The Hotel looks awesome from the street so does the restaurant.
It gives an impression of a warm, well managed place focused on guests not crowds.
Free carpark at the back of the property.
Small, cosy bar, bright and clean restaurant with lovely, friendly staff.
Breakfast made to order, hot and tasty. Evening dinner in fully booked restaurant, laughs and jokes with staff, good food, really enjoyable time.
However our room was only average and bathroom is screaming for a new look.
Especially shower but to be honest the rest isn't in great shape either.
Bathroom lowers my overall note and I'm not that posh at all.
It badly needs a refurb and then I'll gladly come back.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side are quieter due to kitchen appliances at the back.

We enjoyed Zuni for its location no the restaurant. The staff was accommodating and the parking convenient. THe breakfast was very good. The rooms were not up to standard. The beds hard and lumpy, pillows quite hard, the furnishings trendy in some past period and the common areas worn down. We stayed in the more upscale suite room. The food smells from the bar downstairs were really unpleasant. Stay somewhere else and go to Zuni for dinner where the food is outstanding.

I cannot think of a single negative about this hotel. Our group of 8 had four double rooms with breakfast. The price was a bit higher than in some locations, but Kilkenny tends to be a bit more expensive, it seemed to us.
The rooms are spacious and bright (we had a corner room with windows on two sides); the showers are good and the wifi worked well. We had a great bed. The location is superb, just around the corner from Kilkenny Castle, in the heart of the city centre.
The breakfasts were cooked to order and excellent.
We had dinner one night in the hotel and it was exceptional (reviewed elsewhere).
I booked the rooms nearly a year in advance and the staff was very responsive to my requests and that also proved to be the case after we arrived.
Just a wonderful experience for us in this great historic city.
It's a bit unusual in that the street entrance is really into the bar, but there is a separate entrance not well marked to the right, through the archway. They have great parking provided free, just behind the hotel, with access to the hotel and restaurant just off the parking area. We were there for two nights on the weekend and the city was full of people drinking and partying, yet there was no noise in our room.

Excellent boutique TownHouse. We had a wonderful stay in Kilkenny. The Townhouse was a fabulous location to all the restaurants and Castle. We had a comfortable sleep and an excellent Breakfast in the Morning.

Operated like a family hotel, clean rooms, nice restaurant/breakfast, good customer service at check-in. Walking distance to most attractions in the town. Parking shared with neighboring businesses so it was a little crowded for spots, but we did not have trouble finding one available when we arrived late afternoon.

Last minute decision to travel to Kilkenny. Booked this hotel. The experience was very positive from check-in through to check-out. The room although slightly small was functional and fit for purpose. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of activities and events. Breakfast on each morning freshly cooked.We ate from the bar menu on each evening. the food was well prepared, presented and good value for money. we would definitely return if even only for the food. The property is well located in the centre of the city with all major attractions being within walking distance (a bonus for me being the driver). Would recommend this hotel, for value, friendliness and food.
