We had requested a quite room. We stayed in 319 & had 2 great nights sleep, could not have been better. The room was spotlessly clean...

We had probably the most spacious hotel room I have ever experienced in Europe, even larger than many rooms in the USA. The room was clean and bright and had a view of the street. The room was so clean and in such good condition that I think it must have been recently renovated. Free parking in the hotel courtyard...

We had a quick stay in Kilkenny. The Pembroke is clean and located in the heart of it all. The staff are very friendly and made sure we felt welcome. Kilkenny is a beautiful city and the Pembroke makes the stay even better.

The bathroom was also plenty roomy, stylish, and clean. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. I know they have specific "castle view" rooms, but if I looked out of the window at a...

Such a comfortable hotel! Spotlessly clean rooms, comfortable beds, nicely arranged bathrooms. Very very helpful staff, great location, quiet for a good night's sleep, and delicious breakfasts! What more do you need? Magnificent flower arrangements in the lobby to enjoy on your way in, and out, every day.
