We stayed 2 nights at Rockcrest House and it was terrific. David and Marian were gracious hosts, helping us with tips for dining, catching some good trad music, and navigating the Ring of Kerry. Make sure you do not miss Marian's pancakes, which are more like a light and delicious crepe. The breakfasts were generous and delicious. Our room was... More

From our greeting on arrival through to breakfast the next morning everything was great! David gave us wonderful recommendations for dinner that night and about some live music in town. He also gave us directions to the stone circle and Cromwell's Bridge, (just down the street). We had the king room with the bay window looking out front. The room... More

We absolutely loved this B & B. The rock gardens are spectacular. It is a lovely short walk to town and nice restaurants. We liked Davitt's the best. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was wonderful. The hosts were very helpful and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay while in Kenmare. I have already recommended it... More

Really enjoyed our stay here, with a beautiful breakfast, and great company. Fun to visit with the travelers at breakfast. Very quaint town to visit within walking distance. We miss the beautiful dog that awaited us outside too! The owners were away, but put us in good hands with her daughter,

I spent one night with my family (2 adults and a 8-month old baby) and everything was perfect: silent room, comfortable bed, excellent Irish breakfast and the owners of the house are really nice (they entertained my son during the breakfast time). Highly recommended!

Our room was so very spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and filling. The gardens in front of the house were very lovely, and the walk to town was short and safe.

This is a great place to stay. Convenient location, very friendly and informative hosts, plus a fantastic breakfast service. Our hosts provided great advice for our Ring of Kerry drive. The breakfast was of very generous proportions and we had a lovely large bedroom with a dormer window.
