I live in Italy and my new husband lives in Dublin. We are not Spring chickens and have had a whole lot of experiences in our lifetime. This September we were married, had our Reception and overnighted with our guests in the Wineport Lodge.
It was a dream. Celine and her staff got it all so right.
They participated wholeheartedly in the whole event, with joy and discretion. Celine was there from the moment I arrived to prepare; she pinned bottonholes, led my son, daughter and I down to the Harbour Room for the ceremony, placed my bouquet into my shaking hands and generally was wonderful.... you would think it was the first wedding she had organized, such was her enthusiasm.
The food was exquisite, the table setting beautiful and the service at table exemplary.
The Lodge itself is mirrored in a beautiful lake; emphasis is definitely on discrete top quality. Staff are trained to the highest levels, the food is 5 star quality and the warmth you feel from the moment you enter is genuine.
You want to feel pampered? Go for a romantic week-end. Their fresh lavander, tea-light and champagne bath experience is the end of the world! It would rekindle the dead!!
A meal there is a harmonious experience of excellent cuisine, good wine, relaxation and satisfaction that only top notch service can provide.
Am I biased? Yes, I am. I have just had the most wonderful event of my life there and they made it perfect

Room Tip: Any suite and you will be happy

While the surroundings and venue itself are luxurious it was the staff who made our stay memorable. We enjoyed every minute of a truly relaxing and opulent break. Thank you.

7 of us enjoyed a delicious Sunday lunch for my father's 80th birthday on the 18th of September. I must say, I couldn't fault them. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is beautiful, the welcome was warm and the service was excellent, despite the restaurant being extremely busy. We enjoyed drinks in the cosy bar with the log stove, before being shown to a very nice table situated in an alcove in the main restaurant. The birthday cake was brought out bang on cue. Having booked and organized the meal mostly by email from England, I was relieved to find that it all went very smoothly on the day!

I am still savouring the absolutely excellent aged steak I enjoyed at Wineport last month - the finest in my memory, and I've had a few good ones. The hotel restaurant overlooks the lake and is a very relaxing place to be - the tables are spacious and set well-apart from each other, and the service is really on the ball. And the rooms are great too - bright and spacious, with terraces right over the lake, very comfortable beds and the luxury of underfloor heating. Thank you very much to everyone at Wineport for making our short stay very sweet indeed.

Spent one night in this great little hotel. Its small but very nice. The staff here are amazing. They take service to a new level. Ray - the owner came to join us - and he too talked about service and how committed they are to it. Food great, meeting room great. Strongly recommend for meeting of up to 20 people.

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the lake - so no bad room. You might ask for a private balcony? Or..if you fancy...

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.
