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.

Customer Reviews


Mary Ann Werley


Margaret and Gene were very hospitable hosts. The rooms are very clean and quite large. Having a restaurant/pub next door was super convenient. We used their living/reception room for an evening get together and they provided wine glasses. The breakfast was delicious.

Beniska house is the perfect location for touring the Ring of Kerry and Dingle peninsula. Our hosts, Margaret and Gene were helpful in discussing where to go and when. Margaret even called a tour bus and we were picked up right at the house Our breakfasts were wonderful and the house has every modern convenience. We were very close to Killarney and there is a restaurant right across the street. We had a wonderful stay at this BB and would highly recommend it

This BB was great, the rooms were big and so was the bathroom also very clean,the owners were very nice and helpful when we checked in the owner gave us a map and explained how to get to were we wanted to go, the bedrooms are on the second floor so if you have a problem with steps this maybe a problem but I would definitely stay there again
