We booked into the lodge for New Years Eve. To my understanding, the guesthouse was closed prior to this. Upon arrival, there was no heat turned on in our bedroom (December in Lahinch is quite cold). When enquiring about this, we were told "yes, so-and-so was supposed to look at that. Hopefully it will be fixed when you return".... Yes,... More

Had a great weekend away here with my college kayaking club! The hostel is in a great place, just 2 minutes from the beach and centre of town. The rooms were great with a range from small 4 person rooms to big 12 person bunk-rooms! The staff were very helpful and always friendly, especially Tina! The facilities were great and... More

Stayed in The West Coast Lodge as part of a college kayak trip to Lahinch. We were shocked by the outstanding friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff especially Tina. The guest house itself was beautiful with a lovely design and more than all the amenities needed. The continental breakfast was amazing and we were always greeted with a smile!... More

The location right in town, just a minute away from the beach and pubs is a big plus. Stayed for the second time to surf Lahinch and enjoyed it again. Rooms ensuite with power showers, everything clean, too. Breakfast is fine incl a choice of cereal and toast, all in all great value.

Just back from my second year staying at the West Coast Lodge. The first year I had a fantastic experience, however since then they have undergone a change in management which has really hurt the charm of the place. Poor service and strict curfews really hindered my enjoyment. Rooms were also extremely basic and dirty in some places.

Rough old towels, mad people drinking and running around corridors all night, noisiest place I have ever been. I didnt sleep at all.Avoid if its the last thing you... More

The room was clean but nothing special, the owner was friendly, the breakfast was a bit poor and we didn't find the WiFi signal. We didn't find the lodge at first but we asked in a shop and it was very well known so it was finally very easy to find.

Stayed here a couple of years ago so booked again as part of a Wild Atlantic Way stopover. It's not the same. The room had a distinct smell of must, and there was rubbish from previous guests on the floor. The common room no longer looks very welcoming either, with a used condom to be found on the balcony area.... More
