Having visited this hotel for lunch and evening meals which were thoroughly enjoyed I decided to try the afternoon tea but was very disappointed with the quality of the sandwiches too thick with crusts left on the bread. Scones were dry as though they had been defrosted and reheated certainly did not appear to be fresh. The savoury scone was...

Wineport lodge is faultless! Have stayed a couple of times.. Gorgeous rooms & breakfast in the room as standard. Stayed in champagne suite each time, total & utter luxury but we also had a look at some other rooms which all looked just as nice! We ate in the bar and the food amazing, as was the service. Love this...

I had heard a lot about the quality and setting of the Wineport Lodge so arrived for dinner and an overnight stay with expectations... which were wildly exceeded! We had a really top class stay in a large and unique suite layout (too many hotels today are standard template layout), with champagne on our arrival and really top class service....

Have tried the wineport a few times for Sunday lunch. You're always guaranteed 3 things. Friendly staff, great setting, consistent food, but always painfully slow. Perhaps I'm missing the point of Sunday lunch, but when the resteraunt is half.full I can't understand what the hold up is

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights recently. On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff at reception. Check in was very efficient and we were given a room upgrade.

From the minute we walked in this little gem was top class. The location, the atmosphere, the staff, the food and the wine were the best you would get. Recently freshened up the restaurant and you can see the benefits. Could not recommend enough... top of the range

First time staying after telling ourselves for the last few years we would. Lovely welcome with complimentary hot whiskey on check-in which was just as well as it was the Winter's coldest night so far! This was the main reason we didn't take up on the complimentary outdoor hot-tub. The room was very comfortable and the lake view is even...

I've waited and waited to get here for dinner. And was it worth it? Absolutely! I enjoyed and savoured every single second here. From the romantic setting, to the surprise dessert for my birthday I can't find fault!! Now I will just wait until I get to stay overnight! Stunning venue amazing food kind staff and delicious cocktails!

came her over the christmas holidays for afternoon tea, the place is very cozy and the food was great, we stayed and relaxed and never felt rushed, the service was not good and we were waiting ages for some things but we were in no rush and it did not spoil the experience.

We visited for the 2nd time in June. Fantastic from start till finish. We were seated with menus and nibbles while our table was prepared. Beautiful view and they even supply blankets and seats outside to enjoy the lake view. Food was flawless. Cooked to perfection. Will definitely be back

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You'll feel the difference the moment you arrive. More than a hotel, this is a luxury lodge with a unique sense of warmth and comfort at every turn. Nestled on the banks of Lough Ree, in an idyllic setting surrounded by native woodland, Wineport Lodge is exceptional in both style and service. With hosts who instinctively ensure your every need is met, here luxury and comfort comes wrapped in easy humour and effortless hospitality. Blissfully located in the beautiful countryside of Athlone, Wineport Lodge enjoys an incomparable setting on the edge of Ireland's peaceful inland waterways. Its cedar clad, log-cabin-style exterior is matched with a tasteful, modern interior that reflects the warm and relaxed atmosphere across the lodge and its lakeside grounds. Famously delicious food is matched by genuinely friendly and expert service. An always interesting Menu changes seasonally with the most flavoursome local produce regularly appearing as a daily special. Rustic in style, unpretentious and always generous on the plate... At Wineport Lodge you're in for a dining treat. Each menu is accompanied by an electric, carefully selected wine list. Glasson Golf Club is just a short boat trip away, and a stroll around the lake begins outside our front door. Wineport Lodge was designed to be in tune with our stunning natural surroundings. It's all about having the maximum comfort with the minimum environmental impact. That's why you won't find a sprawling spa with pool here. What you will find though is nothing short of perfect. Two intimate treatment suites are just waiting for you with a range of VOYA treatments and therapies guaranteed to help you relax, rejuvenate and renew.
