Stayed for one night at the wineport last week and really enjoyed our stay. The location is beautiful and perfect for a romantic night away. We stayed in a suite that was out of this world, really the nicest room I stayed in in Ireland. We had treatments in the spa and unfortunately I couldnt have mine, the staff couldnt have been nicer to me and really very accomadating. I wish I got the therapist's name but she was so lovely and deserves a special mention (her hair is black and in a bob!). Dinner was beautiful and well served, the manager came and spoke to each couple and I thought it was a lovely touch, made us all feel so special. The bar is small but perfect for a night cap and cuddle by the fire. Breakfast in bed (comp) completed this perfect stay. I will definitely be returning and recommending to friends. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Amazing! Attention to detail is spectacular. Cookies on arrival in the room to celebrate a birthday, fresh jug of milk in the fridge, glossy magazines on the coffee table, most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Stayed with my husband for one night in oct 12. Wished we could have stayed longer. Food was amazing and service was top class. Will return.

Cannot fault this place. So beautiful and romantic. Staff are warm and friendly. One of the best meals of our lives. I'm not a big steak fan but honestly best I've ever had, Melt in mouth. Room was cosy. Breakfast was very tasty. Will be back for sure.

My wife and I spend last weekend at the Wineport Lodge. A gentle drive from Dublin a little over 1 hour, the Wineport lodge is situated on the edge of a lake near Athlone. We enjoyed brilliant food and service through out out stay. Our room was very, very comfortable and the en-suite spotlessly clean.

All the staff at the Wineport where very welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much. The restaurant was full of atmosphere and the food fantastic.

I can't wait for the opportunity to return to the Wineport again, which I hope is soon.

This is a wee hidden gem. My partner and I stayed here mid week for a relaxing break. I booked the hotel a good month in advance. I had emailed back and forth about certain requests and all were met very graciously. On arrival we were shown to our room by the girl who checked us in. We entered the room and found a note from Norma, the general manager, stating she had taken the opportunity to upgrade us to a suite. The room was beautiful with a balcony and a view to die for. As organised, there was a bottle of champagne on ice and glasses in the fridge cooling. The water in the room was complimentary and it was also explained that we could order breakfast to the room free of charge. We thought this was an unusual but very nice touch and we made the most of it. There are 2 hot tubs outside which sit in a perfect position in front of the lake, so the view from them were amazing. We could have spent hours in there. The relaxation room beside the hot tubs was also a great idea. There were 2 reclined beds, tea and coffee making facilities and water, all complimentary. We chilled out mostly in the lounge area during the day, playing scrabble and having a few drinks. Wherever you choose to sit, whether it be by the wood burning stove in the lounge, or the wood burning stove in the sun room extension, you will feel relaxed and have that second to none view of the lake. The staff were very attentive and make you feel very comfortable. We also had dinner one of the nights in the restaurant. Again, an extremely nice setting with a view of the lake and the food delicious...... perhaps a little pricey but the choice for all courses, the presentation and the taste very impressive. We will most definitely return to this ideallic setting on the lake and spend more time here. I would highly recommend this hotel for a quiet, romantic, relaxing and very chilled break away from it all. It will be particularly blissful in the summer.

Room Tip: Ask for good lake view room or upgrade to the suite.....well worth it!!

I was lucky enough to get to spend a night here with my husband for my 30th Birthday. It's somewhere that I had always wanted to stay in and I was definitely not disappointed. We arrived to check in and were promptly shown to our room by a very friendly lady. We had booked a suite but were upgraded to the Captains Suite which was a huge surprise! It's a split level suite with 2 bathrooms, dressing room & separate seating area. It has a lovely balcony and superb views. We got complimentary homemade cookies in the room which were delicious.

Before dinner, we had a relaxing drink in the bar where we were given the menus and made our dinner selections. We were shown to our table shortly after and our starters arrived then. One thing I loved is that the waiters never had to ask who ordered which dish, they just knew. Everything is very professional and friendly. Food was of a very high standard and presented perfectly. Portions are very big, which for us is never a bad thing! Nothing worse than getting a tiny portion and leaving hungry. It's no surprise that Wineport get many awards of excellence.

The room was perfect and peaceful, ensuring a good night's sleep. It was lovely to wake up in such a large suite with spectacular views. Breakfast was also delicious with a huge selection of everything. I had tea which was actual tea leaves, rather than the usual teabag.

All in all we had a wonderful night which ended all too fast. We hope to be lucky enough to visit Wineport again this summer for our Wedding Anniversary!

We arrived on a chilly wet evening to Wineport Lodge and were warmly welcomed by a young lady who showed us to our room .What a room! It was large, warm and beautifully decorated with dressing room and large bathroom ensuite. We had a wonderful view of the lake and two large swans sailed past the window just to welcome us.
We had pre dinner drinks in a nice relaxed room and then ordered our dinner. The food was delicious and well presented and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
Lovely breakfast next morning and headed home.
I love this place and can't wait to go back and try out the hot tub and treatment room. Thank you for a lovely night.

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.
