The Afternoon Tea was so good here, its the only place I've come back for it again. The lounge area by the bar is a stunning setting for afternoon tea (try get the couch in front of the window). We were treated like Kings with the finest of treats, sandwiches and coffee. Highly recommend this for afternoon tea

I loved this place! It was just the sort of experience I really wanted to have in Ireland. There was a peat fire burning in every fireplace. We were upgraded to a bigger nicer room without even asking right when we arrived. This place is the sort of country house that has been added onto over time so there are... More

This is a beautiful property and the service is impeccable. I first went here for a 12 course tasting menu in 2011. I have been back a number of times since and only wish that I could visit more often. Everything is thought of. Be sure to visit this amazing hotel and restaurant soon- you will not be disappointed.

We didn't stay here,but simply dropped by for drinks. Far from the coast and nearby village. Nicely appointed, but distinct damp smell in the corridor.ordered wine and coffee. 12euro total. Bar staff also tending reception and doing the porter jobs. Wine vile. No staff present for me to exchange for some other drink. Made comment to my husband that, for... More

We had a great experience here. The rooms are cosy and spacious. Some will complain about the lack of TV in the room but we believe this added to the country house experience. Dinner in the bar was an absolute delight. The risotto was excellent. Peat fires and smooth and engaging service added to the experience. A great breakfast to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our three-night stay at Gregans over the October half-term school holidays. This was our first time in the west of Ireland and Gregans made the perfect base for exploring the Burren. After days spent exploring, it was lovely to come back to the relaxation of the hotel, the smell of the peat fires and a drink at... More

We stayed for one night in the “Laurel” room in Gregan’s castle. This hotel is beautifully nestled in the Burren looking out over Galway bay. Our room was spacious and decorated elegantly, with a comfortable four poster bed but it was let down by a number of small issues. It took an age to get hot water. I filled up... More

We booked for two nights with one Dinner,and it was truly a wonderful experience. Gregan's is located 5kms from the village of Ballyvaughan, in Co Clare on the "Wild Atlantic Way" in the west of Ireland. It is a luxury hotel on its own grounds with about 20 rooms. All rooms are unique, and range from "standard" to "suites". It... More

First of all I'd like to mention the manager, Ken. From the moment we arrived tired from travelling, Ken was there to help. He gives a homely welcome, but balances it beautifully, at all times watching and supervising. Surrounded by the amazing Burren landscape, it's an ideal spot for walking, romantic breaks, or in our case a small family wedding.... More

Had the occasion to have the six course dinner in this hotel last weekend. It was superb. Excellent food with a beautiful presentation that is way above a standard you would receive in any other restaurant. Staff were very well trained in customer service and had a very good knowledge of all food types, content and special diet requirements, especially... More
