Cornerstone of the Best Western Ireland Vacation

Posted Aug 16, 2016
Location: Things to do nearby... The Ailwee Caves, the Burren, Doolin, Cliffs of Moher, ferry to the Aran Islands, Kylemore Abby, Irish dancing in Kilfenora
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 Moher - it was a home away from home. The staff were so incredibly hospitable. Like visiting an old friend, they sought to our needs in a friendly non-invasive manner. The room was quaint and the bathroom luxurious with wonderful towels and a bath robe. The grounds were tremendously manicured with the most beautiful little flower-filled walkways and a little area reserved for croquet. It is conveniently located a hop-skip and a jump from Ballyvaughan where you can find restaurants, a grocery store, and a little light souvenir shopping (as well as a late night pizza/taco place if you have the munchies). Notably, Gregans Castle restaurant was superb. My husband and I had the best meal we've ever encountered (and that's comparing Gregans Castle to Ashford Castle where we stayed for 2 nights). Our dining experience was limited to several tables allowing for a very attentive experience. Our waiter, Shane, was charming and informative. The food was unparalleled and the ambiance just lovely. You do have to reserve a time for dinner, as you would expect with an upscale restaurant. To share a story commenting on their remarkable hospitality..

Stunning countryside hotel!

Posted Jun 13, 2016
We absolutely loved this hotel. It felt like we were in a Disney film when we turned into the driveway, and the Seven Dwarve's cottage was around the corner. Breathtaking grounds. Beautifully appointed interiors. Would absolutely go back!

The best hotel stay I have had in a very long time. There is no way I could fault the hotel or the staff. I hope to be back soon.

The scenery was incredible

Posted Oct 16, 2015
Pros: The staff's attention to detail, the setting, the ambiance.
Location: The hotel was near the Burrens, which I understand was the spark for J.R.R. Tolkein's "The Lord of the Rings"
The setting for the hotel had some of the most incredible scenery. The staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The dinner was an experience.

Peaceful hotel with excellent location and food

Posted Oct 5, 2015
Pros: Food, setting, friendly efficient service. Peaceful comfort. Great place to escape pressures of everyday life.
Cons: Plumbing idiosynchratic.
Location: Incredible landscape and walking on the coast and inland. Boat trips to Aran Islands. Visit Galway City.
We chose this hotel by its location and Michelin Guide rating. It met our expectations and delivered a really interesting experience. It was like a step back in time, but with the best of modern service and food.
