We returned to the Ballyvaughan Lodge with our sister and brother in law in tow. Our visit was again exceptional. Gerry and Pauline are wonderful hosts, offered expansive breakfast and great conversation. Ballyvaughan is a charming little town. We hope to return!

Our hosts, Gerry and Pauline, could not have been more wonderful and accommodating. We first arrived directly from the airport, Gerry invited us to "go have a crepe" in town while our room was readied. This gave us an opportunity to stretch the legs after a harrowing drive through the Burren to reach Ballyvaughan. Small town on the South side...

Rooms and common areas were all very nice. Pauline and Gerry always helpful and fun. Location excellent, although it is hard to be far from anything in Ballyvaughan. Great breakfasts. Everything is clean and tastefully decorated.

The lodge offers rather small logies accommodation but with all facilities. The breakfast is however top, the best we had on this trip. The lodge is located in the centre of Ballyvaughan within walking distance of restaurants.

My husband and I stayed with Pauline and her husband for one night, but wish we would have stayed longer. This B&B is clean and well located with very hospitable owners. We enjoyed one of the best breakfast spreads while staying- and we stayed at many B&B's on our trip. This stop was one of most memorable of the trip....

we were travelling as a group of (8) friends. When we arrived the welcome was awsome, so friendly we thought we were welcomed by friends. The rooms are so well decorated large beautifully furnished and comfortable. Gerry and his wife are great hosts. This place was the best one we stayed at during our trip across Clare, Connemara and Mayo....

We stayed here for one night only but wish it was longer. Ballyvaughan Lodge is a perfect place to stay. Excellent accommodation, friendly service and an amazing breakfast. Highly recommended. The village has some very good options for dining and a great bar to get to Know other travellers and locals.

Very good, clean and modern Bed & Breakfast in Southern Ireland. Quiet town, not much night life, but a good stop over and easy to get to other sites in the area. The couple who own and run this do a great Breakfast!

Fabulous welcome and stay at Pauline and Gerry's bed and breakfast. Breakfast was 1st class. Gerry very kindly spent some time helping me out with a request I made. Would definitely stay there again. Very well located to walk into town to eat dinner.

What a superb location for touring around the beautiful scenery of the Burren and all of Co Clare. Only approx 3km from the Aillwee Caves which was wonderful and also included a birds of prey display not to mention the gift shop and restaurant which amongst it's array of tray bakes etc had the most wonderful boiled cake with whiskey...
