A perfect place to stay whilst enjoying the fabulous Lahinch golf course. The service received was exemplary by everyone, nothing was too much bother, and they went above and beyond regularly. The food was stunning. Book here and you are on to a winner.

Such lovely words and sentiment ... Small is beautiful in our eyes and we are glad you stayed in to enjoy our dinner service So many guests walk out the door not knowing the best restaurant in the village is right where they are staying. I cook the breakfast so Im thrilled you enjoyed it too!! Come back again anytime!!... More

I recently organised a group weekend away for a large bunch of ladies. We’ve just returned and were all blown away by the warmth and professionalism from all of the staff at Vaughan Lodge. The food was superb (both dinner and breakfast menus). The location is ideal, just a stone’s throw from the town - less than a 5 minute... More

"Vaughan Lodge, Lahinch for a Michelin Star" Vaughan Lodge in Lahinch is run by Michael Vaughan and it is just superb. The food really deserves a Michelin star. Just minutes walk from the Lahinch sea front, this lovely hotel is spotless, brilliantly run, efficient and friendly. We are lucky enough to enjoy nice places to eat in Dublin with our... More

I'm beginning to blush here.... We would like to think we have a very high standard of food and are totally glad you enjoyed it. The best award we can get is a returning guest or someone visiting on the recommendation of another guest..... Your words of encouragement were welcomed by John, Pawel, Lucas, Breda Milena and the the team... More

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 stayed here for one night and I have to say everything about this hotel is just superb.
