If you are looking for a place right in the heart of things...this is perfect. It isn't a big place - but the people are wonderful - we appreciated our host, Stephen, and our waiter for the evening. But really, everyone was great! The room wasn't fancy...and not huge...but it was comfortable and clean. Parking is complicated...or at least when you're jet-lagged it feels complicated. Still, we arrived and they sat us down for coffee and a little breakfast...we needed it, too! We felt right at home! Why four stars...we think the rooms need a little updating...but if that doesn't bother you - here you go!

Modern. Sleek. Clean. Friendly, attentive staff. The restaurant downstairs was divine. The room was an absolute delight. Quiet. Comforting. Well priced. Warm. Great location. Best sleep we had in our whole trip around Ireland!

Room Tip: You can;t go wrong. Just stay there. And eat there!

Stumbled upon this little gem by accident in the heart of Kilkenny. What a find.!location, staff ,food and attention to detail are all pluses here. Doesn't look much from outside , but once inside it is a little haven of tranquility. Rooms are small, tastefully furnished, beds are comfy with lovely crisp linen. Had a great nights sleep due to quiet location and efficient black-out blinds. Our evening meal was served in a lovely restaurant which had a fab buzz. Food was excellent and served by a staff who took pride in their work. All in all a lovely memorable experience.
Breakfast next day was delightful too. Full irish was available but the eggs benedict and omelette were to die for.
Happened to return again unexpectedly and were welcomed back like old buddies. A tray,of coffee arrived in our room which was much appreciated after a long journey. It's the little touches that mean a lot.
We loved our experience, thanks to the staff who obviously love their job. Well done to all. We will be back.

While we were in Kilkenny, we stayed at Hotel Zuni. While it was a little complicated distinguishing where their parking lot was, once we got into the hotel, we were greeted by a friendly gentleman who quickly provided us with our room key and gave us tips on where to grab dinner since we were so late arriving into Kilkenny. We had requested a high floor but since their elevator was broken they moved us to the first floor. I was worried about noise but had no trouble since we were in the back of the hotel. We took the opporunity to partake of their amazing Tapas menu in the bar area and what a treat. They food was fabulous, well priced and could hardly be called tapas by their size. This was a nice small hotel and I would recommend it to my friends. My only complaint would have been the firmness of the bed. It was a very hard bed.

The rooms were spacious and clean. New standard all over and great quality breakfasts that were fair priced. We broke a lamp in a pillowfight and nobody yelled at us. Great!

Will stay again if I ever return to Kilkenny (which isn't very likely, Kilkenny sucks)

Can't fault the food it was excellent . As for the accommodation it was dreadful . Badly in need of cleaning , painting , decorating and a good plumber. The radiator gurgled all night long disturbing our sleep. My sister needed physiotherapy on her neck after sleeping on the memory foam pillow. Smell of smoke in the bedroom when we arrived which was such a disappointment to my other asthmatic sister. But having said all that the staff were more than helpful and nice. Certainly eat there but don't stay

Absolutely loved our stay here.
Staff were friendly and helpful, food in restaurant was gorgeous, as was the breakfast in the morning!Also got two complimentary glasses of prosecco on arrival ( it was valentines day but it was a lovely bonus when we arrived!)
Room was clean and comfortable - loved the size of the tv and the amount of channels available!
Very central location - 2 minute walk from Kilkenny castle!
Free wifi and free parking were an added bonus!
