“Excellent Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We stayed here for the May bank holiday weekend, what a great spot!

Hotel is in an excellent location, very easy to walk to local pubs and restaurants. I didn't notice any noise around the place at night but we had a castle view room which probably attributed to this.

The room itself was gorgeous. So clean and spacious. Complimentary bottled water, huge bed and a safe, unusual for an Irish hotel I thought. I love hotel bathrooms and this was beautifullyd decorated. My one criticism is of the shower; the pressure wasn't great and there were a few short cold blasts. This is a very minor issue and wouldn't stop me going back.

Had breakfast every morning, very tasty and plenty of choice. Didn't eat in the hotel bar/restaurant so can't comment, but it was busy every time we walked past.

Hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful. Great stay, would highly recommend, I will be back!

Just returned from Kilkenny after a 4 night golf break and the Pembroke hotel were faultless in every department.
Great location in city centre.
Spotllessly clean bedrooms with great bathroom facilities,plenty of room for all our golf gear.
Breakfast was served buffet style and was excellent with everything you would want,we were a very large party (46) and had no problems getting served and the cooked breakfast were served hot.
The bar was kept busy and again was very well run.
Would recomend The pembroke to all visitors to Kilkenny
Hotel is well equipped to deal with large golf groups and all staff are ready and happy to help.
We will be back no doubt,

Room Tip: A room facing the castle is well worth it.

We decided to try the Pembroke Hotel for a change - outside it looks pretty ordinary - inside is entirely a different matter, it is, quite frankly, fabulous - beautifully designed interior, bedroom spacious and spotlessly clean with a view overlooking the Castle - the breakfast was fabulous but the evening meal was even more so..the whole experience made Kilkenny an even better place to visit. Well done to Management!

I can't think of even ONE complaint about this hotel. Spacious room, great view, fantastic service. Lucy is a prize on staff at this place. The hotel restaurant had THE MOST DELICIOUS SOUP EVER EVER. I left my jacket at the hotel and they still had it for me. Perfectly located to city centre and the castle. Great breakfast. Easy check in. Comfy beds. Super clean!! I had a lovely bath soak in the big bath. Everything was absolutely perfect.

We spent a couple of nights here recently and were delighted with the comfort and position of this hotel. Staff were extra friendly and helpful. Location is near the castle and a short walk from restaurants, shops and sightseeing. Our room was towards the back of the hotel so it was very quiet. Would definitely stay here again if I got the opportunity.

I spent one night in the Pembrook Hotel with a group of girls a couple of weeks ago for a hen night away, we had a really great stay. The staff were v friendly and really couldn't do enough for us. The rooms were clean and comfy.. Following a cocktail masterclass with Adrian we had a 3 course meal which was beautiful with a great atmosphere in the main dining area. Our breakfast the following morning was fresh and again delish! Thanks to Paul and all the staff.. I would highly recommend this very central hotel which was great value.. I'll be a definite returning customer.
