Bianconi
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Killorglin
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We have been coming to Ireland for 20 years and have stayed in many different hotels, guest houses, and B&Bs. The Bianconi is one of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed. They recently did a complete renovation of the rooms and they are outstanding. They thought of every amenity with décor, lighting, and comfort. The bed was huge and comfortable and the bathroom was state of the art. I understand they are renovating their public areas soon and when that is completed, this will be a showcase.

It also is in a great location, between the river and the main town of Killorglin. You can walk to everything and there is so much to do.

The only problem we had during our stay was that the wireless was intermittent. We couldn’t get it at all in our room and only sporadically in the public areas. I do hope they fix that, because it is very important.

We highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again, and would even make it a destination.

This is a lovely pub/guest house/hotel in the heart of Killgorlin, very near the river. The rooms have recently been refurbished to a very high standard with modern decor,comfortable beds & big baths. But: there never seemed to be anyone on Reception, breakfast was disorganised & running late, there were very unusually no tea making facilities in the rooms & it seemed to be a work in progress rather than the finished article. Bar food was excellent with good friendly service & we were disappointed overall with what might have been.

We stayed here for a two-night break as we were attending a nearby wedding on Saturday. Killorglin is a beautiful little town and it's people are very well versed in the cead mile failte. The Bianconi was fabulous. Very clean and modern rooms, big tv. most comfortable bed and a bathroom to rival any 5 star hotel. The gentleman who checked us in & out was so friendly with time to chat and inquire about our well being. No request was an effort. Top Class breakfast and lots of it with a friendly service from a tall well groomed gentleman. I was late for breakfast but it was not an obstacle and no rush was put on me. The Bianconi and Killorglin will certainly be on my list to visit again.

only stayed here 1 night for business, but was really impressed. from the outside looks like a typical Irish pub, but step into the hotel and up to the bedrooms its a different world. everything is very well designed and so modern. only down side was WiFi not very good.
Ate dinner in the restaurant and the food was really fantastic. breakfast was good although it feels a little odd, as the only self service item is orange juice- everything is brought to you. cereal /toast / cooked/ coffee and tea. it was all good, just meant if you wanted a quick continental breakfast you couldn't! then it is Ireland! relax and enjoy

Room Tip: all rooms on the front, so do suffer a little from road noise.

Overall good locale - better than typical quality bed / bath. Also good locale for touring Dingle and Ring, good food in pub as well as attractive art work in public spaces. Minuses are lack of room tea kettle, room phone, wall art in room, no internet in room.

The hotel is located in the center so no need to take the car! The rooms are very clean and brandly new. The breakfast room seemed like it hasnt been remodeled in a while wich its quite a shame because its didnt match the room... But the breakfat was really good!
