One of Ireland's Best for Locals and Visitors

Wineport Lodge deserves its reputation as one of Ireland's best places to dine. The friendly laid-back atmosphere is half due to the always-friendly staff and half to the hotel's amazing setting on the shores of the inner lakes of Lough Ree at Glasson. The timber-frame building has floor-to-ceiling... read more

We had Sunday lunch last Sunday. Greeted by the owner of the wineport lodge which was nice. Got a beautiful table overlooking the lake. We had an 8 week old baby with us and were a bit worried would a new born be welcomed at such a high end place but this wasn't an issue. The food was beautiful I... More

Had heard great things about restaurant but overall we ( party of 4 ) were v disappointed. Limited / small menu, many items with €5 supplements. Breads (white and brown) very ordinary and basic. Tiny pesto dish for 4 people. Food unmemorable. Food expensive for what we got. Service very good

Driving back to Dublin towards the end of our stay in Ireland, we decided that the journey needed a break. Having no idea where to go my wife saw the lake and decided to investigate. We are so glad she did as Wineport Lodge hove into view and looked very inviting. After initially stopping for a quick drink we ended... More

Had dinner here with 3 friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The view is stunning. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious (try the cafe de Paris sauce). Loved the tasting dessert. Apple doughnuts and the candied peel were the suprise stars.

We had a nice table overlooking the lake. The waitress who looked after us was very nice and very professional. There were plenty of staff and they all seemed experienced and knew what they were doing. However, the owner/manager was shouting at them to 'do this, do that'. In a fine dining restaurant, you don't expect or need to hear... More
