“Fabulous b&bOur”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We stayed at Rockcrest for one night and only have good things to say. The room and bathroom were spacious and the bed was so comfy! The house was minutes away from the town, a pleasant walk. Breakfast was great, you can have whatever you wanted and as much as you wanted too! What more could you want!!!

Room Tip: We travelled with another couple and Had the 2 double rooms upstairs.

Just returned from a weeks stay in Lodgewood Cottage, a self catering house owned by Marian & David. This is a lovely three bedroom house situated a two minute stroll from town. It is well equipped and has lovely front and back gardens. We were even treated to some of Marian's delicious homemade scones. This was our second time to stay here and we will return again.

Some B&Bs are locared right in town, many of them you have to walk a couple minutes in. This one is such a perfect location that it was the best walk in, along a creek, over a stone bridge and you are right there. Just a nice stroll. We had room six, upstairs looking out the front. It was big, light, clean. Plenty of plugs, good WiFi and clever hidden coffee set up. The breakfast was really well done, with fresh potatoes right out of the garden. Yum! You can order as little or as much as you want, she is very generous. Some German bicyclists were there, they have been staying every year for like ten or twenty years so that tells you something right there. Good stay, one night, €80

I stayed at Rockcrest House with two friends and it was wonderful! Marion and David go out of their way to be accommodating! Their suggestions for eating and touring were very helpful. Their house is lovely! Our room and bathroom was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious! The location is perfect for walking to the centre of town - very close. I would highly recommend staying at Rockcrest House!

Stayed in Rockcrest for the Kenmare food festival. We experienced some gourmet food in Kenmare town but also a gourmet breakfast at Rockcrest. Our stay here was the highlight of the holiday such wonderfully friendly and caring hosts. We have pencilled in a return trip already.

my sister and i stayed here in june 2013. of all the b&b's during our 9 day stay in ireland....this one was the BEST! our hosts were delightfully professional, helpful and friendly. the attention to detail will strike you as soon as you arrive. the grounds are perfectly tended and absolutely lovely for a relaxing stay in kenmare. it is just a 3 minute stroll into the main centre of town. and our host gave us a useful map of the area which she labeled by hand to notate the good pubs and restaurants for us. when we arrived, our host promptly offered us a comforting cup of tea with our room key. she took our bags to our room as we needed help. our room was beautifully furnished with attention to detail throughout. even the towels had a pretty design to compliment the room. this B&B is immaculately clean and truly an upgrade to your typical B&B. best of all, our host is an excellent cook! her brown bread baked with pumpkin seeds was the finest in ireland in our book! this B&B should win all awards for accommodations in ireland. surprisingly, the rate was the same as the other B&B's we stayed in. but it was FAR better in cleanliness, conveniently located, beautiful furnishings, friendly professional hosts and the bonus of an excellent cook. i will be booking here again for several days when my husband and i make our trip to ireland. i highly recommend this B&B on all accounts. this B&B was a real find for my sister and i, and i look forward to returning soon. thank you from marie (philadelphia) and beatrice (new jersey)

Room Tip: we had a corner room with only a few steps to climb with our bags. lots of windows for fresh air and...

I and my sister stayed at Rockcrest for one night last October, I was happy to read in the hallway of the B&B that they had recommendations from Trip Advisor. However, our experience was disappointing and I would not recommend it. Although the room was pleasant and clean with lovely views we asked if the heating could be put on as it was quite chilly, it was done with reluctance.
The breakfast was disgraceful, the two slices of bacon were charred and the egg overfried, it was serve on a side plate along with some cheap white bread. The gentleman of the house who served us advised his wife was away and he was in charge of the kitchen! We had stayed in various B&B's on our trip and this was a poor attempt, it appears we were unlucky in our choice of dates and the delicious breakfast referred to in your reviews.
