The location, our room, the restaurant, quiet relaxing bar and above all the staff were fantastic. If you're looking for a couple of days somewhere to unwind, relax and smell the coffee, Wineport Lodge does exactly what is says on the tin !

We were upgraded to a mini-suite that had a fantastic view of the River Shannon. The room was tastefully appointed. From the moment our group (2 other couples with whom we travel frequently) were met at reception and until she left each one of us at our individual rooms she showed us all of the available facilities (from spa to free bikes for local use). That does not happen very often. Our dinner was a very enjoyable experience with excellent food. Did not get to enjoy the grounds because it was raining (not unexpected in Ireland.)

Room Tip: Choose a second floor room - better views of River Shannon

Decided to end our honeymoon off by staying in Wineport for one night with dinner, amazing room with great views. Lovely box of chocolates and card left in room congratulating us. Cosy small bar with lovely views. The food at dinner was lovely and no supplements on the steak. Only negative waiting sometime on the main course. Complementary breakfast to the room.

Dear 49lornat

Thank you for taking the time to post your kind review. I am delighted you choose to stay with us on the final days of your honeymoon. The little touches are so important and I do hope they made your stay an extra memorable one. I'm happy you enjoyed dinner and I do apologize for the wait on main course. We feel our guests should have breakfast the way they want and where they want it so why not have it from the comfort of your own room or balcony.

Do come see us again
Kind regards
Norma

We stayed here for a short midweek break in October and cannot wait to return again for a longer stay. The staff were lovely and really make you feel welcome. The room itself was faultless.... beautiful views of the lake from the balcony and one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in! As for the food....exceptional is all I can say. On that note - do not skip breakfast as it was one of the best hotel breakfasts I have ever had. This hotel is highly recommended if you are looking for a peaceful beautiful location coupled with great staff and rooms that make you want to stay for days on end. Well done to management & staff of the Wineport Hotel.

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.
