Gregans Castle Hotel

A (lime)stone’s throw away from the mesmerising Burren

Gregans Castle Hotel

Escape to the country by booking your next retreat at Gregans Castle Hotel – a historic hideaway on the cusp of one of Ireland’s most original national parks. The Burren is a marvel of limestone, mountains, wildflowers and green stretches, home to many old-world structures that speak of years gone by. Echoing the spirit of this special place, our castle hotel parallels the magic of nature in a way that’s growingly rare to find in modern times. Let’s explore…

Shirk the distractions of contemporary life with a trip to our four-star gourmet getaway, which puts you in touch with history, tradition, and Ireland’s most remarkable rural fruits. The beautiful peace and wonder of the Burrens – an astonishing glaciokarst gem – is something we prize, which is why you’ll find no TVs in our bedrooms: helping you tune in to the natural tranquillity of our historic hotel.

Our goal is to make you feel more connected to yourself and nature during your stay, just as we at Gregans Castle Hotel take every measure to interact with the world around us. We work synergistically with the local landscape, sourcing seasonal ingredients from local artisan producers and linking our guests to the very best experiences that West Ireland has to offer. Cycle, walk, ride, surf, golf, sightsee and more in the surrounding countryside, which is home to major sights including the Cliffs of Moher and Aran Islands. Feel free to bring your four-legged friend along, too – we’re sure they’ll love a holiday here as much as you do.
