If you are looking firstly for fabulous food, and then comfortable, private, scenic, friendly and overall beautiful then this is the location you are looking for! The evening taster menu was the best taster menu I have had, and also overall it was one of the best dinners I have experienced. Each dish had a taste sensation, highlights were definitely... More

We stayed with friends for six days in September. Our suite was the O'Loughlin which was incredibly bright and beautiful. We loved reading in our garden. I highly recommend asking for it you will not be disappointed. Ben and Simon were lovely and quite helpful. Definitely take a trip to the ferry to see the Cliffs of Moher and the... More

We have just returned from 6 blissful days at Gregans Castle and I cannot think of a better place to unwind at the end of our wonderful but hectic tour of Ireland. Simon, Freddie and Ken are wonderful hosts. I have read some of the other reviewers comments which I think are harsh. No the staff are not city slick... More

Had afternoon tea there recently and it was a real treat, service with a smile and so much food that we couldn't finish. A selection of sandwiches, scones and sweet things, tea and coffee. I thought the coffee was very strong although they did provide hot water to dilute it. If I was to make a recommendation I would suggest... More

We got married in Ballyvaughan last weekend, with the wedding reception at Gregans. Gregans was absolutely superb in every way. Simon, Ken and their entire team made everything perfect. The setting is idyllic, the food has to be among the best in Ireland, the service is attentive without being intrusive, and even the weather cooperated, so that we could all... More

We so enjoyed our stay at Gregans Castle and surrounding agree of Ballyvaughan. It was always a welcoming home to return to after our daily outings and adventures. If we were caught in bad weather, the staff was eager to help dry our cloths. The restaurant was superb and the staff was wonderful. We have traveled to many a wonderful... More

We came to Gregans on the recommendation of cousins one who does catering in Dublin and one who is in finance who said it was the one place in Ireland they would love to try. We are so happy they sent us here.We were greeted by Ben right away who helped us with our bags. We had booked a classic... More

I saw some surprisingly negative comments on... More

I recently stopped at this hotel with my family hoping to receive a warm welcome. The location is beautiful with lovely gardens. We arrived hoping for tea and a sandwich the time being just after three. Upon entering the hotel and enquiring politely as to whether this was possible and did they have anything gluten free as I am coeliac... More

There was nothing wrong about this place. The interior decorating is amazing, the breakfast, fantastic. The peaceful gardens and property wonderful. I have only great things to say. We stayed in the Laurel room, most wonderful.
