“Second stay even better than the first”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2013

We spent a night in the Wineport and had such an enjoyable stay from the welcome to check out. I cannot fault anything in this hotel. The hot tub is so good especially on a cold, cold evening, dinner amazing and so relaxing. The next morning breakfast again was perfect. This is one of my favourite hotels and I cannot wait to go back. I think a lot of hotel staff could learn so much from the staff in the Wineport, every member of staff seems to really enjoy their job. I have recommended this hotel to lots of friends and family who all agree with me.
Keep up the good work!!!

Went for a romantic mid-week getaway to the Wineport Lodge last week as a Valentines Surprise,
Excellent deluxe room Bollinger (tks for the upgrade) with views across the lake with bubbly on the balcony at sunset was not to be missed. Then wonderful menu in the "Restaurant"and excellent wine list.Staff all round helpful and friendly.Whether for a romantic getaway or Wedding,this hotel and grounds are superb. Partner indulged in treatments in health Spa again first class, One disappointment was not having the nerve to try the outdoor hot-tub in february, a must next visit.thanks to all at the Lodge for the wonderful time.

Thanks again to the wineport. Had lovely Sunday lunch in peaceful & very comfortable environment. Staff are great and food was delicious. A warm welcome break for a small group of stressed mammies leaving the hubbys & kids at home. Will be back!!!

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend in the Wineport Lodge, we were met by friendly and efficient staff, our room was well position beside the spa and had a fabulous view of the lake, our daughter was catered for in a travel cot which doubled as a playpen! The room was lovely and cosy, space was tight with the cot and our buggy etc but still comfortable, we were met with chocolate dipped strawberries and a chilled bottle of prosecco, I had ordered a self service seaweed bath which was there for me to use as I wished!! We had bar food on Friday evening and it was lovely, the bar is a really relaxing room and the staff were very friendly! The scent of the turf fire is amazing!! Breakfast on both mornings was fantastic, you have an option of having breakfast served to your room included in your room price, but with the baby we thought it better to go to the restaurant and avail of the highchair! Again breakfast was lovely and the staff more than helpful. We both had treatments booked, my husband had a deep muscle massage, and I had a massage and facial. They were lovely and the staff were very accommodating and professional! We had a family member come and babysit while we went to the restaurant for drool on Saturday night, we had the full 3 course meal and each and every course was to die for!!! My mother who was babysitting ordered room service and really enjoyed her food!!

All in all I would certainly take a trip back to the Wineport lodge and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and restaurant!!

My partner and I have visited the Wineport on several occasions now and love it, We visited for yet another stay just before Christmas following a slightly disappointing visit in the Summer and happily, I can say that the last visit was just a blip - our recent visit was fabulous in every way! The service throughout our stay was fantastic and very attentive. We were upgraded to a suite and one in which we had stayed before - Provence - and it is absolutely beautiful. The place was beautifully decorated for Christmas and very cosy and inviting. Dinner was beautiful - to start, I had the smoked haddock and leek crostini and my partner had duck spring rolls, for mains, I had the braised shoulder of lamb and my partner had monkfish and prawns and all were excellent - we could not manage a dessert! The Wineport is a very special place - it offers fantastic food and attentive service in the most stunning setting - we will definitely be back again!

We stayed for 2 nights last October, and had a really relaxing and romantic break. From the beautiful lakeside setting, our room with the balcony looking onto the lake to the rooftop sauna, it's hard not to relax at the wineport.

We had bought a voucher for our stay on pigsback.com and found it to be really good value. Found the staff to be both friendly and helpful. The only fault I could find is that although the food was lovely, did think it was a bit overpriced, but the local village of glasson has some lovely pubs and restaurants.

Would definitely recommend this for couples who just want to get away and relax, it's got some really nice touches like the option of breakfast in bed at no extra charge, and its hard to beat being in the rooftop sauna in the evening with the stars overhead.

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.
