We didn't stay in Vaughan Lodge this time but had dinner there on Sunday night. It was superb! First class food in a first class location! Absolutely LOVED my crab starter (amazing fusion of flavours) and the lamb was delicious. Everyone in the party (4) was speaking in superlatives after our meal. Thanks to everyone, management, chef & ladies who... More

We stayed at Vaughan Lodge in early August and had a simply wonderful visit. Tip top hospitality and welcome from Michael and his fantastic team. Lovely well equipped rooms, delicious Irish breakfasts, lazy afternoons in the library and delightful evening dining.Wonderful atmosphere and hospitality. Thank you for a fantastic visit and looking forward to return in 2016.

Earlier this month my wife and I returned to play golf in Lahinch. On our trip 8 years ago we stayed at Vaughan Lodge and have since held it in the highest regards. We both worried it could not live up to our expectations on this trip but it did....and exceeded them. The comfort, coziness, great food and wonderful staff... More

Stayed at the Vaughan for two nights. The room was large enough, extremely clean (which really pleases me) and lovely views of the golf course & ocean. Every aspect of the hotel is excellent, but the receptionist Linda was wonderful. What an awesome asset to Vaughan Lodge, not only with her professionalism but her wonderful sense of humour. We also... More

Thank you for your lovely words about our hotel Lisa was the other name you were looking for and both Linda and Lisa are superb. We are sorry your scoring reflects that you didn't get enough value and we are all puzzled that our service was marked down - perhaps our Restaurant being closed on Sunday and Monday evenings affected...

Once again we had a perfect stay at Vaughan Lodge. We vacation in Ireland every summer, and when in Lahinch always stay at Vaughan Lodge, this was our third consecutive summer visit. The Lodge has everything we could desire: rooms with comfortable beds and great showers: a location within walking distance of the village and of Lahinch Golf Club; and... More

This four star B&B is in a good location for early tee times at Lahinch. An excellent breakfast and comfortable room. The host is friendly and handles all needs from check in to tap room. Club storage and easy parking.

We have rated this as the second best hotel we have stayed in anywhere in the world. We were sent there after being double booked at the Ballinalacken Castle and they could not have done more for us. Very central for the town, ample parking, free wifi. The staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful, the bedrooms were large and... More
