Our Bianconi Heritage


Recently acquired by new owners the Boyle Daly family. The ethos of offering high quality accommodation, food and service will continue. Hazel along with her Husband Gerard are thrilled to embark on this new adventure. They have many exciting new plans and developments in the coming year.

A native of Killorglin town, Hazel has honed and nurtured her skills working in many 4 and 5 star hotels in her twenty years in the business. No task is too big or too small. She promises to go above and beyond to make each guest experience unique and memorable.

Previous to the current owners the Sheehy family owned and operated the Inn since 1955. Brothers Rick and Ray recently retiring and held always in high regard by their long term guests and local alike.

The Bianconi has been trading for over 150 years and having originally been based on a Bianconi stage coach route, has taken it’s name from Killorglin’s rich and proud past as a central town for leisure, business and touring travellers alike. The Bianconi story starts in the early 19th Century, when Charles Bianconi, one of the earliest innovators in public transport in Europe, and the founder of Ireland’s first public transport system started his stage coach routes in 1815. Bianconi realised that ordinary people sought to travel and see Ireland, as well as travel for business in comfort, something we believe in today in the Bianconi, Killorglin.
