The owners David and Marian were so kind and welcoming. They made sure that we enjoyed our stay and were quick to recommend good places to eat in Kenmare. The views from our room were of the mountains and spectacular. Breakfast in the morning was served with a smile, large, and delicious. We would go back one hundred times over.

Very nice B&B. Very clean and beautiful large bedroom and bathroom. Easy walk into to town, many restraunts and pubs. Breakfast was great. David and Marian were gracious hosts. Will definitely stay there again.

We got here late and had to leave early, but the hosts were so nice! They brought us some hot tea and biscuits and had a breakfast set up ready for us early in the morning. The room was great and the house was beautiful. I would go back!

We were welcomed by the host's daughter and were introduced to our room and the facilities while we had a lovely chat and were given tea and biscuits. The room was very beautiful and tidy with an amazingly cozy bed. Breakfast was huge and delicious and the host was very willing to give us a great start of the day.... More

A wonderful B&B with friendly and accommodating hosts! When we made a mistake with reservations (my fault), they helped us immediately. Beautiful location a very short walk away from downtown Kenmare--across a beautiful foot bridge into town. Breakfasts were excellent. Rooms were fabulous and beds were very comfortable. Our room had a view looking into town and to the hills... More

Excellent, friendly, good room plus breakfast and good shower & bath. Place is around 400 metres from Kenmare with good parking facilities. Will definitely stay again. The B&B is located on a good elevated site.

Just home after a lovely overnight stay in Rockcrest house. On arrival, we were welcomed with lovely cup of tea and homemade scone by our lovely hostess. Lovely room with one of the most comfortable beds we ever slept in. Very nice breakfast with lovely homemade brown bread. Would definitely recommend a stay here

We loved our stay here. My husband and I had room 4, and what a gem it was! It has an window wrapped alcove that I'm guessing is about 12x6 that has beautiful views of the surrounding hills. The sleigh bed was really comfortable. Our two grown daughters had a lovely room as well, with one twin and one double... More

I booked this B & B after speaking to a dear friend of mine who lives in Kenmare and how right he was to praise this B & B and what a fantastic stay all seven of us had. As soon as we all arrived at Rockcrest House ( Marion & David ) welcomed us all with a lovely cup... More
