The Pembroke Townhouse consists of three Georgian-style townhouses and is situated on one of the oldest streets in the city. The Pembroke Townhouse offers a quiet stay, despite being only a short walk away from the busy cafes and shops of Grafton Street and St. Stephen's Green. Although only breakfast is served on-site, the hotel is within walking distance of a number of the finest restaurants in Dublin. Raid the on-site pantry for complimentary cookies and snacks. Free secure on-site parking is available.
Rooms
The Pembroke Townhouse offers 48 contemporary, calming and cozy guest rooms, and all rooms feature a collection of privately commissioned Irish artwork. Enjoy views over Ballsbridge and across to the city from many of the guest room windows. There are 41 superior standard rooms and seven mini-suites, several of which feature mezzanine balconies offering additional seating space and stunning city views. Wi-Fi Internet connection is available in guest rooms (fees apply) as are wake-up calls and a complimentary newspaper. Rooms for disabled visitors are also available on request at the Pembroke Townhouse.

Quiet and laidback

The Pembroke is located in a quiet mostly residential area. Easy 5-10 minute walk to restaurants and the train to get you into the central Dublin. Room was basic but comfortable, stayed in a room on the backside of the building, could easily have window open at night and no noise. If you are looking to stay in the busy tourist or Temple Bar area, this wouldn't be the location for you. But if you want a quiet, relaxing and laidback place to stay, I highly recommend the Pembroke. Gotta love the tea, coffee and biscuits that were always available, and the chef leaves some great cakes in the evening on the front desk for your tasting pleasure.

Cozy and homely

Location: 30-40 minutes walk to downtown, 10 euro taxi ride. Safe area of the city though. Rooms: A bit noisy windows (ok if you draw the curtain). Otherwise full match with the description. Parking: Free secure parking in the courtyard. Breakfast: Ok for extra charge. Full Irish and porridge available. Dinner: No restaurant on-site, very limited options in the neighbourhood. Staff: Nothing special. No complaints and nothing beyond ordinary. Special: My wife and myself especially enjoyed the cozy atmosphere at the lobby with fresh cakes and tea provided. In fact, that is exactly what was a tie-breaker between 4* and 5* experience.

Great place!

I spent 4 nights here and loved it. The room was very clean, and the staff was wonderful. I loved being able to have complimentary tea, homemade cookies and cakes at any time of day and night. The hotel is situated in an area close to many attractions and easy access to many others.

Sweet Spot

The Pembroke Townhouse was true to its description of being in a nice neighborhood within walking distance of shops and restaurants. In fact, I could walk all the way into downtown Dublin with good walking shoes. The staff were polite and informative. The hotel was near bus lines (in case you didn't bring good walking shoes) and a variety of restaurants. The neighborhood was quite around the hotel. The townhouse was in one of the classic "Georgian" buildings and it was great fun to stay in a point of history. The beds were a little too soft for my liking but the room was sparking clean and well maintained. The common guest area was nicely decorated and had a fire place. Coffee and tea were available all the time as were delicious short bread cookies (known as "biscuits"). I loved my stay. I felt very much at home.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Nothing to do with the hotel...the street sings in Dublin are high on the corners of buildings or low or not there at all so the map the hotel provides is VERY useful if you are walking.

One night getaway for concert

We stayed here for a concert at the O2. Location was fine. Room was very small but clean. Shower was great. Lighting not v good for makeup. Didn't have breakfast but tea and cookies were good in room opposite reception. Small hotel.
