Arrived at Algret House with no trouble and Greta cheerfully checked us in and talked our ears off. She was a font of information so it was time well spent. She recommended restaurants and gave us directions for the 10-minute walk downtown. We eventually ate at two of her recommended restaurants and loved both.
The room was clean and comfortable and our daughter's room was equally satisfactory. Greta was wonderful. She managed breakfast with great aplomb giving everyone advice and directions and managing to serve at the same time. They offer an excellent choice at breakfast.
Unique Quality: Greta gave us directions to the Killarney National Park and we had a wonderful day there. The next day she arranged for us to go on a bus tour around the Ring of Kerry so my husband got a break from driving for a day. They pick you up right at the B&B and will return you there although we decided to walk back since we'd been on the bus most of the day.
Algret House is just like staying with relatives you like. Greta was there for questions and disappeared when not needed. The B&B is spectacularly located since you can walk right downtown in 10 minutes or less. It has the advantage of being very near the downtown but very quiet at night which we appreciated.
Unfortunately I didn't take any photos of the B&B so please check the web site for lovely and very accurate photos.
