The Pembroke Townhouse is lovely;it's clean, comfortable, and relatively quiet. Normally I would have no problem recommending the Pembroke to anyone, of any age, but before booking, you may want to finalize your details, ask exactly what you are paying for, so as to avoid any disappointments I was shocked to discover their 15.00 Euro charge for access to the internet,(charging for the internet seems a cheap practice to me, even coffee shops offer it for free). We'd just been traveling for 2 weeks in Ireland having never been charged once for wireless Internet in any of the hotels we'd stayed in. We made our reservation several weeks in advance, asking for a double bed, a single bed and a child's cot. Sadly, the single bed, was a much used, uncomfortable, fold out sofa bed. When asked what could be done to help make the sofa bed's mattress more comfortable, they brought us another blanket, which didn't address the problem at all. Our Pembroke experience should have been better given the ambiance and luxury of the front lounge area, and dinning area. I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt, but even now after returning home from our travels I find thinking of those internet charges and the uncomfortable sofa bed still irritate me.

Due to the staff not reading the Venere booking they only booked 1 room instead of 2 as I have paid for consequently my wife had to stay in a very samall and unsatuisfactory room. Management and staff did not seem to care and no reduction in cost was or has been offered

We loved our stay. Although not in the centre, the hotel is situated in a lovely neighbourhood, which we might not have visited if it weren't for its location. It's well served of buses centrebound just around the corner, including airport bus. Staff very welcoming. Rooms clean and well aerated. Big thanks to Lonely Planet reliability!

The sink in the bathroom had separate taps for cold and hot water, that may be inconvenient. Also the introduction of a shower flexible pipe (instead of the present rigid tube) would really add to comfort.

I would highly recommend staying at this hotel. The staff, especially Francesco, were competent, knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and extremely helpful. While the room furnishings were not luxurious, our room was clean and everything was in working order. We weren't hungry enough to have the full breakfast, so we opted to search for our own. We were able to find several choices for our morning coffee and pastry within two or three blocks. The only caution that I have for this hotel is that it is a long walk (2 to 3 km)to the main Dublin shopping and eating destinations. Personally, we didn't mind the helped to burn off the generous lunch and dinner portions that we consumed.

Enjoyed our stay, lovely old building, nice to see the inside of a georgian building. Beautiful reception area, you could make a cup of tea or cofee and have a biscuit there in comfy chairs. I would hsve liked to have kettle in room as well as didnt feel like coming down to reception in my pjs at 4am for drink! The room were spacious, nice bathroom and very clean. We were facing street and quite a lot of people were talking loudly outside on and off thru night. So if you want quiet ask for a back room. Was a good walk to heart of city not too far and you get to see a lot on the way. Would defnitely reccomend.
