We stayed here while visiting the Cliffs of Moher. It was located a short bus ride away from the Cliffs. The hotel was very comfortable, clean, and the best place we stayed while visiting Europe. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful--recommending several dinner options since their restaurant was closed that night. The breakfast was also fantastic. Would definitely...

Thanks for your lovely words I'm not too sure I would want to be located any closer to an airport - even though Shannon is a nice airport! The journey is a 70 mile round trip for a taxi so it will be expensive. Most guests are hiring a car or being driven so it is not an issue normally....

We stayed here for two nights because we were golfing in Lahinch and Doonbeg. The hotel is a great hotel. Small and intimate, well appointed, an excellent lounge and an outstanding restaurant. Plus add a staff that was always helpful and thoughtful. I mentioned to the person at the front desk that we had to leave for our 7:40am tee...

great to hear you enjoyed the visit. I believe that real service is expressed when the out of the ordinary request is fulfilled. Getting in earlier was only a small thing really, but I am glad it made your stay. I would do anything my team would suggest ( within the law!!) if it meant a happy guest!!

We loved this hotel which has a beautiful intimate lounge to relax in, the dining room is quiet and intimate also and the staff are simply fantastic.

We've stayed at Vaughan Lodge multiple times over the years and it remains one of our favorite places in Ireland. The rooms are perfect: comfortable beds, nice appointments, and the best high pressure showers - to top it off we could see the course at Lahinch and the ocean from our room. Breakfast includes a full buffet as well as...

What a great place to stay and eat. Lahinch is an easy walk from the hotel. The Restuarant has very high quality food and the people are truly service driven. Best part, hottest shower you can get after a cold or rainy day of golf. Well done all ways!
