From the moment that our group of 8 entered the Lodge, we were made to feel completely at ease and were treated to Excellent service, delightful suites and absolutely AMAZING cuisine, combined with a truly fantastic wine list. Michael, the proprietor was always on hand and is a wonderful example of a hotelier at their very best. WELL DONE !...

This is a wonderful hotel. The rooms are very big. Beds are firm. Showers are nice but in the tub. There is a drying room for golfers to use for wet clothes. The breakfast is very nice with a lot of selections. The staff is wonderful. I left a bag in Enniscrone and Linda arranged a taxi to bring it...

Thank You Gary for your nice words. I am glad that we managed to get your bag back to you. It was unfortunate that we had to remind the driver that he had agreed a price with us, but if you ever need someone to fight for the guest it would be Linda - who will ensure that a fair...

8 of us stayed here for golf. All would happily return. From the excellent breakfast choices, through nice touches like the drying room for golf gear, it is a first rate place to stay. We eat at the restaurant on our last night and it was easily our best meal in Ireland and priced very reasonably

Thank you Scot for recommending our hotel. Our menu at €45.00 is a really good deal for a fine dining restaurant and we are glad you thought so too. It is gratifying that you enjoyed what we had to offer. Come back sometime again. Michael

Just finished a one night stay at the Vaughan Lodge. The lodge was close to the town of Lahinch and the golf course. The rooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was well presented and very tasty.

At first I thought this was just a nice clean hotel. However, by the time I left I realized this was probably the nicest hotel and staff I have ever experienced! Unfortunately, the restaurant was not open on a Tuesday night, but they cheerfully guided us to a great location for dinner. The rooms were great and they thoughtfully had...

We are blushing here at the accolade you have bestowed on us!! Many people ask why we do not enter for this award and for that award since we try to run a really good hotel and restaurant. My answer has always been that the appreciation of our guests is reward enough. Your review proves that point rather well,,,,,, Thank...
