B&B Reviews
Algret house is a great room for a stay in Killarney. All rooms are ensuited. The rooms and the bathrooms look great, new and are very clean. The breakfast had a large variety - cereals, fruits, joghurt served on a table in the dining room and in addition we could order fresh made eggs, waffles and porridge. Greta does everything to make her guests feel comfortable. She is very friendly and caring and tries to make everything possible. The Algret House is not in the city centre but it is just a ten minute walk which makes it perfect when you travel with a car and don't want to drive into the city. The parking lot is in front of the house and free for guests. Greta also had good recommandations for food in the city so just ask her. FYI: Greta prefers paying in cash if possible.

We had a very brief, yet wonderful stay with Greta. The house was very clean and comfortable. Our family room with three beds was the perfect size and the bathroom was great. The breakfast in the morning tasted amazing, the best breakfast we had while visiting Ireland. The location to town was just a short 10 minute walk, so it was in a great location. Greta was very kind, and I would certainly look to stay here should I find myself in Killarney again.

Algret House was cosy, clean and close to town. I received a warm welcome and had everything I needed for a weekend of climbing in the Gap of Dunloe. I was able to air and dry equipment in a utility room behind the house and had a fridge in a common area for prepared food. In the room I had a hot water 24hrs, a very comfortable bed and many, many TV channels. Every morning at 8am I arrived down for breakfast and was greeted with everything I could want and served quickly with a hot breakfast and left with my flask full of hot water for the day. This is a great B&B in a great location. 2 minute walk from the town centre.

I could not have asked for more. I had to change my day of arrival at very short notice and Greta was so obliging. Her welcome on arrival was the highlight of my visit to Killarney. Such a charming lady and such a delightful hotel. Clean, warm, a home from home. I would go back anytime. Read the comments in her visitors book and you will see how many people share my opinion. Thank you Greta - hope I may visit again. Keith

Eve - Canada (June, 2015)
The house is well located in a quiet residential neighborhood. It's a short 5-8 minutes walk to town. Greta Doyle the hostess is very friendly and outgoing and helpful. We found the breakfast to be good and basic. Only the dry cereals are buffet. Everything else is cooked to order by her husband Al. The rooms were obviously the result of a renovation of an existing house. Our room was clean and neat but a little cramped. There was really no place to sit in the room and comfortably read. You needed to go downstairs for that. One thing that Greta should have warned us about was not to drink the water from the faucets in the upstairs rooms as it comes from tanks and not directly from the City water system. But Greta would happily fill water bottles downstairs if requested. We would stay there again.

Not only is the Algret House spotless clean and well maintained, but also will guests find Greta to be extremely welcoming and caring. Always in the mood for a little chat, she will most gladly assist you with your travel needs. The two of us stayed for four nights at the Algret House and really liked our room. Make it down on time for breakfast so you don't miss the fresh juice, homemade scones, fruit, cereal & milk, and your choice of a warm breakfast. Make sure to call Greta directly or e-mail through her website and ask for her preferred means of payment in order to support this Killarney gem!

We were so happy to finally get to Algret House B&B after a long day of travel from the US. We arrived around 1 pm, and Greta had our room ready - we were thrilled. The location is great - close enough to town to easily walk, but far enough away that you don't hear all the noise. The only downside was that we were in room 10, on the ground floor near the breakfast room. So we could hear whenever guests came in the front door late at night and when everyone came down for breakfast in the morning. Not a huge issue, but something to keep in mind. The bathroom was quite small not uncommon in European B&B's, but was nice. Overall we had a great stay and Greta happily recommended a tour and arranged it with a local tour company on our first day. I highly recommend Algret House!

We enjoyed a most warm and welcome stay with Greta and Alf. Lovely people, friendly and attentive to your every need. The house was beautifully clean, bedroom big enough to spread ourselves, with nice clean bedding and lovely white towels. Breakfasts perfect, you could enjoy anything from cereals to full Irish, with scones, of course home made and beautiful. Greta supplied all necessary information to enable you to get the most from your stay in Killarney. Within easy walking distance from the town, exactly the right position and very quiet too. When we visit again we will definitely look here again for accommodation.

This is our third time staying at this B&B and we love it. Our hostess, Greta is the best she welcomes us when we arrive and shows us to our rooms. The rooms are well appointed, perhaps there could be more drawers for clothes, but that's a small problem. Breakfasts are delicious and there are plenty of choices. Greta is happy to accommodate any breakfast request within reason. She provides freshly baked scones each morning as a little extra. Greta is always willing to suggest day trips in the area and of course she also recommends good restaurants for dinner. We have tried each one she has recommended and they were all very good. If I have the chance to come back to the Killarney area I would definitely chose Algret House.

Our family spent three nights at Algret House in two rooms and both rooms were very satisfactory, clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. Greta was a perfect hostess. The beds were comfortable; the breakfasts excellent and Greta had lots of information for us. We had a car and there was suitable parking at the house. We walked downtown easily for meals and being tourists. Greta arranged a tour of the Ring of Kerry for us on one of the days giving my husband a break from driving for a day. We visited Killarney National Park and the Muckross House and Farms on another day. It's a lovely B&B in a beautiful area. I highly recommend it.

Staying at Algret House is always a highlight of my trips to Ireland. I traveled to Ireland in October of 2011, 2012 and 2013 and this is the only B&B I returned to every time -- because of Greta Doyle. She is a gem. Funny, kind, refreshing and everything you could ask for in a host. And her husband, Alf, although behind the scenes, is a gem, too. This B&B makes you feel like you are home. The rooms are comfortable -- and immaculate. Roomy, cozy and sparkling clean. And one must always remember the breakfasts. The delicious breakfasts. The porridge is made with extra special love. I have come to feel that I cannot imagine an October without Greta Doyle in it.

I visited Algret House in June 2013 and stayed for 3 nights. The room was a good size, clean and was very comfortable. The bathroom was also very clean and well appointed. Breakfast was excellent with many options whcih was great for a multi-day stay. An example of just how accommodating Algret House is was my first morning breakfast. I asked for flavored yogurt, and was apologetically told all they had was plain, but she could bring me some honey to sweeten it. I was perfectly fine with that, but the next morning there was vanilla yogurt for me. Greta took the time to go to the store and bring in flavored yogurt for me! I was very touched that she would do that. This is the kind of service you will get at Algret. As for location, the B&B is within easy walking distance of Killarney town, but it is down a quiet street. You will not regret staying here and I look forward to coming back.

Greta runs and excellent B&B and was a superb hostess. She has the best oatmeal we have ever had!!! She offered great advice on attractions and regarding the local town centre, which was an easy walk from the B&B. The only shortcoming was an absence of hooks or towel racks, which would have been helpful for a family of four. We would definitely recommend others to stay here.

We spent three nights at Algret House and had a wonderful experience. Greta took care of our every need and made us feel very much at home. She made arrangements for a cab to take us out to Muckross House and was willing to do much more for us if we had the need. We found the breakfasts to be very well prepared and appreciated the variety of offerings. Algret House is very well maintained, clean and comfortable. It is in a residential area which is quiet at night but within an easy walking distance to downtown attractions and Killarney National Park. We arrived in Killarney by bus after traveling 24 hours from Oregon and we had no problem walking to Algret House from the bus station. We would highly recommend Algret House to family and friends should they decide to visit Killarney.

Connie Monahan - United States (October, 2012)
We stayed 3 nights at Algret House. It was a ten minute walk to downtown Killarney and in a quiet residential neighborhood. We had no car so we used taxi's to and from the train station could have probably walked this but we aren't as young as we used to be and Muckross House, all arrangements were made by our hostess. She even made the arrangements for the Ring of Kerry tour and they picked us up and dropped us off at the door of Algret House. The house was immaculate, the breakfasts were cooked to order off of their menu and got us off to a good start each day. There were 4 of us traveling and we had two rooms. If there was anything to "complain" about, it was the small shower in one of the bathrooms, but other than that I would recommend this B & B. Oh, by the way, she also gave us advice on which places to eat and all 3 were very good.
