Coill an Róis (Forest of the Roses) is located on the Dingle Way and at the foot of Mount Brandon. The house is in a tranquil setting, surrounded by farmland.
The Bed and Breakfast is approved by Fáilte Ireland and has been awarded three stars. There are four bedrooms in total, all of which are ensuite. In addition to this, guests have access to a shared bathroom with an 8-jet Jacuzzi. Each bedroom has a flat screen television showing the national Saorview stations.
The popularity of Coill an Róis has been founded on the quality of the food served. Having worked at Corney and Barrow in London and as a pastry chef in Harbour Lights Restaurant in Manhattan, Jimmy Bruic returned back to Kerry to set up his dream Bed and Breakfast. Jimmy is happy to share his knowledge and can give baking classes and provide recipies to guests.
With enough advance notice to buy in fresh ingredients, Jimmy can also be persuaded to cook an evening meal. This can be something light like a bowl of soup and some sandwiches or a three course meal with tea and coffee. Packed lunches can also be prepared with some notice for walkers on the Dingle Way. .
Every morning for breakfast he baked fantastic muffins and scones, and we could choose between Irish breakfast, fruits etc. His hospitality and friendlyness is really outstanding, and we can highly recommend his B&B to everyone visiting Dingle. And of course are all rooms very nice and clean. A hot spot on this Peninsula!!
