Myself and my wife stayed here last night for an over night break for my wifes birthday.
This hotel has to be the most relaxing place I have ever been. I have stayed in tons of hotels overs throughout Ireland over the years, but none like the Wineport!
We did not have to lift a finger, at one point the girl working in the bar offered to carry my drink from the bar to the restaurant... talk about service! I did refuse the offer, but it was definitely one of those things that makes this place a great place to stay. For dinner, I had the steak and chips. I can be very fussy about my steak and how its cooked, but the chef managed to get it just perfect and the peppered sauce was just right drizzled over the top of the steak. The chips were pretty good too, skins left on, just the way I like them! perfect!
The staff could not have been friendlier, ensuring you had everything you needed to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We had a suite on the ground floor which was very comfortable indeed, with a deck that was literally almost hanging over the lake, with some of the best views of the lakes I have ever woken up to.
Breakfast this morning was beautiful. I don't eat tomato or runny eggs, so i didn't try them, but everything else was so nice I ate not just my own, but ate my wife's breakfast too.
All in All, this hotel has it all, and them some. Yes, it does come at a price in comparison to other hotels, but what you get for that price is simply amazing. We will be returning to the Wineport Lodge again.
- 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.
