"Our Irish Top Ten" by John & Sally McKenna
The Irish Independent - "Weekender" Magazine Supplement - Saturday, 7th August, 2010


"John and Sally McKenna, authors of the new ‘Bridgestone 100 Best Guides to Ireland’ have scoured the country in search of their favourite places to eat and stay......

............Pembroke House, Dublin:
Dublin should have a score of great private houses offering accommodation and wonderful service, but the truth is that it doesn't.  That lack makes Fiona Teehan's Pembroke House even more valuable as a city address, and here you will fine superb service in a beautiful Georgian house that has the feel of the city. It's the feeling that they are really looking after you that makes Pembroke House special, starting with the tea and homemade biscuits when you arrive......"

"10 Best Dublin Townhouses in Dublin" - Inside Ireland Travel section

12th September, 2009 

Pembroke Townhouse features as one of the best townhouses in Dublin!

"PEMBROKE TOWNHOUSE:
Forty-eight rooms might be stretching it for a townhouse, but this Pembroke Road property conforms in spirit. “Escape the crumbling concrete of D4 and enjoy a real dose of Dublin 4 hospitality,” they say. “Raid the larder in the middle of the night.”
The individually designed rooms (including mezzanine suites and corporate singles) are particularly suited to business guests, we say. There’s also a study that can be used for breakfast meetings, and flip-charts, laptop and TV are available.
Details: The Pembroke Townhouse (01-660 0277; pembroketownhouse. ie), 90 Pembroke Road. Online rates from €45pps. Three nights are currently available for the price of two, at €200 per room."

(English Translation)

Scoring:
Scoring ranges from 1 to 6 based on the following criteria:
Location; Price; Quality of bedrooms (facilities to include hot water, air conditioning, television channels selection, in-room safe); Standards and facilities within en-suite bathrooms; Level of Noise; Breakfast Standard; Friendliness and helpfulness of Staff, etc.

PEMBROKE TOWNHOUSE

Score: 6

The winner of the competition is located in one of Dublin’s most beautiful Georgian streets, Pembroke Road. The Pembroke Townhouse is an architectural jewel dated from the 1900’s and successfully combines the traditional and the modern.

The idyllic Herbert Park is only a mere five minute walk away and Dublin’s centre only fifteen minutes.
Bedrooms are simple and equipped with cable television, safe, wireless broadband (costs €15 euro a day when we visited). On request, the guesthouse can provide an iron and board within minutes. Babysitter can also be provided.

Original modern Irish art adorns the walls. There is no mini-bar, but one can avail of drinks and snacks by day and night. Breakfast is the only meal available at the Pembroke, but this is of a very high standard and includes Lambs Liver on a bed of Mushrooms and Bacon (may be subject to seasonal variations / no longer available).

Reception area and the lobby is light and friendly, staff are helpful and attentive and the breakfast room is light and stylish. In the sitting room, guests may read newspapers or enjoy a cup of tea. On cold days, an open fire crackles warmly.

The bedroom I stayed in was not very big, but big enough. The bed covered most of the area of the room. There was a small writing desk. The bathroom was light and clean and included a bath tub. The bedroom was located at the back of the building, so was very quiet by night. The hotel has a lift. Included in the price is complimentary parking in car park facility with camera surveillance.

Plus’s:
- Situated in one of the prettiest districts in Dublin, Ballsbridge.
- The interior is of Georgian character combined with modern elegance and Irish hospitality.

Minus’s:
- What should they be!?
- Someone guests may perhaps prefer larger rooms and in-room tea making facilities.

Caption under Bedroom images:
“The bedrooms at the Pembroke Townhouse are simple, yet elegantly furnished.”

"Seks Dublin-hoteller - Dublin byr på loslitt og dyr, men oftest svært sjarmerende overnatting. "That's great, love!" "
Få steder er tonen så ujålete og personlig som når kvinnelige hotellansatte snakker til deg i Dublin. Du føler deg straks hjemme.
....Terningkast: 4 

PEMBROKE TOWNHOUSE
48 rom
Pris: Fra 88 euro til 120 euro. Frokost inkludert.
Testens suverene vinner ligger i en av Dublins vakreste georgianske gater. Pembroke Townhouse er en arkitektonisk juvel fra 1800-tallet som viser hvor vellykket resultatet kan bli når man kombinerer det tradisjonelle og moderne. Dette klassiske huset er blitt gjort om til et stilfullt moderne boutique hotell, uten at sjel og sjarm har gått tapt.
Den britiske og amerikanske ambassadøren bor like i nærheten, id ylliske Herbert Park er fem minutters spasertur unna og du går til attraksjonene i sentrum på 15 minutter. Eieren har vektlagt en klassisk stil, uten å la seg friste til å dynge ned rommene med store møbler, som så mange andre hoteller i Dublin satser på. Rommene er enkelt utrustet, men med alle moderne fasiliteter som kabel-tv, safe og trådløst nettverk, som koster 15 euro for 24 timers bruk. Skal du stryke klærne, ringer du bare resepsjonen og i løpet av få minutter har du fått strykejernet levert på døren. Hotellet skaffer også barnevakt.
På veggene henger moderne irsk kunst. Ingen minibar på rommet, men resepsjonen kan tilby drikkevarer og snacks hele døgnet. Frokost er det eneste måltidet som serveres, men tilbyr kulinariske godbiter som du vanligvis ikke finner på hoteller, blant annet lammelever servert på en soppseng og dekket med bacon.
Resepsjonen er lys og vennlig, de ansatte hjelpsomme og oppmerksomme, frokostsalen lys og stilfull. Ved siden av resepsjonen ligger en stor dagligstue. Der kan gjestene lese aviser eller kose seg med en kopp te. På kalde dager knitrer peisen varmt.
Rommet jeg fikk var ikke gedigent, men stort nok. Sengen dekket de fleste kvadratmeterne. Langs ene veggen sto et lite skrivebord. Badet var lyst og rent. Badekar kan være en varm luksus etter lang dags vandring i iskalde gater. Rommet vendte bort fra Pembroke Road, og ingen lyder forstyrret nattesøvnen.
Hotellet har heis. Inkludert i prisen er parkering i overvåket område.
Pluss:
Beliggenheten i et av Dublins vakreste strøk, Ballsbridge. Interiøret, historisk karakter, moderne eleganse, kombinert med irsk gjestfrihet.
Minus:
Hva skulle det være? Noen vil kanskje ønske at rommene var større, og at de var utstyrt med vannkoker.......

"A ding-dong old time in Dublin - The best places to eat, drink and party in the Fair City - and some of the places you can lie your head afterwards"  By Gillian Hayland

There is a real sense of life and genuine zest to Dublin. We may be regarded as Europe's leading cosmopolitan city but the most striking and endearing qualities of the Irish still remain. After visiting Ireland you'll know what I'm talking about. The French call it the "joie de vivre", for us it's the "craic", either way the Irish know how to enjoy themselves and not take life too seriously.
What is immediately apparent is there's no shortage of fantastic pubs, clubs, cafés and restaurants oozing out of every street. The good news is you'll be spoilt for choice, the tricky part is finding the right one. I've included a list of places that should tickle your taste buds, tipple your glass and keep you on your toes well into the wee hours of the morning......
....The Pembroke Townhouse just off Baggot street is tucked away in a beautiful Georgian house a brisk walk from the city centre. The tree-lined road is surrounded by superb restaurants and bars as you head towards town. Try Ely Place for a wicked wine bar and the Pearl Brassiere for Dublin's finest seafood in secluded settings. The rates are competitive and cheaper than in the centre. A rare find and worth a look, and if rugby's your game Lansdowne Road Stadium is minutes away. Doubles from £70...
