My husband and I can't figure out why this is called Gregans Castle when it looks more like a country house, but we did not care...it was lovely. The Burren is not to be missed, but arriving at Gregans should not be missed either. The place is truly beautiful, in a spectacular setting. We checked into our lovely room and... More

We stayed at Gregans Castle for a much anticipated 4-night stay as part of a West of Ireland holiday. We were travelling 'en famille', i.e., with our dogs and were delighted that they would be welcomed at Gregans along with us. Gregans has a limited number of suites with direct access to the gardens which is ideal for those who... More

Gregans is probably the best property I have been to in the UK and Ireland during my last 20 days of being on the road. To begin with, the staff has been really warm and welcoming, the rooms are gorgeous and spacious, the food is just outstanding and the property is just picture perfect. We couldn't have stumbled upon a... More

Gragans is everything you want for a country house retreat: it's quiet, calm and friendly; it's set in a gorgeous valley in the Burren; the food is excellent and the rooms are comfortable. In addition, it's a perfect center to explore the amazing Burren and Ireland's Atlantic Coast.

I went in this hotel for two nights. Really what you expect in your immagination when you think about Ireland. Beauiful countryside, warm and friendly people, peace of mind and silence. The Hotel is in a very quite location surrounded by the magnificet Irish countryside. Inside: Fireplace, beautiful fornitures and tapestry are making you feel warm and pampered even better... More

To arrive at Gregans Castle you are at once immersed in a sense of tranquility. The surroundings are exquisite, with superb views of the Burren. The hotel garden is lush with delightful herbacious borders. The welcome from the staff was warm and welcoming, and all the staff were wonderful, nothing too much trouble (even moving furniture!). Our room was spotless... More

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
