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

We stayed for 2 nites at The Zuni Hotel in July. The location is just a 5 minute walk from everything! Room was comfortable and clean, bathroom had lots of shelf space for items. The shower is a small stall and does not have even a soap holder, but the door slides easily enough to use the toilet top for... More

We didn't stay in the hotel but had a meal in the restaurant on a busy Friday evening. They provide a set menu until 7.30pm which has a great choice and is excellent value. The quality of the food was superb and portions were surprisingly generous. The staff were very efficient but lacked charm and warmth. However the service is... More

We stayed three nights bed and breakfast in the suite. The bathroom was a little tired otherwise our stay would have been just ok, the relaxed atmosphere at breakfast along with great food made our stay memorable in all the right reasons. The staff at breakfast were super full marks, they made the stay great. We have eaten in the... More
