Beautifully designed spacious room. Spotlessly clean. Loved the nEspresso machine and pods, selection of toiletries and ample amount of towels. Breakfast was beautifully cooked and presented. I'm a very regular visitor to KK and this is my first stay at Zuni although I've often eaten...at the restaurant. I will stay nowhere else but here in the future.More

Arrived for an evening meal with family. Four people. A couple in their 80's & us, a couple in our late 40's. Height of delta variant. All four of us had our phones out & ready to display our covid certs at the front door......We weren't asked for same. We were offered a seat & a barman brought our drinks & took our coats... Still not asked to provide covid certs. We were then ushered to our table in the dining room, our order taken, cutlery laden, water, menus ets.. Still no one asking to view our covid certs. This restaurant has a very large dining area, yet we were seated right beside a large group of people (approx 25). Directly in front of us was another group (approx 10) The rest of the dining room was empty, tables all neatly laid out. I didn't make a fuss because I didn't want to spoil the night for our elderly family members who were celebrating their 57th wedding anniversary. The next day, I messaged the manager & told him of our experience. He had the audacity to tell me that no one is allowed into the restaurant without proof of vaccination. What a chancer! The food is good if somewhat pretentious. The staff, in all credit to them, were friendly, courteous & attentive.More

Modern but quaint hotel right in the middle of kilkenny centre. Such lovely staff, particularly Louise at the reception desk, she was so friendly and helpful. That barman can pour a good pint!!! The breakfast was unreal! We really enjoyed our stay at zuni Hotel

Wonderful Sunday lunch here with friends. Food and service was very good and we enjoyed a leisurely afternoon with no rush on us which was perfect for a catch up. Staff were attentive and friendly. My only suggestion is re covid compliance as our certificates...were not checked and I personally find this reassuring rather than a hindrance.More

I don’t think there is a specific gluten-free menu, but all of the options on the menus (regular, early bird, vegetarian etc.) have all of the allergens listed. Additionally, some dishes can be adapted for coeliacs.
