My husband, myself and our daughter stayed at Alget house for one night recently while we were touring Ireland on holiday. While the house was spotlessly clean, there was no personal warmth at this B & B. The location is not really in easy walking distance of town center but the fringes of town. We had requested a twin room and a double room. The beds were hard and not level, the pillows flat and like rocks, plus in the twin room we were expecting to have two beds side by side. However, the beds were separated by a dividing wall; we felt rather isolated from each other and only one bed had a view of the TV. Plus, one bed was a double and the other 'twin' bed was a child's bed for second bed when a twin room was requested. This room was a family room - not a twin room. The shower water temperature fluctuated dreadfully and the rooms are not soundproof as noise can be heard through the walls - I heard the neighbor snoring most of the night. At breakfast, nothing was homemade but the scones. The jam is in a convenience container, the maple syrup was corn syrup with maple flavor, boxed juice and slow coffee service. On the plus side, the bacon was very good, the rooms were clean and credit cards are accepted. There was no real personality to the place and I find it difficult to understand the quality of the reviews I read on this site when one compares the ambiance and warmth experienced in all the other B & B's we visited in Ireland. Sorry, but it was definitely not for us.
