We stayed here on our way to The Ring of Kerry. Very nice place. It is placed on the edge of the town and is about a 15 minute walk to town. Room was very nice and the hosts were great in advising us where to eat etc..

My first visit to Ireland for a little while and Helen and Frank couldn't have been more welcoming to me and my friends. I have stayed here before (4 or 5 times) and it was lovely to be back and in "my" room. Thank you for looking after us so well and thank you for my star (now on my... More

Have just spent another enjoyable weekend stay at Oldchurch House with a group of friends. We are regular visitors and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in Kenmare. As I said in an earlier review, it really is our Irish home from home. Hosts Helen and Frank provide the warmest of welcomes and whenever we leave we are already thinking... More

We stayed a night along with friends of ours. We were greeted by Frank who kindly changed our room at the last minute to accommodate my request for a bed without a footboard (I am 6' 5" tall). Frank was wonderful and humorous. When Helen came home, we found a hostess who loves to do exactly what she is doing:... More

What a delightful find the Oldchurch House was! Our hosts were quite charming...really worked together as a team. We really liked our room...ground floor, no carpet...and my husband rated the shower as the best one he had been in thus far in Ireland. Lovely breakfast with a lovely view...definitely recommend it for anyone traveling in the area.

My husband, our 4 year old son, and I spent two wonderful days and nights in Kenmare in mid-August and we could not have picked a more lovely and hospitable place to park our car and our tired feet. Helen and Frank are wonderful, their home is warm and comfortable and we could not have enjoyed our stay more. I... More

Helen and Frank McGonigle are lovely hosts with a lovely B & B. We felt right at home and our room was lovely, spacious and very clean. We arrived as Helen & Frank were planning for the 150th celebration of their church. Frank showed us the book that was just published by the church called " Holy Cross Church Kenmare... More

As soon as we pulled in the driveway we knew we were going to have a wonderful stay. Frank welcomed us and showed us to our room because Helen was away, and as soon as she arrived home she welcomed us like long lost relatives. Our room was spacious and bright with a large bathroom, bed was very comfortable. The... More

We arrived at Kenmare in the evening and were greeted by Frank. He set us up and then gave us advice on places to get some supper. When we returned home a group of guests were also coming back from a tour of the Ring of Kerry. These guests were American too and we found out that Penn State was... More

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
