Honestly the outside of this hotel does not entice you in ......but once inside the staff at the front desk (Debbie) and her colleagues are so warm and normal you feel right at home. I regularly stay here and I could not endorse this hotel enough ...The bar restaurant us old and dated and badly designed but the food is... More

Myself and my fiancé stayed in the radison blu in Athlone on Friday night. And we were both very unimpressed. The hotel it's self was very basic not very clean and the breakfast the next morning was dreadful. It was cold and not fresh and when I ordered fresh eggs as the ones that were out did not look appealing... More

Popped into "The Lodge" for Sunday carvery lunch. Not been there for a V long time. I could see from some familiar faces that the Lodge still has some loyal customers. The restaurant room could do with some major decorating but the value, quality and quantity of food was excellent. This is an old establishment that for sure has seen... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights because some friends were getting married at the hotel. We had a room on the ground floor in the main hotel building. Overall the hotel was fine and reasonable value for money at the rate we paid. The room could have been lovely if it had repairs to the cosmetic damage. The... More

I have been an on/off customer over years - but found that things have stagnated to an extent that needs to be addressed. Location and rooms are ok. But breakfast and bar menu definitely need a change for the better. The chicken wings I ordered when watching a football match on TV in the bar consisted of a thick layer... More

I stayed two nights at the Shamrock Lodge, and found it very comfortable. The people that work there are great - and I truly believe they want their guests to be happy. The wi-fi is in the process of being upgraded, so it works in some rooms, and not in others. It does, however, work in the common areas. Some... More

Having recently checked out from the Shamrock Lodge I found myself disappointed. This was my 3rd stay here in a year. I would usually stay in the Shamrock Lodge while in Athlone as its romote and peaceful. On arrival at reception I was not greeted and or politely said hello too. I was just told I had to pay on...

Stayed for 2 nights, Monday to Wednesday, very peaceful stay, breakfast wasn't something to shout about, staff very nice, nicest staff member was the younger barman. Food in bar was lovely, would stay again. Wifi could be better for a hotel.
