This hotel features a nice enclosed car park. check in was very quick and friendly. sleep quality was excellent. We didn't eat here for dinner, had a look at the menu (tried to order a drink at the bar but there was no bar staff) but it wasn't to our taste so ate in another bar close by. We had...

I first contacted the Pembroke Hotel in March to organise my friend's hen. From the very start, They were so helpful and reasonable to deal with. There was lots of behind the scenes work before the hen (approx 40 emails between hotel and me!) so having a helpful person to deal with at the hotel was fantastic! Lots of nice...

This charming hotel is a true gem. The staff are extremely courteous and professional. All the comforts of home are provided in modern rooms while overlooking kilkenny castle. Walk out the door and be surrounded by lovely shops, pubs, and the lively local scene!

I stayed at the Pembroke Hotel for two nights. It has a great location and makes walking to any of Kilkenny's attractions very easy. The staff are friendly and helpful in all regards. The breakfast is also very good, though I was disappointed one morning to find that the buffet had either been cleared out or they weren't serving it...

We spent three nights in a castle view room in early October 2014. We couldn't have been happier with the accommodations or the hospitality of the staff. The hotel is located a short walk from everything you'd like to do or see in Kilkenny, and it made a great base for exploring the surrounding area (the Rock of Cashel, Kells,...

This is the perfect hotel for a weekend in the City. It is close to everything, very clean and has parking on site. Nice big room and ours had a lovely view of the castle. I wouldn't have any trouble recommending the hot to anyone and will stay again on my next visit.

Nice staff, but parking lot was full so we had to park 4 blocks away. Lovely view of the castle from our room; however bed and especially the pillows (I believe they may have been made in the 1700's at the castle?) were very uncomfortable. The breakfast was mediocre and there was a long line waiting for a table. Nice...
