4.0 / 5Excellent
I ventured off for a solo getaway. Killkenny was a great choice! There is plenty of exploring to do, unique shops, and a good night scene. The castle grounds are wonderful. I could easily spend an entire day there with company or on my own, weather permitting. The castle tour was nice. I didn't get to Dunmore caves as I initially intended, and I look forward to my next visit.

"Quite Comfortable"
A very comfortable 4-star hotel nestled in Kilkenny City, providing easy access to this old and appealing towns sights. Clean, quiet, comfortable, helpful staff, and a wonderful breakfast to start the day (particularly the fried eggs). Next trip to Ireland we'll repeat a booking at The Pembroke.

"Really nice hotel, would happily stay here again."
This hotel is ideal for business trips or romantic getaways as it's very centrally located and really comfortable. It would be nice if it had a gym but as it's on quite a small site that may have come down to not having enough space.

"Right inTown Center"
Well located hotel, comfortable and well decorated. However it is difficult to find with the GPS as the street address provided by Expedia is incomplete and the hotel is not very visible or well marked. It took us a good 20 minutes in rush hour traffic to find it.

The hotel was in the historic medieval downtown so we were disappointed to find that it was just an ordinary hotel. But it was clean and comfortable.

Stay was wonderful. We were a little cold and the heater did not seem to work but we also didn't ask for help so it was our fault! within walking distance of everything you'd want to do in Kilkenny town.

"Not My Favorite Room"
We spent one night at this hotel and it was within walking distance to lots of shops, restaurants and pubs. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I booked my room well in advance, but once arriving found out we had a handicap accessible room. The girl reassured us when we asked to be relocated that this was just like the other rooms except for the bathroom, but I didn't like the openness of the shower and how water got everywhere. I think this should be stated at the time of booking. Also, my side of the bed was not that comfy but my husband's was. Breakfast was very good.

"Good location!"
Pembroke Hotel is a bit off the beaten path but that is good for people not wanting to hear the noise from pubs. Breakfast was fine. Parking is an issue if you arrive after the lots are full. We arrived about 3 PM and got the last spot. Not sure what happens if no spots are available. Overall, a nice clean, efficient hotel near pubs, restaurants, and shopping without being in the busiest part of town.

Centrally located, friendly and efficient staff, free parking. It is within town but very quite. Zuni, the best restaurant in town is just across the street from the hotel. You xan view the Kilkenny castle from your room. Wonderful breakfast, fast free wifi.

Location is top notch. Safe parking is free. The rooms are large, quiet and clean. The bathroom is modern with nice quality products. The beds are very comfortable and stable (ie you do not feel your partner moving!). Best of all, the staff is amazingly helpful with a sincere smile all the while. This is the place to stay - look no further.

"perfect place to stay in Kilkenny"
Lovely place, great full Irish buffet for breakfast (perfect for a busy place, and the food was all fresh and delicious), strangely had two twin beds we pushed together although I'd asked for a double room for two, but I was comfy and slept well. The hotel is in a perfect location for wandering Kilkenny. We were lucky and managed to get the last parking spot so that was helpful, but the lot is small so you may have to wait or park down the road a bit, but the city is very small so it's not far.

Great to relax in after a day on feet walking. Breakfast was very good with a good selection of cooked, continental and cereals. Full Irish always goes down well. Of street parking was a definite benefit. Certainly consider a return stay.

This was a lovely little hotel in a wonderful location only 2 minutes from Kilkenny castle and a 20 minute drive from the Dunmore caves. A delicious cold and hot breakfast was included and it was only a few minutes walk from several delicious restaurants. My only issue was that the pillows were all hard as rocks. Otherwise staff was very helpful and the room clean.

Looking to visit Kilkenny this hotel is in an excellent location. The only thing I didn't like was the small parking lot but that wasn't too much of a problem either since they provided parking for guests for free within a 2 minute walk of hotel. Reception was very helpful and actually remembered our names.I would highly recommend this hotel!

The hotel was clean, quiet and up-to-date. It provided parking and the staff were knowledgable about the different things to do in town. We arrived late one evening and were seeking a meal and the staff here were able to call a local pub and to ask if they would hold on for a few more minutes so that we could eat. Everyone working here was very up beat and cheerful.

Note this is a typical business style hotel - good for comfort and convenience. If you are seeking a more "historical Ireland" experience you might try elsewhere. Also, on site parking is tight but we managed to get a spot.

Pembroke was our first experience in Ireland - we were tired from the airplane and they allowed us to check in early because our room was empty. Close walking distance to everything - we had a view of the Butler House Gardens, the Kilkenny Design Center and the castle. The food was delicious both for dinner and breakfast. All of the hotel staff were wonderful. Next time we are in Ireland we will allow more time for Kilkenny and definitely stay at Pembroke again.
