"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 perfect, (except the bed that was a bit too […] hard for our liking, Staff was informed and I guess it have been replaced by now) all was in a very hi standard, warm and dry, (not as we experience on other hotels/B&B's around Ireland, cold and damp).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

"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

"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.
"Central in Kilkenny"
06/01/14 hewhotravels Barnsley, United Kingdom
Kilkenny can be so difficult to find a central room at short notice but we managed it at the Zuni. What's more, they upgraded us to the suite. Parking can be tight during the day as offices share the car park but at night spaces are plentiful. The bedroom of the suite is impressive, decorated in a modern style with large bed, table, settee and large wall mounted flat screen TV. So chic. There were, however a couple of drawbacks: This is a town centre hotel there is some street noise especially after the pubs close. The bathroom fails to match up to the impressive presentation of the bedroom. It's attention to detail, which is so surprising considering the impressive bedroom, there are tiles missing grout, the toilet holder loose on the wall and bath poorly sealed and there is a dent where the shower head had fallen and hit it. Breakfast is taken in the cafe below and both the food and coffee are excellent. You can see how well thought of it is locally from the number taking breakfast in the morning. We didn't eat an evening meal. The drawbacks won't prevent us returning though, we still considered it very good as the staff were friendly and welcoming. Overall the Zuni has much to recommend it in preference to the larger alternatives.
"Zoom to Zuni"
05/28/14 sunbird2013 Phoenix, Arizona
On paper, this hotel checked a lot of my 'wanted' list: centrally located to what I wanted to see, free parking on site, breakfast included so I didn't have to waste time searching around for something in the morning, and a reasonable price. Zuni delivered, and more. When we arrived, we couldn't find the car park so we parked on the side of a neighboring street and walked in to ask directions. The staff was very helpful with the gentleman walking me out to the side street then the main street and pointing out exactly where to go. That's probably the biggest challenge for this hotel: Finding the car park and the entrance. The hotel desk is behind the café (facing the main street) and in front of the fancier restaurant at the back of the hotel and easiest to find from the car park. A little challenging. But the staff were helpful, the hotel has a lift for bags, and the room was spacious and clean. The décor was black and white and crystal 'modern' but the double bed was large and comfy. Our room faced the courtyard in the side/back and was quiet at night. The breakfast is served in the café out front with a choice of items and was delicious. Many local people come in as well, most for a takeaway coffee and maybe a scone or muffin (which wasn't one of our choices, but the rest was so good who cared?) It's easy to walk to the local sights to enjoy this lovely little town. Take time to enjoy the Castle grounds - they are a large park with strolling paths and flowers. Loved Kilkenny and would happily return to Zuni.
"A gem in the heart of Ireland's medieval walled city"
05/19/14 michele m Los Angeles, California
Great central location, their own parking lot, and great food in their restaurant and cafe. We had a twin room, very chic and spacious. The prix fixe dinner was very good - NYC quality cooking. Affable staff. A fantastic base for exploring this part of Ireland.
I booked a group of 13 into Zuni Hotel on a Saturday night! The staff on booking and on arrival were excellent! The rooms were extremely clean & comfortable. We enjoyed a suburb meal Saturday night and I can honestly say the breakfast was one of the nicest hotel breakfasts I've ever had! Zuni is located right in the heart of Kilkenny city and I would highly recommend it to anybody bringing a group to this lovely city!
