Can't say enough about the Vaughan Lodge! The rooms were clean, spacious and we had a great view of the golf course/water. The food (and coffee) was delicious and we loved relaxing in the salon area (had my first hot whiskey...yum!). Above all, the staff was extremely friendly and couldn't do enough for us, especially once they found out that our luggage didn't arrive for 2 days. They assisted us with contacting the airlines, provided toiletries, etc. I would highly recommend the Vaughan Lodge.

A warm welcome awaits all who come to the Vaughan Lodge Hotel in Lahinch, Co. Clare Ireland . Wonderful staff, cuisine and luxurious accommodation. We highly enjoyed our five day stay at Vaughan Lodge. The rooms are very clean, ample space in the bathroom, and the power shower was fantastic. Free wi-fi is a great bonus.! The breakfast each morning, was top class not to mention the superb evening dinners. It's a short walk to the main street in Lahinch and there is parking at the lodge. Thank you Marie and Michael for making us so comfortable and special in your beautiful hotel that we did not want to leave!!!!!!. For those who like to read there are plenty of interesting books to browse and read.

I have travelled a lot and tend to be skeptical of glowing reviews, but this one actually lives up to the best reviews. The hotel is just around the corner from the golf course and perched up on a hill to provide a view of the golf course and a bit of the water from the front of the property. Rooms are well appointed and clean, but the most memorable parts of the stay were the food and service.
It appears that this is the premier restaurant in town for the locals as well as visitors and excellent. Make sure you take advantage of this kitchen when you are in Lahinch.
The staff take customer service seriously and proffered advice and maps without our even asking. If we return to the region, we will definitely be staying here again.

Reviews looked good and we booked on the strenght of this. We were not disappointed, the place lived up to the best reviews. The restaurant exceeded our expectations, the whole package was superb, from the waiting staff to the food, everything was spot on. The fish main (halibut) was as good as I have had anywhere and my wife's vegetarian dishes were exceptional. Hats off to Mr. Coffey and all the staff.

It wasn't a busy night when we were there but the ambience was excellent and drinks by the fireplace were very enjoyable.

We would recommend this hotel to anybody who enjoys comfort and excellent food.

We checked out the hotel on the internet and the rates were much better than when we rang the hotel reception. The receptionist advised us to book over the internet.

The only drawback was the hum from a generator near to our room but this was turned off at some stage after we went to bed, so did not disrupt our sleep too much.
