Very nice rooms and excellent food with personal touch. Attention to details and customer friendliness was excellent. Close to beautiful cliffs of Moher. We liked the positive atmosphere and quiet setting.

This hotel surpassed all expectations. Warm welcoming staff at each meeting. Rooms great size and spotless as was bathroom. Breakfast was a wonderful experience and great start to day. As with everything here the great attention to detail and quality is their priority. The staff in the restaurant were polite, professional and a credit to the hotel.

This was my seventh trip to Ireland. The last four have included a stay at Vaughan Lodge! Reason one: Michael and his friendly staff. We had to leave early on our final morning and would not have time for breakfast. Michael wouldn't hear of it -- and opened the kitchen early for our group. Reason Two: Clean and comfortable, including...

Everything about this hotel says 5 star. Michael and all the staff just couldn't do enough for us. We return year after year. Best breakfast ever. Dinner consistently great. Several extra courses not mentioned on menu make it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Staff are friendly. They couldn't do enough for us. If I was asked for a suggestion I would...

Thank you for the lovely few words It is always a pleasure to have you stay. Unfortunately the Linen is outsourced and perhaps the commercial chemicals render the fabric a little hard. We will see what can be achieved before you return. If the Burren soap company can strike a reasonable fee you might have your wish.... Until next year.........

We just spent 3 days at Vaughan Lodge. The restaurant is a highlight and the best place to eat in County Clare (I believe). The hotel is really comfortable and with no spa/pool etc is for adults and golfers and for quiet break. It does this brilliantly.

Thank you Joanne and multi task is a key to our little hotel where we try not to say "No" to a service request.

We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our first anniversary meal at Vaughan Lodge in August. Michael & his team went beyond the call of duty to look after us.

Thanks James... That's a fair description of my life and passion for the small hotel that Maria and I built in 2005 and have worked tirelessly for that past eleven years to keep...
