I stayed at the Pembroke Hotel for two nights. It has a great location and makes walking to any of Kilkenny's attractions very easy. The staff are friendly and helpful in all regards. The breakfast is also very good, though I was disappointed one morning to find that the buffet had either been cleared out or they weren't serving it... More

We spent three nights in a castle view room in early October 2014. We couldn't have been happier with the accommodations or the hospitality of the staff. The hotel is located a short walk from everything you'd like to do or see in Kilkenny, and it made a great base for exploring the surrounding area (the Rock of Cashel, Kells,... More

This is the perfect hotel for a weekend in the City. It is close to everything, very clean and has parking on site. Nice big room and ours had a lovely view of the castle. I wouldn't have any trouble recommending the hot to anyone and will stay again on my next visit.

Found the Pembroke to be an excellent hotel in a great location. Room was modern, spacious and comfortable. We had a lovely view of the Castle. Check-in staff were friendly and efficient. We ate in the bar and the food was very good if a little pricey for some of the options (same menu as the restaurant so they would... More

Nice staff, but parking lot was full so we had to park 4 blocks away. Lovely view of the castle from our room; however bed and especially the pillows (I believe they may have been made in the 1700's at the castle?) were very uncomfortable. The breakfast was mediocre and there was a long line waiting for a table. Nice... More

My girlfriend and I recently stayed two nights midweek at the Pembroke in Kilkenny City. First off, the location is excellent, Kilkenny is a very small city with everything within walking distance, the Pembroke is situated on one of the main streets, just two minutes walk from Kilkenny Castle. The staff, at reception and in their restaurant were very accommodating... More

The hotel was fine, not super wonderful and not awful. More of a standard business person's hotel, I think. Location was very good. Desk people were fine. Parking is available. Location is very good, in the center of things. Breakfast was fine too. By American standards, like a typical Marriott or Hyatt.

Stayed overnight here recently and was sorry we choose this hotel. On the surface it looks good. Bedrooms are clean, large and well appointed. The big let down was the breakfast. It was a buffet breakfast. The food was not hot and the choice was poor. The breads were dry and there was honestly nothing appealing about it. Probably worth... More
