What a joy to discover this First Class, modern hotel in historic Kilkenny, just a short walk to the Castle and main street. The reception staff were extremely helpful and the bedroom was a delight. Quiet, comfortable bed, spacious and excellent bathroom with luxury fittings. Very convenient free guest parking. Very flexible with all our requests. A really lovely hotel.

What a nice hotel! The staff was attentive, the location was ideal, the rooms nicely appointed. The staff made dinner reservations for our group of 7 at a wonderful restaurant down the street. The full Irish breakfast buffet was useful. My only negative comment is that the car park behind the hotel is small. They have a lot offsite as... More

The Pembroke is just a block away from the Kilkenny Castle. It's close to the bars and nightlife, but far enough for some peace and quiet. The room was very comfortable and the hotel staff was extremely friendly.

Booked a double room on a Monday night end of September. The hotel is situated on the main road running through the old part of town (100m up from the river heading west). This doesn't mean that its noisy, the hotel rooms face away from the main road and are double glazed. Some of them also have views of the... More

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
