We planned to stay one night at the Pembroke, but extended it to 2 nights as our room looking out at the castle, was very clean, quiet, and comfortable. There is a lot to do around Kilkenny, the the young lady at the front desk was particularly helpful in making suggestions and answering questions. We would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is located in a great location. Walking distance to everything. Staff was so friendly. Bed was very comfortable. Would highly recommend staying here if you're traveling to Kilkenny. We did have a view of the castle from our room.

On a driving trip we took a chance on this hotel, after searching Hotels.com for a place in Kilkenny. We were able to get a room for the night, very nice room, very clean, very comfortable. We had breakfast the next morning too, which had a large buffet selection. Great location too! Everything within walking distance. The Concierge was very helpful in making restaurant, pub, & sites to see recommendations.

Just back from a fantastic two night stay in the Pembroke hotel in Kilkenny. The hotel is beautiful and in a very central location. I couldn't speak highly enough of the staff, especially Michael, who served us in the restaurant last night. He organised a georgeous wheat and gluten free meal for me without hesitation ( which doesn't happen everywhere ). The food and the rooms were lovely. I will be recommending the to others and we will definitely be going back.
