“Last minute surprise”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We had to cancel with another hotel mid week due to travel changing on our honeymoon in Ireland. My husband found the Pembroke online and booked it explaining the situation. Neither of us thought much about it but when we arrived our room had towels made into swans in a heart shape on our bed and chocolates with "honeymoon" written on the plate. It was such a nice surprise! The staff was very accommodating & the hotel is within walking distance of Killkenny castle & other attractions.

I stayed in the Pembrook fro two nights recently, and I have to say I was a fantastic experience. The room was absolutely fantastic, really well appointed and for the money I paid, outstanding value. The staff were amazing and really - well worth a visit.

This is an impressive hotel that is chic and modern in a city full of antiquity. The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. Some rooms had views of the castle, but our rooms viewed the busy Patrick Street which was also entertaining. Our family truly appreciated the great desk service, room service breakfast, guidance and flexibility with our visit. Highly recommended.

Our family of five stayed in two adjourning rooms at this hotel over two nights. Everything was easy from check-in to check-out. Internet access was more than good enough. The attached pub/bistro had Murphy's on-tap and the breakfast buffet at the restaurant was more than satisfying. The hotel is perfectly situated to explore the beautiful town of Kilkenny on-foot. The staff were friendly, and the amenities met our expectations. This was a good base for us to explore Kilkenny.

Pulled up outside hotel and my heart stopped and thought 'what have we booked'. Fortunately the panic abated once we stepped inside. The receptionist was welcoming and efficient we were given 224. Also we were lucky to get the last parking space, which was a relief as I heard some murmurs about this being a problem. Our room was spacious and comfortable including tea making facilities. House keeping were efficient and the location of the hotel was ideal. The breakfast was the usual fare, nothing exceptional but all very nice. We thoroughly enjoyed our three day break and would return to this hotel again, although we would give the restaurant a complete miss next time. (reviewed separately, stathams)

Fantastic hotel with great staff. Really enjoyed the stay in this hotel. The staff were well trained and were very helpful. They had no problems recommending places to eat or visit. Breakfast in the hotel was great. We had an evening meal there too and again it was lovely. Overall would return here and would highly recommend it.

Very nice well located hotel...one down side was the breakfast buffet style and not very adventurous it would have been the perfect stay if breakfast had been table service with cooked to order eggs with a little style like eggs Benedict or florentine something like that.... if you are paying for the hotel a good breakfast would be expected for this kind of money.otherwise a great stay clean comfortable with handy city centre parking we also slept very well it is very quiet. Dinner in the restaurant was very nice very good steak and nice friendly staff too . Overall a great hotel but to be fantastic up your breakfast game .

Room Tip: We were on the third floor and had a nice castle view
