Once we found the B&B, everything improved 100%! It was beautiful and David was delightful. The walk to town was easy. Our beds were comfortable. The shower was great. Breakfast by Marian was delicious. We would recommend this B&B to anyone driving the Ring of Kerry.

My husband and I are in Ireland for a month and had mainly stayed in the Dublin area, awaiting the arrival my cousins. Once here, we headed west with plans to explore a most gorgeous region of Ireland. Our first B&B experience in Ireland was the Rockcrest House. We arrived in the charming village of Kenmare and found our B&B... More

What a great B&B! Rockcrest House is a beautiful B&B with wonderful hosts! Marion makes the best brown bread and has amazing fresh jam with breakfast. She was willing to make anyone whatever they wanted on the menu as well. We had a gorgeous view of the town and the mountains beyond from our room, and our room and bathroom... More

We loved our stay at Rockcrest House! The B&B is absolutely gorgeous from the outside, with beautiful landscaping. The interior is traditional but still comfortable. We were pleased to find plenty of pillows and blankets (of varying weights) on our bed, and the mattress was very comfortable. We probably slept better here than at any other B&B in Ireland. The...

We arrived in Kenmare without booking, so this was a Tourist Office recommendation, and a great choice. We had the usual warm Irish welcome with tea in the lounge before being shown to our room. It was very spacious with lovely views to the surrounding hills, and everything met our full satisfaction, not least being the large efficient shower. A... More

From the minute we arrived and were met by David (who served us tea and cookies in their beautiful reception room) until we left we couldn't have felt more welcomed by Marian and David. Rockcrest has an amazing front yard, the pictures don't do it justice. To get into town you walk down this "leafy" tree lined street, cross a... More

My husband and I just got home from our trip to Ireland. While there, we stayed in multiple B&B's all over. Rockcrest was by far or favorite! Kenmare is such a fun and beautiful city. Rockcrest is situated just minutes from the town center, and within walking distance from some historical sites. David and Marion were so hospitable and friendly.... More

Rockcrest is a lovely house in a beautiful setting within easy walking distance to the restaurants, pubs and shops of Kenmare. The rooms are spacious, clean and well-appointed. The exterior gardens are amazingly beautiful. Breakfast is wonderful. The view is lovely. But David and Marian are the stars of the show. They are the most caring, hospitable people you could...
