Vaughan Lodge

Reviewed June 25, 2012

The Vaughan Lodge was our first stop in Ireland. The rooms were nice and the bed comfortable. The bar was a great place to meet with other guests at the end of the day. The restaurant provided the best dinner of our trip. But the best part of this wonderful inn was its people. The staff was friendly, warm and funny with that incredible Irish sense of humor. It's location was an added plus since you had a great view of the Lahinch Golf Club and could walk to the club. If you like inns over impersonal larger hotels this is a best choice.

We visited for dinner on 16th June, and were blown away by the friendly staff, lovely restaurant decor and great food. That chef really knows what he is doing.

We stayed here for 2 nights B&B + dinner. The dinner was superb, one of the best meals ive had. The waitress couldnt do enough for us without being intrusive at the same time. We ate out the second night in the town and it didnt even compare to the dinner we enjoyed here. Overall the staff were lovely and the rooms were large. We thoughly enjoyed our stay here and would return again.

First time visitors having received a Xmas Gift of two night stay here. The friendless of staff, the comfort of the bedrooms, the lovely bar area and the food here is amazing.Do try the porridge and fish of the day fpr breakfast . We played golf at Lachinch GC and had a most enjoyable stay. Wouldn't mind if we got the same Christmas Present this year !

It's how you recover from the mistakes that sets you apart. Vaughn Lodge made a mistake with our reservation for 4 couples for 2 nights. They moved expeditiously to correct the problem, booked us in a comparble property for the night in question, and couldn't have been nicer about making us feel wanted. When we finally did get to stay at Vaughn Lodge the accomodations were excellent as was the pub and the restaurant. The final result was perfect for us and we thank Michael and his staff for their good work in fixing what could have been a mess.

We stayed for a weekend in May and were more than impressed with the quality of the hotel. The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant was excellent. Will visit again.
