Booked a one night break away for a special occasion - we needed to relax and recharge the batteries. From the outset, we were very impressed with the hotel. Location on the waterfront was amazing, the room we booked was a "suite" and it was just fantastic - huge room, large very comfy bed and couch, amazing bathroom, lovely balcony. It's a pity about the weather... but the owners and staff of wineport can't change the weather (more's the pity!!)
We had a bite to eat in the bar and i cannot speak highly enough about the standard of food. It was so good that i couldn't wait for our dinner later that evening.
The food in the restaurant is in one word "AMAZING", would go back this minute for dinner! While the one night break is certainly not cheap - in recessionary times, it's hard to justify spending the money (can get a few nights break elsewhere for the same price!) it is definitely worth every penny for a special occasion. I will definitely be returning again for the food alone!
One small thing i might recommend, would be a bit more "choice" on the t.v channel end. Although, with the option to get a dvd from reception, this is not really a necessity.
All in all we enjoyed our night in Wineport & hopefully will return in the not so distant future.

- 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.
