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

Simply put, our stay at Coill An Rois was perfect. The location and views are spectacular, the rooms are beautiful and comfortable, the food is delicious and, above all else, Jimmy and his wife, Noreen, are excellent and kind hosts. They always greeted us with a smile, were always attentive to our needs (and whims), and truly made us feel... More

Whilst the location of this gem may a little remote, the same cannot be said of it's owner, Jimmy Bruic. From the moment we arrived we were treated like long lost family, even to the point where Jimmy insisted on preparing a a hot lemon/honey/whisky to ease my wife's cold...true hospitality. Jimmy is a chef who spent years working in... More

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
