Comfy room offering a good nights sleep with a top breakfast freshly created by Pauline in the kitchen and served at table by the industrious Gerry. 26 years experience under their belts and it shows (figuratively speaking!) in their charming, relaxed and helpful manner.

I stayed here recently for 2 nights and what a truly lovely experience it was from start to finish. Checking in was quick and convenient, my room looked out on the beautiful front garden and main road. The room was tastefully decorated, room and well-appointed. One of the things that was STUNNING about the whole house was the collection of superb original art work. And the bedroom was no exception - some lovely paintings on the walls. How delighted was I, also, to find outside my bedroom door, a little table with a huge collection of magazines - a lovely touch. Outside, in front of the Lodge, was a seating area with plenty of space for several people to relax and enjoy the evening sun...and read a magazine or sip a glass of something. But the piece de resistance for me was the fantastic, imaginative breakfast. Mushrooms with Blue Cheese? How divine. Fantastic brown bread, plus all the other usual treats. And all prepared and served by the owners, Gerry and Pauline. They were such good hosts....you really felt that they would do whatever they could to help you - no matter how strange your request might be. A sheer delight and I would go back in a flash - what more can I say? Thanks for a great experience.

A group of three couples were doing a walking week in the Burren and fortunately we booked into Ballyvaughan Lodge for BnB. Pauline and Gerry's kindness, friendliness and helpfulness were second to none. Breakfasts were absolutely delicious, varied and cooked to order. There are very few places where you continue to anticipate and enjoy breakfast for seven mornings in a row! We did here. The residents' lounge was always at our disposal for nightly 'not so professional' music sessions! Great fun was had by all throughout a wet and windy week. I would highly recommend Ballyvaughan Lodge for your stay in the beautiful Burren area of Co. Clare.
