We stayed at The Pembroke Hotel back in Sept 2013 during our honeymoon in Ireland/Italy. This was our second last town before going back to Dublin to fly into Italy. The first impression when we first arrived was that it was a very modern, clean hotel. Very simple designs, and close to all the attractions in town. Keep in mind, Kilkenny isn't exactly huge though.
The parking was a little difficult with our rental car, but the staff ensured we would have a spot as we were guests.
I really want to take a moment to tell you something that really set this hotel above any other experience we had in Ireland. On the evening after checking in, my husband and I decided to go to a local restaurant for some food. It was a great meal, until at 2AM my husband woke up with severe food poisoning and couldn't move a few steps without my assistance. We were due to check out at normal time the next morning and had to drive back to Dublin to catch a flight the day after. I told the front staff what happened and they informed that they would allow us to stay past check out for another 2 hours, then helped me local crackers/bananas and gingerale in town. Then when I came back from the local market, they informed that we would be able to stay until 4:00 PM without charge. The hotel didn't have to do this and it did look like they were also operating at a fair amount of capacity. They went above and beyond for us. I would highly recommend this hotel not because of it's great location but because the staff actually CARE about their guests - they do what matters.
