Our two week family adventure throughout Ireland included many delightful experiences. The warm hospitality, beautiful grounds, spacious comfortable rooms and tasty breakfast at Rockcrest House, not to mention it's ideal location in Kenmare, made this the best B&B experience of our entire Ireland trip. My family gives Rockcrest House our highest recommendations. Top quality and tasteful furnishings, from the large...

We had been in Sheen Falls the previous two nights for a close friends wedding and we decided to stay a 3rd night to attend the after party in Kenmore. I had booked 2 rooms as my parents were with us and when we arrived we were told we had a house all to ourselves! It's just a few steps...

I stayed at Rockcrest House when I visited for a local fiddle course. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I have several food sensitivities and they were very understanding about this. They allowed me time to practice in the salon and also gave me my space when I snuck back to my room to nap on a few occasions....

We stayed at Rockcrest House for 3 nights during our honeymoon in Oct 2016. Our room was clean and quiet and the bed was comfortable. David was very welcoming and offered us tea and biscuits upon arrival. He also gave us restaurant suggestions. The location is perfect- close enough to town to walk, but far enough away to be quiet...

We only stayed at Rockcrest House for one night but we really loved it. David was great - he served us tea and toast even though we slept in too late to get the full breakfast (due to jet lag)! He was also fine with us checking in late the night before. He gave us great recommendations for dinner and...

Although it is over a year since we visited Ireland, Marion and David stand out as the best hosts of any B+B we've ever used. They were incredibly hospitable, offering their fine crystal and living room for our before dinner drinks, and they provided the appies. On arrival, David made us tea and biscuits after our long day of travel....

Very nice B&B. Beautiful grounds. Large room (#7) for a B&B. Breakfast was good. Walking distance to town, but it is uphill coming back from town, so be ready for that. Owners were polite, but not overly friendly.
