This was our first stop on our vacation. We definitely enjoyed the accommodations and the views were beautiful. Breakfast as with all the accommodations were delicious and an ample serving.

Rockcrest House was lovely. This was our favorite B&B that we stayed at while on our honeymoon in Ireland. The house was beautiful with amazing views and the breakfast was delicious, especially Marian’s homemade bread that she said was her mother’s recipe. The hosts were warm and welcoming and it was such a great experience. This was also the most conveniently located B&B that we stayed at. We were able to take a quick walk into town to visit restaurants, pubs, and shops. We wish we had been able to stay longer and hope to stay again someday!

We stayed in 6 different B&Bs while in Ireland, and Rockcrest House was at a whole other level than most of them. Great home, great breakfast, and we both loved the location. The walk from the house into town was a beautiful five minutes through the trees, and then dinner and fun experiences at the pubs. A really nice B&B in a really nice town. Highly recommended.

Lovely home and location to walk to nearby restaurants and pubs before heading on the Ring of Kerry drive. Wonderful breakfast and delicious brown bread. Sadly I felt the host was not welcoming to us in particular, a few times she snapped at me when asking questions while being friendly to others.

Rock Crest House is wonderful. It was probably the prettiest of all the B and B's we stayed at while in Ireland. Marian was a gracious host. (Her brown bread is to die for) Rock Crest House is perfectly situated. It's just a short walk to the center of Kenmare. The walk itself was beautiful with a little wooden bridge over a small babbling brook, a short walk along a trail and you emerge from an alleyway into down town. Marian recommended some nice restaurants in Kenmare, and we were very pleased with Davitts. Just wish that we could have stayed longer. Thank you for everything Marian. John and Ruth Halloran !
