About Us


Welcome to Vaughans. This historial building has been a pub for over 100 years. Nestled in the picturesque village of Kilfenora, the Gateway to the Burren, Vaughan’s is now a Pub, Restaurant, Guesthouse, and Wedding Barn.

New owner Patrick O’Connor is keen to ensure the tradition and reputation of Vaughan’s continues for another 100 years.

Your home away from home, use our perfect location to explore what the Burren has to offer, the coastal routes of the Wild Atlantic Way, and all our hidden gems.

Home of the infamous Kilfenora Ceili Band, enjoy the great atmosphere in our pub, with traditional Ceili music sessions every Friday and Sunday night.
