Nice place in the middle of nowhere. Receptionist was very, I mean VERY welcoming and friendly. I had to remove one star because one of the bed linen was dirty but they reacted promptly right after we told them. Kitchen is quite convenient. Everything is clean and organised. They even provide group activities. Thanks

My son had his wedding at Benwiskin 11 years ago and we decided to repeat the experience for his 40th birthday. The accommodation is comfortable and spacious with excellent kitchen facilities, dining area and a large common room equipped with a TV and children's toys.

The surrounding area is quiet and of exceptional natural...

The main meeting room was ideal for our group's activities - yoga, music, chatting etc. Kitchen, dining room, bedrooms, bathrooms, gardens, children's play area all excellent. And what a location... 5 minutes to Mullaghmore beach in one direction, 5 minutes to incredible Benwiskin mountain in the other. Where...

Stayed two nights at Benwiskin Centre. Lovely big ensuite room. Very clean and comfortable. Kitchen facilities extensive with large fridge, freezer, cookers etc. Everything you could think of! Staff were lovely to deal with yet left us alone. Lovely to see the centre used by the community during the day and in no way did this interfere with our stay....
