Though the staff were nice and friendly, the place itself was awful. I had stayed here a number of years back and it was great, but it has gone downhill a lot. We had a double room, and though the bed was clean, the carpet was stained, the shower was mouldy, and the window was sealed shut. The room was... More

First things first, upon reading certain negative reviews, I was a little worried about staying here, I wont lie. I assumed it would be a complete dive to be honest and that's why I am writing the review. We arrived at 7:30pm on Good Friday and we parked opposite the building no problems at all. (On the Saturday parking was... More

The manager never seems to be around when we try and check-in here and has forgotten to add in bookings made over the phone. TBH the service is really poor. The breakfast is limited and the kitchen area smells of damp/mould, BAD. The rooms are well furnished and have good bedding, showers often didn't work when we were there. Stay... More

My friends and I had an incredible time at this nice little lodge. Unassuming on the outside but I was very pleased with the staff and the lodging and the breakfast. The staff especially were always friendly and helpful with any questions I had. The location of the lodge is perfect as well - just a quick walk from the... More

Stayed in the West Coast Lodge with my friends for a little getaway to Lahinch. The place is pretty clean and location is great as it is just off the main street for everything you need. Perfect place to stay if heading out for the night. The only down side to the lodge is lack of parking, you either have... More

I stayed here with a group, otherwise I would have never selected this place. I was lucky enough to be in a room that had a total of 4 beds (2 sets of bunk beds), but others in our group were in a room that had 14 beds (7 sets of bunk beds) with 1 toilet! The accommodation was a... More

I dont know how to describe this. How this place can remain open is beyond me. If it was a home for dogs it would be shut down. Filthy, smelly toilets. Damp beds. Dog poo all over the outside. Wish I had read some comments before booking. Do not stay here

The West Coast Lodge is something between a Hotel and a hostel. It is located directly in Lahinch, which is a nice little town. There are plenty of Restaurants, Pubs, etc. The village itself is known for nice surfing spots and it's very Close to the famous Cliffs of Moher. As you see the location is absolutely great. The house... More

I went on a roadtrip with my Irish girlfriend (I'm Danish myself), where we stayed at various BnB's down the west of Ireland. West Coast Lodge was definitely the best and most memorable one on the trip. We got a nice room upstairs with what I think was a queen sized bed, and at a good price. Lahinch is also... More

We stayed at West Coast Lodge for only one night last week on a trip round the beautiful west. I had stayed there once before at New Years and still found the rooms to be of a great standard- warm, comfortable and clean. This time my boyfriend and I arrived last minute and were delighted to get a sizeable room... More
