I chose this B&B for its location and value and was not disappointed. While it's slightly outside of the town central, it's only a five minute very pleasant walk to the center of the town. It's also very close to the stone circle on the outskirts of the town. We had a spacious room (#4) on the ground floor with...

This place was awesome. The 5 minute walk to town was pleasant and convenient. As the same time you felt you were in the country. The 4 of us stayed in 2 rooms (2 adults and 2 teenagers). The house was immaculate. David and Marian were such welcoming hosts. Upon arrival David immediately provided recommendations on places to eat and...

This is a great B&B just out of Kenmare, a short walk to town along a pretty river. Hosts David & Marian are very efficient & helpful. We had a large room with a large bay window looking toward the mountain. Never tired of looking out the window! Fantastic breakfasts, beautiful parlor, lovely rock garden in front. Ask for room...

It was the right B&B, a beautiful, quiet location with stunning views from our room and only a 3-minute walk to the Town Centre of Kenmare. The room was clean and spacious, with a...

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....

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...

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.
