Sadly we could only stay here one night, as they were fully booked for several nights ahead. That was not a surprise. Spaceous and clean rooms and friendly and helpful staff. The real star here was the food, though. Best food I've har in Ireland and a fair price. Breakfast was devine as well. You would be wise not to... More

I cannot ask for a better outcome than this from any guest staying at Vaughan Lodge. We are hospitality people after all, and to have served and achieved our guest's satisfaction brings us great pleasure. I am particularly pleased to have my efforts in the breakfast kitchen mentioned.... Food is at the centre of what we offer. It costs us... More

We stayed there for just two nights. Very nice rooms. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Martina was so accommodating and such a hard worker - front desk, bar tender, bringing us extra towels. All done with a smile. We had an early flight - breakfast doesn't start til 7:00 but they arranged to have the buffet out at 5:45.... More

We recently had a group of 12 couples spend 3 nights at Vaughan Lodge. The guys played golf every day & the ladies went on various tours. Vaughan Lodge was recommended by our tour operator & they were 100% correct that this place is incredible. Nice rooms, great staff, cozy bar and the friendliest people you'll ever want to meet....

My wife and I stayed here recently and from the welcome we received to the food (both dinner and breakfast) the complete experience was just wonderful.

Well Mr Dooley - the water pressure is close to 3 bar pressure which is definitely good for a wash!! Especially desired if you have had a long arduous day on the golf course! Home from home is the best compliment you could pay us. So delighted that you enjoyed the visit. Don't wait too long to return ! More

Superb. Superb. Superb. This hotel is a gem. Could not fault anything. The staff are outstanding. Dinner is the best we have had anywhere. Lots of little surprises between courses from the chef. Brilliant wine list. Can't wait to come back.

My husband and i stayed for two nights at Vaughan Lodge. The lodge is a clean, efficient place and a value for it's location. We walked to town several times a day (takes only a few moments).

Thank you for your review Vanessa. We are a little down that you did not like our rooms but décor is so much a matter of taste. Not sure what we could add to the rooms to make them to your ideal. We redecorated last winter and will be constantly improving. We have a modern hotel - not a chintzy... More

This hotel has a great location and the staff is very friendly. The rooms are a bit spartan---more like rooms that are set up just for men golfers. We are golfers so appreciated the space for our clubs, but not a very warm atmosphere in the room. Also, there is no tea service in the room. You have to call... More

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. We are a little disappointed that we did not meet your expectations.

Great staff, great bar and very comfortable rooms. Staff was very helpful, and it was close enough to walk to town. Unfortunately can not comment on the resturant as it was closed the nights we stayed.

We were only there one night, but the service was amazing. Everyone really made the extra effort. The beach was fun for the kids and it is very close to the Cliffs of Moher. We would've enjoyed a longe visit.

Not the most upscale place you'll ever stay, but a really nice spot with a short walk to town and a most accommodating staff. It's so nice to be in a strange place and have people treat you so well. I'd definitely go back.
