“A Home away from Home”
Wonderful house so comfortable. Perfect location for visiting all the local areas of interest. Just chilling out in the house and garden. Marian was really so helpful and friendly. We did find some great places in the area for dog Finn and we all loved the beautiful beaches. Stephanie J ( Wales UK ) … June’15
Hi Gary, Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed staying at Beenbane Lodge the last two weeks. We really did experience a great variety that Kerry has to offer from kissing the Blarney stone to the Seafari where we had dolphins swimming off the boat in the Kenmare river. My son Alex enjoyed every waking moment, he even christened one of the cows Ben! The memories will live long for us all, thanks again to you and Mary for all that you did to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. You never know we may one day return to enjoy the craik in the Lobster pub, the great Irish hospitality and the breathtaking scenery and beaches. Best wishes and success with the house, we think you’ve furnished it wonderfully. Cheers from all in the Williams party, Pete.
We are short of words to express our great joy about the two excellent weeks in Beenbane Lodge. We loved the sea, the hills, the lake, the blue and green, the swallows, the cattle and the rabbit, that scampered through the garden from time to time …and the house is simply wonderful, with the sunroom as our highlight. And we accepted the Irish weather especially as we had the chance to experience the Irish summer 2011 which took place on Sunday the 19th of June !. Thank you and good bye ..Michael S
We enjoyed our stay in Waterville. House is very comfortable and large garden is useful of our son. It is raining mostly during the nights, so weather is nice. Today we discovered countryside around Waterville and ValentiaIsland. It’s a pity that the last day is tomorrow. Regards and thanks

From start to finish we received excellent hospitality and care from Gearoid and his team.The accommodation suited our families needs in every respect to provide excellent facilities including in house entertainment etc.. for the odd day of rain, which was very limited during our stay. The property has fabulous rooms all with natural light flooding in and magnificent grounds. Its situation is ideal in order to provide a great hide-away, yet very close to the local town for a nice brisk walk. The local restaurants many detailed within the welcome pack at the house were simply 1st class, I would even go as far as to say try the local pop-in cake/snack ‘Beach Cove’ in Waterville for a fabulous breakfast or afternoon tea. The bedrooms all en-suite were magnificent and spacious with more than adequate storage, the kitchen and and dining area was more than large enough for our needs. Normally in my reviews I would also comment on anything negative experienced, but there are none - all in all, we loved it………

With reference to our recent stay at Beenbane Lodge, we just wanted to let you know that our stay was most enjoyable. The accommodation was first class, the house had everything that we needed. We loved the location of the house, it was very peaceful. We would recommend this property and would certainly like to go again. Marian the lady that looked after the house, was lovely & friendly, and was very helpful. We stayed at this property with our brother & his wife, who enjoyed it as much as we did. Sincerely Ann & frank Fletcher (UK)
Enjoyed so much, the sceneries , the Irish people and the beaches and the Irish weather : having the possibility to stay in such a beautiful house, even enjoyed the days when it rained. Thanks for everything
Well, we did enjoy staying in your house. First impressions were bright, clean and luxuriant and it didn’t fail to impress during the week. Normally when on holiday we are looking forward to getting into our own bed but not this time. The bed was so comfortable, along with the entire house, it was a real wrench to leave on Saturday morning. Golf – my 15 year old who plays off 7 carded a gross 83 at Waterville on Friday, so 4 over. He did the back 9 in 39 finishing the 18th with a birdie so he is well pleased. Fishing – my eldest son caught an 11lb 4oz Bass during a trip with local guide Kevin Brian, he was also well pleased. I had to visit the Medical Centre in the village. Excellent friendly service was provided. I was hoping the doc would say I would have to stay in Waterville for the rest of the season but alas not to be! Considering last year we stayed in a cottage in Castlegregory which was meant to be 4 star, I would give your house 10 stars! We hope to visit again. Will gladly refer your house to any friends and work colleagues who may wish to visit Kerry. All the best and thanks for excellent accommodation
An excellent week in Beenbane Lodge with good to mixed weather. But Hey ! This didn’t restrict our adventure , a great welcome everywhere we went, with great food – a gem of an area with warm friendly people. Many thanks Gearoid for the use of your lovely property, we will be back.
