“Good Place to hang your hat for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We stayed there for the price and the hotel was really good. We were there for a Christian Motorcyclist Association Rally and the rooms were good, clean, and up to date. The down side and this true for a lot of hotels in Europe, no wash cloths.

Room Tip: If you like a wash cloth, you'll need to bring your own.

I am originally from Athlone but have lived in Sydney for a decade we chose to have our wedding reception this May 2014 at the Shamrock Lodge, I can highly recommend them, their hospitality, service and accommodation is the best I've experienced on both sides of the ocean, our Australian guests are still raving about the Shamrock Lodge and their service,it's the only place to stay in Athlone!

There's a lot to love about this place including the location, the price, the friendly reception desk people, the clean, clean room and the bathroom having not just a shower, but a bath. We stayed 5 nights and are thankful we did. I hope, however, that it isn't a good place going downhill. One day the elevator was out of order, one day the reception area toilets were out of order. All five days all drink machines were out of order. The Shamrock Lodge billboards feature a bride on a swing. 4 of the days the swing was a tangled mess and we watched a dad with two kids try to solve it. The first night we were there, there was a 40th party. When we left, there were still bits and pieces from the decorations on the front entry sidewalk. None of those bothered us a lot, but they make me wonder ...

Booked a Lidl break for €49 , 1 night B&B and 1 course evening meal. This did not matter to the warm friendly staff who treated all their guests equally. Ian (Locke) was extremely helpful. The accommodation was first rate and the food delicious . There was good choice for both the evening meal and breakfast. Would definitely stay again.

Booked the apartments for my sisters hen party, 4 apartments in total, hotel was great in organising wime glasses in room etc, as i knew we had dinner at 6pm & the girls would have to get ready after the activity i rang the hotel in advance to confirm check in time which was 3pm, perfect as we would be arriving then, i decided to check everyone in as would be easier then 16girls in reception, arrived at 3:10pm & was told only 2 apartments were ready & other 2 would take another hour, was annoyed as this would put is back on time & stressed me out more trying to get everyone organised! But it happens & they were very busy! As i was walking to my apartment, 4 cleaners were standing outside chatting & having a cigarette & complaining in general... Not at all professional! A nice lady from reception then came running over to us at 4pm with the other keys... I then booked 2 mini buses for 6pm to go to town for dinner but they were 20mins late, in total we were 45mins late for our dinner reservation, thankfully they understood my stress! Cant fault the apartments in any way, they were lovely, clean & modern & very spacious! Breakfast buffet was perfect, service was great. Just had to knock off 1 star for the cleaning staff
