Have been visiting Jimmy for several years now and we didn't think an improvement on our wonderful stays there would be possible. However, with the addition of his new wife, the charming Noreen, and the consequent revamping of the rooms our enjoyment of this place reached new heights. As mentioned in other reviews, please give Jimmy a call as he... More

Loved our two days here. Had a bit of a challenge finding the place - our GARMIN map (loaded in Canada) wasn't much help getting us to the B & B - lesson learned was we should have just stuck to the great directions! Had a great two days here - food, wonderful food from the warm scones to the... More

About 6 miles out of Dingle, nice country location. The proprietor (Jimmy) has a wealth of knowledge about the area and lots of maps to share. When we arrived we were offered tea and scones/muffins, as well as the chance to view a DVD about the area. Jimmy helped out with recommendations and made reservations for us for dinner. We'd...

We spend three wonderful nights at Jimmy's. Everything was great, the hospitality, the room, the food. Jimmy even gave me the recipe for his delicious scones. We will definitely stay there on our next trip. katleen O

Jimmy is the absolute best host in Ireland. Staring with the rooms- big fluffy beds and beautiful views is what you'll get! (Not to mention the fantastic, hot showers with extra jets.) After a long flight, it was just heaven. When you're ready, Jimmy will give you advice on where to go and what to see and has a helpful... More

My husband and I stayed at Jimmy's place for two nights during our trip around the countryside. It was by far the best B&B we have ever stayed at. It is in the most beautiful location with picturesque views on every side of the house. During our stay in Dingle, we found ourselves returning to Jimmy's around 8pm instead of... More

We received a lovely welcome from the proprietor, Jimmy. We had a pot of tea and homemade cookies. We watched a short DVD of the area and Jimmy gave us tips on where to visit during our stay and where to eat. The B&B location was very peaceful and relaxing which ensured a good nights sleep in the comfy bed.... More

We stayed at Coill an Rois three nights and it was easily the highlight of the B&B's we booked in Ireland. Jimmy is most definitely a fine chef (the breakfasts are amazing), but, more importantly, he is an excellent host because of his kind heart and warm personality. From the moment we arrived, we were invited to make ourselves at... More

In May, we stayed with Jimmy for the fourth year in a row. I'm honestly running out of superlatives to describe this B&B and its host Jimmy Bruic! We have stayed here 16 nights during the past four years and will always continue to stay whenever we are fortunate enough to visit Ireland. Jimmy is a superb cook. Breakfasts are... More

Loved our stay. Bright pink house surrounded by postcard emerald hills dotted with sheep. Jimmy greeted us with tea and great suggestions for what to see and where to go. Great location for quiet relaxation, a short 10 min drive to town. We hope to return!
