Recently spent 2 weeks golfing in Scotland and Ireland with another couple. This was our last stop and a delightful end to our trip! The food was outstanding - best breakfast I had during our trip both in quality and presentation, and dinner was so delicious and beautifully presented we requested a trip to the kitchen to meet the chef!...

My husband, daughter and I stayed here for one night on 17/7/14. We found this hotel so welcoming and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms were tastefully decorated with extra attention to details, like a fan in the rooms, a music stereo, quality bathroom products, and fluffy large towels. Excellent comfortable beds & pillows to ensure a... More

We recently stayed at Vaughan's for 4 nights, it has to be one of the best places we have stayed and we have stayed at a lot of places around the world. The physical attributes of the hotel are great, with very good sized rooms, a great bar and even better dining room. The hotel is located a short walk... More

I believe the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, and Aran Islands pull up the prices of accommodation in this area, but compared to other places we stayed in Ireland, Vaughan Lodge seemed to be twice the price for about the same product. It is more like a hotel than a B&B and is close to restaurants in town. Breakfast was... More

Thank you for your review, We are glad you enjoyed our service and hotel. It is a hotel alright and not a B&B .... we have never advertised it as anything other than a full service four star hotel. The stay here cost Eur70 per person bed and breakfast on the night in question. Looking through the other places the... More

My husband and I and another couple recently returned from a golfing trip to Ireland. Our travel specialists, SGH Golf, booked us into this small boutique hotel in Lahinch. What a find! This is billed as a small luxury hotel and restaurant and was everything as advertised and more. The owner, Michael Vaughn, was terrific and chatted with us on... More

Our group consisted of four couples on a nine day golf and sightseeing trip to Ireland. We stayed at the Trident Hotel in Kinsale for two nights, the Malton in Killarney for four and spent the last two nights of our vacation in Lahinch. The Vaughn Lodge exceeded our expectations enormously. Two things were particularly impressive. First of all, the... More

If you are in the Lahinch area it is a MUST stay. The location is perfect to reaching all areas of interest and right around the corner from the golf course. They have a restaurant that serves up the best hospitality and the food is better than excellent. You can experience the warmth of home in the lobby room for... More

Family best describes our hotel. The team here are almost family after so many years with some and the new arrivals are always cherished!! Staff members recommend their friends and family to work with us so it does become a bit clubby for our guests. We are so delighted that you chose to share your experiences with other TA members!...

In same group as Eric B. In June 2014 and agree with his assessment. The best lodging we had in two weeks touring Ireland. You can't go wrong staying here. Short walk to town, golf course even closer....quiet but convenient location, clean modern rooms, great food, Nice lounge .....personable, friendly staff.

Thank you for your review I am not certain what has brought the average score down on this review but our hotel is more suited to smaller groups and couples than larger groups who sometimes expect something different to what we offer. We are glad you enjoyed your visit nonetheless More
