Had 2 nights in gorgeous Kenmare. Beautiful little tourist town with bright lights out for Xmas. Stayed with Marian and David at Rockcrest just 5 min walk out of town. Lovely accommodation and well looked after. Look out for Marian’s home cooked bread. Delicious 😋😀👍

Families are always welcome at Rockcrest House and your 12 year old may like to play with our Berneese Mountain dog (still a puppy - even though she is big) - she is very playfull. Take care. David.
