We were very happy with this hotel, especially its convenient location in the center of Kilkenny. There is free parking in the rear. Rooms are modern with a clean 'spare' look which we liked. Bathroom had plenty of ledge space for toiletries. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. We usually avoid eating at the hotel, preferring to check out local... More

Third visit to Kilkenny and definitely would not be complete without a meal in this lovely restaurant. Nothing changes warm greeting and a willingness to ensure we got our chosen table. The Early Bird menu is fab loved the Warm chicken salad and the salmon cooked to perfection. Great wine recommendation. The steak was perfect and ice cream delicious. Everyone... More

We spent 2 nights at the Zuni Hotel. The hotel has a great location in the center of town, helpful staff, parking and a very good breakfast. The restaurant was very good - we had kale soup, local trout pate, crab risotto and hake with pea risotto with a lovely Sangiovese wine. We recommend both the hotel and the restaurant.

I always try and visit Zuni every time I visit Ireland. It never fails to impress me. When we arrived, we were greeted by a very friendly and welcoming receptionist and a waiter took us to our table. The table was immaculate and clean. My starter was the chilli chicken salad followed by the steak and chips. Wow wow wow.... More

We recently stayed at the Zuni for one night. The room was very quiet, clean and comfortable (although it lacked face towels ie wash cloths, but many accommodations had the same issue). The location was perfect -all the most important sites were an easy walk from the hotel and they had parking available for the car at no extra charge.... More

I began having my doubts about this hotel as soon as we tried to park and as we walked into the lobby. The entrance was a little difficult to find and the lobby is pretty low class; just a desk on a bare floor. When we got to our room I noticed there was no dead bolt. The other rooms... More
