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.

I recently took a sister trip to Ireland and we stayed at Pembroke Hotel in Kilkenny the first week we were there. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff was tremendously helpful and friendly. Anything that we needed and including arranging taxi rides the staff was on it. As we found out the people in Kilkenny soon became like... More

Pros: The Pembroke is located close to city center, near shopping, restaurants, pubs and the castle. Decor is modern and feels brand new. We got a "castle view room" for just a few euro extra, and so glad we did! Large room with lots of storage space, big comfy bed, spacious bathroom, coffee/tea making, everything super clean. Since we were... More

My wife, son and I spent three nights here. It was quiet enough to leave the window open at night. The shades kept the room dark: late sunsets/early sunrises make this feature worth looking for. Good breakfast served downstairs (eggs, bacon, sausage, etc) in a buffet format, included in the rate. The hotel is close to the castle, main attraction

Looking at the hotel from the street, there is nothing to impress you. Step inside and everything changes. The staff was excellent and very helpful. Rooms were spotless, comfortable and functional. Bed was great as was the traditional breakfast. Near great restaurants and shopping.

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
