“Outstanding in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

My friend and I recently stayed two nights at the Rockcrest House, and we wished we could have stayed longer! This B & B is gorgeous and spotlessly clean! And the owners are friendly and generous, and their breakfasts are delicious! Can't recommend it high enough. You will not be disappointed!!

Absolutely splendid bed and breakfast accomodation, lovely people, excellent rooms and excellent food. Just can't fault it, and great value too! We were on a vintage motorcycling holliday, and Kenmare is such a fantastic base for this. We loved it.

I wanted to send my wonderful parents to Kenmare for a few days and chose Rockcrest because of reviews I saw here. My parents were treated like royalty by David and Marian and they both said they were thrilled with their hospitality. My mother felt the peace of this bed and breakfast was one of its main assets. They plan to return there again in the future. So thanks so much for making my parents feel so special last week, Marian and David.

We spent three nights at this fantastic B&B that is in a great location for Kenmare. It's only a 5min walk to the centre of town but is in a very quiet lane. Rooms, breakfasts and owners were superb and I cannot thank them enough for their hospitality. It was the perfect base for touring the South West of Ireland. We will be back!

Rockcrest House is a beautiful B & B a very short distance from the city center of Kenmare. The rooms are spatious, newly remodeled & beautiful. The hosts are very lovely & helpful. We would not hesitate to stay at rockcrest house if we return to kenmare.

Excellent service by David and Marian. Short walking distance to the town. Very spacious in the room. We arrived the B&B quite late and David contact us checking if we will come by. very polite. There is nothing to fault about.
