We had an excellent night in Kenmare and the location and price of Rockcrest house fit into our trip perfectly. The room was large and well appointed and the breakfast good. The location was an easy walk to town and back, even in the dark. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying here to anyone.

We had a great stay with Marian and David. Ideal location for walking into town. The room was very clean and comfortable and David and Marian were very helpful and welcoming. The breakfasts were outstanding and no request was too much trouble. . We particularly loved Marian's soda bread.

We thought the property was lovely. The bed was comfy & the room clean. We stayed just one night & were glad to have been to Kenmare. We met our hosts at breakfast. The stay was spoiled by the cranky lady of the house who turned ugly when it came time to pay our bill. You must pay with cash!!!... More

Dear Shamrocks4me, Thank you for staying with us and thank you for the nice positive comments you wrote on Rockcrest House. It was very unfortunate that you did not read our policies which states that we use the credit card for reservation purposes only and guests pay with cash on departure. This is stated on all our websites. Thanks again... More

We thoroughly loved our 3 night stay at Rockcrest House. From our first arrival David and Marian were warm and welcoming. David helped us immensely in deciding the details and routes of each day's activities - so helpful to get tips on navigating the area from a local. The rooms were very comfortable - beautiful, spacious bathrooms newly remodeled, very... More

The city of Kenmare is so beautiful and charming and Rockcrest was the perfect place to stay. Marion and David were the perfect hosts. They took care of all our needs and were so accommodating to our family of 5 after we had gotten soaked to the skin while riding our bikes in the national park. They graciously put all... More

Kenmare was a lovely town and Rockcrest was a lovely, relaxing place to stay. The gardens are beautiful, the breakfast was delicious, and the room was very clean and well-appointed, with an extremely comfortable mattress. Our hosts were very kind and had great suggestions about places to eat. There is also a cute dog.

Clean roomy bedroom. Comfortable beds. Wonderful view. Huge bathroom. Lots of hot water. I couldn't recommend this place more highly. Excellent breakfast, cooked to order by the friendly couple. It is located within 5 minutes walk from the town center, but is very secluded and quiet.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Rockcrest House. We were warmly welcomed by David for whom nothing seemed too much trouble. Our room was spacious and very attractively furnished with a large bathroom. Breakfast was delicious with home made soda bread made by Marion and very good home-made muesli. We were offered all sorts of extras such as fresh... More

My wife and I decided on the UK for our honeymoon, and Kenmare was at the tail end of the Ring of Kerry, so it was a definite stopping point for us. In looking at a number of website, Rockcrest seemed to be a great fit in both price, location, and room quality. I have to say, the experience was... More
