We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at this friendly B&B. Greta was the perfect host, she has a very nice personality. She made sure that we were comfortable and that we had everything we needed. She gave us useful information about the city and the surrounding. She was very attentive with my girlfriend who is pregnant and asked questions... More

The Algret House was recommended to us by friends who had stayed there is May of 2014. Greta was so nice, so helpful - has a great personality!! Plenty of parking, awesome breakfast. Just a short walk to the center of Killarney for pubs and restaurants. We would not hesitate to recommend Algret House!!!

The B&B is in a quiet street with only a 10 minute walk into a huge number of hotels and restaurants in town. We had a car and there was ample parking spaces in the front of the house. GRETA was a very friendly host who gave us advice on what to see and where to eat. The room we... More

I was very pleased when offered a downstairs room because I find it difficult to use stairs. The room was large and at the front of the house. It was not possible to leave the curtains open because people arriving could see in the windows. Greta was an obliging and cheerful hostess and gave us very useful advice regarding travel.... More

Only 5 min from town centre, quiet place, absolutely spotless, Greta gave us a very friendly welcome, breakfast fab, with fresh scones, also catering for a gluten free diet . Will be back, and would recommend it to anyone.

Greta was a wonderful host and during the whole period she was making sure we had everything we needed. She provided a map and touristic advices and treated us like old friends. The room was very clean and large enough. The bed, like in most places we stayed in Ireland, was quite narrow though. Full Irish breakfast available, as well... More

The location of Algret House is ideal. About a 5-7 minute walk to the city center, and less to Killarney National Park, which is a must-see attraction. Greta was friendly and helpful, and I cannot say enough about the quality of this B&B! Beautiful light wood, clean rooms with lots of storage space, and a wonderful breakfast. I enjoyed the... More

Greta makes the best scones I've ever had. As I don't tolerate gluten very well, I probably shouldn't have eaten them, but they were so worth it (and I didn't react in any case!) She also will serve GF bread. She serves a full Irish breakfast and a couple of options, as well as the usual cereal, etc. Very nice.... More

We chose Algret House because of its location, price(85 euro/person) and the included full breakfast. Its location is close to downtown(a short walk), but on a very quiet well kept street. It was a short cab ride from the bus station, but it could've been walked if we had had less luggage. The full Irish Breakfast was very filling due... More

We spent one night here as a part of a one week tour of Ireland. Greta is a lovely person, such a pleasure. The room was comfortable and entire permises was immaculate. It is a quiet location with an easy and enjoyable 5 minute walk to the town center. The breakfast was simply fantastic.All in all a wonderful stay.
