The Vaughan Lodge, more of a small hotel, was our favorite place to stay on a golf trip to the west of Ireland. They have a very nice bar - not a pub - off the lobby (in which we watched american football on a Sunday night). The restaurant is supposed to be quite good, but it was closed the... More

Vaughan Lodge is a short walk to Lahinch, an extremely beautiful and challenging golf course. The rooms were great, the bar area was warm and inviting and the staff were most delightful. We could walk to golf, and downtown to the pubs and restaurants on the main drag. Breakfast was a typical great Irish feast!

Great experience - VERY friendly staff. Stayed at the Vaughn Lodge two weeks ago with a group of friends (12) during an eight day golf trip - Saturday/Sunday nights. Can't wait to return. Thank you for making us feel at home. The rooms were spotless, updated and comfortable. The food was fresh.

We stayed here on our last 2 nights of our 8 day Golf Trip.. This is a upscale, modern hotel. Exceptional Service, Great Food, Great Location! The Food is top-notch, the bar was very cosy. Our bartender/front desk mgr. was very good at multitasking. Can't say enough good things about this property. A must if you want to stay close... More

Im smiling at your multi tasking observation.... It is a small hotel and a long winter that does not provide enough business for us to keep going beyond October. Multi tasking is the only way we can all survive, but it also adds variety to our day. Its all one family of co workers here from myself down to kryz... More

Stayed at Vaughan Lodge for the second time and it will always be one of our favorite places in Ireland. The proximity to Lahinch Golf Club is convenient and the ability to walk into Lahinch is very good for shopping and entertainment. There's no reason to leave Vaughan Lodge for meals...nothing compares with the high level of cuisine that you'll... More

Thank you for writing such a kind note on Trip Advisor We are small enough to offer an extra little service than larger hotels. It is one of the best rewards a hotelier can experience when a guest returns and is as delighted on their return as they were when they departed. Your tip is a good one but just... More

Stayed at the the lodge our first night in Ireland, Right around the corner from Lahinch Golf Club. Wonderful dinner. Incredible full Irish breakfast. The food is obviously local, and you can taste the difference! Staff was extremely friendly, and helpful. After a round of golf, the shower was like having a massage! Would highly recommend.

This was our 4th visit to Vaughan Lodge, and it remains one of our favorite places in Ireland. Everything about Vaughan's is excellent from its lodging, its friendliness, and most importantly, its restaurant. After a challenging day on the links it is very relaxing to come back to Vaughan's for a pint of Guinness and an exceptional dinner.
