This hotel located on the main road is very close to the Lahinch Golf Course. The rooms are very large and comfortable-well furnished and appointed. The Vaughan Lodge has a terrific staff and they are helpful in every way. Can highly recommend eating in their dining room. The food is excellent.

We chose Vaughan Lodge for its proximity to the Burren, the distinctive ancient rocky landscape compelling for photographers and walkers. The well...

This is a wonderful hotel. The rooms are very big. Beds are firm. Showers are nice but in the tub. There is a drying room for golfers to use for wet clothes. The breakfast is very nice with a lot of selections. The staff is wonderful. I left a bag in Enniscrone and Linda arranged a taxi to bring it...
