Legless In The Country: Logues Lodge, Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare

Logues Lodge
Main Street, Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare

I was only in the pub/restaurant part of Logues, not the hotel part, but the part of Logues which I did sample is a good pub to bring the kids for dinner. They have a decent selection of pub grub and there’s live music here at the weekends.

What has it got? 

Seating: Most of the tables here have moveable chairs and the tables are a nice height for a wheelchair.

Doors: The doors are easy to get through but you might run into a table as soon as you get through.
Ground: We have a nice mixture of tiles and wooden panelling going on in Logues.
Stairs: There is one slight raise at one of the doors into Logues pub/restaurant but there is a flat entrance too.
Bathrooms: There is a large wheelchair cubicle available in the ladies toilet and I have been informed that the same is on offer in the gents.
Spaciousness: When I was coming in and leaving Logues, I had to ask quite a few people if they could pull in their chairs so I could get through. While there is space for a chair, you will have to use your manners here to make your way to your table/bathroom/bar.
Helpfulness of Staff: The staff are super attentive here. Ask for help and I’m sure you’ll be tended to.
Parking: There is wheelchair parking available at the Spar across the road and there is plenty of street parking available.
Rating: 9/10
Why did it lose points? Logues lost one point because as soon as you get in the door, you meet a table and you have to get people to move.
