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 !

This is a clean, beautiful, comfortable B and B in a great location. A traditional Irish Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. B and B's are the way to go when traveling Ireland. They are affordable and include breakfast. We also stayed in some AirBnB's which were lovely, but the personal touch and communication with a human was definitely missing. Don't forget many of the B and B's deal in cash.

Rockcrest B and B was excellent. We were met by Marian's daughter and granddaughter, both of which made us feel very welcomed. Served excellent coffee and breakfast! Would recommend to any traveler both for work of pleasure. Marian ensured we had an exceptional stay and wished us well. Would definitely stay again...

This was a spacious, clean B & B with great hosts. Our beds were very comfortable, it was in a quiet location, and the breakfast was very good and plenty. We enjoyed seeing cows and sheep nearby, and the landscaping was lovely. We would definitely stay here again!
