“A wonderful stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We spent two nights in the Old Church House over the May bank holiday weekend. I cannot recommend this place highly enough! Our room was modern, clean, spacious and had a large ensuite bathroom. Helen the owner is a fantastic host who offers the highest of Irish hospitality. The area was central to the Ring of Kerry and Helen was forthcoming with the best hidden gems to visit in the area. Everything about our stay was five star and as before we could not recommend this place enough. Book this place!!! You will not regret it!

Helen and frank are very kind. We stayed here for two nights while touring the ring of Kerry. Helen was so nice to fix us afternoon tea each day. My husband especially liked the chocolate covered biscuits. Breakfast was great and we were easily accommodated for an early departure. We walked into town both nights for dinner. It was chilly, but a nice walk. We would stay here again. Thanks Helen and frank!

Though we stopped just for one night here when visiting the Ring of Kerry, we felt definitely at home with Helen and Frank.
Big spacious room, well heated( a must as weather was colder than usual for April), with coffee and tea facilities and WIFI.
Excellent and filling breakfast and enjoyable chat in the morning.
Thank you Helen and Frank from Alicia from Argentina( Hope you get to see the Pope! )

Room Tip: we stayed in a room on the ground floor facing the street, but it was very quiet and sunny

Helen was so welcoming and made our short stay in Kenmare incredibly enjoyable. The room was quiet, the bed comfortable and the breakfast delicious! Helen made us feel right at home and while the weather was dreadful the night of our stay, the morning was gorgeous and the views from her back porch and breakfast room were incredible. Downtown Kenmare is very close (we drove due to the weather) and Helen was very helpful in recommending places to check out. Everything about Oldchurch House was great and we will definitely stay here if our travels bring us back to Kenmare in the future.

After driving for hours in pouring rain we arrived at Oldchurch House. Helen and Frank welcomed us like family rather than just another group of guests. The weather was too cold and wet for a stroll into town so Helen called a taxi for us. We had a great dinner at a place she recommended then walked across the street to hear music. The cab driver gave me his phone number and when we were ready to go back I called him and he was there in a minute. The rooms were spacious and immaculate. And what can I say about breakfast, except that it was generous and excellent. Make this place your number one choice in Kenmare. Nice town, not big and touristy like Killarney. Perfectly situated on the Ring of Kerry.

Stayed one night with Helen and Frank, wish it was longer. They are wonderfully warm people who make you feel right at home. The room was great, and would I highly recommend it to anyone who is visiting Kenmare, or travelling The Ring of Kerry. By the time we left we felt like we had made a friend. I would definitely stay there again, but for longer next time.
