The Pembroke Hotel is a 4-star boutique hotel located in the heart of Kilkenny City. Opened in 2004 by owner and managing director John Ryan, the hotel is now recognised as one of the best places to stay in the Marble city. In addition to welcoming guests from around the world, the Pembroke is also home to Statham’s bar and restaurant, providing top quality food and drink to its many guests.

The Pembroke approached South East Energy Agency looking to reduce both their carbon footprint and energy costs. The team at South East Energy Agency coordinated the entire SEAI Community Energy Grant application from the initial energy audit, procurement to warranty checks and all required paperwork.

The Pembroke Hotel wanted to reduce their electricity use to help reduce monthly energy bills and also wanted to implement low carbon technology in the hotel to move towards a more environmentally conscious  strategy


As part of the project, our team of experts coordinated the installation of an upgraded air handling unit and induction hobs to replace inefficient gas hobs in the kitchen. Thanks to the SEAI Community Energy Grant 2019 programme, the Pembroke Hotel has saved money on imported energy and reduced their operations carbon footprint.
