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...

My son and I stayed two nights with Frank and Helen. Accomodations were comfortable, breakfast was excellent, location was very convenient. What set our experience apart from other B & B's was the personal attention and concern of the hosts. I was ill and Helen was able to get me a medical appointment almost immediately, which helped me enjoy my... More

Helen and Frank, the proprietors of Oldchurch House, made our stay more wonderful than it would have been. They took time to show us maps and make recommendations for seeing the local area which changed our plans for the better. The best advice we had was from Frank, who in helping us plan a tour of the Beara Peninsula simply... More

This is an excellent B&B -- we would call it a luxury B&B. The house is lovely. Our room (and the ones we peeked into) was spacious and extremely well decorated. No dusty old decor here! The rooms either have a view of the old church or of the mountains and fields of Kerry. Helen and Frank were very nice... More

On our journey through Ireland with my husband, sister and her husband, we stayed at Oldchurch House and had a fantastic experience. Kenmare is the perfect location for the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Beara. Helen was a welcoming host and Frank her husband was friendly and congenial. Helen suggested several restaurants that did not disappoint in the... More

Helen was fantastic and the accommodations were fantastic. She provided awesome recommendations for exploring the area. Food was also very good! Loved this location! We would definitely stay in this B&B again and recommend to anyone traveling to this area of Ireland.

We selected Oldchurch based on the positive reviews, proximity to town and the pictures and they all met or exceeded our expectations. The room was spacious and Helen was most hospitable. If you're looking for a place to stay before getting an early start on the Ring of Kerry, you can't go wrong with Oldchurch.
