Our stay was very enjoyable. The room was spacious and very clean. It was very hot in our room, had to keep the window open. The full Irish breakfast in the morning was nice. Hotel is close to everything. Would stay here again!

"Kilkenny visit"
Business trip to area. Hotel in town centre close to pubs restaurants etc. Bar on this occasion was really quite compared too other hotel bars close by. Another issue could be car parking which would be no problem when weather is fine but if it's raining it's a good 3 min walk back to hotel, also there is barrier entrance would say car park is not secure and obviously away from hotel premises.

"Ideal location in Kilkenny"
Excellent hotel in the centre of Kilkenny, close to the castle. Huge rooms and bathrooms, very clean and modern. Free car parking. All the hotel staff were extemely friendly and helpful. Great choice at breakfast - fresh fruit, cereals, continental, cooked irish breakfast - spoiled for choice. The hotel offers excellent value for money and I have no hesitation in recommending it. Kilkenny is a great place to stay.

The hotel is very nice and the staff was really nice and pleasant. Room was very clean and breakfast was excellent. The only thing to point was that the shower hanger was broken, and that was only 2 tea bags and 2 coffee capsules for 3 people.

"Weekend Trip"
Husband and I were in Kilkenny for a quick weekend trip. We took the train in from Dublin and walked to the hotel (approx 15 mins). We were able to check into our room even though we arrived early. Our room was on the ground floor in kind of a strange area behind reception. We looked out over the parking lot which wasn't great but the room itself was clean, large and nice. We did have a problem with our TV which once noted to the front desk they came and changed it while we were at dinner. The breakfast was delicious. They were very accommodating when we arrived right before the end time (our alarm didn't go off). We were able to sit down and take a moment to enjoy eating. We also wanted to take a trip to the caves but didn't have a car so the front desk arranged a taxi to take us there and back, plus they contacted the cave to make sure they were open. The hotel location is very central right around the corner of the castle and in the city center. It isn't a large place and everything is very walkable.

Stayed here for one night beginning of October. We stayed here with our young baby. We arrived at 3pm check in...just managed to get into car park ok but there was a sign for overflow parking. Receptionists were cheery and welcoming. We had a beautiful room overlooking castle, fluffy robes. Im guessing we were upgraded as we had just paid for the standard double.

"very nice stay"
Just got home from short trip to Kilkenny arts festival where we stayed at Pembroke hotel. I have been to Kilkenny on many occasions usually staying at different hotels. This was a first at the Pembroke. A well located address for very short walk to all events and with free parking one can park on arrival and forget about parking and driving for a couple of days. The staff were genuinely pleased to help and everything was spotless. A couple of observations: breakfast buffet was cleared away very promptly at 10 and when we came down at 945 (we were on holiday) there was limited fare available and was not replaced. The rooms are large and comfortable, however at overnight rate of 185e I expecteda little more luxury. Overall a very pleasant stay.

"Good hotel close to the centre"
The hotel is ideally located close to the centre of the town, the main street with pubs and shops is only a very short walk away. We also used the parking provided by the hotel which is very convenient. The corner room we had was spacious, clean and the bed was great. The breakfast buffet kept us going for most of the day and the staff were very friendly.

"Great Location & Excellent Service"
This was part of our own "add-on" after an 8 day organized tour. Location is a block, or so, from the castle, and is towards the end of the main street running through Kilkenny. We took a bus from Dublin airport and the bus stop is also a block (3 minutes) from the hotel. All of the staff were superb. When we checked-out, they looked after our bags for 6 hours while we toured the town, again, before walking to the bus stop. One small irony - the bar/restaurant does not sell Kilkenny (you know, in Kilkenny). However, the pub down the street did. Otherwise, the restaurant was also excellent. Loved the area, and the hotel. Highly recommended.

"Clean, modern well-appointed hotel"
The Pembroke Hotel is a very modern, clean and well-appointed hotel, right in the centre of Kilkenny. Despite being in the centre, the double-glazed windows kept the room quiet, while the air conditioning was very welcome on an unusually warm day/evening in mid-June. Staff were very friendly and helpful, including when we requested a late-night change of linen on our beds to replace the very warm duvets with sheets.

Booked in advance, had good reviews on Tripadvisor. Nice big room (301) free parking, usual hotel breakfast. Restaurant and housekeeping staff very pleasant, reception a bit formal, did not feel we got to know them at all, but there were a lot of people staying at the hotel when we were there. Wonderful location, we were able to walk everywhere, Kilkenny has loads of good restaurants.

Excellent stay, good location within walking distance of the main attractions. Great staff, restaurant/bar/grill provides good fare with friendly and efficient staff. We preferred the ambiance of eating in the bar rather than the restaurant. There was a small problem with our room on arrival but professionally and quickly resolved by reception. Would stay here and recommend this to our friends if in the area

"An elegant establishment in the centre of town"
I booked myself into the Pembroke from the hotels.com app on my phone while I was already on the way down by train. I arrived little over an hour later to find a very cordial welcome and an excellent room all ready for me. I have stayed in this hotel before with my husband and found it very good, but now that I am a widow and a solo traveller, I am regrading all my favourites by the standard of how good it is for a woman alone. I can say that this hotel is excellent on that basis: I felt well taken care of, pampered, but not at all patronised. And I had a very dignified and excellent dinner in the restaurant. I can highly recommend this hotel, and I will be back.

"At the heart of things"
Two days in Kilkenny is not enough! The hotel is the perfect place to stay, within easy walking distance of the major places in the city, with parking for your car, and amazingly, so quiet and peaceful at night! The staff are very pleasant, the breakfast is freshly cooked and really good but if you are a coffee lover, maybe ask for double strength - American friends liked it weaker, we Europeans often want a bigger kick. Start your tour with Rothe House, a unique place in Ireland and Britain, its history goes so far back, both to the 12th century, and then to the 17th, and onwards. The restaurants around are very good too. The castle has great guided tours. I think I would have needed three days for the city and more for the surrounding area. Great place.
