The title sums it up. Beautiful home, beautiful location, best town in Ireland. Marian and David were the best. Very accommodating. The walk into town was enjoyable with the path over the river. Very manageable for the older set. Restaurants were magnificent. Best in Ireland. Cute town and a great location to tour the Ring of Kerry. We made the...

Marion and David are wonderful hosts, very friendly and helpful, with wonderful recommendations for local restaurants and activities. A good night's sleep in a comfortable bed, a nice hot shower, and a lovely breakfast in a charming house on a quiet lane--what more could you ask for!

Stayed here on the last leg of our Kerry Way walk, the bath was deep and the water super hot, plus the bed was very comfy. It is very close to the town centre and the rooms and front patio offer beautiful views. Great central location on the Ring of Kerry route. Many thanks Marian and David.

Lovely warm and friendly welcome from both Marian and David with fresh delivered scones. Summerville was a very spacious yet homely place to stay as a base for our weeks holiday. The rooms were clean and nicely presented. The kitchen well equipped. Kenmare town only a short stroll away with plenty of traditional nightlife, and shops. Marian wished us a...

The Rockcrest House is a charming, comfortable B&B tucked just off the beaten path but a very quick and easy walk to the bars, restaurants and shops of Kenmare. The rooms are well appointed and the breakfast is exceptional. However, what really distinguishes the Rockcrest House from all B&Bs we had stayed in previously was the warmth and hospitality of...

This B&B was the best we stayed at in Ireland. We were immediately greeted and offered tea and coffee to enjoy in the sun room. The rooms were beautiful and clean with amazing views. The made to order breakfast was fantastic.

Very spacious room on the ground floor. Lovely hosts, very caring and welcoming. This B and B is up a lovely winding road, an easy walk to the centre of the town, Cromwells bridge is even on this lane. Only problem we had was with the wifi, but they had a lovely sitting room that it worked well in. My...

This was a return visit to Rockcrest House 15 years after the first time. We were not disappointed, it was just as fabulous as we had remembered. Our hosts, David and Marian, were so hospitable and always prepared to go that little bit extra. The location is quiet but yet only a five minute walk to the centre of Kenmare...

My husband and I stayed two nights at Rockcrest House during our honeymoon in Ireland, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience at this delightful B&B. We explored the magnificent Killarney National Park during the day, and wandered the fun little village of Kenmare by night, where we lucked out with an evening of fabulous music by Michael...
