“View of longest each in Ireland”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

Beenoskee is a lovely and welcoming, thanks to Mary and her husband Mike. The rooms are not huge, but very clean and have an ocean view. The wood/peat stove in the living room was toasty warm and waiting for us when we arrived in the chilly late afternoon, and Mary was very helpful and fun. We decided not to drive back to Kenmare for dinner, but instead had dinner at the pub a few miles down the road called Thomasin's where the movie Ryan's Daughter was filmed. We were the only 4 people in the pub, but they prepared a delicious dinner for us and we felt most welcome. There is a webcam in the living room that shows the beach for the benefit of all the surfers that come to stay in the summer. Mary's breakfast was one of the best we've had, complete with homemade blueberry muffins to complement the full Irish breakfast. A great place to stay!

April 2012 our family, 9 of us, went to Ireland to celebrate my father's 80th Birthday! His one request was to go back to the Beenoskee where he stayed 7 years ago. It was as wonderful as he remembered. Mary and Michael make you feel right at home. You are greeted warmly with a tea and homemade bread. Breakfast was delicious.The view is spectacular! The rooms were clean and bed so comfortable. You can go across the road for a wonderful walk on the beach. We highly recommend it.

We stayed in Beenoskee for one night over Easter. Home made Guinness cake along with hot coffee were waiting for us upon arrival. You can expect friendly atmosphere, cosy rooms and no matter if you order their delicious Irish breakfast or any other of 17 menu options, it would keep you going for hours. Our little daughter got an Easter egg from Mary. We were delighted with the way Mary and Michael hosted us. Also great ocean view and easy access to the beach, Connor Pass just around a corner. We highly recommend it.

Facing the ocean, the location is just perfect. That's the perfect place to live the Irish experience. Mary and her husband are very welcoming people. We were welcomed with tea and home-made whiski cake. Delicious.
The room was simple but clean. The view from the living room and breakfast room is incredible.
The breakfast is so good! Go for the Irish Breakfast, the experience will be complete !

We stayed here for one night in November, what a beautiful location! Great hospitality from Mary and Michael, lovely furnishings, and delicious breakfast! The room was, however, very cold for us as we are from a dry climate and not used to the humid cold. There is no heat provided between approx.10pm and 7am. Being winter and an ocean facing room with a huge window, it was a very chilly night and we hardly slept. Other than that, this would be a perfect summertime accommodation.

Mary is absolutely fantastic! Booked on one day notice with no trouble. Met with hot tea and wonderful homemade cake (sorry Mary, can't remember the name but delicious). Amazing "proper" Irish breakfast (see pic).

The drive to Dingle over the Connor Pass is incredible. Mary will be happy to call you a taxi and recommend a good pub. Wonderful B&B!

Mary and Michael go our of their way to make their guests feel at ease. The decor is a little old-fashioned and fussy, but very comfortable. The breakfasts were extremely generous and tasty. It's a great location away from the hustle and bustle of the Dingle - the drive over Connor Pass was VERY exciting in the mist and rain. Be aware that there is still a fair amount of driving to do to see the Dingle sights, some may prefer to be on the other side of the pass instead. But for us, the view over the Atlantic more than made up for the distances travelled each day.
