4 star accommodation in Kilkenny city centre at Pembroke Kilkenny

Here at Pembroke Kilkenny, we are lucky to have such a fantastic city centre location. Just a stone's throw from Kilkenny Castle, Kilkenny Design Centre and dozens of bars and restaurants, our location on Patrick Street makes us the perfect base for a group, family or romantic holiday in Ireland.

We are easily accessible by car and we're only 5 minutes from the train station. National buses also stop directly opposite the hotel entrance - what can we say? We're very well connected.

We have 2 complimentary private car parks for guests, one on-site and the other within 2 minutes walk. Entry to our on-site car park is through the black gate under the archway to the right of the hotel entrance. Pull up to the gate and press the buzzer, we will open the gate from Reception. If the on-site car park is full, guests may set down and bring in luggage before moving to the second car park. Please let us know in advance if you have any special needs.
