Thank you Mary for choosing to stay with us.
We try hard to remember that our guests have honoured us with their choice when they stay and that it is our honour to serve them and have them leaving refreshed in body and mind.
We appreciated your business

My wife's family is from Clare, and we have visited the area often. On several occasions we have stayed at spots (which shall go un-named here) in Lahinch, and have left them to stay with relatives instead. Therefore, I did not have high hopes for Vaughan despite reviews. We have stayed in castles and major hotels during our years in Ireland, and I am happy to share that the Vaughan Lodge has jumped up as a location for referral. Located slightly outside the town, it is surprisingly quiet and has beautiful views. My wife, college son, and I stayed for three nights:
*Friendly & personalized service from every staff member; everyone always working, but never too busy, effortless check-in & check-out
*Hotel clean everywhere, and will answer any need immediately
*Room good size, well-lit, bright décor, very clean, adequate wifi, comfortable beds, could have used a tea maker
*Bath good size, bright, very clean, plenty of designer soaps (and face towels!)
*Breakfast varied, plentiful, well-cooked and presented, pleasant atmosphere, excellent staff
Please utilize this family operated establishment if visiting anywhere in this region. We enjoyed our time there greatly, and recommend it highly.

You have made our day with this review!
family is the key to our little hotel - everyone working here is part of our family and they all do such a great job at conveying the hospitality handed down to us over four generations.
We have been toying with providing tea and coffee makers in the rooms but we still like to deliver freshly ground coffee and brewed tea with our compliments and a nice home made biscuit. If Nespressos offered a smile and some personality we might be swayed ...lol but for the moment we think the human touch is our way.
Thank you for staying and being so kind to review your experience
Michael

My two friends and I had only one disappointment... That we didn't stay here longer! This is a beautiful hotel with friendly staff and good facilities. It is a quick walk to Lahinch and very convenient as a result. The breakfast was delicious and we really enjoyed our stay!

A perfect score is hard to achieve and we are all so delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much.
There's an old Irish saying that says ... an seanachas is fearr is an seanachas is gearr .. The short visit is the best visit !! Short and sweet perhaps but there is always a next time
We would be honoured!!

This was my second stay at Michael Vaughn's top shelf lodge. Aside from beautiful rooms, a wonderful guest lounge & bar, this has become one of the best places to have dinner in this area of Ireland. I had one of the best beef filets in my life one evening. Included breakfast is just grand with a cold buffet & hot items off the menu. Golfers will appreciate the drying room if you have a wet day on the links. If you stay here please do spend the evening in the lounge!

Well,....... we are just celebrating 10 years of age this year and thankfully we are maturing well like a nice wine lol
This is what we live for - a returning guest saying that everything is getting better !!
Being a seasonal hotel we start fresh each year and that is almost like opening a new hotel each year.... except for the fact that so many of our wonderful staff return to make it all happen!!
It was a real pleasure to see you back and hopefully your plans for an extended stay in Ireland in the future will work out splendidly !!!
Thank you

Michael
