A snapshot of the rural side of Ireland! Jimmy lives the Irish experience from his homemade soda bread, scones and pastries to his homespun humour. Hard to beat his Irish breakfast and the rooms are big and the views of Mount Brandon breathtaking. Add in the twice daily parade of cows along the road in front and it has all... More

Absolutely lovely bed and breakfast in the countryside outside of Dingle. The rooms are spacious, elegantly decorated, very clean and new. Jim and Noreen are wonderful hosts and very helpful in planning day trips around the peninsula. Also the breakfast in the morning is excellent (eggs, waffles, pancakes, fruit, and granola are all options). Highly recommend!

We were worried when we first came out that we were in the middle of nowhere.. turned out to be the best thing for us! Jimmy was so incredibly kind and went well out of his way to make us comfortable.. we felt immediately at home. the room was spotless with a beautiful view of the mountain. Our breakfast was...

I cannot say enough nice things about this B&B, Jimmy and Noreen. My boyfriend and I arrived in the evening. Jimmy ran from his dinner with friends and gave us some of his delicious scones and muffins and a pot of tea. (We had needed to let him know we were running an hour late because of our underestimating of... More

My visit to Ireland was my first trip across the pond and it's one I will never forget thanks to my time in Dingle. Most of the credit can be given to our host, Jimmy. Jimmy is a pastries chief and grows everything he serves so the food is nice and fresh every morning. The house itself is well kept... More

Jimmy and Noreen have made a special effort to make their B&B stand out - and it does. The setting is a picturesque farmhouse about 10 min north of Dingle town (to get there put your Garmin away! - just drive north past Dingle Distillery). The home is new and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with Bailey's Irish Cream over porridge... More

I emailed in advance to say that I'm Celiac, and sure enough, there were gluten-free muffins waiting for me on arrival. There is no place like Ireland. No place like Ireland! Coill An Rois is a charming property just a short drive/ride away from Dingle town. Remote. Tranquil. Quiet. Serene. Absolutely lovely hosts. Jimmy gave me all of his gluten-free... More

Coill An Rois was exactly what we were looking for in a B&B and more. Jimmy and Noreen are both such friendly and kind people; we felt incredibly welcome. We came in late our first night, which not only was Jimmy extremely accommodating about, but when we mentioned we weren't sure what to see the next day, he invited us... More

I can't say enough good things about our stay here. My friends and I just adore Jimmy. He went above and beyond. I got very sick with a sinus cold, and while my friends all went into town for dinner, I hung back to rest and recover. Jimmy made me chamomile tea and gave me some awesome holistic stuff to...

Coil An Rois is exactly what a B&B should be; Jimmy was a gracious, helpful, informative and hospitable host. Tea along with homemade muffins and cookies were served when we arrived and Jimmy described each bar and restaurant in Dingle. The house is clean, comfortable, and could not be in a more beautiful location. Breakfast was delicious. If you're going... More
