What a fabulous inn! It is beautiful inside and out. Every detail is looked after. The best part is the dining. The dinner was outstanding. Everything was served beautifully and was so delicious. The staff was super attentive. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, anytime.

I stayed at Gregan's Castle earlier this month on a visit with my partner to show him the floral landscape of the Burren whilst in bloom. Before arriving at the hotel we visited the Burren Perfumery, which was well worth a visit, then drove to the hotel. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were struck by the beauty of the... More

Our family stayed at the hotel for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The location is perfect for viewing the Burren and the countryside and it is a nice spot to unwind after sightseeing. All three of our rooms were very nice and had comfortable beds and sitting areas. The carpets were worn in a few locations but our... More

We were very disappointed with this place. We had some problems with the wi-fi, but that was fixed on the second day. More importantly, one of my sons could not breath. I suspect it was dust. So, if you have any allergies to dust or spider mites, this is NOT the place for you. On our last day, we asked... More

Found the overall experience disappointing - spent an anniversary weekend there, last year we spent the same weekend In another 5 star hotel which was much more pleasant. Front of house staff not very welcoming, or interested in getting to know guests. Room was quite ordinary for the price, hotel lacked atmosphere, very few people in bar area & exceptionally... More

It is no surprise that this historic small hotel is a local landmark. The service, scenery, and room quality were all superb. This was easily the highlight of our trip to Ireland's west coast. This is the sort of hotel where you can go for a quiet walk in the garden, breathe in the scenery and fresh air, and simply... More

The service is constantly relaxed but very good, and the food exceptionally high. This really is hoteling and food at its highest standard. You can see all the staff have been well trained. I do not know why they do not have a Michelin star! The standards we experienced were comparable with restaurants that do have 'stars'. The rooms are... More

We stayed at Gregan's for one night after sightseeing the west coast. What a fantastic place to call home. Beautifully located, warm hospitality and a kitchen that, if you appreciate food, will rock your world. The combination of an inspired menu, local ingredients, impeccable execution, artful plating and superb service make Gregans a definite on the "must return" list. Most... More

On arrival Ben showed us to our rooms - he is the star of the show - chatty and real and not an ounce of the slightly snooty attitude that afflicted a few other staff. Dinner was delayed by half an hour (they could have phoned/texted?) but once we got settled into the bar for a nice pre-dinner drink all... More

We treated ourselves to a few nights here on honeymoon. Great hotel - beautiful, simple decor and gardens. Service was top-notch, as was the food. Calm, peaceful atmosphere with great books, nooks & crannies. Ballyvaughan is a beautiful area, with lots to see and do. Wholeheartedly recommended for a quiet break.
