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

We received a warm welcome on arrival from Helen which continued right up to and including our departure. Our room, number 4 was upstairs with a view of the golf course which backed onto the property. The room was spacious and the ensuite was modern and sparkling clean. Breakfast was plentiful, using quality produce and was exceptionally cooked and presented.... More

Room was clean and spacious and had a nice bathroom with a larger than average shower for Irish standards. Very easy drive to town and a great starting point for the Ring of Kerry. Would have loved to sit with Helen and hear more about the area, but the accommodations were great.

We stayed at this bed-and-breakfast in early April for one night, but I wish we would have stayed longer. Helen was very helpful, the room was very clean, and breakfast was the best we had during the week we spent in Ireland. I highly recommend staying here, and I would certainly choose this bed-and-breakfast again.

Oldchurch House B&B was very clean! The room was very nice. It is a little far from the town of Kenmare, but very easy to drive in to the center of town. It is a great location to start the Ring of Kerry from. Helen was a great hostess and served a wonderful breakfast.

The location was wonderful. It is nearby the city center but in the same time it is private and quiet. You can go into town to have dinner and then the walk back is exactly what you need after dinner. The host was very friendly and helpful but in the same time she was intrusive and she respected our privacy.... More

The first day in Ireland is always difficult - so tired and cranky when you finally arrive at your lodging place. Helen welcomed us warmly and helped us settle down. Her home is clean and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was perfect, and Helen and Frank got us started off on the right foot. Kenmare is utterly charming - we... More
