The hotel was great. We had a spacious room with a great view of the water and the Lahinch golf course. The staff was even better. When we arrived, I had hit a pot hole which caused my front tire to go flat. Linda, who was working the front desk, offered her tire pump from her car and even recruited... More

This family run Lodge makes you feel "at home" the staff are so friendly and goes over and above to meet your needs. The food is awesome. We stayed for 3 nights at the Lodge and enjoyed every minute of it. Great place and very close to the golf course and downtown.

We came for the golf but ended up surprised at the quality of the hotel and Restaraunt. The rooms have extra amenities such as a 110V outlet and USB ports for charging. Overall rooms were very clean, comfortable and spacious. The Restaraunt was the big surprise - breakfast was by far the best we had during the week in Ireland... More

We just spent 3 nights in Vaughans Lodge and can honestly say it was more than we expected. The staff are amazing and every Hotel should have a Linda on front desk. She is so welcoming and always there with a smile and to help you in any way she can. We were in room 208 which was fabulous overlooking... More

We arrived in desperate need of some laundry as we had been travelling for quite a while. Although the laundry service had already stopped for the day, we were told that it would be no problem and our items were returned to us withing 2 hours clean and pressed which was really going the extra mile which I really appreciated....

Vaughan Lodge the perfect location, close to town and central for touring the region. The Cliffs of Moher are spectacular, just a short drive from this hotel and the Wild Atlantic Way is a gloriously scenic drive. The restaurant at Vaughans is exceptional, freshest of local produce and deliciously prepared. Hotel staff are wonderful making the whole experience a stay... More

My husband and I spent two nights here with another couple while on a golfing holiday. The Lodge is perfectly situated near Lahinch Golf Links. We had two deluxe seaview rooms which were HUGE and very well appointed. Breakfast each day was a TREAT... lots of choice and very well prepared. The proprietor, Michael is very warm and hospitable and... More

Four intrepid American golfers stayed their last two nights in-country at Vaughn Lodge. We arrived after Ballybunion and its 40 mph winds were through with us, so we checked into our rooms and stumbled down to the restaurant for dinner. The next day was our last round of the trip - appropriately at Lahinch, which I could see from my... More
