We stayed in Gregans for two nights and we did like it. Attention to detail cannot be faulted. Spotless and the surroundings are so beautiful. My husband and I have done a lot of travelling and we have never experienced a meal like this before. Top Notch and most definitely the highlight to our stay. Simply excellent served with a... More

Our top location on our 11 day driving tour. Beautiful location, views of the Burren and lovely grounds I'd like to have explored more. Great staff, and the barman gave me some valuable lessons on Irish whiskey.

Stupefyingly boring location that is definitely not a castle! If slacks and tie dressing on Saturday arvo are your thing you'll love it.This is a boring location, cliffs of Moher are 30 mins away but there is nothing else noteworthy. To us it appeared a cringeworthy english imitation of posh.

More like a manor house B&B than a true castle but still really nice - the room was huge and everything was nice and clean. The breakfast was really good - there was a buffet with local cheeses and meats, fruit, pastries, juice, and you could order eggs from the kitchen. Kind of out in the middle of nowhere but... More

Absolutely wonderful spread in beautiful surroundings! Love it! Cosy hotel with nooks and crannies to be explored - lovely bar with fireplace. Located in the centre of the Burren - stunning scenery. Will definitely be back.

The property is one of the more unique properties we've ever stayed at. The bar area is warm and cozy with its own menu and excellent bartender. The owners and associated staff are warm and always looking to assist.

Stop into this gem of a hotel with my friend on our way to Doolin, so glad we did, we were greeted by Ken, who gave us a very warm welcome and could not do enough for us. It was absolutely warm and relaxing with excellent service. The hotel was booed out unfortunately for myself and my friend who found... More

Gregan's Castle Hotel is absolutely lovey! The gardens and gorgeous decor are charming and the service is top-notch. We dined on superb food and felt pampered by the warm staff. This property is wonderful in every respect! We hope to return.

A beautiful manor house set in a valley overlooking The Burren. Gorgeously appointed in a tasteful style. It is a very comfortable base from which to explore The Burren, Cliffs of Mohar and the surrounding countryside. The hotel has a gourmet restaurant providing inventive cuisine using local ingredients. It also has an informal tavern that is a comfortable place for... More

We've just had three great days at Gregans and the Burren. Peace descended as soon as we arrived. Everything is calm, and quality. Service is charming. Comfort is everywhere. If we were to compare it to anywhere else it would be to Hotel Endsleigh in Dartmoor....but even then it has the edge. We will be back.
