Cycled 30 miles from Eyries to Kenmare. A very pleasant cycle along the northern coast of Beara, along rolling hills. Stopped for a little hike up to a stone circle, somehow missed the larger stone circle along this route. Arrived in Kenmare early enough to wash some laundry. Probably the highlight of the day ...
... of the things we saw on the drive were 'bee-hive' type houses which are hundreds of years old. We stopped for a photo and two of them which were right next to the highway. The two houses are on private property and if you want to get a close up picture of the structures, the owner of the property runs out and demands a 2 euro fee. Some of our tour paid for it. But I just used my camera lens to get a good shot. ...
... having closed down. But after a little searching we eventually found a nice little pub housing a surprising number of locals.
My meal was enormous with its classic Irish potatoes and its delicious saucy salmon. Brendon, meanwhile, has been steadily and happily working his way through Ireland's range of local beers.
And that's Ireland so far. We're going to head north tomorow, following its coastline
... around us and miss us!!
So off we headed expecting 4 -5 hours of driving which actually was a tad more. I started out so I could do the secondary roads leaving Rich the speedy motorways, ending with more twists and turns to get into Dingle. One missed road - poop - 20 - 30 minutes re-do - stopped after 2 hours at Craft village in Spiddal - great coffee ...
... only got into a little trouble twice as we were trying to find somewhere for lunch. Sometimes a cluster of houses is just a cluster of houses, possibly too small to call a hamlet. We eventually found a village with shops and a pub. We got to the pub just in time before the kitchen closed at 3. After lunch we travelled around the head of the peninsula for some fantastic scenery. The weather was kind to us today so we got to enjoy the views this time. Sheer cliffs driven out ...

Perfect Hotel in a Perfect Location
Having booked this hotel quickly from Tripadvisor I knew little of what to expect. What a treat! Resort quality room, good service and the best location imaginable in Dingle.
Walk out your door to all the is convenient in town at your footsteps. Enjoy an ultra clean room, this from a discreminating traveller. Great pub. Knowledgable front desk and good breakfast. Private parking and no smoking!
Need I go on. Stay here!
Very nice hotel
Checked in for three nights in February at this hotel. I enjoyed the stay very much. Our room was spacious as well as the bathroom. We had a room in back and it was very quiet. Service in the restaurant and breakfast areas were good as well as room service and daily cleaning. The location was perfect! On Main Street, so we could walk all over town. Parking was free and around the block with a back entrance to the hotel. The mid-week rates for off season were less than the B&B's.
I will stay here again on my next visit!
My husband and I traveled to Ireland with a tour this past summer and this was our favorite hotel. It has more charm, history, and flavor than any other hotel we visited. It absolutely provided my husband with an experience he will never forget. We were fortunate to stay in one of the large bedrooms overlooking the street and while a bit noisy at times it added to the drama. We cannot wait to get back to Dingle and again Benners will be our first choice.
Stayed in Benners for one night and I must say it was one of the best hotels I have stayed in Ireland. Because of work, I stay in many different hotels around the country, though this visit was a personal one. Our rooms weren't ready when we arrived but they went out of their way to be helpful to us. When we got into our rooms we were delighted to find that they were extremely spacious (Rms 104/105)and the staff could not be friendlier to us in general. Food was great (we had a snack and breakfast the next morning)and overall I would give it 10 out of 10. Good choice if you're staying in Dingle!
Go to Dingle and stay at Benners
Just spent a week in Ireland and I strongly recommend Benners. First, you have to go to Dingle. It is much nicer in every respect than the Ring. Read Rick Steves on Dingle if you have any questions. Once in Dingle, you should stay at Benners, unless you prefer the B&B experience. The only other real hotel choice is the Skellig and Dingle has a much better location. Skelling has a pool, but Benners guest can use it for a fee, albeit one that is ridiculously high. Rooms are large and the breakfast buffet is quite good. Not Manor House 5-Star quality, but stilll quite good. Very helpful staff as well.
My family and I recently stayed at Benner's in Dingle. We picked the hotel because four of my family members wanted private rooms and Benner's could accommodate this request. We found Benner's to be a charming boutique hotel with friendly staff and nicely appointed rooms. The rooms were very clean and the staff were by far the most accommodating. Benner's is right in town which allowed us to walk about and take a break from driving.
We loved our stay at Benner's. The hotel looks like nothing from the outside, but walk inside and see how far back it goes. The food was excellent and the staff, especially the desk and bar staff, were very personable and would go out of their way for you. Would recommend this hotel ten times over.
You could easily miss this hotel from the street. Relatively small entranceway. But the layout of the hotel rambles waaay back. Very nice decor and a nifty little bar. Rooms were good, clean, older furniture, comfy bed. Service was very good and the breakfast was top notch; lots of fresh choices. This hotel is right in "downtown" Dingle clost to pubs, shops, & waterfront.
4 star? You bet!
AFter our terrible stay at another Manor House Hotel(Hibernian Hotel in Ballsbridge Dublin) This was great. It looks small from the street but it is hugh! And very comfortable. We got it on the internet , and it was actually the room it showed. The people were very nice especially in the bar restaurent. The dining room was closed for the winter, but the food in the bar was very good. They did serve a wonderful breakfast in the dining room, very filling, and it was included in the resevation.
A great experience. We stayed at Benner's in Feb of '04 and completely enjoyed our stay. Very clean, freshly maintained rooms. Nice bar area.
