Athlone, Ireland

This is a hugely underrated hotel, been here twice in 2 days, food fabulous, staff magnificent, Paddy and Alan hands on. It's remarkable they keep food so fresh for so many guests. The Athlone Credit Union 50th Anniversary was beautifully realised; location, decor, table layouts, the food in particular was first class. We were also at the Christmas Party night...

I was in Athlone for my graduation and was glad to spend some time at Shamrock Lodge Hotel. It is a quiet part of town just outside the town centre but not too far. It has beautiful greenery as you might expect in Ireland. The rooms are very well maintained and have a great ambiance.

Hotel room very nice. Very short staffed. Waited 1hour for a sandwich. breakfast was the worst I've seen in years. Athlone doesn't have a lot going for it. £129 for single room but at least it was warm

Dear Mrs Seligman, In relation to your comments, there are a couple of items that we would like to question. In relation to waiting one hour for a sandwich, we strongly refute this claim. All of your group arrived at reception at 12pm to check into rooms that were not available until 3.30pm. However we accommodated everybody on arrival. All...

We stayed in the two bedroom apartments in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel. The apartments were very spacious with a large living area complete with fridge, microwave and tea/coffee making facilities. The two double bedrooms were a good size with bathroom/ensuite attached. All roooms were very clean. We stayed here after a girls night out in Athlone. It was great value...

From the moment we arrived at reception right through to checking out the staff were smiling, welcoming and very, very helpful. This was a refreshing experience and possibly reflects the difference between a family run hotel and global chain.We were over all delighted with the experience, despite the fact that parts of the hotel are slightly shabby, our rooms were...

Nice welcome at reception. I had booked a family room which was very spacious, as well as clean, comfortable & quiet. We enjoyed a drink in the bar & although we didn't have bar food it looked very appetising. Bar staff were also very friendly. Breakfast was excellent quality although it's location from dining area a little awkward & could...

We booked this on the day and spent twice what we could have if we'd walked in. We got 'upgraded' to a suite which had the noisiest plumbing ever and was tired with some maintenance needed. In the middle of the night the fire alarm was triggered and we had no idea what was happening. Whilst the bed was clean...
