By some fluke, we happened upon the Wineport Lodge shortly before we were going to drive back to Dublin. We stopped and ate a very pleasant lunch at the lakeside, and as the weather was unusually good, we enquired about a room for the night, to stretch the weekend out a bit further. Luckily again, they had one free.
We were shown to our room by a very friendly staff member. And what a room for the price! A really stunning view of the lake, a balcony, a large very comfortable bed, brand new bathroom with heated floor, bottled water... I could go on. We were extremely pleased with virtually every aspect of the hotel. I believe there is also a hot tub on the roof, but we didn't use it. The whole experience was superb, and the proprietors should be proud of their staff, the lovely hotel, and magnificent location.
- 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.
