they made a suprise party a great event the lay out of the rooms was very confusing
Its location was perfect, in the centre of Lahinch but slightly off the main street so no noise at night. The bar needs to be revamped.
Sorry but i would not recommentd this hotel. The walls are too thin and you could hear everything that was going on closing doors, walking dow coridors and the person next to you talking
staff very nice and helpfull. 100/100
Center of town. Good sized, well furnished rooms.Friendly efficient service. Excellent breakfast. No aircon in the rooms and the windows could only be opened a few inches. Noise till four in the morning from a night-club directly below our room!
Location and staff more entertainment needed in bar
The room was clean and spacious, the receptionists were pleasant and courteous and the hotel at large was clean and modern. Website led me to believe that the hotel over looked the beach and wifi throughout which there wasn't. The shower was poor.
Rooms were big and clean Breakfast was cold, service poor.
Location. Staff. Facilities. Shower/bathroom
The proximity to the beach and town was exellent, staff were lovely and really helpful We were staying in a room on the first night that was backing onto a nightclub, it wqasso loud and we couldn't sleep until the nightclub was finishred,we asked to be moved which we were but we didn't receive an apology or anything to compensate us.
The hotel is new and very nicely furnished with new beds and spacious rooms, clean bathroom We booked a tripple room but they only had a double when we got there as we were a little late arriving
Lovely clean modern hotel,friendly staff but a bit quiet.Not much atmosphere in bar maybe because of time of year. Quiet
Clean facilities. Beautiful views NO WIFI FOR ROOMS. Only available in main lobby. Not very convenient for international travelers. No one at reception. The staff seemed to be spread very thin. The receptionist is also the concierge, bartender and server. Bed was very hard.
size and comfort of room
Over all I really enjoyed my stay, the room - esp. for a "sole" traveller was really good. Its size was also a big plus for me, I was dreading a busy pub with a few rooms attached Breakfast on sunday was very good Tell the kitchen to take off the mashed peas from the salmon. My first room had no hot water and I had to push for another room - and I was staying two nights!! Reception staff did not have great local knowledge - I heard a family being recommended a walk along the cliff of Moher when they really wanted a beach for the children to run wild on.Breakfast on Saturday morning was not great
The receptionist was really friendly and very helpful on arrival. The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel bar was very quiet.
Only spent one night there, but the hosts were amazing! Arrived very early and asked for a spot to leave our luggage. They were nice enough to let us go straight to our room! Just next to two great pubs and a few minute walk to shops and a few minutes more to the dock. Lovely town, easy to find, and great breakfast. Super nice staff...I could go on. Definitely going to visit them again! The only negative is that we only had one night there. Nothing bad to say about the place.
Brand new hotel only 4 years old with pubs and restaurant close by. Modern decore, new furniture, quiet room and comfortable beds. We had a restful nights sleep. Gus O'Connor's pub is 5 - 10 minute walk away (though you will need to bring along a flash light if you choose not to drive there after dusk) Free Wifi was only available in the hotel lounge and unreachable from our room 2 rooms away from the lounge. Not sure if this was because we stayed during the off peak season (November) when the hotel was mostly vacant.
The Hotel Doolin is a new and trendy hotel. It is fairly new and tries to use a green approach to doing things. Although its a fairly new property the hotel does have a few downsides. We had a problem the first night we stayed there with the shower drain. Basically it wouldn't drain.To make a long story short we switch rooms for our second night and when we got in there the sink wouldn't drain. This was a minor inconvenience. However my thought is this: With the hotel being fairly new I would think it would be better maintained. You can't exactly clean a sink or shower without running the water, so the cleaning staff should notice it and get it fixed before customers check in.
Very clean and central to the Burren Bit pricey
the breakfast was tasty!!! no
Hospitality and friendliness of staff and lovely hotel.
Had a less than ideal stay at a hotel in Belfast the night before and gave it a bad rating. Here's what I wrote at the end of that review: "The next night I stayed at the hotel Doolin near Galway. Walked to my room, given a newspaper, asked if I needed a wake up call, given a free drink at the bar, breakfast included, plenty of parking, a beautiful clean modern lobby and a wonderful bed, all for less money. The contrast was remarkable..." Absolute pleasure to stay at Doolin. Nothing. Fantastic place.
The hotel looked very bland from the outside and it was out of characterwith the traditional village surroundings. The interior, however was very classy and well designed and the room was large and elegant.
The location was perfect to visit such places as the cliffs of Mohar and the Burren.
Best hotel we stayed in Ireland. Staff were great, hotel clean and very well maintained.
There are several B&B nearby, but this offers a nice alternative. Connected to a restaurant and pub and with a nice lobby area, good alternative if the weather isn't good. Not quite walking distance to other pubs, but a very short drive on a very quite road, these are still good options.
from the greeting to departure a sense of quiet effeciency. room was little warm when heating came on.......but otherwise perfect.
Amazing staff.Freindly and helpful, they really put you at your ease and made you feel at home
The proprietor was very friendly and helpful and she helped us book a tour of the beautiful surrounding area with a local family. The house itself was beautiful- the best B&B we found in our travels through Ireland.
This is a great B&B. I highly recommend it. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was really lovely. Full Irish-- lots of fresh fruit, homemade scones, Irish bacon, eggs, and more. Best of all the coffee was strong. Great gardens. No.
The bed was amazingly comfortable with lovely sheets. Good service and communication prior to and during our stay. Very informative on the local area. Good location to the Cliffs of Moher and some pretty nice views (when it's not raining) Shower was a bit small
we stayed here for three nights and had a wonderful stay. The White Family who run this B&B were so friendly and made our stay with our two young children a wonderful visit to this beautiful area of Ireland. Would stay again here when we return to Ireland. They went out of their way to make it a wonderful stay at their beautiful B&B.
Excellent all round - we loved our time there. Beautiful views, comfy beds, great breakfast. Thankyou Mary!
The personal and familiar atmosphere and a good breakfast. Would be great if there were glasses in the rooms and bathrooms.
Owners were friendly and the location to the Cliffs of Mohr excellent. The morning breakfast was plentiful and tasty. There was a security motion detector in the bedroom which lit up every time you turned over. It caused a bit of disturbance throughout the night.
definately the innkeeper, Mary. she is wonderful! it is like staying with family!
Very nice welcome from the family
It was very peaceful in a beautiful part of the country
Friendly welcome, tea served. The cleanliness, everywhere. Very comfortable.
The environment, seclusion, the view, the old ruin in the garden
The evening dinner was wonderful. The warm welcome and family presence in the hotel were great! The barman added greatly to the Clare experience. It is a charming place with an old world feel. The scenery is fabulous and the pleasure of sitting in the hotel watching the sun go down was just wonderful. Easy access to the beach at Fanore, Walking in the Burren, Doolin and the Cliffs of Moher!
the view of the countryside the room was cold & dampish
The view of the coast, the serenity, the beauty - the sense of another time, but with really good food
The position and atmosphere. The instant coffee
Breakfast, view, staff Outdated decor, spiders
We spent three nights in July 2010 and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Martina and John have a wonderful establishment. Our room was exceeding comfortable and clean. Breakfast and dinner were delicious and varied ( I want the pea soup recipe! ) The staff were friendly and very helpful. It was nice to relax by a peat fire at the end of a day of exploring Clare County. Not only would we recommend it to others but we anticipate returning for a longer stay. I can honestly say that in years of travels, I have never enjoyed a stay as much as this.
Room service charg for breckfast $9 was a bit high
The food was fantastic and we could not have eaten there every night very large portions Possibly menu could have been changed
Quiet elegance, superb restaurant, welcoming owner.
The hotel is lovely. The breakfasts were scrumptious. The owner was very available and helpful.
beautifully appointed-fantastic food (locally sourced) lighting could be a bit better -by bedside
Made very welcome by the owners. The food was the best I ever experianced in a hotel. Will stay again on next trip to West Clare.
It was very comfortable and quite. Mrs. Sheedy went out of her way ,helping us plan our trip to the Aran Island.
Massive nice room. Friendly staff. Lovely supper and breakfast.
The lady proprietor was very welcoming.The food was excellent and the room a real surprise: large and comfortable.
I liked the location. And the breakfast was excellent. It was too modern...didn't feel like Ireland.
Beautifully designed luxurious hotel with a very friendly owner.He gave us great information to facilitate visits.We got the best room. We liked the breakfast.One of our best ever hotels.
Restaurant was excellent although expensive. Owner/manager was very helpful and courteous. Some things were lacking. Although only a 4 star hotel the prices justified 5 star facilities such as dressing robe and slippers and tea making facilities. Also felt bedding was fairly inferior.
Short walking distance from the beautiful surfing beach at Lahinch. Spacious comfortable rooms, with stunning local photographs throughout the hotel, attracting us to visit the Cliffs of Moher and other local beauty spots.
~The dinner was excellent and the waitress was very friendly When I arrived at reception, although someone saw I was there, I was completley ignored.
Had an excellent stay. Best breakfast. Wonderful service from all the staff. A really well run establishment
good location, friendly staff especially in the restaurant. room was very comfortable, especially the bed. best bed have ever slept in, of all the hotels we have slept in.
Liked freindly staff and lounge/bar area was very cozy and comfortable. Liked being able to walk into town. Enjoyed breakfast too.
The hotel was exactly how it was described and the photographs reflect an accurate account of the look of the hotel. The rooms were very spacious, ask for a sea view! We found the staff very friendly and the breakfast was excellent. I felt the prices in the bar were a little expensive, over 10 euro for two drinks. Would recommend the hotel accomodation and food but would rather take the short walk to the village to visit the local pubs.
We were only there for a brief evening prior to a day of golf. The accomodations were good - breakfast very good. No
The staff at the Vaughn Lodge were so patient with my family. We were on our first vacation with our infant son and the staff embraced us and our chaos! They frequently went above and beyond to help us with our son. We would definitely stay with this amazing staff again!
