Nice people, nice house. The room had a nice view but was not furnished with the king bed we were expecting. We didn't question or argue about it. The bath was clean but spartan, with a sloped ceiling. At 5'6" it didn't bother me but if I were 6' it would have. Location is a short stroll to town and... More

This B&B is everything it advertises and more! Signage to find it was easy to follow, the beautiful house is set atop the wonderfully landscaped yard and you are greeted by the coolest dog named Rollo! (we're actually considering getting one like her now!) David & Mary and very accommodating and eager to help. The bed was heaven, especially compared... More

My husband and I stayed at Rockcrest for two nights last week. Marian is a charming and cheerful hostess, and her guest house is spotlessly clean and wonderfully comfortable. We had a lovely view of the gardens out front, the bed was super comfortable, and the bathroom made me want to have one just like it at home. Marian's breakfasts... More

During our recent trip to Ireland, we had a wonderful experience at Rockcrest House in Kenmare. The warm, welcoming feeling we got from Marian and David made this one of our favorite B and B's. Their home is immaculate and very comfortable. We loved that it was walking distance into town! They served a delicious breakfast the next morning after... More

We stayed in Rockcrest for an evening after a friends wedding. The hosts were lovely, rooms was spacious and bed was super comfortable. The lovely owner even dropped us down to the church so I didn't have to walk down the hill in my heels! The breakfast was delicious. A menu would have been great though, as they had a... More

The hosts of Rockcrest were very welcoming. The room we were given for our stay accommodated 3 twin beds and was very spacious. The room was clean and had an excellent view. We enjoyed the flower beds in front of the house and the short walk from the B&B into town for site seeing. We used Rockcrest House as a... More

We stayed three nights at Rockcrest House in Kenmare last week. This was our third time staying there with David and Marian, and so we knew it was the perfect place. The location is perfect for walking into town or starting a driving tour. The day we arrived my husband had a bad cold and laryngitis. As we were leaving... More

This is one of the most friendly and comfortable bed and breakfast houses I have ever stayed in. From the moment we arrived to the time we left we were looked after by Marianne and David who were so friendly and helpful. Each day we started with a beautiful home prepared breakfast and home made bread and a chat over... More

Had lovely time in Kenmare. This was the perfect stay on a nice country road but close by to the town - a charming 5 minute walk. Our room was beautiful and spacious as well as nice bathroom. All was very clean. Beautiful house and delicious breakfast. Great hospitality. Thank you for the wonderful stay! Also - cutest bernese mountain... More

We had a wonderful two night stay in December. The house is large, comfortable and warm. The bed was divine with an en suite shower that was better than the hotel in Galway. My husband was exhausted from all our traveling, he literally stayed in bed to recover for a full Day. Marion was the perfect hostess offering a tray... More
