Room was pristine clean. Airy and bright. Breakfast was great with a wider variety than some of our other B&Bs. However! Gene and Margaret are the treasures at Beniska. This couple proved invaluable with not only hints and suggestions for local sightseeing, but also just proved to be delightful company. We would book with Beniska again with no hesitations.

Very nice B&B. Spacious room, very clean and quiet, despite the fact that the B&B is located next to a busy road. Delicious breakfast, prepared 'à la minute' and according to your wishes. Very friendly, enthusiastic hosts, who give very good advice concerning daytrips, 'must-have-seen', 'do's' and 'don't's',... We would highly recommend staying at this B&B if you want to... More

We had the best time at Margaret's. She was very welcoming and nice to us. The rooms were great, the breakfast amazing... It was great to be able to have some tea when we wanted to in the lovely living room. A really nice stay, I definitely recommend this B&B.

We so enjoyed our visit to Ireland and Margaret and Gene at Beniska House made our visit even more interesting and fun -- perfect example of the friendly Irish people. Margaret was our favorite hostess the entire trip. She and Gene gave us directions (some written!) and information about the entire area - suggesting routes they correctly thought would be... More

This B&B is very conveniently located if you plan to travel the Ring of Kerry. Gene and Margaret are very friendly and welcoming hosts, the rooms are spacious and clean and the breakfast excellent. Good wifi. There's plenty of parking room in the frontyard if you're traveling by car (which you probably do, as this is a few kilometers from... More

Nice and generous people, and large rooms of good standard. Very good breakfast, and Margaret took really good care of us. Would definitely come back to this b&b! About 4km from the city center, but if you have a car this is no problem.

Gene and Margaret are wonderful hosts. They are very helpful in suggesting sights to visit and "must sees" in Killarney. Gene even printed out a suggestion sheet which we followed and it was wonderful. The room was very clean and comfortable. We only wish it was a bit closer for walking into Killarney downtown area for dinner and evening visits.

Beniska house is a well kept home about 4 miles from Killarney. The hosts, Margaret and Gene, welcomed us and provided us with insights to help us enjoy Killarney and Ireland. Breakfast included several options hot and cold followed up with a delightful hot scone, jam and cream. Two thumbs up.

I have just spent 2 nights here and cannot recommend it enough. It is well located for all the major points of interest, just a quick drive to the Gap of Dunloe, Ross Castle, the National Park, the golf course and the town centre. The hosts were incredibly helpful and welcoming, Margaret would ask where we were going each day... More
