Fodor's Review

Michael Vaughan is a fourth-generation Lahinch hotelier, and he and his wife, Maria, uphold the tradition splendidly in their Edwardian-style lodge—set at the quiet end of Lahinch, only a short walk from the busy village, it combines the facilities of a top hotel with the charm of a country house. The bar is table service only and has a club-like atmosphere, with plump leather and suede sofas in calming shades of gray and buff and a corner library. Half the bedrooms have views of the Atlantic, just across the road, and the rest look out onto green gardens. Rooms are large, with 6-foot, 3-inch square beds, with white linen comforters, dark-red throws and cushions, and effective reading lamps. Michael's own photographs of the surrounding area decorate the walls, and he and his staff are a fount of local information. In addition, the seafood restaurant is one of the best in town.
