We have just come back from spending a wonderful weekend break in this hotel. Rooms, food and service and the weather was great.

We were passing back from a day out in Galway. We stopped in Ballyvaughan and found Hylands. The staff were very friendly and a girl named Megan took our orderd she couldn't have been more helpful. The food was excellent and tasty. The barman Cian was very knowledgeable about the local area and a handsome young guy. We enjoyed his...

Not that there are many direct routes in North Clare, but it is really worthwhile to take the winding Coast Road, rugged as it is. As I passed the attractive venue of Hylands, I made the right decision to stop in- having a car park certainly helped. It's a warm welcoming place with excellent food and kindly service. There are...

They also own a great Italian restaurant next door which i would highly recommend. The staff could not have been nicer and a lovely full...

We stayed here as a last. Knute booking, a party of 5 including 2 babies. The family room was comfortable and spacious. It was great to have a bar and restaurant downstairs, with real fires. The menu was fine. We didn't have dinner there but the snacks that we had, and the breakfast, were lovely. Overall, I would have expected...
