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

My wife and I were bicycle touring through Kenmare in July and the day we arrived had experienced some problems with one of our bikes. Not only did they provide us with an excellent room and breakfast, they also opened their workshop to us so that we could work on our bikes. The location is excellent as well with about... More

My husband and I love to stay at B&Bs because of the personal interaction with the owners. The hosts were not your typical Irish B&B hosts. They were a bit too reserved. Our room was nice however the towels were below average. The breakfast was our least favorite in Ireland with no fresh fruit and meager portions.

Beautiful home with stunning rock garden in front within walking distance from the town. Rooms are elegant with lovely decorating and plush beds, invigorating shower. Owners are gracious and helpful - gave us good recommendations for dining, shopping, and visiting the Ring of Kerry. Even kindly offered to return a key for me which I had mistakenly kept from the...

I highly recommend the Rockcrest House in Kenmare. We had a beautiful room facing the front and could see lamb in the field in front of us. The owners greeted us with a pot of fresh tea and cookies delivered to our room. Kenmare is a charming small town and great launching point to explore the Ring of Kerry. Additionally,... More

Rockcrest House was a top notch place to stay. Not only is it close to town, it is very comfortable and elegant. The hosts are very kind and want to do what they can to make sure you have what you need to enjoy your stay. The breakfast in the morning was the best breakfast I have had during my... More

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
