Kilkenny is a lovely town best explored on foot. So a hotel like Zuni is perfect: centrally located (3 minutes from Kilkenny Castle), free parking, great service (our spacious and clean room was all ready and reception was expecting us with our card key) and good breakfast. If forced to look for something to improve on, I'd say perhaps a... More

The Zuni Hotel is located slap bang in the centre of Kilkenny with rear parking. Couldn't have been better located to explore the town. The rooms were lovely and bed very comfy. Lots of character & attention to detail (same in the cafe downstairs). We had lunch on arrival in the cafe. I had the Goats Cheese Wrap for 7.70... More

If you are looking for location that is central for this most walkable of cities, Zuni is ideal. Parking was available close to the side door which seems to actually operate as the main entrance. It kind of seems the hotel operation was a sideline for the eaterie and front desk attention was cursory rather than welcoming. The carpets around... More

We stayed here with friends on a night away. Great location breakfast lovely. Only reason why I marked down was the pillows which seemed to be a tough foam type pillow... seems like a small problem but both of us woke with a pain in our necks for the day. I have never had this problems. Room nicely decorated. Bit... More

this was the 7th time we have stayed in zuni, but will be our last. we love kilkenny, and the hotel is in a nice location, but over the past few years the quality has really slipped. the room was really stuffy, with constant tapping throughout the night coming from heating or some system. we have two young kids and...

What a find - great, very big room in a perfect location. Staff were fantastic and the restaurant was an amazing bonus! The staff at breakfast were also fantastic. We would not hesitate to stay here again and to recommend the Zuni hotel and restaurant!

This hotel was really lovely. The room was very tastefully decorated with some nice ideas you would happily take home for your own bedroom. The room was lovely and warm when you opened the door which added to the welcome. Unfortunately we arrived too late to sample the restaurant - gutted - as we had heard good things. Breakfast was...

The Zuni was a good stop for us. Friendly service, free parking, clean rooms. Would have given them 5 stars except for the thin walls and doors. Friday night got a little loud. It has an exceptional breakfast! Excellent value.

Right from the booking we found this hotel a pleasure, great staff, great hotel and great service. We booked last minute on our tour of Ireland and after staying in a number of disappointing hotels along the way the Zuni was a breath of fresh air. Boutique style rooms, great food, free parking, good wifi. First impressions from the outside... More
