"Able to park the car!!"
Everyone was so hospitable and we especially enjoyed the owner and the breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A very good experience"
The hotel did not look much at arrival as we came along the street with the car, we drove in to the car park behind the hotel (had to leave the car for a minute at the gate, go in and ask them to open for us). The staff was very professional, friendly and service minded, we found the room to be... well... perfect, (except the bed that was a bit too […] hard for our liking, Staff was informed and I guess it have been replaced by now) all was in a very hi standard, warm and dry, (not as we experience on other hotels/B&B's around Ireland, cold and damp). We found that the traffic around the hotel was not disturbing at all, and that gave us a good night sleep as well. Location wise it could not be better, we found it to be at walking distance to everything (and we are not much for walking), and needed to say, Kilkenny as a town have a very medieval feeling in a good way (reminds a lot of our favorite town Visby in Sweden/Gotland, feel wise). Over all, one of the best experience we had in Ireland, both hotel and town wise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fabulous location and a comfortable stay"
The location couldn't have been better, just a few minutes walk to EVERYTHING. Downstairs had a fabulous restaurant that we ate at our first night, the food, the service, the wine, fantastic. Breakfast in the morning was very good, and the coffee was delicious. We would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice small modern hotel in a very quaint town. The breakfast was included and was VERY good. Pleasant staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay again"
Beautiful hotel, nice room, excellent breakfast, and located handy with most everything walkable distant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic Food - Great Location"
The food at the Zuni Hotel is really excellent. As the other reviewer mentioned, it is 5 star food without the 5 star price tag. The cafe/restaurant was buzzing with customers (especially locals) which is always a good sign. The kitchen was able to accommodate our food allergies without any fuss. We had the fish dish for lunch which was excellent value […] at €12. The courgette soup was gluten free and we were able to enjoy it with gluten free bread that the hotel provided. The cooked breakfast the next day was just as good. The only negatives were - the windows in the bedroom were more like a full length door -than a window, so we were not able to leave the window open when we were sleeping - this was inconvenient and we found the room quite warm and stuffy. Also, the bath itself was stained and looked a little grotty - the bathrooms could do with a makeover. Apart from that, we had a wonderful stay and we will definitely be back.

"Top class,And Great Staff"
Dont be fooled the Zuni is a 5 star hotel without the price and with better staff. My experience here was fantastic to say the least. Me and my friend stay here at a very busy time of year new years eve and the day before. On arrival we noticed that the hotel is right bang in the middle of Kilkenny city the location really doesn't get any better then […] this. The staff, were the superior kind of staff that is really rare theses days. They really look after people and go the extra mile especially at breakfast and the reception staff are fantastic and helpful also. The rooms clean, spacious,quite and cosy not cold by any means the price is right. Would stay here again 110 percent YES i dont think id stay anywhere else in Kilkenny after staying in the Zuni.

"Close to City"
Restaurant obviously is excellent, the staff tried very hard to be helpful and they all were very nice. We came for cultural events (not listed above: shame!) and enjoyed the city and the festival very much. We very much missed tea/coffee facilites in hotel room, which is standard in Ireland (early morning hot water wen need for diet reasons!) Room […] was too small. WC problem at start was better then, but not satisfactory until the end. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Modern, chic and great location"
Great location with an award winning restaurant made Zuni a great place to stay. It meant breakfasts werealso fabulous rather than the usual mass prepared offerings.Rooms were clean, modern and great facilities. On site parking. All around terrific value and will recommend for anyone coming to Kilkenny.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Immaculate hotel, difficult to fault, ideally located in the centre of Kilkenny. Apart from the excellent breakfast we only ate in restaurant once, they do Tapas every evening, which was pretty good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hi stayed at zuni.. only big complaint with this hotel was that there was very noisy generator from the kitchens. i was assured i would not be listening to this early the next morning- apparently it is not meant to be turned on till 11. but at 8.30 it was pit on. I informed te receptionist- god no apology from the manager before i left. the purpose […] of a hotel stay is a rest but not in this case. otherwise this is quite a nice place...

"Zuni - Excellent food, warm & friendly service"
I had been here a few years ago for my sister's wedding reception & had been really impressed with the food & the service. The rooms were also chic & comfortable. I decided to book it again as we were staying overnight to participate in the Kilkenny Triathlon. We weren't disappointed. The food was outstanding again with meticulous attention paid to […] detail & the service was every bit as wonderful. The room was very quiet & comfortable and breakfast was delicious with really good coffee, fresh warm baked scones & a selection of sliced ripe fruit with yoghurt. The manager couldn't have been more helpful & was really accommodating even after the race when we had checked out. My only small gripes are that the restaurant was very quiet while we ate even though there were other diners, we could hear the kitchen sounds over the almost non-existent music. Also the outside dining area has become a bit scruffy. But we'll definitely be back!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right in town."
07/15/14 UnderwaterDiva Pittsburgh
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 maker, TV, and good wifi. A light sleeper, I didn't hear much in the way of noise from the outside, but I did hear everyone in the rooms upstairs when they took showers. The included breakfast included orange juice, coffee or tea, and choices of three different types of meals. A good choice for exploring Kilkenny.
"excellent location,comfortable room,great staff."

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 sundries. The front desk staff were pleasant, friendly and helpful - always a smile and hello as we came and went. The only reason I can not rate them all 5 pts is b/c of the middle-of-the-night, late night noise from the restaurant below our room. We were on the floor directly above the restaurant and the late nite patrons and/or staff were not quiet after the bar/restaurant closes ( talking VERY loudly, smoking). The room window and the restaurant open into a courtyard and the noise is amplified and echos.... even ear plugs could not help. I would think that the staff would have been told ( many times) to ( kindly) move very boisterous patrons out of the area and that their own loud conversations need to be taken to the street and not the courtyard or back parking lot. Yes,it was a busy Friday/Saturday in Kilkenny and noise is to be expected...but not at that level. I do highly recommend this hotel, but try to get a room that does not have a window that opens into the courtyard.
"The food is very good in value & quality"
07/14/14 Shimlion Cork
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 very professional and I have and will recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

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 Zuni restaurant during other stays in Kilkenny and meals have been great.

"Excellent hotel in a fantastic location"
06/27/14 YoavShany Tel Aviv, Israel
The hotel is located just two minutes away from Kilkenny Castle and the center of town. The rooms were spacious, shower was large, comfortable with hot water and good pressure. Breakfast (served at the hotel's cafe, no buffet) is standard - several choices of eggs or full irish breakfast, toast with butter/jam, coffee/tea and orange juice. The hotel has an elevator, so don't worry about heavy luggage. The hotel entrance and parking are a bit hard to find (the entrance to the parking lot is from a small alley behind the hotel), but we just called the hotel and they explained how to get there.
"Excellent weekend in Zuni"
06/25/14 Excitedbride007 Dublin
My husband and i spent a fab weekend in Zuni back in may. We were lucky enough to have an evening meal included in our stay and I have to say the food is amazing. The staff were very polite and helpful the only grip I would have is the bedrooms need a bit of TLC. Breakfast is a must.
06/17/14 Natalie S S Kinsale, Ireland
This hotel was a very pleasant surprise, beautifully decorated in white and mirrors, clean rooms comfortable beds and extremely kind and helpful staff. The original art on the walls was a nice touch. The breakfast was good and a pleasant place to eat with the double doors opened to the street with the sunshine pouring into the cafe.
Just back from a fantastic weekend for my sister's hen party and we had 10 out of the 13 rooms booked with a total of 22 of us in the group..... They gave myself and my sister the suite to stay in which was one of the nicest rooms I've been in with a huge amount of space... All the other rooms are very modern and nicely decorated.... The hotel is spotless and we were treated like royalty during our stay.... I would like to thank the manger and all the staff for their hospitality... Location wise it is right in the centre of everything... Perfect for friends or couples looking to enjoy all of what Kilkenny has to offer... No taxis needed.... We will be back!!!!
"Great Location and Personality"
06/04/14 vab1122 Los Angeles, California
As much as a hotel room can just be a hotel room, it is nice to stay in a place that puts a little style and personality into the room. Getting to the room was a little funky with the different floor levels but that's the nature of converted buildings. At least there was an elevator to the room. The breakfast was very nice with great coffee. The staff was attentive without being intrusive. We didn't do dinner there, but it looked very busy with many happy diners. And the deciding factor for my selecting this hotel was the location. It is great for exploring the Kilkenny center.
