I've stayed twice now at The 19th Lodge while golfing in West Ireland and both experiences were first-class! The owners, James & Mary, make you feel as if you're staying with family. The rooms are beautiful & cozy, the perfect place to begin and end your day. There's even free wi-fi. The best part though has to be the home-cooked... More

James and Mary make your stay like being at home. Excellent accommodations and service just across the road from Ballybunion. Our group stayed two nights and even though our arrival was delayed until midnight, we were met with open arms and a warm smile.

Mary and James are just so warm and the location is fabulous. The rooms are excellant and you can't beat breakfast. Adding wi-fi was terrific and the little area outside to have a drink and smoke a cigar even better. Great for a buddies golf trip or with your spouse. No better place in Ballybunion

The bathroom was well equipped with a large tub and great hot shower. The location is ideal if you are playing the Ballybunion courses. The breakfast was home cooked every morning with... More

After much anticipation, we were delighted to spend three nights of our recent golf trip around Ireland at The 19th Lodge. Located just across the road from the spectacular Ballybunion Golf Course, The 19th Lodge presents a homely yet stately architectural style and interior. Mary and James are truly caring and attentive hosts. Their establishment is a credit to their... More

Great accommodations and wonderful hosts. We had a group of guys on a special golf trip and James and Mary couldn't have done more to get our trip off to a fantastic start. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling in the area.

Excellent location, extremely comfortable accommodation with as friendly a host as you could wish for. James and Mary make sure your stay is all you hope it will be and can give you great advice on things to do and see in the area. Well worth a visit.

It felt like home away from home. Very good hospitality. They are very accommodating and friendly. the location is great...very close to Ballybunion gold course and driving range. Restuarants are close as well. Highly recommend this destination for hotel accommodations for family and groups.
