We have stayed here many times over the years (though I've never reviewed it before) and always found our stay highly enjoyable. I even recommended it to a niece for a short honeymoon. Peace & quiet in stunning surroundings. The rooms, especially the suites are as stunning as the burden itself. Service second to none. Gorgeous dinning room, a perfect... More

We stayed at Gregans Castle one night. To be honest, when booking our honeymoon, based on suggestions from people connected to us we wanted to stay two nights at the Dromoland Castle, but we were only able to say one night there as a "fill in" we booked a night at Gregans. Hindsight being 20/20, our stay at this place... More

We recently stayed at Gregans on our trip through Ireland. It is a cozy, well appointed guest house with a very nice clientele. The staff is well trained and attentive. They quickly learn your preferences and pay close attention to food allergies, etc. The buffet breakfast was extensive and elegant. Food at dinner was imaginative. I only wish they offered... More

Gregans Castle Hotel I just spent a week with my extended family in this jewel of a place with superb service and food. The general manager, Ken Bergin, and his team were most friendly, efficient and helpful. Ken is especially worth a mention for his tireless effort in meeting every need of our family group. This hotel is most beautifully... More

My family stayed in this hotel while visiting the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher. The hotel is situated in the middle of the Burren. The views and gardens are amazing in this boutique style hotel. You are really isolated and the surroundings are amazing. Rooms, beds and baths were very comfortable. The trip to the Cliffs were about 45... More

Looking for a "nice" hotel to stay in within an hour's drive of the Cliffs of Mohr, we found Gregans Castle Hotel. We did NOT know before we arrived there that it was a luxury hotel with amazing gourmet food. The hotel is immaculate, with old world charm and a friendly and professional staff. All food is fresh and local-... More

The Castle is a step back in time. Ken, who took care of any request, is the definition of hospitality. We had an early rental car drop off (Hertz at Shannon Airport is not a five-star), Ken had a special breakfast arranged for us. Their 'usual' breakfast was filled with amazing local cheeses and other delectable choices. Ken set up... More

We had a fantastic time at the Gregans Castle Hotel – and one of the best dinners ever. Do not miss the chance to stay at this enchanted locale. Staff couldn't have been more wonderful and friendly – and the environment, view of the Burren, and general calming peacefulness is just what we needed. What a treat!!!
