We had been staying in less expensive B&B's and decided to get something a little nicer while we were in Kilkenny. The hotel was very conveniently located in the heart of town, easy walk to all of the attractions. It was... More

I wanted to like this hotel! The staff were wonderfully kind. The location was convenient. The accommodations were acceptable. But.....our 2nd floor room was directly above the bar which played live thumping music until after 1am in the morning.

The Pembroke is perfectly located - close to the medieval part of town and the castle - plus quiet, well appointed, comfortable, good value and with a hearty buffet breakfast. There's parking onsite or within walking distance, the staff were lovely and very helpful and the bar welcoming, quiet (when we visited) and comfy. I wouldn't hesitate in returning.
