5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Stayed in Room 8 with skylight and large bathroom. Great comfy king bed. Breakfast was fabulous, the homemade tomato and basil bread was some of the best we've had anywhere. Owners extremely cordial and accommodating (bad pun, I know). Short walk to downtown. Highly recommended. We'll be back some day.

Only in town for one night but the B&B was fabulous. Hosts were very welcoming. Breakfast was excellent. Loved being able to walk to town for the evening. Easy parking. We will definitely seek this out to stay again in the future.

Only stayed one night but loved the place. Great gardens and house. Very nice and gracious hosts. Wonderful breakfast. Easy parking. Short walk to town - which provided for some peace and quiet away from the town center.

My wife, two children and I checked in again recently to Rockcrest and once again had a lovely summer break. This was our 2nd year in a row and we'll definitely be back next Summer. We had a really nice welcome which went down really well with the kids. Bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious. The dining room was bright... More

Fantastic B&B in a perfect location for visiting Kenmare! The room was spacious and clean with a great view of the garden. My husband and I really enjoyed the delicious breakfast served by Marion and David. The homemade brown bread was outstanding! Highly recommended!

We had booked one night at this B&B. The house is in a lovely setting, very nice and only five minutes from the town. When we arrived David greeted us and asked if we had a booking which we confirmed. He asked us to wait as he seemed puzzled. He came back and said we had the choice of two... More

Firstly, thank you for your review, we appreciate all feedback. Secondly, this review raises equal amounts of surprise and disappointment. It would be standard policy to check the room allocations when guests arrive and offer them a choice of rooms. We offer our guests first preference based on a number of factors; upstairs, downstairs, room view, layout, beds etc. Both... More

Great stay, great price. We booked the King Suite and it was beautiful and large. Breakfast was great, lots of food choices in a nice dining no room. The location was an easy, 5 minute walk from the center of town with plenty of options for strolling, eating, pubs, and more.

We stayed at several B&Bs across Ireland, and this was our favorite! First of all, the property itself is really nice--sitting on top of a small hill yet just a 5-minute pleasant walk into the heart of town, it is well manicured and very nice to look at. Our host, David, was very friendly, kind and helpful. We booked a... More

Thank you both so much for choosing Rockcrest House and for writing such a fantastic review . Sorry that I forgot to show you the sliding black out blind on the skylight - my mistake. It was a pleasure to have you as our guests. Hopefully we will be in a position to accommodate you both sometime in the future.... More

My two grown children and I stayed here for just one night, and couldn't have been happier with everything. The B&B is absolutely beautiful - house, landscaping, and all. Our room was perfect for us (3 separate beds), great size, en-suite bathroom. David and Marian were very gracious hosts, and the breakfast was excellent. The location is wonderful, on a... More
