This B&B was grand. Jimmy is a wonderful host and chef. Breakfasts were a real treat and he even taught me to make scones including his wonderful recipe. His recommendations for eating were spot on and his help with touring tips were greatly appreciated. Its location was great as it was out in the country with sheep and cows across... More

Spend a night there and we really enjoyed it. Our host, warm and friendly, welcomed ous with tea, coffee and homemade scones with superb marmelade (also homemade). A very nice introduction including a perfect suggestion for Dinner. The rooms nicely decorated and well equipped giving a nice view over the surrounding hills. This is a B&B I absolutely can suggest... More

Warning...if you walk the Dingle Way clockwise, this B&B adds on a little distance since it is through some of the other small towns with accommodations. BUT IT IS WORTH IT! First, it is ON the trail and any mile we got done that day was one less before scaling Mount Brandon the next! Also, the shower and bed was... More

We knew this place would be a winner when we walked in and were greeted with "tea or coffee?" Jimmy was incredibly accommodating and made us feel as though we were the guests of honor. The B&B is great as a whole, with a very homey feel overall and situated just a short distance from town. However, I would go... More

Jimmie and Noreen were brilliant hosts. Their friendliness made our stay . Noreen gave us a lift to and home from the pub for our evening meal and even took us to see Brandon creek. They gave a great breakfast and packed us off with scones and biscuits for the hike over to Cloghane.

Coill An Rois is a absolute gem. Located in the beautiful country side about 10km from Dingle. We have stayed in a lot of b and bs and this has to be the best one. Comfy beds, excellent shower pressure, and amazing food. What ultimately makes Coill An Rois special is the host Jimmy, who is just wonderful. Absolutely top... More

Jimmy has quite the knack for making you feel like family. We had our choice of rooms and they were all clean and lovely. He acted as our tour guide with helpful tips for sights and live music. My husband wanted Jimmy to be our chef for the rest of the trip his scrambled eggs with salmon were so delicious!... More

Our host and the owner, Jimmy made this stay exceptional! We was warm and welcoming and went out of his way to make or stay delightful... His cooking was superb and the accommodations very comfortable. Driving to his home and into Dingle is worth a trip in and of itself... Just breathtaking! So glad we stayed at Coill An Rois-...

Anytime I visit Dingle, I make sure to stay with Jimmy at Coil An Rois. His B&B is without doubt one of the best in Ireland. The idyllic location nestled at the foot of mount Brandon and the warm welcoming atmosphere makes Jimmy's place so special. I highly recommend Coill An Rois to anyone who intend visiting the Dingle peninsula.... More

This was one of our most enjoyable stays on our trip to Ireland. Jimmy is a wonderful host; incredible knowledge of the area, and understanding of what works for tourists. Very pleasant guy, wonderful sense of humor, knack for making you comfortable. If you don't have a car, this might not work for you, as it is seven miles out... More
