I stayed at Rockcrest House when I visited for a local fiddle course. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I have several food sensitivities and they were very understanding about this. They allowed me time to practice in the salon and also gave me my space when I snuck back to my room to nap on a few occasions....

We stayed at Rockcrest House for 3 nights during our honeymoon in Oct 2016. Our room was clean and quiet and the bed was comfortable. David was very welcoming and offered us tea and biscuits upon arrival. He also gave us restaurant suggestions. The location is perfect- close enough to town to walk, but far enough away to be quiet...

We only stayed at Rockcrest House for one night but we really loved it. David was great - he served us tea and toast even though we slept in too late to get the full breakfast (due to jet lag)! He was also fine with us checking in late the night before. He gave us great recommendations for dinner and...

Although it is over a year since we visited Ireland, Marion and David stand out as the best hosts of any B+B we've ever used. They were incredibly hospitable, offering their fine crystal and living room for our before dinner drinks, and they provided the appies. On arrival, David made us tea and biscuits after our long day of travel....

This was, without a doubt, our favorite part of the trip. We stayed on the top floor with the view facing out front which was just the most excellent room. Very clean, had everything we needed. The bathroom (shower) was very modern and was so nice I came home trying to find a way to get that set up for...

Very nice B&B. Beautiful grounds. Large room (#7) for a B&B. Breakfast was good. Walking distance to town, but it is uphill coming back from town, so be ready for that. Owners were polite, but not overly friendly.

Following an overnight stay in Rockcrest House, we can collectively say that it was unquestionably the most pleasant stay we have ever experienced in a B&B, anywhere! The rooms were spacious, modern and immaculately clean. The beds were extremely comfortable. Most striking of all was the hospitality shown to us by its proprietors. As we were attending a family wedding...

My wife and daughter recently stayed at Rockcrest House for three nights. The rooms were extremely nice and spacious and the views in the morning were spectacular. The breakfasts were especially good with the homemade brown breads. The house was within easy walking distance from the town center and we walked to downtown and back each night. Also, being on...

My husband and I had such a fantastic stay at Rockcrest House. It's the perfect location- within walking distance to the town, but tucked enough away so that you feel secluded.
