The house is lovely, and the welcome is even lovelier! Helen and Frank were so kind in more ways than I can count. I happened to be travelling by myself, so I especially appreciated how they went out of their way to help me with all the logistics of my stay in the area. Even though I was in Kenmare... More

We had a wonderful experience at Old Church House B&B. Helen and Frank are fantastic hosts. The house and the garden are beautiful; the rooms are comfortable and clean; the breakfast was very good. Everything was perfect.

We spent several nights with Helen and Frank at the Old Churchhouse B and B in Kenmare. This was the second B and B, of our Ireland trip, and since the first in Ennis was no nice, we wondered if this could compare favorably. It certainly did. The house his very clean, comfortable and attractive. The view from our bedroom... More

Stayed here for two nights and our host Helen couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Gave us great tips on where to go during our stay. The room was really nice and clean. The b+b is only half a mile from the town. Really enjoyed our weekend in Kenmare, and would definitely return to Oldchurch House.

Helen and Frank were outstanding hosts. We left some souvenirs behind, and they shipped them to us at our next stop and trusted us to repay them (which we did). The pubs in Kenmare were outstanding - enjoy the traditional music, but lookout for the Harpists - AMAZING!

Kenmare is a wonderful town and the Old Church House is a wonderful place to stay. Helen and Frank were welcoming, kind and interested in how we'd spent out day and offered suggestions for how we could spend it. Helen's restaurant recommendations (The Lime Tree and Mulcahy's) were great; our meals there were memorable and delicious. Their home is lovely,... More

I stayed here with a friend for two nights. The location which is just out of the town center enables a quiet and peaceful place to rest. Rooms are spacious and clean. The owners are very helpful with recommendations and were kind enough to give us ice for our cooler the day we left since we had a long ride... More

My husband and I just stayed for 2 nights in Old Church House. Frank and Helen were so welcoming and helpful throughout our stay, we really felt at home in their house. If you're interested in walking and sightseeing in the area they will take the time to help you plan routes and ideas for day trips etc. Our room... More

So glad we read the positive reviews on trip advisor before picking this gem. Loved the room, the food, the hosts - would definitely stay here again. Got great suggestions on what to do, where to eat etc. Easy to find, within walking distance of downtown. Thanks for the great stay!

I stayed with a friend last weekend with Frank and Helen. It was from start to end a perfect stay. The room was spacious and light. The breakfast was absolutely delicious (I loved the scrammled egg and salmon). Helen gave us recommendations for seeing the local and the tip to do the Ring of Beara instead of Kerry was simply...
