My brothers and I recently stayed at the 19th Lodge for two nights and couldn't have been happier! Mary and James are the kindest and most attentive hosts you could ever hope for and the location is perfect if you are planning on golfing at the prestigious Ballybunion Golf Club (just a par 6 away). The rooms we had were... More

Two of us traveling around Ireland had a great stay at the 19th lodge, I got a hole in one on the Old Course at Ballybunion which made it perfect! The rooms were spacious and very quiet... perfect for sleeping. Plenty of car parking.

For all you golfers, The 19th Lodge is a Driver and Wedge from Ballybunion Clubhouse. Just returned from an extended golf trip and Mary and James' Lodge was the best place we stayed. Rooms were spotless and spacious, breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Can't say enough about this house. Don't even consider anyplace else. Shay Hogan

This is a great B&B - beautifully decorated and a welcoming atmosphere. Mary and James are excellent hosts and make you feel very, very welcome and at home. Our room was spotless and spacious. Breakfast was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our night at the 19th Lodge.

Delightful experience. Stayed 3 days at the 19th Lodge and were attended to by Mary and James. They were accomodating in every way and the rooms and furnishing were outstanding. Would certainly do again.

We enjoyed our one night stay at The 19th Lodge with Mary and James. After golfing at Ballybunion, it was wonderful to walk into the comfort of the lodge. Our room was very clean and bright. Breakfast was wonderful and cooked to perfection. We would definitely stay again...just like Tom Watson!
