“I would go back tomorrow!”
Reviewed 6 October 2012

Kilkenny is a must see. It is absolutely beautiful. I wish we could have stayed there for more than one day. The Pembroke fits in with this town perfectly. The room are spaceous and wonderfully decorated. The bed is extremely comfortable! The staff is amazing. The breakfast was one of the best we had on the trip. The hotel is perfectly located, right in the center of town. The free parking is such an assset. When I return to Kilkenny, I would definately stay for one than just one day, and I wouldn't stay at any other hotel! The Pembroke is a jewel in the Emerald Isle!

The Pembroke was absolutely delightful. The staff was amazing and helpful, and our room was perfect. The room was much bigger than a typical European hotel room. We had a lovely view of the castle and everything was within easy walking distance. I will definitely stay there again!

Arrived here for a one night stopover on way to Dublin late in the afternoon and luckily it was just before the Kilkenny Hurling team arrived back in town for their Premiership parade. Town was abuzz with excitement, staff at Hotel were very friendly and helpful in reception, bar and restaurant, breakfast was help yourself and plenty to choose from and good quality. Room was spacious clean and well kept, highly recommend. close to town and all major attractions are within walking distance

Stayed one night. Reception, bar & dining room staff very friendly & helpful. Dinner very good and reasonably priced. Had requested a quite room but noise from traffic kept me awake most of night and most of morning. Dustbins being emptied at 5 a.m. also disturbing not conducive to being in a position to work next day.

Emergency cord in bathroom was broken, staff were sent to check immediately on being notified.

2 sets of toiletries should be provided in twin rooms when being used by colleagues.

Would stay again in room at back of hotel.

Room Tip: Choose Room at back of hotel

My wife and I stayed at the Pembroke Hotel for three nights recently and must say the accommodations and dining were excellent. The price of our stay included two dinners and three breakfastst. The room was large and very modern. The bath and shower were beautiful and well-appointed, the TV and wifi worked just fine, and the bed was comfortable. The view from our room was the Kilkenny Castle and small, green gardens. Gorgeous! The pub and restaurant had very nice decor and the food was excellent. The staff were, in a word, superb. As new visitors to the city we were given very useful information as to shopping and local sightseeing. We also arrived an hour before the Kilkenny hurling team's victory parade. Now that was a sight to see! If you're off to Kilkenny do yourself a favor and stay at the Pembroke.

Stayed one night at the Pembroke based on Tripadvisor reviews. It lived up to all the good reviews. Great location, large modern room and very helpful front desk staff. It was so nice to have on site parking and the breakfast was very good as well. Overall an excellent value.

We stayed for two nights and upon checking in we were disappointed in our rooms being directly across from the elevators. The staff graciously moved us to larger rooms away from elevators. King size bed and very nicely furnished. Very modern bathroom. Best part was the location! Short walk to Kilkenny castle the the design center and also to great restaurants and pubs! Liked the feel of a little larger town, but without the crowded feel of Dublin. GREAT VALUE

Room Tip: They were very accommodating so I would call directly to get what you prefer
