Rockcrest House Kenmare

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We have just spent four nights at Rockcrest House, and wish it could have been longer. The owners, Marion and David, went out of their way to make our stay an experience to remember. The accommodation was of the highest standard and the breakfasts were wonderful - always 'seconds' available, although we never had room for more! David was extremely helpful in terms of where to visit, not necessarily pointing us towards the obvious destinations, but also the lesser-known and often more rewarding ones. Altogether a memorable experience, which we shall hopefully repeat before too long.

The O'Dwyers are the ultimate hosts, greeting you with hot fresh scones and tea and good conversation. The accommodations are perfect - elegant, clean and comfortable. The location is a short walk from town center, the stone circle and of course, the pubs. Breakfast is an absolute picture!

When I return next year, I will book with them again and I can't recommend them highly enough.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful. Just let them know what you need. They are on a small street overlook...

My brother & our wives were traveling through ireland & finding B&B's as we went. We had good luck finding places & this was one of the best. Our room was a large suite, was clean and comfortable. The food was delicious & the B&B was conveniently located. I recommend this as a good place to stay.

We just left Ireland and a wonderful stay with David and Marion at Rockcrest House. This was our first visit to Ireland, and we wanted to spend more of our time soaking up the culture vs. moving from one B&B to the next every day. We are so happy with our choice of Rockcrest House! We had a lovely, large room with a comfortable bed and a great view. Marion's Irish breakfast beat the pants off any Irish breakfast we had in Dublin. David and Marion had great recommendations for dinner in Kenmare, and for seeing their countryside - take their advice! They were such gracious hosts, and very hospitable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and cannot give a higher recommendation than Rockcrest House. Thank you Marion and David!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rockcrest with Marian and David.
Our Bedroom and bathroom facilities were excellent as indeed was breakfast.

We were made to feel very welcome and were provided with generous information concerning places to visit as well eating establlishments in Kenmare.
We have no hesitation in recommending Rockcrest B & B and the owners Marian & David as the place to stay in Kenmare. We look forward to returning on our next visit to Ireland.

We stayed in Kenmare at the Rockcrest House in September 2013. This B & B is so beautiful with great views from the from sitting area. Our hosts and their 11month old dog that meet you when you dove in made you feel welcome the minute you set foot on their property. The rooms were large and very very comfortable and breakfast was wonderful. When we get back to Ireland we would stay there again.

Room Tip: Just show up all their rooms are excellent.

We stayed in Rockcrest House during our honeymoon. We had a fantastic stay, the rooms were great and the breakfast really good. The hosts were great and the location superb, just near the center of Kenmare. We really enjoyed our stay
