“Super Hotel”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Stayed here for two nights recently and really enjoyed ot. Owner and indeed all staff are very friendly. The rooms are bright, spacious and very comfortable. Food is excelent also. The general decor - woodwork, paintings etc make it a very pleasant hotel. A great place to base yourseld if touring the Ring etc.

Lovely roadside boutique hotel, great location in the heart of Killorglin. Parking is either outside on the road or in the nearby public car park. The rooms vary in size but all are very modern with top class furnishings. The bathrooms are as good as any in 5 star hotels, some with full baths. The bar area is less modernized but very much in keeping with the area and the food is really good and served with great humour. The dining area has lovely carved tables. Overall the attention to detail makes this hotel stand out as one of the best in its price range in Ireland.
The hotel has wifi but it wasn't working while we were there.

Room Tip: All the rooms are different in size but the furnishings are the same. I liked the rooms overlooking...

We had a most wonderful stay at the Bianconi to see in the new year
I have stayed here a few times before and we were treated with the same famous hospitality as always.
Since my last visit the rooms have been extensively updated to a very high standard
A lovely stay and thanks to Rick and Ray for your warmth and terrific service

Just stayed one night. It's a few years since i last stayed here. impressed with the lovely refurbished rooms. Good breakfast with freshly baked bread and real orange juice. Only negative was warm shower. Would have preferred hotter water, but otherwise very good.

Myself and my wife and her two sisters stayed here on the first night of the Puck Fair 2013, (9th Aug 2013). We had interconnecting rooms. We all had originally planned on staying two nights but due to circumstances beyond our control my wife and I had to cancel the second night. The price for the second night was €40 per person sharing. We were charged a cancellation fee of €45, which was fair enough as it was short notice and they lost out on filling the room. However, two friends of my sister in law's stayed at the hotel on the second night and they stayed in the room that we had vacated, so there was no loss of business to the hotel. However, when we asked for our cancellation fee back we were told no! We were also told that we had got a "special price" for the second night. This was the first we heard of this. When the booking was made there was no mention of a "special price". And the two people that ended up staying in our room hotel on the second night were charged the same amount that we were originally suppose to pay - €80. The rooms we stayed in were excellent and the hotel was quite nice. While the food in the bar was nice, it was kinda pricey. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves the first night and were planning to come back and stay next year for the fair again. However, considering that we were ripped off when it came to paying we will definitely not be staying in the Bianconi again. We will be back to Killorglin, just not to the Bianconi. I hope the €45 was worth the loss of future business!!!
