          Stayed here for one night over Easter weekend. Great location. Five minutes walk to the centre of Kenmare. Room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was only gorgeous. And fresh baked brown bread was included. Would return if in the area again.

          Hello Rockcrest House (Marian and David O'Dwyer), My wife and I are interested in reserving one of your King Double Rooms for 1 night on 20/09/2017. We're fans of Rick Steve's and use his guide books for all our travels. In his Ireland guide book its says cash only for a room. However, on your website my credit card is required to book the room. can I use the credit card to pay for the room when I arrive? Also is a King Double available on 20/09/2017 for 1 night? Bets regards, Paul & Gail Nussbaum

          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
