This was a very nice start to our break, we found the staff very cheerful and helpful, we had an initial problem with our first room and reception were able to move us without any trouble. The room was spacious and had a modern décor, nice to have additional chair seating, often there is just a stool and one chair,... More

This was a lovely hotel. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The lodge was just great. It was ideal for our family. The evening meal was so tasty and there was a good choice both for the adults and the children. There were plenty of places to sit and relax. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel....

The Main course was Ham and Turkey stuffing, Minus the stuffing (was never received) the gravy was very textured. The Dessert was a Trio of Cheese cake, Profiteroles, and Fresh cream. The... More

I recently returned to The Shamrock Lodge and was delighted to find such a warm welcome, comfortable accommodation, excellent value and lovely food. When I was a child my family used to stop here for afternoon tea which included beautiful hot buttered scones - a real treat as far as we were concerned - and the current staff provided excellent...

Room was ok and large. Bathroom was very dim however and needs ventilation to prevent damp. had to open the french doors as the frames started to weep. Breakfast was also average. Free parking and not too far to walk into town.

Meals were lovely and the staff friendly and helpful. I was a bit disappointed with the room though. The ensuite shower didn't drain properly, so water had seeped out into the room and had damaged the carpet. The carpet was damp when we checked in. Aside from that the bed was large and comfortable. Over all a satisfying stay.

After some confusion regarding a booking we found the staff to be very attentive to our needs. The Wedding we attended was excellent, food, decor, staff and atmosphere. We all had a great time. Shamrock would have received 5 positive circles but for their very poor Wi-Fi. No wi-fi in the apartments and we could not connect in the Hotel.
