At Pembroke Kilkenny, they 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, their location on Patrick Street makes us the perfect base for a group, family or romantic holiday in Ireland. Offering 4 star accommodation in Kilkenny city centre, with fantastic business facilities in the Business Centre and delicious food and drink in Statham's Bar and Restaurant, they've come a long way since the days of the Statham-Ford Special. But given the fantastic history of this building it seemed only right to dedicate part of their offering to the family who made it great. They have lovingly restored the Statham-Ford Special and it is on display at the hotel. Visit the bar to find out more about the history of the car and pick up our driving routes brochure so you can explore the same Irish roads as the Statham-Ford Special in it's day.
