“30th Anniversary!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

The Pembroke Hotel was very nice. They provided a nice decorative surprise in our room to celebrate our anniversary. Very good location...close to the Castle and the Shopping and Dining areas. The only thing my wife did not like was that she felt the sheets were rough.
Kilkenny was a great city to visit. Met some really nice people from Belfast.

Stayed July 2014, travelled as a couple

Our touring group of 45 stayed here for 2 nights. Our room was very nice with kind of a funky shower (hard to figure out). We had a light bulb on a night stand literally shatter when turned on with glass going everywhere. When reported to the front desk, we had someone there quickly to clean it up, replace the bulb, and reset the breaker in the electrical panel. Impressive! The breakfast was not quite extensive as others we have seen on our tour, but it was very good nonetheless. We had a group dinner in the hotel restaurant (Statham's). I'll review it separately. Lots of party pubs in the area but we heard very little in our room. Overall, a great stay in a wonderful town.

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)
