GREGANS CASTLE, Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare, the winner of an Editor’s Choice award for Romantic hotels in 2018, is this month’s prize giver. On the Wild Atlantic Way, with views across the Burren to Galway Bay, the hotel is ‘the epitome of understated country-house hotel luxury’. Its mid-18th century interiors have been given an elegant contemporary spin with monogrammed carpets and charcoal-grey walls in the bar and dining room.
All you need to do to win this handsome prize of a night’s dinner, bed and breakfast for two at Gregans Castle is to SEND A REVIEW of your favourite hotel or B&B in Great Britain or Ireland. We welcome reports on places that have never been in the Guide or have been omitted, as well as those that have a current entry.

With its spa, pools, balconies and sub-tropical gardens overlooking sandy Carne Beach, Toby Ashworth’s hotel is the perfect mix of family-friendliness and luxury. Top marks for Cornish cream teas, local seafood, smiling staff and traditional values. The Nare won this year’s César award as Seaside Hotel of the Year.
