We were practically overwhelmed by the hospitality! The room was spotless and quite spacious, the breakfast was positively lavish, and served very much to order, and Greta went out of her way to help us with every request. The location is quiet (on a cul-de-sac) but just a few minutes' walk from downtown. We would book here again in a... More

We stayed 2 nights here and loved it! A very warm welcome and extra little things like a fridge provided downstairs for residents use. The room was large and comfortable. Easy and available car parking and wifi worked well. Easy walk to the town centre. Greta an Al you are fabulous hosts!

This was a wonderful place the rooms are very comfortable and you will never find a sweeter owner. She meet us at the door with a smile and in the morning she makes fresh scones. I recommend this property to anyone that is going there.

We stayed for 2 nights in Algrets House. The owner is really nice and very obliging! We had a comfortable bedroom with a nice view onto the mountains. Last but not least, the tasty breakfast every morning. We had a nice time there. And we definitely come back!

Greta's warmth & Al's great breakfasts make Algret House a keeper! The house is beautiful, everything clean to highest standards in this traditional B&B. The location of the house, in the rural suburbs of Killarney, in a former farming community, made us feel like we were in the country, but the centre of town could be reached in a 10... More

Delightful hospitality from Greta, a doting and amiable hostess. Rooms were impeccably clean, and quiet with very comfty beds. The rooms were small but had everything we needed, including coffee/tea. Convenient 5-6 minute walk to city center with plenty of pubs and dining. DELICIOUS BREAKFAST! I would stay here again on a future trip to Killarney.😀😀😀

The traditional Irish B&B is under pressure from the social media based alternatives but this is an example of how they can prosper. A beautifully furnished house, showing the woodworking skills of her husband to good effect, is run by the cheery proprietress in a relaxed but efficient manner. Everything was provided without fuss. Very comfortable bed in a spacious... More

We stopped off for only one night in Greta's B and B on our travels through Ireland. Greta is delightful and we wish we had stayed at her B and B for longer. Greta is very warm and welcoming and made us feel so very at home during our stay. We stayed in a double room with ensuite. The room... More

It was a very cold day with snow on the ground when we arrived at this wonderful B&B. Greta is an absolute "Star" and the perfect host during our two night stay she made every guest very welcome which created a great atmosphere pleasure to recommend Thanks Greta
