Nothing change from last year, staff still efficient both at reception and in bar. Hotel still clean and comfy with good showers. We had really nice room this year. It really helps to relax before heading out and after. Xmas lights outside make it even more cozy. Hope to book next time for longer stay.

My wife and I just returned from a Dealrush break at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel. It is a very nice hotel with beautiful hotel rooms and located within a 10 minute walk of the town centre. To say that the staff were friendly and welcoming is an understatement. The only small criticism is that the hotel rooms are a little... More

A friendly hotel, clean, quaint and an easy walk into town. However in the dark with the roads of Athlone kind of curvy it was very hard to find. The breakfast room was nice and old fashioned, the lobby is pleasant. The hotel staff were friendly. I liked it there.

If you book a deal on another website they loose your booking was an absolute nightmare if I'm honest. The girl at check in and Staff are nice apart from the owner he really should stay behind the scenes as he has zero customer service and that's the main reason I wouldn't return.
