The Vaughn Lodge presents simple but effective accommodation. Nothing about the hotel is exceptional, but nothing disappoints either. To be fair, it is the nicest hotel in town and a good place to stay if visiting the cliffs. The breakfast omelets and porridge were very good.

I am not sure how to respond to this review. Our hotel is really well maintained and decorated and currently is looking as fresh as ever. We just don't seem to have resonated with the reviewer's tastes or expectation except for our porridge and omelettes. If there was something I could take and change from reading the review I would...

This hotel located on the main road is very close to the Lahinch Golf Course. The rooms are very large and comfortable-well furnished and appointed. The Vaughan Lodge has a terrific staff and they are helpful in every way. Can highly recommend eating in their dining room. The food is excellent.

Thank you so much Rob for the review. We are so thrilled you enjoyed our company as we did yours. We are sorry we can only open the restaurant five nights each week but that allows us to produce a high standard consistently.

You don't have to be a golfer to appreciate Vaughan Lodge (we're not), but its popularity with travelers who come to play the nearby links means that it's a good idea to book this small hotel in advance. We chose Vaughan Lodge for its proximity to the Burren, the distinctive ancient rocky landscape compelling for photographers and walkers. The well...
