A slightly belated review for the Pembroke Hotel in Kilkenny but they definitely deserve one! I organised a team reunion for a group of us who travelled to South Africa last year with the Niall Mellon Township Trust and this year we decided that this would happen in Kilkenny! I did a bit of research for good location, value, facilities and decided on the Pembroke (also based on Trip Advisor reviews). I just want to say that we could not have had a better experience, from the time of booking a number of rooms with the reservation people who worked with me patiently as I got commitment from attendees, to the dinner menu to suit my group of people (I was conscious of budget which the hotel were great with), to sorting me out with equipment to show various slide presentations during our festivities on the night. From the moment of check-in to departure the staff were welcoming, smiling, friendly and extraordinarily helpful (right down to checking me in on line for a flight I was taking the morning after my departure from the hotel). The duty manager on the night of our event could not have done more for me if I'd asked, he sorted all the technology out and had it all up and running before we arrived into our reserved area for our reunion, because we wanted to keep it informal and people could mingle we decided to go for their 'Bowl Food' option - the food was delicious and typing this now I only wish I had had more on the night! The location of the hotel was superb, at the top of one of the main streets but a minutes walk to the hub. I would absolutely recommend anyone considering Kilkenny for any reason to choose the Pembroke, and I just want to give a special mention to Phil Lanigan from the hotel who made our reunion there a seamless and thoroughly enjoyable and memorable experience, with a truly Irish welcome!
