Very spacious room on the ground floor. Lovely hosts, very caring and welcoming. This B and B is up a lovely winding road, an easy walk to the centre of the town, Cromwells bridge is even on this lane. Only problem we had was with the wifi, but they had a lovely sitting room that it worked well in. My... More

This was a return visit to Rockcrest House 15 years after the first time. We were not disappointed, it was just as fabulous as we had remembered. Our hosts, David and Marian, were so hospitable and always prepared to go that little bit extra. The location is quiet but yet only a five minute walk to the centre of Kenmare... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at Rockcrest House during our honeymoon in Ireland, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience at this delightful B&B. We explored the magnificent Killarney National Park during the day, and wandered the fun little village of Kenmare by night, where we lucked out with an evening of fabulous music by Michael... More

Rockcrest House is a lovely home, just a short walk from the Kenmare town center. Marion and David are great hosts and freely provide a lot of useful information for tourists. Our room was large and comfortable, with a lovely view. At Marion's suggestion we toured the Ring Of Beara and enjoyed it very much.

We stayed at Marion and David's place a week ago and it was perfect. Highly recommended and so dog friendly! The breakfast was fab and the room and bathroom was spotless. So handy for beautiful kenmare. We will be returning. Many thanks for the effort you made for us.

Marian and David have a beautiful home in the lovely town of Kenmare, and are both kind and accommodating. From the delicious breakfast to the cozy and beautifully furnished rooms, our stay in this B&B was memorable and all-around perfect! It was an easy, quick walk into town, and the surrounding area proved to be picturesque. We will absolutely be... More

Great location, quiet yet quick walk to town (Davd will clue you in on the shortcut). Fabulous breakfast, with lots of choices -- only sorry I didn't have more than 2 days to work my way through the menu. Marian is a great baker -- best brown bread we had anywhere and her tomato bread was fabulous. Our hosts were... More

I chose this B&B for its location and value and was not disappointed. While it's slightly outside of the town central, it's only a five minute very pleasant walk to the center of the town. It's also very close to the stone circle on the outskirts of the town. We had a spacious room (#4) on the ground floor with... More

This place was awesome. The 5 minute walk to town was pleasant and convenient. As the same time you felt you were in the country. The 4 of us stayed in 2 rooms (2 adults and 2 teenagers). The house was immaculate. David and Marian were such welcoming hosts. Upon arrival David immediately provided recommendations on places to eat and... More
