Ireland's Rustic Lodges
Travel Blogs from Gold Beach
Six major rivers flow into the Pacific Ocean on this part of Highway 101 in Oregon and it feels like they crashed! The first storm of the Fall arrived - it is so wild with rapidly changing weather by the hour that we got very, very wet! A hot bath would have been very welcome today - instead the sun came out again and it felt as if the 70 degree …
... medium sized towns that felt like a ghost town. I planned to stop in Newport, Oregon, because earlier this year I had ridden into Newport, Rhode Island on the East coast (for a seafood lunch). Also, I like to be off the road by 5:00 pm when it becomes dark, and the timing for Newport was right. I found a hotel that was serving a Thanksgiving Dinner Buffet until 6:30 pm; after which they were only offering a plated turkey dinner in the bar. ...
We were so ready to leave Crescent City, CA.
Todd did a long bike ride and then we packed up and hauled ass out of there! The drive up the 101 is beautiful, but the tight corners and significant drop offs are freaking me out in the RV and often I have to duck into the back to not make Todd a nervous wreak. He laughs at what a wussy I am and constantly chastises me when I rock my entire body to the left or right when the road has ...
... as Bandon, checking out the coast all the way. Port Blanco lighthouse. Nice warmish day, but still cold unless out of the wind. Monday (today), wet wet wet again! Typical Oregon weather apparently. Kay & Paul bailed from the Jet Boat trip, but Graham & I decided to go anyway. What an awesome experience, 52 miles up the Rogue River on. Jet boat with 3 x 335 hp motors! They gave out jackets, blankets & tarps to use, luckily, because at the speeds we got up to sometimes, even the ...
... he made a comment about the small dog coming in! It was funny! With the price of admission to the place, you also get a skyway ride(a gondola), all the way to the top of whatever mountain it was that we were on. So we entered the tour and began to see some very interesting trees! There were redwoods that had fallen, and new trees had sprouted from the fallen ones, and were huge! There were also upright trees that had trees sprouting from their ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ireland's Rustic Lodges Gold Beach
Beautiful, comfortable and quiet
I love this motel!!! When you walk into the room all you smell is the wonderful aroma of cedar.
It is spacious and has a veiw of the Pacific you can see and hear. The log burning fireplace is warm and cozy.
The beach is a very short walk and the sound of the ocean from the room is so relaxing.
This is our 3rd visit and will stay again any time we are in Gold Beach.
By the way, there are no phones in the rooms, which is a nice break. You can use your cell phone. Messages can also be left at the main desk.
Now that they take dogs
A few years ago I had a friend come to visit from Ohio and I planned to take him to the coast. I traveled from Alaska to meet him here. I reserved a room ahead of time and when we arrived at the inn I was shocked to find out they would not allow my dog to be anywhere but in the car. I have heard from other Hotels that the Inn now takes dogs so I might try it again. I stayed in a cabin and it was rustic.
My wife and I have stayed at Irland's over 30 times in the last 20 years and the staff has always been curtious and helpful. We obviously love the place and the people.
Simply The Best
If I could live at Irelands Rustic Lodge year round I would. What a place to stay. It's so cozy and clean. I've stayed there over the past 15 years and enjoyed every minute. The staff, views of the ocean, trail to the beach, is by far the beat place I've stayed on the West Coast. The rates are very reasonable, especially in the Winter.
Many happy returns
My husband and I have stayed at the Irelands many times over the past 20 years. The staff is fantastic, the rooms are just beautiful and clean and they will always find some way to make everyone happy. We've always booked the same adjoining rooms for our kids and they've gone so far as to bring us microwaves during storms. The stone fireplaces are beautiful and we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Gold Beach. It's like our home away from home on our annual trips.
Loved It ... Will Return
Stayed 3 nights in the lodge during 3rd week of May 2004. Room was indeed rustic, but had all the basics, including a nice fireplace and a desk with a spectacular ocean view.
The so-called "older, heavyset woman" mentioned in an earlier review was nothing if not absolutely friendly and charming. When I worried about a computer connection she offered to let me hook up to the office phone. (There are no phones in the rooms ... part of the charm.)
We will return in a heartbeat!
It's Very Comfortable BUT...
My fiance and I recently stayed at Ireland's Rustic Lodges and found the first impression not good. There is an older overweight woman who works in the office who is awful. We arrived 15 min early for check in and she told us snarrly "Check-in is 1 oclock so the room probably isnt ready but you can go check" and hands me a key. She says hardly nothing to you and makes you feel like you are bothering her. I would have asked for directions to a nice restaraunt but feared I would be told to go away. NOT A NICE PERSON. However the rooms are cozy and give you a warm feeling, If you get a view they are great. I probably would go back if I could skip check in somehow. GOOD LUCK
Cute, quiet, and cozy cabins
I have stayed here about 10 times in the last 13 years and I have loved it every time. The cabins are all unigue most of them with old rock fireplaces. They are surrounded by beautiful gardens. The beach is a little walk down where you find colorful pebbles and shells of all shapes and sizes. If you are down to earth and don't expect alot of fancy and want some quiet time alone with your honey you will like it too. Emily from Southern Oregon
This will be our 3rd year staying at Ireland's. We would not stay anywhere else!!! Everyone is so nice and everything is clean. We especially love the location to the ocean and the Rogue River!!
Big, comfortable rooms
I really enjoyed staying at Ireland Rustic Lodge.
My friend and I were biking down the coast. It was a cold,
foggy, rainy day when we finally checked in to the lodge. The room was big and spacious. It had a fireplace that kept us toasty all night. Our room also had a beautiful view and deck that looked out onto the beach/ocean. The room was clean and the furniture was a little old but kept in good condition.
