“The Best with the Warmest Heart”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

James and Mary's 19th Lodge is very SPECIAL! 5 Star accommodations but with impeccable service and attention! No just my opinion, it based on many friends who have stayed there for years.
Right across from Ballybunion Golf Course. James and Mary understand superior service and deliver it - everyday.

delightful hosts Mary & James await with golf a stones throw from the door. Nicely appointed comfortable rooms - we stayed in the Tom Watson room overlooking the course. Terrific breakfast - overall a great choice for a B & B.

We made a trip to Ireland and stayed at several B and B's in the south west corner of Ireland. We loved our stay in Ballybunion at the 19th Lodge. James and Mary were incredible hosts and made our stay amazing. We definitely recommend staying here and would love to come back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sam Torrence room because it had 2 beds. The king for me and a twin for my son...

We stayed at the 19th Hole Lodge for several nights last week and were thoroughly impressed with the accommodations and service. Mary and Jim are some of the nicest people you will ever meet and they were always there to take care of our needs. The rooms were spacious and there was even an air conditioning unit, which is rare in Ireland. The location right next to Ballybunion Golf Club was excellent as well. I highly recommend the 19th Hole Lodge!

Mary and James were wonderful hosts. Located directly across from Ballybunion, this lodge was immaculately clean, cozy and the breakfast was outstanding! The 19th should be on all golfers Ireland itineraries.

And the 19th Lodge is just as outstanding as always. Mary and James make you feel like one of the family. The rooms and breakfast are top notch. Access to Ballybunion golf course could not be better. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

This lodge was ideal. It has a beautiful setting and it is very clean. The owners are so nice and were so helpful during our stay here. The breakfast was freshly cooked and there were a selection of fresh fruit and cereal available. I would stay again and highly recommend it to anyone.
