Having traveled for quite a few nights in Ireland and staying at B&B's, I can say this place stands above all. A very pleasant hostess, Helen, eager to provide tips for further travel, dining, etc. The place is a nice 15 minute walk to town, much welcome after driving for the day. Definitely worth a booking.

I've reviewed Old Church House B&B before with our last stay. I started coming to Kenmare because the annual Rally of the Lakes stages are all over the area. I found Old Church B&B 2 years ago and have stayed twice now for several days. Alot of people stay in the crazy busy Killarney, I love the hometown feel of... More

A definite treasure of a stay. Greeted so kindly when we entered and shown to our spectacular room our hosts were amazing. The decor was very sophisticated and well kept. The bed was so comfortable and everything fell into place just nicely here. The view from our room was to die for and we were certainly happy all around with... More

We stayed 2 wonderful nights at Oldchurch House. The B&B is located just outside of Kenmare, an easy 12 minute walk into town. Our room was very clean, comfortable, and huge by B&B standards. There were beautiful gardens in the front and back of the house. Helen, the proprietor, was helpful without being intrusive. She had maps of all the... More

Helen McGonigle and her husband custom built their new home to accommodate a B&B operation. It has the look and feel of a private home, with well designed and positioned guest rooms. They built a beautiful garden in the back that looks out on a golf course. Just a lovely spot. Plenty of parking at the front door. Less than... More

After a harrowing drive through the beautiful Irish country side, we arrived at OldChurch House a bit late but were gratiously greeted by Frank and Helen. After settling into our beautiful rooms, Frank offered to drive us into town and show us some great places for drinks and music. The location of the B&B was perfect-a 15 minute walk into... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in Kenmare. Helen and Frank were gracious hosts. They made us feel very welcome in their lovely home. Helen served as a delicious breakfast each morning. We loved the fact the we could walk into town and enjoy the pubs without fear of driving home. Kenmare is a wonderfully quaint town with... More

We spent 2 nights in Kemare with our wonderful hosts, Helen and Frank! This B&B was spotless, comfortable and convenient to town. Helen cooked a great breakfast and had excellent recommendations for sightseeing and for dinner! Would return to Old Church House and recommend with out hesitation!

This is a fantastic spot with a great hostess who goes well above and beyond to make sure you are well looked after and enjoy your trip. We stayed here for 4 nights and don't have anything bad to say. The location is great. You're a 10 minute walk into town and connected right to the main roads through Kenmare... More
