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

The four of us were pleasantly surprised by this lovely B & B. Marian met us upon arrival and gave us suggestions for food and pubs in Kenmare in order to enjoy our stay. Our rooms were amazing. One room was huge with a full windowed panoramic views. The B & B was a short walk to the shops and... More

Rockcrest is a lovely B & B. Our room had large windows to overlook the flower garden. Dave and Marian are very welcoming. We enjoyed the sitting room while watching the Eurocup. Marian started our morning off with a delicious full Irish breakfast. Each morning she bakes fresh brown bread. There are other choices. It is a short, scenic walk... More

I stayed here on my own whilst riding around Kerry on my motorbike for the weekend. Marian couldn't have been more helpful and accomodating. They even changed my room to a cheaper one as I was on my own ! There is plenty of car parking and the house is in a very quiet area with great views. Rooms are... More

Very welcoming and informative host and hostess. Our room was quiet with a wonderful view out the front window. The rooms were nicely decorated and large. The breakfast was excellent and the fruit platter was huge. The breakfast encourages travelers to talk about where they have been or where they are going. We had tea when we arrived with another...

I don't have enough superlatives to describe this place. The couple that owns/runs the B&B were great - very friendly and breakfast was great! A traditional homemade Irish breakfast, homemade brown bread, and friendly service with a smile. We even got hugs when we left. Our room for three was huge and modern. The location was very convenient to the... More

Everything was great-thoughtful host, convenient to town, quiet location. Breakfast was good and timely and more than enough! Bedroom nice and spacious, quiet and good bed. If I returned to Kenmare, I'd stay here again.
