Gregans was a stop midway on our trip. We were so happy when we drove up to see this lovely setting. While we stayed we were treated like royalty. We enjoyed the common areas both inside and outside. Tea in the garden was wonderful.

If you are looking for a private getaway in the beautiful Burren with scenic views across sweeping landscapes, then this is the place for you. We arrived in the late afternoon on a cold day and immediately felt at home as soon as we walked across the beautifully kept lawns into the warm reception. Our room was cosy and comfortable... More

The food in Gregans Castle is unbelieveable. Its the best food I have ever tasted. If you stay in the hotel, and this is an experience as well as the rooms are beautiful then you will be treated to the most amazing breakfast. Can i recommend the pancakes, eggs benedict and the traditional. If you have dinner, you will be... More

Located about 10 minutes from Ballyvaughan, this is one of the better-maintained old Houses/Castles I’ve stayed in, well-groomed grounds, no sign of ware and tear on the building. The inside is equally spick-and-span, and the welcome was warm and inviting. The rooms are clean and tidy and a decent size, with a great view of the Burren. The bar is... More

lovely old style manor house. staff are very friendly and full of suggestions as to local places to see or go. Very nice to get a drink from the bar and then go sit in the sitting room and look out across the burren or read a book and relax. Rooms are beautiful, yes its a bit pricy but you... More

We loved this quirky place. It's not a "castle" per se, more of an old manor. It had been updated...evidently sometime in the 1970's which was part of the quirky charm. Dinner was one of my top 5 meals of all time. Wish we had planned to stay longer.

Gregan's looks like the ideal country house to which your pleasantly upper-class friends [mythical] have invited you for a sociable weekend - both inside and out. The decor and furnishings are that great mix of comfort and very good taste, with plenty of old pictures, prints and good furniture pieces. But the highlight was the food, in a six-course menu...

After a day of exploring The Burren, which exceeded all our expectations, Gregans provided us with a lovely room, top quality food and a peaceful atmosphere. All in all a quality property which we thoroughly recommend if you want relaxation and a place to get away from it all. You will eat well, be captivated by the views, and plenty... More

Situated off the road to Ballyvaughn, on a curving forest lane, in a beautiful clearing of rose gardens and trees, Gregans Castle Hotel presents an experience of under-stated elegance and refinement. A beautiful manor house with a magnificent view of The Burren and Galway Bay one can easily imagine how it served as an inspiration for the likes of C.S.... More

We stayed here as the hotel opened for the season. This hotel is truly an escape from the hectic modern world. Despite necessary alterations to make it function as a hotel, it still feels like you are a guest in someone's country home. There is an aura of peace and relaxation which immediately puts you at ease. On check in,... More
