Cregg Castle and its Surroundings.
Cregg Castle combines a rich heritage in accessible landscape with a truly warm welcome.
It’s difficult to categories Cregg Castle –it’s more hearty guest house than hotel.
Guests can bring their own drinks, as there is no bar, and wine is readily available.
There are lovely walks - up the lane and into the Church Park with its ancient graveyard . . .
down by the Cregg River, which flows through the land. Cregg is natural and unspoilt and ripe for exploring.
It is a wonderful, warm and historic house, built in 1648 on the site of an 11th Century Castle.
Its full of traditional Irish music and conversation by the fireside.
Don’t just take our word for it “We did not know at arrival, but by the time we left we not
only had the best experience of our lives --but we gained friends for life. The grounds,
the staff, the food, the music, the food, the rooms, the food, the atmosphere, did I mention the food?”

Farmlands, Music and Dining at Cregg Castle
With 165 acres of farmland to explore “the castle grounds were lovely to amble around -
and it is an ideal place to unwind and enjoy the simple pleasures.” Sean Connolly, New Zealand.
As the castle is also a farm, home grown and prepared meals are a feature.
But what really sets Cregg Castle apart is the Irish music sessions with the host Pat Broderick.
Guests are free to make coffee or tea, at any time of the day or night and the “Great Hall” boasts an open turf fire.
Cregg Castle is a perfect retreat from which to venture into the great city of Galway (9 miles) and a
is a good base to explore Connemara and further a field.
Rooms are comfortable and have a
relaxed atmosphere. Children are welcome and infants stay free. Many of the
guestrooms command lovely views of the surrounding countryside and are decorated
with a blend of old style and contemporary furnishings.
