    Hello, I'm traveling to Kenmare in August, and am wondering if this B&B is an easy walk to town? Or is it too far out for walking to a late dinner? Thanks for any help! Debbie

    Families are always welcome at Rockcrest House and your 12 year old may like to play with our Berneese Mountain dog (still a puppy - even though she is big) - she is very playfull. Take care. David.
