I booked for one night and stayed for two. Very comfortable room with big bed and good shower. Lovely decor with good attention to detail. Very friendly staff - thanks Hazel and Andrew! Good food in the bar and restaurant. Breakfast was substantial - my husband loved the porridge. So glad we stopped in Killorglin and stayed in this hotel. Good adherence to Covid rules - safe environment. Would definitely recommend

We checked in for 3 nights over Aug bank holiday weekend. First thing on checking in was the owner/manager (??) commenting "oh you've paid already that's great" but then "just double checking" before he handed us our key cards to go upstairs. The room was beautiful, place was spotless - we overlooked a flat roof with a hum of ductwork but can live with that ! The food is amazing & service is excellent. The major issue is the noise - there's constant fans going, had to ring down to reception at 1am to ask guests using the guest lounge to keep noise down & I'm now writing this at 03.22am & there's singing, shouting & people walking up & down the floor above us 😭 Obviously another guest lounge (which is never a good idea when positioned outside someone else's bedroom !!) It's a pity cos this place is lovely apart from the lack of any apparent management of noisy guests !!

Response from Ray Sheehy, Owner at Bianconi
Responded 4 Aug 2020
Dear Denise, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I really appreciate your compliments on our food, service and cleanliness. i would like to however address the issues you have made. The manager that checked you in was merely confirming that you had paid in advance as we do with all our guests. it is part of our check in procedure. i do wish to apologize for the noise you experienced on that night. We had a group of guests who were particularly disruptive that evening. i can assure that this is not the norm for our premises. Both the owner and senior member of the bar team spoke to the noisy party several times and asked them to quieten down so i can assure you we didnt take the matter likely. in fact we spoke to them several times that evening. i do hope you return to us on another occasion as we pride oursleves on both a high standard of rooms and food but also guest hospitality. thank you

My husband and I had dinner in the Bianconi a few weeks ago. I have to say the food was amazing. The basket of fresh bread accompanied with a tomato dip was delicious. My starter was a brie dish. It was cooked perfectly and the pear and walnut chutney was a tasty contrast with it. My husband had the smokey bacon and cheese burger. This was absolutely amazing. I dont really eat or like burgers (I'm picky with processed meat)but I loved the flavours in this and the beef in it was top quality. I had the pan fried fresh fish of the day. It was a huge portion a pure white delicious fish, accompanied with chips, tarter sause and a pea puree. All this washed down with tasty rioja. Great place for a tasty and filling dinner.
