We have just returned from a week's holiday in Kerry. We spent just one night on the Dingle peninsula and stayed with Jimmy at Coill an Rois but wish we could have stayed longer. The warmth of the hospitality, the level of comfort, the views and the breakfast were fantastic and could not be improved. Jimmy is very friendly and... More

I am a big traveler and have always forgotten to write reviews on tripadvisor but after staying at this place I decided to sign up just so I could write about this place. I stayed here in September 2014 with my husband and parents and had an amazing time. I felt like I was adopted into an Irish family and... More

Every piece of our experience staying with Jimmy and Noreen was truly perfect. They are gracious hosts with a beautiful home in a breathtaking location, and have mastered the art of being friendly and present at the right times, while still giving guests privacy and space to enjoy their vacation. I would fly back to Ireland just to eat another... More

We stayed at Coill and Rois B&B - Jimmy Bruic is the host - and it was as close to a perfect stay as we could have hoped for. The food is amazing, the location is serene, the host and his help are friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The area is beautiful as well. The B&B is a great jumping... More

Jimmy was an amazing host, incredibly hospitable and a fabulous cook. The options for breakfast were endless and all absolutely delicious. He even gave us some recipes which we've cooked back home!

The porridge with Baileys Irish cream is something I hope to replicate at home and the waffles were absolutely delicious. Jimmy gave us all... More

We arrived in Dingle around 7 pm, looking for a place to stay for the night. Unfortunately for us, so had about 4000 other people - it was marathon weekend, and everything in Dingle town was booked. So off we went out of town hoping to stumble upon a B & B. We drove about 15 minutes outside Dingle and... More

The best part about this B&B is Jimmy. A wonderful host. We were warmly greeted, given coffee and nibbles while we went over information about the area and what to see. The location is quite remote but is pays off in the morning when you are sitting at breakfast and watch the parade of cows from the farm next door... More

Jimmy, the owner of this B&B, was just what 4 lost and bedraggled travelers needed. He absolutely took us under his wing. When he sat us down in his beautiful bright, and clean B&B; and brought out coffee/tea and homemade cookies, we new we had stumbled upon an absolute gem. Jimmy not only told us about places to visit in... More
