“Most Relaxing Night Ever”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

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.

Room Tip: Room 201 is one of the bigger suites on the ground floor with (what it looked like to us) the larges...

Just left the Wineport Lodge Restaurant after having a delicious meal.

We would highly recommend the Lebanese fried chicken for starters....Possibly the nicest starter in the world..!!!

Staff were very friendly, pleasant and very helpful..

Will be back again...

I visited here last month with my mother. We had a really enjoyable, relaxing one-night stay. The room was really nice with a great panoramic view of the lake.It wasn't hugely spacious, but suited us fine. We arrived around lunchtime and after checking in, enjoyed a light lunch in the bar. Throughout our stay, the staff were incredibly friendly and efficient and in fact they contributed massively to our enjoyment of the hotel. The evening meal in the restaurant was delicious. Our first visit, it most definitely won't be our last.

We stayed here for one night and were delighted to get upgraded to the honeymoon suite 'the Captains suite'. It was a stunning room with fabulous views,a gas fire, a lovely sitting area,music system.... all spread out over 2 floors. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was very good also.

Stayed here recently. Superb location - right on the lake. Rooms are superb. Welcome was top notch and service was great throughout. Dinner was average and not up to expectations. Everything was a little too well done and first bottle of wine was well off. However it was replaced without question. Breakfast on the other hand was fresh and piping hot. Would recommend for couples or small groups.

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.
