We loved this place. Jimmy is so kind and a lovely story teller. When we arrived, he served homemade cookies and tea. He also made us a delicious breakfast with lots of choices. The room was really nice with a good ensuite bath, and cows literally in the back yard. Only about 12 minutes outside DIngle town along an easy...

Stayed here during a trip hiking the Dingle Way. The pink B&B was a sight for sore eyes at the end of the day and is in a beautiful rural location. Jimmy made us so comfortable immediately!! He also drove us to the nearest pub for dinner in his personal auto and picked us up afterward, as well as gave...

I cannot wait to go back - spotless room, comfortable bed and great shower. We woke up to a beautiful view from our window. Thank you Jimmy for your kindness and hospitality. Delicious breakfast too! I wish we had stayed longer for that reason alone :-)

I felt immediately at home with Jimmy and his wife, Noreen. They are wonderful hosts and take such exquisite care of you. The location is remote but close enough to Dingle Town that you can easily drive directly there or indirectly by the Slea Head Drive. It's a rural setting at the foot of Mount Brandon and close to Brandon...

Breakfast was delicious and generous (the porridge with Baileys cream and the homemade scones were amazing!). Jimmy was a great host, warm and helpful (he even gave us cookies to keep us going in...

We started our journey from Bunratty and hugged the southern coast line staying at different B & B throughout as we made our way to Dublin. I must say we fell in love with Ireland and the hospitality was stupendous at all the B & B. Forest of the roses was most memorable as Jimmy took us in like family...

We spent a week touring Ireland and staying in B&B's. This one was by far my favorite. Jimmy greater us with coffee and freshly made cookies and other treats. The warm welcoming atmosphere was just what we were looking for. Jimmy was great at answering our questions and giving us suggestions for where to eat in Dingle. The view of...
