We loved our stay at Rockcrest House! David and Marian made us feel so comfortable in their home. Not all B&B's are as welcoming and professionally run as this one. Breakfast was cooked to order, fresh, and delicious. Our room was in the front of the house with a very large picture window overlooking the beautiful countryside. Most importantly, it...

We arrived in Kenmare mid-afternoon after flying over from the UK to Cork and travelling around a bit. Kenmare itself is a beautiful little town, and Rockcrest is a perfect place to stay. We were welcomed at the door by Marian, who showed us to our clean, spacious and luxurious rooms. Ensuite bathrooms (with hairdryers) were provided. Marian advised us...

Our two week family adventure throughout Ireland included many delightful experiences.

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...
