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

We stayed just one night at this very well positioned B and B. Our main aim was to see as much as we could of Kenmare and the surrounding area in 24 hours and so this central location worked well for us. There is a real buzz about this quintessential Irish town, both day and night, which we loved. The... More

We booked this B and B and when we arrived we were told that the room was taken. The female owner who had taken our booking two hours previously would not let us in and was extremely rude and abrupt with us. This meant it was night time and we had no place for myself and elderly father to stay.... More

Because we had spent a lot of our vacation on the road and driving is a challenge for those of us used to driving on the right, we decided to stay in Kenmare for 3 days and take a break from driving. Kenmare was the perfect village and the Rockcrest House was the perfect lodging. We could park the car... More

This was by far the most comfortable and spacious room in our 2 weeks in Ireland. We had a corner king room with a beautiful view overlooking the gardens and the town of Kenmare below. The bedroom and bath were quite spacious. Breakfast was delicious. Rockcrest House is an easy walk to the lovely town of Kenmare, a great multi-night... More

This beautiful B&B is situated close to the town center of Kenmare. It is spacious with great bathroom and a excellent breakfast. David and his wife are a good hostage family and they help you with many explanations about the village and sightseeings around.

We had an excellent 1-night stay at Rockcrest B&B during our two week visit to Ireland. It was tops on our list of B&Bs we visited. Although it's tucked away on a very quiet lane, they posted directional street signs on turns as you drive into town. This B&B is ideally located with plenty of on-site parking and a pleasant...
