Such a beautiful setting. Lovely room with a view. Staff can't do enough. Welcomed with birthday card and chocolates for my husband. Also no trouble to arrange GF breakfast. Fantastic outdoor hot tub terrace looking over the lake. Visited previously with mother and sister brought my husband for a treat this time. Highly recommend a visit!

Dinner: The food and the presentation on the table was absolutely fabulous. Steaks were cooked to perfection, even the "blue" to rare variety. The staff was very helpful and attentive to our needs. Breakfast: There was an extensive buffet and the menu provided all the necessary extras to make it a real treat in the morning. Overnight we stayed on...

Wow, what a truly great experience it was staying here for just one night for a special birthday. Great, quiet location on the waterfront. Huge rooms - all named after different types of wine - with fantastic uninterrupted views out over the lake. Our room also had a large walk-in wardrobe area for putting luggage and clothes. My wife had...

We took my mother and father in law for a two day midweek break (2 nights B&B plus 1 dinner). We arrived at the hotel early and our rooms were made available within half an hour.

Really enjoyed our meal, overlooking the lake, with the sun shinning. Expensive but worth it for special occasions. Staff were friendly. Food really tasty. Probably could do with a makeover inside. Always enjoy my visits there.

Nice hotel, really nice setting. Resonable service, but nothing spectacular except the prices. Extremely over priced for what is offered. We stayed in Cabra Castle the night before, which was a far superior hotel, a proper five star. It cost exactly 1/3 of the price of the wineport.

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.
