My husband and I decided to make Gregans Castle the last stop on our tandem cycling holiday.
First of all, the staff were very accommodating. We dropped in our luggage a few days prior to our arrival as we wanted to enjoy our stay without bicycle shorts. We kept the tandem in the stables and were shown to our very spacious room with a beautiful view of the garden.
We arrived on Sunday so dinner was served at the bar which we very much preferred for a relaxed atmosphere. The food was impeccable! There was no choice (more like a tasting or surprise menu) - brilliant idea by the way. I had the most beautiful dessert wine that night. Our host was very charming and very knowledgeable.
We retired to a couch in front of the fireplace after dinner very happy.
We were running late for breakfast the following morning. As we rushed down the stairs we met a staff who was on her way to get us. As dinner the night before was so amazing my husband was adamant he was not going to miss his brekkie. Our orders for the hot breakfast was taken very swiftly and realized how lucky we were when a couple (arrived 10 later) was turned away for this.
I'd love to get a jar of their own preserves the next time we pay a visit by car. That is my only regret.More
