We arrived cold, tired and hungry and my husband and I were greeted with such Irish warmth and hospitality. We had our first meal in the bar which was casual and delicious and melted into our surroundings as we enjoyed a decadent chocolate dessert and whiskey. The following night we had a meal we will never forget; we were left... More

My wife and I stayed at Gregan's last week and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed and escorted to our upgraded suite, which was spacious, light, and beautifully and comfortably appointed. Throughout our stay, service was warm, gracious, and helpful, both in the hotel and dining room. Breakfast and dinner both were delicious, featuring top local... More

The fine dining restaurant was not open on the Tuesday so we ate in the bar. However, this did not detract from the quality... More

Firstly the setting of this hotel is glorious with wonderful views of the Burren. On arrival we were shown to our room and were stunned to find that we had... More

We drove up the coast after visiting the Aran island to stay the night here. Rooms were huge and the dinner was awesome. Take a walk around to view the landscape and the view it is beautiful. Will gladly return!

We stayed at the Castle in early October during our trip to Ireland. Gregan's castle hotel is located in the country about 10 minutes from the small town of Ballyvaughan. We arrived on Sunday afternoon. We stayed in the Fuchsia room which had a view of the meadow. The room was fantastic! It was huge, had very high, maybe 15... More

My stay at Gregans was a lovely experience. I had decided to adopt a "don't cheat yourself, treat yo self" mentality as part of my stay which certainly aided in my enjoyment. The grounds are truly beautiful, and the food was all delicious (do the 8 course tasting menu, for sure)! Another big plus was the incredible massage the hotel... More
