“Exceeded Expectations”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

I held an event at the hotel last weekend, and had 24 people staying as part of my booking.
The hotel couldn't have been more helpful before and during the stay.
They are very eager to please and did their best to do anything I asked of them.
The rooms are beautiful as is the reception area, the hotel has a pretty modern antique feel in its decor with its luscious wallpaper and over sized furniture.
We ate both for dinner and breakfast in the hotel, there was plenty of selection and even though there was also a wedding function going on, our food arrived promptly.
Hotel beds are usually not my friend, but the beds in the Lodge were so comfortable that I would go back there for the beds alone!!!

The hotel did their very best to sort out any problems we had whether they were to do with the hotel themselves or something else, for example the bus company I had hired didn't turn up and the hotel receptionist did his best of try and find me an alternative company to take us on our journey.

I would highly recommend this hotel and would be happy to stay there next time I visit Athlone.

We stayed at the Shamrock Lodge last weekend while attending a family birthday. We ate in the bar for lunch and dinner and the food on both occasions was very good, plenty of it and reasonably priced. The staff in the bar area were excellent. The rooms are spacious and well kept.This would be our third or fourth visit and we have never had anything to complain about. All in all a very pleasant weekend.

Attended a wedding at the shamrock lodge. Live close by so didn't stay so can't comment in the rooms. The food and service at the wedding was very good though. The staff were friendly and attentive which is always a plus. We had a meal the next night in the restaurant and despite having another large wedding on the food was still lovely and good value.

Arrived to the hotel, and the lady on reception was very nice and friendly, as was Fintan in the bar. Ordered dinner, and it was lovely, with the service being very very genuine. got good nights sleep, and breakfast was lovely, although the lady looking after the breakfast room lacked in service compared to the others, but overall, it was lovelyl

Thank you Alan for the lovely stay. The apartments were great for our family. Perfect size giving everyone the right amount of space. Very nice showers. Staff were great, couldn't have been nicer. Enjoyed the great breakfast and of course had a lovely lunch, recommend the roast beef. Was able to walk to town comfortably and get back to enjoy a very cozy drink at the bar. We will be back

Nice hotel just on the edge of town, friendly people. Minor hick up when we arrived at 6.30pm, checked in and went to room to find that we were a bed short for my little boy, receptionist moved us to a family accommodation block. We decided to eat out and had a fantastic meal at the Prince of Wales bar/restaurant over the bridge. We did have breakfast in the morning, a great variety continental or full Irish all very well presented. All in all a nice hotel, good size clean rooms, a pleasant place to stay.

Just back from our 2 night stay in the Shamrock Lodge. Staff were very friendly and smiley from the time we checked in until checkout. We ate in the restaurant the first night, the menu was a bit limited but the food was good. The second night we ate in the bar and really enjoyed our meal. The food here is very homely which suited us for this weekend but if you're looking for fine dining I'd suggest venturing out somewhere in town.
The room and bathroom were lovely, had tea and coffee, tv, free wifi, comfy bed, was warm and had lovely big mirrors!
We had full Irish breakfasts both mornings with a choice of cereals, croissants, fruit, juices, smoke salmon, ham, cheese etc. You wouldn't need to eat lunch after this feed!
We barely left the hotel all weekend as we just wanted to rest and relax. Considering there was a big hen party there at the same time, we heard nothing and weren't disturbed once.

There is a beauty spa on site where I went for a massage. Michelle was the girl who looked after me. She was really nice and I'd recommend treating yourself if you stay here.

Getting away for a weekend is a real treat for us and we really enjoyed our stay here. We hope to get back for another weekend in the not so distant future.
