The hotel is modern and clean. Wifi works well. Breakfast was tasty. My only gripe is the lack of communication about parking. It is difficult to find and they don't tell you there is a gate barring entrance that can only be opened from inside the hotel. You have to actually call or go inside the hotel to get them... More

My husband and I stayed three nights over the new year. The room, although a little on small side for a three night stay, was clean and comfortable. Minor drawback was that the air conditioning was outside our window and a little noisy but this was switched off overnight so didn't impact on our sleeping. Everything in the bathroom was... More

We found the location of Zuni unbeatable for touring around Kilkenny on foot. First locating the hotel entrance was a bit difficult, though, as from the street we had to walk through the restaurant with our suitcases. The hotel room was clean, mattress was comfortable and there was very little street noise. Washcloths were the only thing we found lacking... More

I have eaten in Zuni restaurant on a number of occasions and was always very impressed, in fact it is one of my favourite restaurants to visit in all of Ireland. We decided this time around to also stay in the hotel. I cannot recommend the hotel enough for the following reasons: 1. Great value. 2. Fantastic city centre location.... More

I had previously read the reviews and I was unsure what hotel lay ahead. I musy say it was near perfection, from the moment we walked in the staff member who checked us in could not be nicer and this theme followed for the length of the stay. Room was gorgeous, it's the little things that make a stay a... More

Brilliant central location, lovely rooms, staff that can't do enough for you, a city centre car park, gorgeous food and a great atmosphere. Have stayed in many hotels in Kilkenny and this is the only place I will ever stay when visiting Kilkenny again! Thanks to Paul and Shane for taking great care of our group!

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.
