“The Food Was Unparalleled and the Ambiance Lovely” 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.

“Exceptional!!!” 5 of 5 starsReviewed 29 July 2016 via mobile Best dinner so far in Ireland. I had the foie gras and then the halibut with a potato ravioli. Exceptional flavour combinations. Delicate dishes that we truly could not fault. The amuse bouche (salmon) was lovely and finally a black currant soufle. The portions were just right. All plates went back to the kitchen wiped clean. Service was great. If there was a 6 id give it a 6! This is a must on any irish road trip.
