Reviewed June 23, 2012

This B&b was one of our best in our trip, it was super clean, very well located and the Irish breakfast was superb! The owners are very kind and friendly, they even suggested some place that we shoulg go for wonderfull pottery.
The view from our room was beautiful!!!
Thanks for everything and I wish to go again to taste the best white puding that I tasted in ireland, because it was served to us in oldchurch house!

This was our only B&B we stayed at during our vacation, what a mistake that was. We should have done B&B for our whole vacation. The innkeepers, Helen and Frank are wonderful people, they make you feel right at home. There home is very nice and has a wonderful view of the golf course. They are finishing a deck on the rear of the home that will allow guest to sit out back and view great scenery. Dont miss this B&B. I will be back to visit her again. Thanks so much

Arrived in the rain late to Old Church House..... Helen our in keeper was so lovely. We were made to feel at home, warm, comfortable, clean ..... Very nice accommodation. The next day we spent some time outlining the days activities and points of interest. Thank you Helen, we would defiantly stay with you again and would recommend Old Church House to anyone. Cheers!

Oldchurch House is situated near to the delightful town of Kenmare. A warm welcome awaits you from Helen and her husband Frank.
Their hospitality is so friendly, but also unobtrusive.
Helen makes a superb Irish breakfast, with fresh tean and coffee, and there is a wide variety of fruit, cereals and yoghurts.
The rooms are well appointed, with great views across the golf course or Oldchurch itself.
The rooms are light and spacious, and the showers are powerful and shower gel and shampoo is provided. The rooms are equipped with television, and tea and coffee making facilities.
Helen will be only to happy help you pick a restaurant and will advise you of the pubs to visit in town (after all, there are many - this is Ireland).
The accommodation is conveniently situated close to the Ring of Kerry and beautiful Kilarney National Park, as well as the Beara Peninsula.
If you want to get away from it all for a relaxing break to escape the stresses and strains of every day life, Oldchurch House is the place to be. It will be etched on your memory to remember good times in gorgeous Kenmare.
I strongly recommend Oldchurch House. You will want to go back again - and again!

Thank you Helen and Frank. We were touring the ring of kerry when we decided on the spur of the moment to spend the night in Kenmare. We had no reservations and called around noon. Helen had a room available at a reasonable rate for a b and b in Ireland. Their custom built b and b has spacious rooms that are very clean and well maintained. The breakfast area has a beautiful view through a large window facing the golf course and mountains. Helen is a very gracious host that goes out of her way to accomodate your request. It is only a few minutes from downtown Kenmare which is one of the nicest Irish towns we visited with the quaintest shops and restuarants. The must stay town for touring the ring of kerry, dingle and beara.

Room Tip: There are two rooms in the front of the house that have a great view of the old church and the river...

I live in Dublin & travel to Kenmare quite often. I have stayed with Helen on my last 4 trips and that says everything. Among the best B&B's I have stayed in. Purpose built B&B with large bedrooms and all facilites. Helen is a wonderful hostess and a mine of information on what to do locally. This is as good as a hotel. Thank you Helen

Room Tip: all rooms are good - some overlook the golf course
