This was my second stay at Michael Vaughn's top shelf lodge. Aside from beautiful rooms, a wonderful guest lounge & bar, this has become one of the best places to have dinner in this area of Ireland. I had one of the best beef filets in my life one evening. Included breakfast is just grand with a cold buffet &... More

Stayed there for three nights as we played golf at Lahinch and Doonbeg. Great location (500 yards from Lahinch) and a 5 minute walk into the center of town. Dinner there was excellent, and the breakfast included in the room rate was top notch. Staff could not have been nicer. Rooms are modern and clean.

This was our first visit to Vaughan Lodge. The accommodation, staff and food were outstanding. Car parking good with lots of space. We would have appreciated an evening dinner menu to run alongside the a la carte menu but this didn't spoil our stay. Would return here and recommend whole heartedly.

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....
