Holy Communions & Confirmations
The 4 * Granville Hotel is the perfect setting for your special occasion.
The Bianconi restaurant is a lovely period room, set up classically with pristine cream linen, makes the perfect setting for diners to enjoy some excellent cooking by Executive Head Chef Stephen Hooper and his team.
His attractively presented Holy Communion and Confirmation menus offer plenty of choice and very good value. Guests can sit back and relax in the wonderful surroundings where the décor is charming and the ambience is old fashioned elegance, offering stunning views over the Quays in Waterford City.
Although peppered with some modern fusion dishes, the overall style is proudly traditional. Ingredients are locally sourced and include some specialities – so, for example, you’ll find the unique ‘Waterford Blaa’ bread roll offered alongside the home baked brown and white soda bread. Local was always a key focus, but in recent years, it has taken a lead role in designing seasonal dishes.
This extends to a herb garden on the roof of the hotel – ensuring fragrant greenery is always available. Consequently, the restaurant is the showcase for all good in Irish eating. As members of Good Food Ireland we aspire to creating an authentic Irish food experience.
Quality meats, poultry and seafood are all abundant in the area and this is reflected in simple cooking that showcases the ingredients.
The Bianconi dining room offers you the option of booking a private space for your Holy Communion or Confirmation in either the Library or Bells.
These spaces are flexible and can accommodate up to 20 people in the Library and up to 32 people in Bells.
