I'm not much of a B&B person so this was a pleasant experience for me. Margaret and Gene are a lovely couple who really made us feel welcome. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was a simple affair for us as we are vegetarians and so did not take the hot meal option. We had cereal and toast. The... More

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.

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.
