The owners can't do enough for you! Accommodations were superb, food was excellent. Definitely you need to include this in your travels! Close to town and the Ring of Kerry. Great room and clean! Breakfast was delicious.

Marion and David great hosts. We had room #3 with the separate but newly renovated bathroom. Last room available that day. Beautiful home. Small dining area but not a problem as Marion staggers the schedule to accomodate all. The breakfast was delicious especially the cheese/fruit plate. Easy to Kenmare. Will be back again

Marion and David are wonderful hosts, very friendly and helpful, with wonderful recommendations for local restaurants and activities. A good night's sleep in a comfortable bed, a nice hot shower, and a lovely breakfast in a charming house on a quiet lane--what more could you ask for!

Stayed here on the last leg of our Kerry Way walk, the bath was deep and the water super hot, plus the bed was very comfy. It is very close to the town centre and the rooms and front patio offer beautiful views. Great central location on the Ring of Kerry route. Many thanks Marian and David.

Lovely warm and friendly welcome from both Marian and David with fresh delivered scones. Summerville was a very spacious yet homely place to stay as a base for our weeks holiday. The rooms were clean and nicely presented. The kitchen well equipped. Kenmare town only a short stroll away with plenty of traditional nightlife, and shops. Marian wished us a...

The Rockcrest House is a charming, comfortable B&B tucked just off the beaten path but a very quick and easy walk to the bars, restaurants and shops of Kenmare. The rooms are well appointed and the breakfast is exceptional. However, what really distinguishes the Rockcrest House from all B&Bs we had stayed in previously was the warmth and hospitality of...

This B&B was the best we stayed at in Ireland. We were immediately greeted and offered tea and coffee to enjoy in the sun room. The rooms were beautiful and clean with amazing views. The made to order breakfast was fantastic.
