Fabulous restaurant. Lovely staff. Really nice atmosphere. Good value for money. Food was delightful, melt in mouth delicious. I can't wait to eat here again. I could not recommend highly enough! I have already told all my friends about this place.

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

Just back from a 2 night stay at the Zuni Hotel. We had a ball. As soon as we arrived we had 4 or 5 staff members say hello and welcome us. The room was perfect and the beds are very comfortable. Could do with a kettle and tea and coffee in the rooms though. The food in the restaurant... More

Lovely restaurant that is attached to an hotel, however feels like a separate brassiere. We ate from set menu and when joked with staff we were going to share stater and sweet, we were given (looking at other tables), larger portions. The main meals were well cooked and presented and they had a range of local craft beer and cider... More

What a lovely lovely meal. We booked a table for a special anniversary, The food was gold, and such good value. We were looked after by Shane,t thank you for making our evening so special. The wine list complemented the food perfectly, and the desert was heaven. We just need another 12 months to pass so we can have a... More

The rooms shown online were exquisite. On arrival I was rather dissapointed. Just an ordinary room and not fancy and pretty like online. Also the room was like an oven and you cant open any windows! However a call to reception and we had a fan dropped up. Also the parking area was a joke. Difficult to find and Absolutely... More

Spent two nights here recently. All staff, and especially Paul, were polite and helpful. Even the night porter did his job and moved some very noisy and drunk women out of the restaurant after midnight Eat in the restaurant because the food is exceptional and a good price for the fixed menu.

Although we stayed only one night, this hotel and its staff was delightful. The hotel is very conveniently sited in the city centre very near to Kilkenny castle. We arrived early in the day, too early to check in but this was no problem for the receptionist who immediately offered to store our suitcase whilst we explored the town. On... More

The Zuni was a little hard to find, but once we were parked in their free parking lot, we didn't have to drive anymore. Lots of restaurants and pubs nearby, a block from the Kilkenny Castle, and walking distance to old churches and shopping. Near the river. My single room had a double bed, a desk, closet and shelves, coffee... More
