The thing that struck me most about Rockcrest House was that although you feel like you are in the country when you look out your room window, you are only 3-4 minute walk to the center of town. You have the best of both worlds. Marion welcomed us to the house and quickly led us to our lovely, spacious room.... More

Rockcrest house was a really lovely place to stay. Great hospitality and great location. It was only a 5min walk to the centre of Kenmare. We stayed in room 4 which had a wonderful view and was very spacious. Very comfy bed and a tasty breakfast. Will definitely be back.

My boyfriend and I stayed in Rockcrest house for one night in May. We were attending a wedding in the area. We arrived to the guesthouse soon after midday to a warm welcome. Even though our room was not ready, (this was not an issue for us) we were able to use the room to get ready for the wedding... More

This was the first B&B that we stayed at on our trip to Ireland. The rooms are very clean. The friendliest service in town for sure. The house is set up on a hill with beautiful landscaping out front. The breakfast we delicious and more than enough to fill you up. Would highly recommend Rockcrest house.

We stayed in this very nice and clean B&B. The room was very spacious and looked newly renovated. Even the bed was new, we slept like on clouds. The bathroom was luxurious, we even had a bathtub. The hosts were very friendly, we were warmly welcomed and even got a lift to the bus station in the morning.

We spent two nights here with our kids in a family room. The room was spacious enough for the four of us. It was very clean and comfortable. Marian and David were great to us - they brought us coffee and snacks when we first arrived. Breakfast was great each morning. It is about a 5-10 minute walk to town.... More

What an amazing stay! The house is simply gorgeous - especially the garden. Our room looked out over a green hillside with the occasional sheep in the foreground! Marian & David were beyond welcoming - a great resource for restaurants and routes for our day trips. We thought Kenmare would be a convenient home base for drives to Dingle and... More

The elegant but homey Rockcrest House was one of the best B&BS that my husband and I have visited and is located on a quiet, country road but only a nice short walk from beautiful Kenmare with nice shops and restaurants and pubs with music. Marian and David were very accommodating and offered good suggestions to our many questions. We... More

This was our jumping off point for Kerry and the surrounding area. Kenmare is conveniently located near both the Beara and Kerry peninsulas. The Rockcrest house is a short walk from beautiful Kenmare. Marian and David were nice, very accommodating and helpful with suggestion and local information. The full Irish breakfast was FULL! We would definitely stay there again!
