definitely recommend two nights for anyone thinking of visiting our beautiful city. The castle, Kilkenny Design Center and Ireland's Medieval mile are all less than two minutes walk making the exploration of Ireland's Ancient East that little bit easier. Thank... More

I stayed in the Pembroke Hotel on the May Bank Holiday weekend 2015. I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. I had heard it was good and we weren't disappointed. We had twin rooms which were large, clean and comfortable. Our deal included breakfast which was really good. There was loads of choice and you could have as much food... More

a lovely hotel in a wonderful position. breakfasts were ok - though self service tends to affect the quality of the hot food. But the choice was great. In the evening, the menu was limited and we decided to eat out instead

Have just returned from a weekend in this wonderful hotel. Ideally located in the buzzing city centre within walking distance of everything but has the feel of a cosy country hotel. The staff were beyond amazing and no request was too big for them. All the staff were friendly and welcoming and were always smiling. a special thank you to... More
