"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 perfect, (except the bed that was a bit too […] hard for our liking, Staff was informed and I guess it have been replaced by now) all was in a very hi standard, warm and dry, (not as we experience on other hotels/B&B's around Ireland, cold and damp).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
Excellent service and very stylish hotel in central location. Parking a bonus. First class restaurant. My room was well appointed and quite glamorous, although being at the rear had the noise from the fan from the kitchen, which did go off at 10.30. The soundproofing was not very efficient as I could hear intimate details from next door, but over quite […] quickly! Staff very friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

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.

The staff in this hotel are so accommodating and friendly, the cleanliness throughout is very evident. The hotel location is brilliant being so close to all the shopping streets, we would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and would certainly have no hesitation in staying there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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...

Trevligt hotell mitt i centrum. Rena bekväma rum med enkel inredning och trevlig personal. Parkering på hotellets baksida.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

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 on drinks menu. The staff were very friendly and I would recommend a visit if in Kilkenny

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 return anniversary date. I suspect we will book a room next time.

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 crammed. Barely got a space. Very badly laid out car park shared with other businesses near by. Accommodating location if you intend to go on a night out as your near all bars etc. Staff were okay.

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.
"Excellent hotel with friendly staff"
07/26/14 Helen R Dublin, Ireland
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 our return, check-in was very quick and simple and the suitcase had already been delivered to the room. The room itself is stylish, with white walls and mirrored dresser and side tables, plenty of storage space and an elegant and comfortable king-size bed. The only drawback was that the extractor fan of the restaurant below was sited just outside the window (probably the only room which had this situation) but as this was turned off when the restaurant closed late in the evening this didn't affect our sleep. The bathroom is well-appointed with a selection of toiletries. The summer has been very hot and in common with many Irish hotels Zuni doesn't have air-conditioning (because we don't normally need it!) but as we passed the reception we casually asked if they had an electric fan. When we returned from dinner we found one of the managers installing the fan (actually it was hilarious - he opened the door just as we put the keycard in, and we all jumped in shock!) The service throughout our stay was personal and attentive. Breakfast the next morning was in the cafe/bar at the front of the hotel, where they have a residents menu. We both asked for vegetarian versions of the breakfast offered (Eggs Benedict/French toast with bacon) and substitute ingredients were immediately suggested by the helpful waitress. I definitely recommend this hotel for visitors to Kilkenny.

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.
