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

Arrived at The Pembroke Hotel "blear eyed" after a transaltantic flight with no sleep. We checked with the registration around noon, not really expecting to find a room ready for us. Not only was the room ready, but after hearing my wife and I discuss the need for a few hours "nap", the gentleman at the desk suggested a wake... More

Lovely rooms, bang up to date decor. Dinner in hotel was really tasty and great value. Breakfast equally so. Carpark a bit of a nightmare but overflow carpark very convenient. Reception staff a little distant and please note check in is at 4pm, which is quite late. Bar staff & restaurant staff extremely efficient and friendly. Location is the real... More

Stayed for one night on a trip through Ireland. Hotel is located in the center of town, 15-20 minutes walk to the train station which serves Dublin Heuston. Front desk was very friendly, efficient and courteous. One bedroom suite was very spacious (compared to 4 other accommodations used in Ireland), with sitting area and even a flat screen TV. Restroom... More

Location, Location. A nice modern hotel located on Patrick St. near Kilkenny Castle. Within walking distance to Rothe House, St, Canise, The Black Abby, Information Office and the main shopping street. We got to Kilkenny very early before the check-in time but the female receptionist was very friendly and made us feel right at home. Helped us park our auto... More

We only stayed here for one night, but could have easily stayed for longer. The hotel is very central with friendly staff. Our room was large, clean, quiet & very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious too! Kilkenny is a great place - genuinely friendly locals, & lots going on. I can see why people choose here for their Stag/Hen dos.... More

The front desk staff were so genuinely friendly and welcoming. Thiw was the case from check-in and check-out and every time in between! Our group had four rooms reserved, and we arrived at the Pembroke much earlier than check-in, and the staff at the front desk was able to give us one room and we were all able to store... More

Quite a nice hotel but let down by poor service. At breakfast i don't expect to have to toast my own bread in a 4 star and would prefer table service. Very slow bar service and no dressing gowns in our room despite being advertised.
