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.

Needed somewhere at short notice, found the Shamrock Lodge, well equipped comfortable rooms, pleasant staff, and plenty of easy parking. Arrived late, and left early, so didn't sample the food, but sure it would be first rate in keeping with the rest of the hotel. Also reasonably priced for a larger town. Will stay again fir sure..

The Shamrock Lodge Hotel is in a beautiful setting with plenty of free parking. We stayed in what I think was called 'apartment' which was basically 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms a sittingroom with kettle and fridge in a building adjacent to the hotel not unlike a Masonete type. To me it was an inconvenience because the hotel was a walk... More
