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

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
