Kilkenny, and the Pembroke in specific, were everything my husband and I had hoped for in our brief stay in this lovely town. After paying more for tiny, cramped, spartan rooms in other cities, our spacious room at the Pembroke felt like complete luxury. We also wanted to be sure to thank two front desk professionals who went out of... More

A group of us stayed here for a hen party last year. A stylish hotel, very modern. We had a nice triple room that was good value. We had previously stayed in the Ormonde in Kilkenny and I definitely preferred the Pembroke. Only issue was my boyfriend rang the hotel and requested a bottle of champage for 70e be sent... More

The Pembroke ia a modern hotel with all of the amenities. Located a block away from the castle. Everything is walking within Kilkenny. The staff are amazing, we'll go out of their way to be helpful.he breakfast is plentiful.

Well located modern hotel near to the castle and many restaurants in this interesting old city. Our room was large and well equipped with a large comfortable bed and good bathroom with an excellent in bath shower. The receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful, keeping a car park spot for us whilst we unloaded. The decor is simple and possibly... More

Imagine my surprise when upon arrival I was offered a complimentary room upgrade which included breakfast! What a great way to start this hotel stay! The front desk people were extremely helpful - immediately directed me to the Black Abbey so that I could make the last Sunday Mass! The rooms were large and spotless - great amenities, also! Well...

Loved our stay in Kilkenny. The room was clean and nice, and the hotel is in a great spot. Could even see a bit of the castle from the window :) Great selection at breakfast. Would recommend to anyone wanting to be extremely close to town without being right in the center of it.

Dear youngmcdonnell, Thank you for your great review. I am thrilled you had such a great stay while in Kilkenny. Our location is key for visiting all of the sites in the city but as you mentioned we are away from the main centre of the night scene, the street we are on has solicitors offices and auctioneers, still central...

It was a whirlwind, as we arrived in Ireland at 5 in the morning (from Denver CO) and went to 2 tourist attractions plus other stuff, arriving at the Pembroke in time to get a parking space in their limited car parks which was great. The hotel is just what we needed for a good nights rest after finding out... More

This is a modern comfortable hotel - interiors could be anywhere in the world. No particular charm or character. However, good needs and big rooms with limited onsite parking. And the hotel is very central to this small and historic city so you can forget the car and walk. Staff were great. There was something wrong with the shower in... More

Our room was a pleasant and comfortable with a great view of the castle. Parking is a bit tight, but the hotel has an overflow lot about one block away from the hotel proper.

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
