Meet your host…

Margaret Moriarty

Gene and I have lived in Killarney all our lives, our families were also B&B hosts from the mid fifties. We rebuilt Beniska House in 2000 and have really enjoyed helping our guests from various countries enjoy all the scenery of Kerry over the past twelve years. While we are aware that our town is becoming more and more commercial, we cannot emphasise enough that there are acres and acres of unspoilt landscape which you can explore in peace and quiet.


County Kerry natives Gene and Margaret Moriarty built the luxurious Beniska House in 2000 and happily share their wealth of local knowledge with guests. A 4-star rated home with spacious bedrooms and a comfortable guest lounge, it’s superbly located for visits to the Dingle and Beara Peninsulas and the acclaimed Gap of Dunloe. Only 4km from the lively town of Killarney, guests can enjoy renowned pubs and restaurants and spend a day outdoors with Killarney Golf and Fishing Club nearby.

Of the 3 B&B we stayed on our holiday to Ireland, this was the best! Margaret & Gene were so warm the minute we arrived. The living room was v inviting & the room clean, well decorated & spacious. The Irish breakfast was delicious & plentiful & we were v appreciative of them off serving us local seasonal fruits. On the 2nd morning we were also served fresh scones & biscuits - she even wrap a couple of them for us to take away & shared her recipe with another guest who was also having breakfast. Margaret & Gene were very informative, helpful & friendly. We highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting this area & we certainly will return if we visit Ireland again.

It. was sooooo wonderful. We stayed 5 nights and the breakfast was the best we have ever had on vacation.

Laura Adler


This was a lovely B & B. The hosts were so welcoming. Margaret kept us company during breakfast and gave us so many inside details about Ireland. We had a long day and we were able to have a cup of tea and some biscuits when we arrived. The house was large and clean. If I went back to Ireland, this would definitely be another stop. Gene's sightseeing advice was excellent as well.

Margaret and Gene were the nicest hosts and their B & B was extremely nice. It is a great location outside of Killarney and on the road to the Ring of Kerry. We need to get up early to head north and Margaret packed a take away breakfast for us. Gene gave us great advise on the sights and directions to get there. It was a very enjoyable stay.

This is a wonderful B&B that I would be more than happy to return to and could recommend to anyone. Very clean with lots of space in the rooms; homey and comfortable. Margaret and Gene are extraordinarily kind hosts with many tips for visitors. Breakfast every morning was some of the best we had on our holiday. Margaret kept coming out of the kitchen with more and more good food until we were bursting at the seams.
