Kilkenny Accommodation // The Pembroke Hotel
Kilkenny was the last stop of my almost three week Northern Ireland and Ireland road trip before heading back to Dublin for one night. I honestly didn’t know much about Kilkenny but was instantly charmed by its medieval heritage and completely walkable city. If you’re looking for Kilkenny accommodation, Pembroke Hotel is perfect! The four-star boutique hotel is located in the centre of the city and overlooks the medieval city and Kilkenny castle.

The modern and sleek look of the hotel was beautiful. I especially loved the green tones – it felt very calming and relaxing – just what I needed! They even have ice-cold lemonade in the lobby to enjoy!
The Pembroke Hotel is located in the heart of Kilkenny and you’re able to walk almost everywhere you desire. Kilkenny is located in the southeastern part of Ireland is directly in between Cork and Dublin. Some nearby attractions include:
- Rock of Cashel
- Wicklow Mountains National Park
Upon arrival, we were invited to take part in a rooftop tour! It was a great little intro to Kilkenny full of information we surely wouldn’t have gained on our quick stay. This was such a wonderful welcome to Kilkenny and Pembroke Hotel. While the rooftop isn’t accessible on your own, you’re able to ask for your own rooftop tour should you be staying at The Pembroke.
We were able to stay in a Castle View Room at the Pembroke Hotel which overlooks the Kilkenny Castle and I couldn’t have imagined a better way to start winding down an Irish road trip.
The hotel was perfect for our short stay but would have been more than suitable for a longer stay as well. The room was equipped with fast wi-fi, a flatscreen TV, water, and coffee.
The bathroom was sleek, modern, spacious, and stocked full of plenty of supplies!
There is parking available on-site. When you find the hotel, there is a motion-activated gate to the right of the front door – just pull through the gate and you’ll find parking spots. We had no problem finding a front row spot but should all the spots be full, there is a satellite parking lot about a block away!
The Pembroke Hotel was a great choice for our stay in Kilkenny! The location was fantastic – being able to explore Kilkenny by foot only is always a plus! The rooms are beautiful and spacious with lovely views, the staff is beyond friendly and I would definitely stay here again!
