I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights the hotel is spotless and is in a great location room was also very nice. However I got charged 17 euros for a full Irish breakfast. This is an extortionate price for a breakfast there it can not be justified . I feel we paid enough for the room that it shlukf have been included.

Just spent a very enjoyable couple of days in the beautiful Vaughan Lodge in Lahinch. This is a family run hotel and you can tell the owners take pride in the property and in taking care of their guests. There is attention to detail in everything - in the food, which is first rate, to the decor, which is comfortable and inviting and in the interaction with the guests which is genuinely warm and welcoming. Micheal and Maria Vaughan are definitely ‘hands-on’ owners and are there to ensure operations run smoothly. Michael is the third generation of Vaughan Hoteliers in Lahinch and the next generation is showing impressive industry also obviously having learned from the best. Every one of the staff is similarly warm and helpful. This is a great location for a weekend break, romantic getaway or a Golfing break with the hotel 5 minutes walk from the Lahinch Links Course where the Irish Open was played in 2019. The property is 10 minutes walk from the centre of town but all the better for it as it is not troubled by the noise of late night revellers. Give this gentile option a try on your next trip to Clare.

My wife and I had an overnight stay here, primarily for a visit to the nearby cliffs of Moher. We were given an upper room, which was huge, well appointed and comfortable. Great range of food for dinner, and good selection for breakfast. Staff throughout were friendly and helpful.

Just home from a 2 day staycation in this fabulous hotel. Our room was perfect , a large comfortable bed , excellent bathroom with the best shower I have ever been in and every amenity in the room to enhance the stay . The Hotel is at the edge of Lahinch town and a 5 minute walk to the golf course, towncentre or beach . Lahinch is the perfect location for exploring all the wonders of Clare like The Burren ,The Cliffs , Mr Trumps golf course,Lahinch Golf course ,surfing and many other activities and venues too numerous to list . The Hotel staff were excellent and nothing was a problem and then to top it off the food is quite simply amazing . I would travel the three and a half hours just to have dinner and then drive home again . I can't recommend this hotel highly enough.
