Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were travelling 15 days through Irland and visited several hotels. Pembroke was one of the best hotels we had. Personal was very friendly, great rooms and perfect breakfast. We would book the hotel again at any time.

Hotel's Favourite
We visited the Pembroke Hotel for a family get together and had dinner in Statham's restaurant. From arrival at reception all the staff were extremely personable, friendly and accommodating. The rooms were lovely, very clean and comfortable. A few of us went for drinks in the bar before our meal and the staff there again were very friendly. The meal in Statham's was excellent, with all of our party absolutely delighted with their food. The menu has something for everyone and every dish was to a very high standard. I had the whole lemon sole and it was one of the best fish dishes I've had in a long time, absolutely delicious. Breakfast the following morning was also a real treat. A standard far above the usual hotel breakfast with great choice of options and everything I saw or tasted was amazing. Again throughout breakfast the staff were extremely friendly and great to chat with. Overall we were all so happy with our visit and will certainly be going back to both the Pembroke and Statham's.

The Pembroke is the place to be when you want to be at the centre of things. Park in the private car park and take to your feet. The welcome was warm and the service attentive throughout. The Castle View Room on Floor 3 was on the small side and a bit bland. But it did have a Castle view! Overall, a good day and a night with an early check-in while we had a lovely brunch in Statham's.

Hi BreandanOB396 Thank you for a great review and highlighting our central location. Our Castle view rooms are fab to wake up in and overlook Kilkenny Castle. Statham's brunch is popular with hotel guests and Kilkenny locals, and is a great way to keep you full up for the day while out exploring the city :) Kind regards Edel

We booked directly at the desk to another bad hotel in the city that cancelled or reservation. The staff has been immediatly very kind and tried to find a solution. They purposed a nice room very quiet and comfortable (we are in the center of the town). Do not hesitate!

The Pembroke is conveniently located near the Kilkenny Castle, restaurants, etc. The rooms are a nice size. Only issue was a noisy AC. Staff were friendly and helpful. Didn’t get to try the restaurant or spa, but the menu looked nice at the farm-to-table restaurant.

Hi Nancy K We are so blessed with our central location near all of the city's attractions! Apologies if the aircon was noisy, it's rare to find it in Ireland and it's been working very hard this month to keep bedrooms cool during the heatwave. You will have to come back to try dinner in Statham's and a massage in Mint, you won't regret it! Kind regards Edel

Great location, staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms very clean. Great hands free system in lifts! Asking g people to put in a minimum of 200 characters is a bit silly. Maybe have a max not a minimum.

We stayed in the Pembroke hotel in a twin room. It cost €270 for a one night mid week stay for two people. This hotel portrays itself as a four star hotel but I could not agree. The room itself was basic and in my opinion way over priced for what it was. When we arrived back to the property after dinner at 11.55pm we were told that the bar was closed and that there was no residents bar, which we thought was very poor form. The staff member had no interest whatsoever in speaking to us. Breakfast the next day was poor and tasteless. When I look at the rate for the same night this week it is €170 for the same room. I do not like hotels that price gorge. There are better hotels in Kilkenny charging a lot less for mid week stays. I could not in anyway recommend this hotel to anyone.
