I visited this restaurant last weekend as part of a group of 8...It was very busy. The food was so tasty. The service was very efficient. I will definitely return. All 3 courses were fabulous, especially the dessert

A very pleasant stop on a brief visit to Kilkenny. The hotel enjoys a great location in the heart of the old city and the private car park is very handy. The rooms are small but well appointed and ours was extremely quiet as we overlooked the car park at the rear. The Zuni is probably better known as a... More

Ok, I have to mention the pillows first. We were staying in Ireland roaming the country in a rental car for 10 days. We didn't look online for hotels, we just checked whatever we walked by. This hotel looked really nice and they had a room available.. So we took it. We were very pleased the room And bathroom. But... More

The warm welcome we received when we arrived on a rainy December day was the beginning of a terrific stay. We had two rooms booked and both were clean, well appointed and quiet. Parking was included. The tiny bar/restaurant served good food. This hotel is excellent for walking about the High Street, visiting Kilkenny Castle and more.

Perfectly nice hotel, wish we could have stayed longer! Great location in Kilkenny, Breakfast was lovely and tasty--presentation!--whether you got the full Irish or granola and fruit. We didn't have dinner here, but would have if we'd stayed another day. Definitely better than the Hibernian a few doors down, and cheaper as well. marvelous staff and free parking. It wasn't...

Awful. First room we had had dreadful bathroom with stained old tiles. We asked to change for a better room. One electric plug not working, shower failed to drain until we took drain plug out and carpet stained. Would have left if it had not been late and raining. We have had 8 days in Eire and all hotels and... More

We've stayed at those hotel a number of time in the past, noise not withstanding. Nicely decorated with comfortable beds and, by and large, staff members were friendly and helpful. Dinner on Saturday night was superb - a real treat. Unfortunately the breakfast left the whole experience down. On Saturday morning poached eggs were served on a soggy muffin. Eggs... More
