This is our third year in a row visiting Gregan's for dinner. We enjoyed the tasting menu. The food is impeccably prepared and artistically presented. Really the best. The service was a bit off during this year's visit. Not sure what happened, but servers were not very attentive and a bit snooty. Hopefully just a blip this year.

Our Junior Suite was very large and pleasant, with a separate sitting room and a door to a small private garden. The hotel has no air conditioning, but the numerous windows gave us good ventilation in May. The hotel's pub style bar is very nice, and a pleasant place to chat with the staff and other guests. We ate in... More

This hotel is everything you would expect from a castle hotel. Wonderful service, perfect location, very comfortable rooms and an outstanding dinner. Unfortunately we only stayed one night but should have stayed longer. The hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful. The room we had was recently refurbished and spacious. The a la carte dinner menue was really creative, tasty... More

Large rooms, beautifully furnished, private view of garden, very quiet, lovely drawing room and bar, both well furnished with good books and well chosen paintings and furniture, attentive staff.......I can't wait to return. Gregans is special. Set in outstanding natural landscape, and with lovely garden, and pet friendly, it was everything we would have wished for. Breakfasts are luxurious and... More

We stayed here in March and loved it. We stayed in the Galway Bay suite and it was one of the nicest hotel rooms I've stayed in. It had an enormous bedroom, a small sitting room and a good size bathroom. Everything was really nicely done and the bed was huge and comfortable. The view was lovely. We had breakfast... More

This is the first time we have stayed at Gregans for several years and we were delighted to find it as good, if not better, than before. In the past we have stayed in the Galway Bay Suite but as that was not available we opted for the Capenwalla Suite and were not disappointed. A lovely big room, beautiful views... More

Unlike the other Ireland Blue Book properties we’ve stayed in, this one seemed in the business largely to make money. Room décor is soulless, food portions are small, prices are high and management, while “correct,” do not come across as caring. Plus a miscommunication about when children would be present at dinner was badly handled. We were told children would... More

Spent 2 nights at Gregan's recently, and found it to be as lovely and relaxing as we did on our first visit over 4 years ago. Our room was very comfortable, and we enjoyed relaxing there and in the "public" areas downstairs. The Corkscrew bar is a lovely spot to sip Irish Whiskey by the fire. We had a fantastic... More

Gregans Castle is a charming country house hotel, set in the Burren and complete with charming gardens. The eclectic decor (pale green walls with purple carpets and furnishings) adds to the charm. Our lodging was huge, with views on all three sides. The separate little sitting room off the bedroom was so comfortable (and provided a place to sit and... More

This unique old manor house is beautiful. It is located on the edge of the Burren and the views are amazing. The surrounding gardens are worth a walk. The rooms are country-chic, large and nicely appointed. This is the place to be if you are looking for quiet - the nights are silent. We did have a noisy radiator that... More
