Our stay was just right. Marian and David have done a great job with this property. The room was clean and accommodating, the breakfast was delicious and the hosts were quite helpful. The location is very close to the middle of town - which is fun to explore, and to the Ring of Kerry which is a must see.

We stayed here in late May. It is very pretty from the outside and the view from the top is nice. The room is nice and clean. Marian greeted us on arrival and was more than accommodating to our arrival after 6pm.

We enjoyed our three day stay at Rockcrest House. What a beautiful room with wonderful views. We were greeted by Marian with tea and scones. Breakfasts were freshly prepared with homemade brown bread and wonderful porridge. Walking distance to Kenmare with lots of pubs.

David and Marian are extremely friendly with great knowledge of not just Kenmare but the surrounding areas too. The house is very clean and the shower is powerful and hot. The rooms are very well decorated with very comfortable beds and linen. We had our 1 year old son with us and Marian was great with him and anticipated his... More

What a beautiful B&B! It sits on a quaint lane that is a 5 minute walk to the restaurants and pubs. Fiona met us and gave us recommendations for dinner and music which was spot on. Everything was very pretty from the entryway to the sitting room to our guest room. Our room had a huge bay window that overlooked... More

We had a most enjoyable two nights stay at Rockcrest House. It is a beautiful home just an easy five minute walk to the town of Kenmare. Marian greeted us with coffee and biscuits in the sitting room on our arrival which was a very nice touch. She made us feel most welcome. Our room was spacious and had a... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in Kenmare. The owners were very inviting and the accommodations were comfortable. We slept great! Marian's nutella pancakes were yummy! The center of town is just around the corner with several pubs with music. Best of all we made new friends. Thank you!

Rockcrest House sits just a five minute walk from the town center of Kenmare. David and Marion were fantastic hosts and their dog Rollo was playful and gentle with our son. The rooms are bright, clean, and wonderful. Just across the street there is a field with sheep and young lambs who contributed to our authentic Irish countryside experience. We... More

The owners David and Marian were so kind and welcoming. They made sure that we enjoyed our stay and were quick to recommend good places to eat in Kenmare. The views from our room were of the mountains and spectacular. Breakfast in the morning was served with a smile, large, and delicious. We would go back one hundred times over.
