8 of us stayed here for golf. All would happily return. From the excellent breakfast choices, through nice touches like the drying room for golf gear, it is a first rate place to stay. We eat at the restaurant on our last night and it was easily our best meal in Ireland and priced very reasonably

Just finished a one night stay at the Vaughan Lodge. The lodge was close to the town of Lahinch and the golf course. The rooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was well presented and very tasty.

At first I thought this was just a nice clean hotel. However, by the time I left I realized this was probably the nicest hotel and staff I have ever experienced! Unfortunately, the restaurant was not open on a Tuesday night, but they cheerfully guided us to a great location for dinner. The rooms were great and they thoughtfully had... More

Well appointed, large rooms in nice boutique lodge that staff and owners are obviously very passionate about. Standard akin to much larger city hotel but still maintains cosy charm appropriate for area. Two minutes walk to beach and cafes/pubs, and close to golf course. Restaurant seems popular and was booked out by time I arrived - book ahead unless you... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Vaughan Lodge with 2 other couples. We had an excellent experience at the hotel for a number of reasons. Martina, who greeted us at the front desk, is service personified. She got us checked in, was our bartender in their lounge, arranged a yoga class for the ladies, helped the guys with... More
