We decided at last minute to head to the seaside for an overnight stay in Lahinch. We had such a great time in Vaughan Lodge. The welcome from Michael and the team was everything that is great about Irish hospitality. The room for perfect and we had our 2 children with us. The team in the restaurant look after us so well and the kids were taken into the kitchen to meet with the chef. The overall feel of the place is relaxed and informal but with very sharp and attentive service. The breakfast offering is also top notch and with a par if not above many hotel offerings with fresh breads and pastries and fruits etc. We will definitely be back for more of the same.

Thank you kind Sir for your review
I am always wary that we might slip from a pedestal when I read a review as praise giving as yours, but that in itself is the control - we like to do well for our guests and you have given us encouragement to continue
Happy days and mornings and evenings ......

My golf buddy and I stayed at Vaughan Lodge in early June, 2013 for two days and nights. Everything about the lodge is wonderful, absolutely wonderful. The room we had was very clean, and everything in it seemed new. After coming off a miserable flight across the pond it was just the ticket for relaxation. But first, the receptionist did yeoman service getting my friend's cell phone to work in Ireland, she went way beyond what I would consider "normal" assistance. We took all of our meals there, but for lunch at the golf course which is about 1/2 mile away. The owner's omelets in the mornings were delicious, as were all of the meals there. The second night we each had filet of Irish beefplace I look, each was prepared to our particular specifications, and spectacularly delectable. The bar right off the lobby is a central meeting place after golf for the guests, and it is very well stocked, including some excellent Scotch whiskys not available in the USA. The views from the lodge are of the golf course and clubhouse, where you can watch the golfers head up number one. Vaughan Lodge is a very charming place with excellent staff, who are well trained and attentive, and with delicious food and drink, I ask you. What more could anyone ask for?

Just finished a 2 night stay at Vaughan Lodge with an eight person golf group. The facility is clean and modern in a good location close to the golf course and beach. Rooms were quiet. The entire staff and owner were excellent and went out of their way in a pleasing manner to accommodate all of our group's needs which were many. Would highly recommend.

What a pleasure it was to have you all stay.
We love it when our guests make requests - isnt that what hospitality is all about. If it was as simple as giving out the room key and taking your money we would not be in this business at all. Our challenge is to meet your needs and anticipate most of them in advance.
The friend/colleagues who work with me here Martina, Laura, Ylonah, Breda, Dee, Dorota, Kaisia, Krys, Dan, Carol, Christian, Shane, Bugunia and Paul all say thank you for your custom and for keeping us in employment in the place we love to live.

My family of 6 stayed here for one night in May 2013. The reception desk associates were FANTASTIC at everything that they do. They made the best suggestions for dinners and activities for the girls while the boys golfed at Lahinch. The rooms were clean and had all new EVERYTHING.

Loved this place, loved hanging out in the lounge area with the bar.

We would definitely return

A great place to base a tour of golf courses, the cliffs of Moher, the Burren, Lisdoonvarna and near enough to Limerick, Shannon Airport etc to make life easy. Well run, staff alert and well trained, the owner much in evidence, well presented rooms and well decorated modern feel all went to make a good couple of days.
Dinner was good too. Just watch for the alarming array of whiskies in the lounge bar..a dreadful temptation when in after dinner mode!

Room Tip: Ours was at the front, but noise wasn't an issue

It is never easy to restart a seasonal hotel each year and like all our seasonal hotel colleagues we try to match or better the service offered by year round professional establishments. We take great encouragement from this review and strive to deliver great care and heart in our service. The whiskeys are a culmination of the preferences of guests over the years. If we don't stock your favourite tipple we will aim to have it in the shelf for your next visit .
Thank you for your business
Michael
