“Very Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2009

The Lodge was very quaint. Rooms were very nice and clean. Great sitting area with television on first floor. Breakfast cooked personally every day by Mary was excellent. James was very gracious and made sure that our group had cushions for the chairs when we sat outside. Computer on second floor for guest use was a wonderful touch. If you golf, hotel located right across the street from Ballybunion Golf Club. Only negative is that you can't walk into town from the hotel's location and there is no bar/lounge...but you can purchase alcoholic beverages from Mary and James for consumption anywhere in the hotel.

This is a lovely hotel, spotless and charming with good computer access and the location is super. The made to order breakfasts are sumptious and Mary's pancakes are worth traveling 3000 miles for! But it is Mary and John's hospitality, warmth and attention to guests needs that make the 19th Lodge a must stay in Kerry.

Great location, short walk to the golf course. We have stayed at the 19th Lodge for a number of years: the rooms are clean and comfortable. The computer works,plenty of parking. Mary and John Beasley are great hosts and Mary's pancakes are worth the stay.

We booked this Guesthouse on the basis of all the other good reviews & were not disappointed. It’s of hotel standard with large, beautifully decorated rooms & bathrooms. Mary & James were fantastic hosts, even accommodating us with a later than normal breakfast after a late night in Ballybunion... I would certainly recommend the 19th Lodge and will be making a return trip in future!

Mary and James were a joy. A delightful location, a short walk from Ballybunion golf course. Spacious rooms kept clean, good facilities.

We found the 19th Lodge to be the most luxurious Guest House we have ever stayed in. The room sizes were perfect to allow our little baby roll about and stretch out in the evenings. Both Mary and James couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating.

The location is perfect for the golfers visiting Ballybunion.
