"I particularly wanted to commend The 19th Lodge (formerly The 19th Green)
B&B in Ballybunion to you and your colleagues -- it was like staying in a
brand-new luxury inn directly across the street from the clubhouse (5-minute
walk -- I did it twice). The proprietors, Mary and James Beasley, were
delightful and incredibly accommodating. I can't recommend them enough."

Pam J Wood, June 2003

10/06/04 “The B&B’s we stayed at while holidaying in Ireland were all good. The best one of the bunch, however, was The 19th Lodge at Ballybunion. This B&B is right across from the Cashen course and probably an 8th of a mile from the club house entrance. Extremely convenient. James and Mary Beasley could not have been nicer. The accommodations were first class, large rooms, palatial bathrooms with excellent showers and bathtub/jacuzzi, a home well appointed in every respect. Breakfast was excellent both mornings we were there, and it was a fabulous experience staying at The 19th Lodge – best accommodations of the trip.”

Brenda and I made it home to North Carolina fine and I felt compelled to
send you a note to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at The 19th
Lodge. We are members of The Old Head Golf Links and therefore we have
traveled to Ireland for several years and without a doubt The 19th Lodge is
our favorite place to stay in Ireland. The rooms are beautiful with very
spacious baths and the best shower in Ireland. The breakfast menu has many
great choices but my favorite would be the French Toast. The quite
atmosphere always provides a good night rest and some of the best links golf
in the world can be found right across the street. Your accommodating
personality is delightful and I look forward to our visit next year.

Thank you for the wonderful stay Cora and I had with you on Monday evening
July 12th. The 19th Lodge is so beautiful and well appointed it should be a
must place to stay if you are golfing at Ballybunion. The rooms are the
largest and most comfortable I have stayed in on many golfing trips to
Ireland and Scotland over the years. Because of the closeness of the golf
course, The 19th Lodge is the most logical place to stay on a golfing
vacation to Ballybunion. Everyone was so helpful and gracious. I give you
five stars for service and the best place to stay in Ballybunion.

It is not often that I feel compelled to write to a hotel or B&B after a
stay; in fact, this may be a first. On our trip to Ireland last month, we
stayed in several different establishments and all four of us agreed that
The 19th Lodge was far and away the best of all. The concern to detail and
hospitality that you and James showed us was more akin to relatives or
friends than innkeepers. If I have the opportunity to refer someone to you,
you can be sure that I will do so. And if we find ourselves returning to
your area, we know where we will stay in Ballybunion. Thanks again for
contributing to our wonderful memories of Ireland.

Mary, just a quick note to again say "thanks" for hospitality during our
stay. We very much enjoyed our stay with you, and look forward to coming
back to Ireland, and staying with you. We will recommend you to all our

Just a note to tell you how very much Anne and I enjoyed our stay with you. The 19th lodge is a perfect setting - absolutely beautiful. I would come back tomorrow if I could, but I can't. However, I will aim for next spring. The acommodations, breakfast and friendship were far more than expected. Best to you and your wonderful family and to Pepper. We already miss all of you.

Anne and George McGugin

James and Mary,
Thank you once again for your hospitality during our recent stay at your lodge. You have a great location next to Ballybunion and if I hear of other people going over to Ireland for golf or a visit I will recommend your Lodge to them.

Thanks again for the great breakfasts we had during our stay.


Brian Berger

Dear Mr & Mrs Beasley,

I want to thank you so much for making me feel so welcome at the 19th
Lodge during my stay a few weeks ago. It was a memorable weekend for me,
and the wonderful hospitality you showed me made the weekend even better.
The service quality was outstanding. I loved everything about the 19th

Thank you again and I hope to return to the 19th Lodge someday.

Hope all is well.

Brendan Sage


How is my favorite Irish proprietor? Although I can't commit to anything yet for 2005, I want to let you know how much we ( family and golfing buddies)enjoyed our stay with you last month. No question about it , our stay with you and James was the best in Ireland or Scotland. I am praising your hospitality to all my golfing friends. I know I'll return, but not sure when. If you should come to Southern California, you let me know, You and the family will always be welcome in my home. I only hope that I could do half as well as you and James in hosting you.

Ted Krug.


Dear Mary,

We wanted to express our sincere thanks for your hospitality during our trip to Ireland this past September. It was our first trip to your beautiful country and the highlight of our trip was playing the Ballybunion Golf Course and staying at your great lodge. The rooms were the nicest of any we stayed in on our vacation. Your showers are the best in Europe! And your hospitality was the best of all. We expect to be back for the Ryder Cup in 2006 and your lodge will definitely be on our itinerary. In the meantime we tell all of our friends who travel to Ireland that they have to visit The 19th Lodge in Ballybunion.

We are looking forward to our next trip.

Yours truly,

Gary & Susan Bardell

Calgary, Canada
