Stayed on a Sunday, arrived later around 6pm. The receptionist was so lovely! She gave us a map with amazing restaurant suggestions, overall so friendly and welcoming. It was a quick process to check-in. As I had a debit card not a credit card, I paid to pay before, which wasn't a problem. Our room was clean, the shower was...

I had breakfast recently before a work related meeting. The breakfast was lovely,especially the scrambled eggs.The Pembroke is in a really central location,and is only a hop, skip and a jump away from the Kilkenny social scene. Highly recommend.

Hotel was a good choice with nice rooms, clean and an excellent location so we could walk to explore the town. After motorcycle riding all day we weren't wanting to have to gear up and ride to get to the action so the hotel worked great!

The staff were extremely nice and the restaurant was good. It is an easy walk to all of the attractions and the hotel is in a rather quiet area. I was with a tour, so I'm not certain about price. The others in our groups seemed satisfied, too.
