We arrived here after 1 pm , but they do not start check ins until 4pm, which in our experience is unusually late. Thankfully we could leave our car at the hotel and spend some time in this lovely town. The position of this hotel is ideal , with restaurants and all the main sites an easy walking distance. The...

This hotel is perfectly located for all the best attractions in Kilkenny. The car park is a little small but such a bonus to have one on site. All the staff are polite and friendly, with some great suggestions for places to visit. Rooms clean and comfortable with good size bed. Despite the hotel being full and wedding/stag/hen parties we...

A good hotel. It was clean, the room was very spacious and the bed was comfortable. The included breakfast has a decent selection. Great benefit is the central location and the free parking behind the hotel. There is no particular thing that makes this hotel stand out.

The hotel is beautiful and very well located. We had a view of the Kilkenny Castle. Modern and clean rooms. But the staff are one of the best we've encountered anywhere in the world.

This hotel is within very easy walking distance of all town attractions. Upon arrival entrance to the car park is gained via electric gates providing access to the rear of the hotel.

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
