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 😋😀👍

Excellent hospitality at the rockcrest. The couple running the bed and breakfast, Marian and David, were so welcoming. They were more than happy to provide tips on where to visit in the local area and how best to get there. The room we were staying in was very comfy and clean.

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.
