“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

We stayed at the 19th Hole Lodge for several nights last week and were thoroughly impressed with the accommodations and service. Mary and Jim are some of the nicest people you will ever meet and they were always there to take care of our needs. The rooms were spacious and there was even an air conditioning unit, which is rare in Ireland. The location right next to Ballybunion Golf Club was excellent as well. I highly recommend the 19th Hole Lodge!

Mary and James were wonderful hosts. Located directly across from Ballybunion, this lodge was immaculately clean, cozy and the breakfast was outstanding! The 19th should be on all golfers Ireland itineraries.

And the 19th Lodge is just as outstanding as always. Mary and James make you feel like one of the family. The rooms and breakfast are top notch. Access to Ballybunion golf course could not be better. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

This lodge was ideal. It has a beautiful setting and it is very clean. The owners are so nice and were so helpful during our stay here. The breakfast was freshly cooked and there were a selection of fresh fruit and cereal available. I would stay again and highly recommend it to anyone.

Spent two nights with Mary and James at the 19th hole lodge. Place is great and location is awesome. James and Mary were more than accommodating and made you feel as if you were home. Made reservations for us every night and provided great information on the town. Across the street from the course which has awesome views. I will certainly be back to stay again.

Mary and James are quite possibly the nicest folks I have met. They are so welcoming and made us feel so comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic, the rooms are very spacious and the showers are out of this world. There is no other place you should stay when visiting Ballybunion.

Mary and James have a wonderful lodge for golfers as well as other tourists. The rooms at the 19th Lodge could not be more comfortable! The best shower water pressure I've ever seen in a hotel! Mary and James were so friendly and accommodating, and even offered us a home cooked breakfast the morning of our round at the Old Course at Ballybunion. All in all, a wonderful experience. Great rooms, great service, great location and most importantly, great people!! The 19th Lodge at Ballybunion could not be more highly recommended!
