Jimmy was great. We lost our way and passed the turnoff for the house and had to be collected from the pub. Jimmy came to the pub and directed us to the B+B. The accommodations were so comfortable, clean and thoughtfully arranged. The food was wonderful. We were able to spend time talking with Jimmy and his great friend,Garrett. Jimmy... More

This was our second visit to Dingle peninsula and without any hesitation we chose to stay at Jimmy and Noreen's B&B again. Coill an Rois is surrounded by farms and splendid scenery overlooking Mount Brandon. It is located within easy reach from Dingle town. But the main factor for choosing this place is its wonderful hosts who make you feel... More

Forest of the Roses B&B was mine and my boyfriends favorite B&B of our trip. We only got a chance to stay one night, but it was fantastic. Jimmy and his wife are true warm and hospitable people. We were offered tea and cookies upon arrival, given some helpful visiting information and a clean room with a very comfortable bed.... More

This countryside B&B is surrounded by fields and farms. I cannot imagine a warmer welcome after a long trip across the Atlantic. Jimmy and Noreen are the world's most welcoming hosts. I recommend Forest of the Roses as a first stop for any traveler visiting the west of Ireland. Jimmy prepared glutin free treats for our celiac traveler, and we... More

Our family had the BEST experience here of our entire trip! Jimmy is an amazing host. He made us feel so at home, yet at the same time, provided 5 star service throughout our stay. Our children (ages 4 and 2) were welcomed by both Jimmy and Noreen and enjoyed "helping" them in the kitchen or getting set up with... More

I returned to Forest of the Roses for the 6th time last month and every time I arrive I remember why I come here in the first place, the B&B is run consistently with the customer in mind, Jimmy does the best job of anyone I know to make you feel comfortable and welcome, his breakfast is the most diverse...

Read the reviews, it's all been said before. Jimmy has the finest B&B facility on the peninsula and the reviews show it. We have stayed in many B&B's, and this one is tops. Jimmy is a gracious and accommodating host. He is a wealth of information on Ireland in general and the Dingle in particular. The facility is spotless and... More

Coill An Rois is a truly wonderful place to stay. It has a great location and Jimmy is a perfect host who made is feel at home from the moment we walked through the door. This was by far the best B&B my sister and I stayed in while hiking the Dingle Way. Jimmy cooks a delicious breakfast and is... More

If there is perfection in B and B's, Forest of the Roses certainly comes close. The basics are excellent - bright airy room, good sized en suite with a really good shower. But it is the welcome that makes it really special. Jimmy and Noreen were thoroughly professional but also made us feel like old friends. Six of us stayed... More
