Myself and my wife travelled to Gregan's Castle for a quick break. The hotel itself is lovely with a very rustic, old world Irish country feel to it whilst still maintaining an air of luxury. We had our young daughter with us and we were upgraded to a family room at check in. The room was large with an extra... More

I went here with a female friend at the weekend for the Afternoon tea and it was beautiful. We were seated with a lovely view of the Burren and the gardens which on a sunny day is idyllic. The Afternoon tea started with chicken liver parfait with apple jelly, apple slices and walnuts, posh ham & cheese toasties and a... More

All I can say is that Gregans Castle was the cornerstone of the most fantastic vacation we could have ever imagined. We sought the Irish countryside - rolling green hills, rocky landscapes, winding roads - and we found it. But Gregans Castle was more than a perfect launching point for visiting landmarks such as the Burren and the Cliffs of... More

I took my wife here as a treat as w kicked off our mini staycation along the WAW. I had reviewed nice places for afternoon tea in Munster and this came up as one of the most highly recommended. Upon arrival to Gregans castle you are greeted with a fantastic view of the Burren. We were doubly blessed with such... More

Me and she booked in to Gregans for an early anniversary night out and our stay was everything we could have hoped for. The hotel is just the type of hotel I love - quiet, old world, country house type - elegant but not overly fussy and this one had oodles of charm and character. The room was a decent... More

My husband and I stayed at Gregans for two glorious nights last month, and now consider it one of our all-time favorite hotels. We would be considered a bit particular about where we stay, and I can't say enough nice things about how charming Gregans is. It's quiet and still in a way that allows for true relaxation. From the... More

Nestled off the aptly named Corkscrew Hill, Gregans is an elegant Inn that is utterly charming and luxurious. The bar area has lots of cozy tables where you can relax and read, have a lovey afternoon tea or enjoy cocktails. There is a beautiful sitting room with a fireplace as well as big bay windows facing out. This room is... More

This property was suggested by our travel agent and accepted it on blind faith. well, I have to say that no words I can write here can do it justice. More than just well appointed rooms and the kinds of things that one might find in any hotel, there is a "feel\" to this place that is hard to characterize.... More

Just had afternoon tea here today with friends and it was so different and delicious, I had to review before I forget the details! The savoury items included salmon on brown bread with pickled vegetables, goats cheese with apricot chutney, ham and cheese toasty, crab meat on squid ink crisps, and duck liver pate with brioche. There were scones and... More

This was our second time staying at Gregans Castle. From the moment we walked through the door and smelt the turf in the hallway we felt at home. Gregans is absolutely one of our favourite hotels in Ireland, if not one of the best hotels we have stayed in on our travels so far. The bar is the perfect place... More
