Things to Do

There's so much to see and do around Gregans Castle Hotel. You could visit some of the area’s many renowned attractions like the Aran Islands, the Cliffs of Moher and Aillwee Cave. Or how about jigging to some traditional Irish music in the picturesque villages of Doolin and Kilfenora? You can even have tea at Father Ted's house! 

If you’re looking for some activity and excitement, we can arrange horse-riding, golf, cycling, sea kayaking, rock climbing or half or full day walking excursions with a knowledgeable walking guide.

We highly recommend booking an activity or using the services of our fellow Burren Ecotourism members. These business are all independently audited for their environmental sustainability. Click here for a list of these businesses. 

There are also lots of foodie experiences to be had such as an oyster tasting at Flaggy Shore Oysters, bean to bar at Hazel Mountain Chocolates, cuddle the baby goats at St. Tola Cheese Farm or get a private tour of The Burren Smokehouse.

A selection of local maps and guidebooks are available for sale at the hotel and you can take a look at the 'Places to Visit and Activities' section of this website for lots more ideas.
