Stayed here four nights with the family as a base for some Irish sightseeing. The place has a good parking lot and it's a quiet area, although on the main road. Lahinch itself is a very small place with not much to see, but this was an adequate base from where to take our day trips. Breakfast was good and... More

It is hard to match the memorable experience of Lahinch golf, but the Vaughan delivered. Just a short distance from the linx, the staff was pleasant, the bar was cozy and comforting, and the food was outstanding. The dinner and breakfast was some of the best food we had during our entire stay in Ireland. Honestly, combine 18 holes of... More

That is a great recommendation having enjoyed an exhilarating game of golf at Lahinch!! One ryder on the tip given though.. If we feel you need the rest more than you need the drink.... we may open your room door instead of the bar door!!! Lol Thank you Michael More

Easy walk to town center and a quick drive to the beautiful Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. The hotel is run by a very kind, helpful couple. Clean, comfortable, updated rooms. We had to leave early to catch a flight and the manager bent over backwards to make sure my family and I had breakfast before getting on the... More

I suffer from the effects of a compunction that my mother Phil has about making sure visitors to her house leave well fed!! lol I find that I am like Mrs Doyle in Fr Ted asking my guests to "go on.. go on..." and have breakfast before you leave lol Glad we served you well More

We stayed here for one night and I have to say everything about this hotel is just superb. The front desk staff are a pleasure to deal with, the breakfast was 5 star hotel quality, the restaurant is excellent and the rooms are extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean with really comfortable beds. All in all the owners deserve huge credit... More

Vaughan Lodge Hotel in Lahinch Co. Clare is a really lovely country hotel. It actually looks more like a B&B from the road into Lahinch town button closer inspection , it's a very pleasant surprise.

We hoteliers get a little agitated in Ireland when people call our establishments a B&B lol Its as though a hotel was a superior product and that by calling us a B&B that they didnt notice the difference!!. Calling Vaughan Lodge a B&B generally makes me think our guest thought they were in a home stay. That has to be... More

We stayed just one night at Vaughans and found the staff to be friendly, the service excellent , the room large and comfortable and the restaurant amazing. The only disappointment was being allocated a room that overlooked the kitchen's air conditioning system which was noisy. As the weather was warm , our room needed ventilation. The air con noise made... More
