Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Pauline warmly welcomed our group of 5 people even though we had been delayed in arriving by a late ferry. The rooms were beautifully decorated and in excellent condition. We loved the huge array of pictures and artworks displayed throughout the house, they really added to the homely feel of the place. In the morning we had a fantastic breakfast with cereals, breads, fruits and cooked options of the highest quality available and served promptly and with a smile. We stayed two nights and would highly recommend this BnB for anyone staying in Ballyvaughan.

This B@B is very nice, also because the owners will let you feel at home. Our room was not large, but had a wonderful view. /the breakfast was outstanding as we could order almost anything. Also a plus is your own parking place.

Absolutely beautiful house with lovely rooms. The hosts are most welcoming. You can feel that they love to make your stay as best as possible. Best breakfast! There is a nice deck to enjoy the sun (if it peeks out now and then….😉) Can‘t get any better!

Love this place, it's a 5☆ guest house at very reasonable rates. Spotless stylish rooms, superb breakfast, incredible hosts. It's a great base to explore the Burren, Co. Clare, a jewel in the crown.

Excellent hosts, food and wonderful accommodation. Never had a breakfast like it even in a 5*hotel. Will certainly be back with family. Gerry and Pauline keep doing what you are doing, an amazing couple

We stayed in two very comfortable and tastefully decorated rooms. The breakfasts were excellent with a wide range of choice. Gerry and Pauline are very welcoming. Thank you! We definitely plan to visit stay again. This guest house is located within the village and is only a few minutes walk from restaurants and bars.

Upon arrival here I was greeted with a handshake and a smile from the owner Gerry. Again I can’t fault the accommodation at all, the choices for breakfast were vast, more fresh fruit than I have ever seen outside of a large hotel. The hot choices were delicious. Well recommended for the weary traveler. A 3 minute walk to the nearest bar that has live music 7 nights a week

Everything at Ballyvaughan Lodge was perfect. No complaints whatsoever. The hosts were delightful. Their breakfast was fantastic with a great deal of choice. Thank you, to you both, for a wonderful stay. Definitely a top recommendation.
